Soccer finals spot on the line as Bangalow meets Villa
THERE will be plenty at stake in all three catch up games to be played in Far North Coast premier league football tonight.
Perhaps the most important will see Bangalow hosting Alstonville, with the winner destined to claim the fifth and final semi-final berth.
The two sides faced the same scenario last year with the Bluedogs coming out on top, but Villa is in good form after a 6-0 flogging of Goonellabah and is looking to create history by reaching the semis for the first time.
Bangalow has been disrupted by player losses in recent weeks, but on home turf are expected to provide stiff opposition.
Minor premiers Byron Bay will be looking to avoid going into the semis on the back of consecutive losses, when they host Lismore Workers.
The Rams will be boosted by the return of several key players, including Shaun Packham and Connor Cannon.
But third placed Workers have more to play for, with a win giving them a chance to finish as high as second, while a loss could see them slip as low as fourth.
The focus will be on relegation in the third game, with Tintenbar doomed to the cut if they lose their home clash against rivals Ballina.
All three games kick off at 8pm.
