NORTH Coast Football’s junior representative sides have made it a clean sweep of wins for the fourth round in a row of their NPL Boys Northern NSW season.
North Coast Football won all four of their matches against the visiting Lake Macquarie City sides at the Coffs Football Centre synthetics.
It follows their recent clean sweep of Charlestown Azzuri in Lake Macquarie, before having the bye for the long weekend.
The under 16s extended their lead at the top of the ladder with a 6-2 win against Lake Macquarie.
The under 14s maintained second spot on the ladder with a 7-1 victory, while North Coast Football under 13s and 15s both had 4-1 wins in Round 15.
North Coast Football sides have been on quite a roll lately, but now face one of the powerhouse sides of the competition which North Coast Football Player and Coach Technical Development Manager Alex Nolan said would provide a considerable challenge they hadn’t seen in recent weeks.
“We haven’t lost in five weeks, but we’ve got our biggest challenge we’ve had in awhile when we host Maitland this weekend,” he said.
“They are a top team amongst most age groups, and our boys and girls are looking forward to the challenge.
“It will be good to have a nice high intensity in the matches which Maitland will bring.”
Nolan said North Coast Football sides made strong starts against Lake Macquarie.
“We came out strong in every age group with some early goals and didn’t let them back in the game,” he said.
North Coast Football have hosting duties again this weekend when they take on Maitland FC at the Coffs Football Centre synthetics on Sunday afternoon.
Maitland currently sits third in the under 16s, and fourth in both the under 13s and 15s.
