It’s a top of the table clash to kick off Round 14 of the National Premier Leagues Women’s (NPLW) competition when Moreton Bay United take on Lions FC.
Moreton Bay had an 11-0 win over Western Pride last week, which saw Rylee Baisden score seven while teammate Rhianna Pollicina scored a double.
After their first round loss to Lions, they haven’t dropped points and are currently on a 10 game winning streak.
However, Lions are also undefeated but have dropped points twice so far, including last weekend when they had to come from behind in a 2-2 draw with Gold Coast United.
The two teams have already played each other in the opening round of the season, with Lions coming away 2-0 winners in that encounter.
Moreton Bay have not beaten Lions in their three meetings so far.

The Gap v Logan Lightning
After a narrow win when they last met and having never lost to Logan, The Gap will be looking to continue this streak when they meet again this weekend. Logan sit one point behind The Gap, with teams in the top six playing to solidify their spots when it comes to finals time.
