“The rain was definitely a challenge, but coming away with the win definitely made it worth the soggy socks,” said Lionesses captain Jordan Maddalena

“The girls played some really great football, we kept our defence tight giving us a clean sheet for the game.”

The crucial three points means the Lionesses face Boambee in the semi-finals on Saturday 10 September and avoid runaway leaders Urunga.

“Next we play second place Boambee in the semi-final, which will be a cracker game as we have come close in goal difference in our past few encounters,” she said.

“Finishing third has really given us the confidence boost that we can be up there with the best teams and have Coffs United Lionesses back in the running for competitive football for the next coming years.

“For the remainder of the season we just have to continue training hard and use our drive in our next battle for a shot in the big dance,” said Jordan.

The Urunga Raiders have been the outstanding team this season with fifteen consecutive wins and face Macleay Valley Rangers at 3pm on Saturday at Urunga in the other semi-final.
