The Byron Bay FC premier league women’s team have maintained their dominant position on the ladder after a conclusive 4–0 win against Goonellabah, the weekend before last.

The team sits on top of the ladder with 12 wins from 15 games and just one loss against Lennox Head in round nine.

Cancelled game

The team was due to play Lennox Head again last Sunday but the game was cancelled owing to new COVID-19 restrictions. The team is set to play Alstonville this weekend in a top of the table clash.

Byron Bay have 38 competition points ahead of Alstonville (34), Lennox Head (30) and Lismore Thistles (21).

With just three rounds of regular competition left to play, the Byron Bay side is just a few competition points away from sealing the points championship.

In their win against Goonellabah the coach was pleased to see that the players had been showcasing everything that the side had been working on during training.

‘The players were on fire during the second half,’ he said.

The Byron Bay side is due to host Alstonville this Sunday, August 8, at the Byron Recreation grounds from 2.30pm.
