City has chance to lock in women’s Premier League Hockey finals place

BATHURST City can lock up a women’s Premier League Hockey finals appearance with victory over Souths this Saturday.

Souths are the only team remaining who can shake up the top four with just two rounds remaining, and City are in their firing line.

If City can claim victory over their Bathurst rivals then the finals picture will be established for both clubs: One makes it, the other misses out.

City are bound to be buoyed by last round’s 1-0 win over Lithgow Panthers that ended a four-game winless run.

During that time City’s juniors stepped into key positions and helped the club get through a tricky period.

City were 3-0 victors in the last contest against the two blues but they will be on full alert against a Souths lineup playing to keep their faint Premier League Hockey finals hopes aflame.

Brooke McFadden’s absence for the remainder of the season will leave big shoes to fill in City’s ranks.
