Adelaide City Women’s National Premier League team will take on arch rival Metro United Women’s FC in the final round of the PlayStation 4 Women’s National Premier League 2016 Season this Friday (26th August) with kick off scheduled for at 8:00pm at Elite Systems Football Centre, Cowan Street, Angle Park.
The match pits 1 v 2 on the competition ladder, with Metro United holding an unassailable four point buffer going into the final game of the regular season. The last time the two teams met in the NPL season Adelaide City FC’s Georgia Campagnale threw herself into the top of table clash by providing the only score of the match in the 8th minute of the Round 14 fixture before being sent from the field in the 62nd minute for a second yellow. Earlier in the season City defeated Metro to bring home the pre-season Charity Cup, before tying the 1st Round encounter. The red and black team will be eager to turn the tables, and City will be looking to make up for last week’s loss to West Adelaide.
Coach Edorado Rosso gives his pre game insight into the match. “This week brings us to the end of the regular season and we are thrilled about having qualified for the final series and cup final. We knew that the season would be challenging and that it would provide us with a lot of opportunities for growth, which the team has embraced achieving an impressive streak of wins. The girls have a consolidated system of play, and each and every one has contributed greatly to where we are now. This week we have to dig deep to continue our season-long duel with Metro in the best possible fashion, showing once again our strong team spirit and commitment to our club. We look forward to this big game and of course to the excitement of the next few weeks.”
FFSA will be supporting Cure4CF Foundation in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis on the night. All gate takings from the Round of 21 games will be donated to the Foundation. FFSA Chief Executive, Michael Carter, believes Friday night will a great sight for all involved. “Friday night is an opportunity for the State footballing community to come together as one and support this important cause in its research efforts to find a cure for this disease” he said.
