Salisbury Inter vs FFSA NTC 
Venue: VALO Football Centre 
Date: 22/03/2019 06:15 PM

Salisbury Inter has surprised the WNPL this season after an impressive stoppage-time winner against Adelaide Uni last week thanks to a Chantelle Ryder strike. Inter are undefeated in 2019 and face an underperforming NTC squad in Round 3. NTC impressed the eyes of the league in the Mitise Pre-Season Cup, however, have not begun their 2019 league campaign well. having conceded 7 goals in 2 matches, the NTC defence has had a tough week at training to ensure Emily Condon doesn’t continue her goal-scoring spree tonight. Inter will be out to remain undefeated in 2019 whilst NTC aim to prove they belong in the top-flight.

West Adelaide v Metro United

West Adelaide vs Metro United WFC
Venue: West Beach Parks Football Centre
Date: 22/03/2019 08:00 PM

West Adelaide is coming off two strong wins in the opening rounds against Fulham and NTC, which has allowed them to prepare for their first tough encounter of the 2019 season when they take on reigning premiers, Metro United. West Adelaide plays at West Beach Parks for the first time this year and hopes to have strong home support when they try to knock-off Metro who is coming off a strong 4-1 win on Saturday Night against newly promoted Adelaide Comets. Metro showed in the second half why they have earned the name of “one of the big 3” in the league. With the first rivalry of 2019 taking place, this game is one not to be missed, with a close scoreline to be predicted.

City v Comets

Venue: VALO Football Centre 
Date: 22/03/2019 08:15 PM

Adelaide Comets faced the reigning premiers in Round 2, and just to ensure they are welcomed to the top-flight, they face the reigning champions in Round 3. Adelaide City will be coming out full of confidence after netting 8 goals past Fulham United in Round 2 to give them naming rights as the team to chase early on in the season. Comets, however, showed to be the better team in the first half against Metro last week, ensuring the score was 1-1 at half time. If they continue their style of football, they can push City to the limits and open up the league as one for any team to win. Comets will be out to prove themselves this week and seek to get their first points of the 2019 season.
