A SLUMPING Strathdale can arrest its fall down the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League’s women’s championship table this weekend when it faces Golden City in round 12 of the 2018 campaign.

After bursting out of the blocks and setting the pace atop the ladder early, one win from the past four games has seen the Blues jump to sixth, but only one point off fourth.

Consecutive draws against Shepparton South and Colts United have allowed Eaglehawk and Epsom to jump above the Blues into fourth and fifth.

But with Golden City sitting a lowly 10th, Sunday’s match is the ideal opportunity for the Blues to get back on the winners’ list.

Shepparton United sits five points clear atop the table, with Shepparton South in second.

United plays fifth-placed Eaglehawk this weekend, while South plays bottom side Tatura.

In other games, Epsom plays Spring Gully United and Moama-Echuca faces Swan Hill.

In the men’s championship, Strathdale continues to lead the way and faces Golden City on Sunday.

The key match of the weekend sees second-placed Eaglehawk travelling to play Shepparton United, which sits third, two points behind the Hawks.

Epsom and Spring Gully meet at Epsom Huntly reserve, Shepparton hosts Colts United and Tatura plays Shepparton South in other matches, while Moama-Echuca has the bye.
