Showdown looms for Lynn-Avon
Seven-time National Women’s Knockout Cup winners Lynn-Avon United scored a 1-0 triumph over holders Western Springs at Seddon Fields on Sunday.
The victory sets them up for a showdown with Canterbury’s Western club at North Harbour Stadium on September 13.
The close-fought encounter was goal-less until the 74th minute, when Sarah Gregorius gave the Springs defence the slip, lobbing the ball into the top left-hand corner of the net.
On Sunday the two teams clash again in the Northern Premier Women’s League at Ken Maunder Park from 1pm.
At 10.30am on Sunday, Three Kings United travel to Madills Farm to take on Eastern Suburbs in another league fixture.
