Venue: VALO Football Centre
Date: 24/05/2019 06:15 PM

Fulham United look to continue their winning form with an upset against Metro United. Coming off a win against Adelaide Uni in Round 10 and then FFSA in the cup, Fulham will be out in force tonight to continue their fight to climb the table. Moving up to 6th spot has boosted the confidence of the squad who will be out to fight against the reigning premiers. Metro will be out to redeem themselves after a disappointing Round 10 loss to West Adelaide. Metro has slipped to 4th on the table, however, a win tonight can see them jump up to 2nd spot. Reigning Golden Boot winner, and current Leading goal scorer, Chrissy Panagaris continues her outstanding form out front this season and will look to continue scoring goals. Panagaris currently sits on 12 goals in 10 games, however, will be looking to inform Kristy Moore and Laura Stockdale to ensure they get the ball past Fulham’s Matilda Comley. Fulham will be without Katherine who scored their 94th-minute winner against Uni, however, they will look to the experience of W-League star, Jenna Mccormick for the win tonight.

West Adelaide vs Adelaide Comets
Venue: West Beach Parks Football Centre
Date: 24/05/2019 06:15 PM

New Adelaide Comets recruit Georgie Nicola comes up against her old club in West Adelaide for the first time tonight when the two clubs meet at West Beach Parks. Adelaide Comets come off a whopping 9-0 loss to league leaders Adelaide City in Round 10, however, both clubs enter tonight’s fixture after coming off impressive cup wins last Friday night to progress to the Quarter Finals. West Adelaide is sitting in 3rd spot, with Comets in 7th spot, fighting with NTC to not be in that relegation spot. West Adelaide can move into 2nd spot with a win tonight, however, Comets will want to jump up the ladder and allow some breathing space. New Comets recruit Mariah Aplin is back in the WNPL after spending some time over in the USA playing College Soccer. She joins her former coach and a few teammates from Sturt Marion at Adelaide Comets and looks to showcase her talent from the USA into the local WNPL competition. Is she the player that Comets need to energise their season? West Adelaide will look to shut down all attacks with Sarah Willacy at the helm.

Adelaide University vs FFSA NTC
Venue: West Beach Parks Football Centre
Date: 24/05/2019 08:00 PM

Evelyn Goldsmith will make her first appearance against her old club when Adelaide Uni tackle league strugglers FFSA NTC tonight at West Beach Parks. Both clubs come off cup losses last week and will look to bounce back from the defeats. Having a clear mind and focus purely on the league from now on in, both clubs will look to win every crucial game to ensure they keep the gap close between themselves and the top 4. Adelaide Uni has farewelled their two recruits from England, Daisy Allen, and Alex Windell and look to rebuild with a new look line up. Lauren Mather gets her first call-up to the Seniors after showing her talent in Division 1, being promoted to the Reserves, now the WNPL side. Adelaide Uni will also be without star player, Meleri Mullan who came off injured in Round 10. The oldest player in this match will only be 24, with this potentially being one of the “youngest” fixtures of the WNPL history. Will the “battle of the young” prove to be a fat energetic game? A win for either team will help with their fight to remain in the top-flight, with Uni fighting to stay in reach of the top 4 and push for finals.

Salisbury Inter vs Adelaide City FC
Venue: VALO Football Centre
Date: 24/05/2019 08:15 PM

For the second time this season, Salisbury Inter and Adelaide City will meet in the first v second on the table clash. Adelaide City continues to star in the league, sitting 5 points clear on top of the table. A win tonight for City tonight will all but clear a pathway for their first premiership in the WNPL. Salisbury Inter, however, continues to have their best ever season in the WNPL and look to knock off the league leaders to keep that second spot, but also close the gap and make for an exciting finish to the season. City, however, may have the upper hand with Goalkeeper Sian McLaren not named for tonight’s big match. Adelaide City also welcomes back Claudia Jenkins who returns after another stint in the College Soccer system in the USA. The star Goalkeeper will be out to impress her new coach and ensure the likes of Emily Condon don’t get one through to the back of the net. Condon sits 3rd on the leading goal scoring table on 11 goals in 10 games. She will look to continue her star form with some goals tonight to secure another win for Inter and to make sure the gap between themselves and City closes on the table. The match of the round will prove to be a decisive one and most definitely the one to watch tonight down at the VALO Football Centre.

Salisbury Inter line-up: 2. Melanie Comyns, 5. Esther M Heywood-smith, 6. Chantelle Ryder (C), 8. Nicole Calder, 10. Emily Condon, 11. Nicola Frazzetto, 14. Jasmine Hurst, 15. Sarah Taylor, 17.
