It will be a Saturday full of National Premier Leagues Women’s (NPLW) Queensland games with the Match of the Round between The Gap and Moreton Bay United closing out the night.
The last time the two sides met was in Round 25 of the 2018 season with The Gap coming away with a 4-0 win on their way to the 2018 Grand Final.
Two goal scorers from that day are no longer wearing the purple with Tiarne Petterwood returning to Logan Lightning for the 2019 season, while Jessica Dillon will be lining up for Moreton Bay.
Moreton Bay are currently on a seven game winning streak and head into their clash against The Gap after a 10-0 win over SWQ Thunder last round.
Lauren Askin found her first goal of the season then added two more to her tally that day to produce a hat-trick.
The Gap left it late in their Round 8 clash against Gold Coast United with Talitha Doro striking in the 91st minute to snatch a draw.
Both teams sit within the top four, with only five points separating the two sides who sit in first and fourth respectively.
