This weeks Oporto Youth Leagues ‘Match of the Week’ takes us to Kariong Oval where the Kariong United U/13 D’s take on the East Gosford Rams.

The third placed Cougars will look to take top spot on the table when they face the East Gosford side who currently occupy first position, two points ahead of their opponents.

Last weekends Oporto Youth Leagues ‘Match of the Week’ saw the M/15B Berkeley Vale Wombats welcome Umina United to Kurraba Oval. The first placed Wombats were to extend their lead over the rest of the competition after they put five goals past the Eagles to register a 5-2 win, moving them to 26 points, 7 points ahead of second placed. That second position is no longer occupied by the Eagles, with the loss meaning they fell back to third position.

Looking ahead to tomorrows match, Kariong head into the match in great form having won each of their previous three matches without conceding a goal. Tomorrows match will be the second time these sides have met so far this campaign, with the last meeting resulting in a 3-0 win for East Gosford. The Cougars will be looking to overturn that result, especially given they can take first place with a victory.

East Gosford also head into the match in great form, yet to register a loss after 11 matches. The Rams last match saw them defeat Wyong 8-0 whilst only a few weeks ago they played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with the second placed Mountains side. They’ll be hoping to repeat the 3-0 win they achieved the last time the two sides met back in round five.

The match is set to take place at Kariong Oval, one of the few Central Coast grounds to emerge relatively unscathed after the heavy downfall experienced earlier in the week, so if you’re in the area make sure you get to the ground and cheer on the two sides!
