Two virtual "Grand Finals" on Sunday at Gough Whitlam Park

Post date: Oct 1, 2020 11:13:08 PM

Some huge games coming up this Sunday at Gough Whitlam Park in what is the last round of the season. Two games are virtually considered "Grand Finals" as the top two teams in both divisions play each other in the final round to see who will finish first in their respective competition.

At 9am the U12/5s do battle against Abbotsford. Abbotsford held the lead all season until last weekend. In their last 5 games they have only recorded one win and had 3 draws and one loss. In contrast, the Titans have had one draw and won their last 4 matches on the trot. Their only previous meeting ended in a draw. The teams are so evenly matched that their win/draw/loss record is identical at 8 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss.. As both teams sit level on 28 points, a draw is all that is needed by Cooks River to take the title as they have the superior goal difference but coach David Kavanagh has stated his team will be going out for the win.

At 11.15am the U14/1s have a big clash against Enfield Rovers. Enfield had led the table for the majority of the season but a recent draw saw Cooks River take the lead only for Cooks River to suffer a subsequent draw and again relinquish the lead. In their last 5 games they have both won 4 matches and drawn one. The Rovers took the spoils on their only previous meeting winning 3-0 but the scoreline didn’t really reflect the game. Enfield sit on 30 points with 9 wins and 3 draws while the Titans have 9 wins, 2 draws and one loss to sit a point behind on the table. If Cooks River can inflict Enfield’s first loss of the season then the Titans will be crowned champions. Coach Sasha Jovanovic has his players well drilled and go into the game with confidence they cap off a great season with a win.
