Striker gives East Armidale hope for semis

YOUNG East Armidale striker Jacob Davies has struck form at the right time of the year.

The talented forward scored twice for East in last Saturday’s stunning 2-nil win over North Armidale Redmen.

It not only propelled Davies to a two-goal lead in the PL’s Golden Boot over North Companions striker Ben van Aanholt but also gave his side an outside chance of playing in the PL finals playoffs.

The East Armidale win could have also helped Joeys FC win the Northern Conference minor premiership.

Joeys play Demon Knights in a huge final-round match at Armidale’s Rologas 2 field tomorrow.

A win will earn Joeys the top spot over a North Armidale side that has the final-round bye.

A win would also end DK’s semi-final hopes. They are equal fourth with East Armidale entering the final round and need a win or a draw to stay alive as well.

Down south, the PL minor premiership has been decided.

Tamworth FC won that when it  secured a nil-all draw with North Companions last week.

That opened the door for Oxley Vale Attunga though to try to leapfrog North Companions this weekend.

While North Companions go to Narrabri to play Namoi United, OVA has a home game against a Gunnedah United spearheaded by Andy Cygan’s goalscoring efforts.

Cygan moved to outright third on the Golden Boot with his hat-trick for United in last Saturday’s 7-nil win over Moree FC.

OVA pair Adam Watson and Luke Purcell are equal fourth with 16 goals apiece.

In tomorrow’s other  PL Southern Conference game, Gunnedah Hawks go to Moree to play Moree FC while South Armidale is at home to Guyra United in their Northern Conference clash.
