Cambridge’s last hopes of bringing home at least one title for the senior season rest on games this weekend.
Here’s how the weekend shapes up:
Lotto NRFL second division
The Reds travel to division champions Takapuna for their final fixture of the season.
So tight is the division that a win could see Cambridge end the season as high as fourth on the table, despite getting clear of the relegation zone only a game ago. A loss (and other results going against us) could see the Reds settle as low as ninth.
The final round of games will also decide who Cambridge will play next season. Already promoted are Takapuna and Bucklands Beach and two of the bottom three could be gone from the competition next year. They are Onehunga Mangere United, Te Atatu and Papakura City.
Lotto NRFL reserves competition
The Reds’ second string squad can bring home the Northern League’s second division reserves title with a win at Takapuna.
The Reds sit in second place to Takapuna with both teams on 50 points. The Aucklanders have a goal difference that is three goals better than Cambridge.
This means Takapuna can take the title on September 1 with a win or draw against Cambridge at Taharoto Park, whereas a win to the Reds will ensure the title comes to John Kerkhof Park.
Waikato Division D
Cambridge’s D1 team go into the final weekend of the season still able to win their division if they beat Tokoroa and nearest rivals Te Aroha Cobras lose.
However, the D1s will need fellow clubmates D2s to cause an upset win against division leaders Te Aroha Cobras to help bring home the title.
The D1s host Tokoroa at John Kerkhof Park, kicking off at 12.30pm, and will then anxiously await the outcome of the D2’s match at Te Aroha which starts at 2.45pm.
Our women’s team has no game this weekend.
