Battle for top four spots in DOOLEYS Metro League

The 2017 DOOLEYS Metro League is heading towards the tail end of the regular season with Round 14 underway this week and only five to go before Finals are here.

The league has been producing action-packed play every week at the Genea Netball Centre with the sides from Divisions 3 and 4 taking to the courts on Mondays, Divisions 5 and 6 in action on Tuesdays, and Divisions 1 and 2 rounding out the activity on Thursdays.

Here is a quick look at how things are shaping this week in the run-in to Finals:

In Division 1 Hunter United are leading the way with a five-point advantage over Eastwood Ryde. Following behind in third and fourth positions are Illawarra District  and Bankstown City with Northern Suburbs and Baulkham Hills Shire in fifth and sixth.

Blue Mountains and Hills District are in a two-way lead at the top of Division 2, with both teams sitting on 24 points, just ahead of their closest competitors Randwick in third while Campbelltown round out the top four as it currently stands.

Inner Western Suburbs lead the way in Division 3, four points clear of Parramatta Auburn, who are only just ahead of Central Coast in third. Eastwood Ryde hold onto the fourth position for now, just ahead of Randwick.

In Division 4 Inner Western Suburbs are five points ahead of the closest chasers in Hunter United, while third position is hotly contested by Liverpool and Central Coast. However, St George District and Northern Suburbs are looking for any opportunity to break into the top four positions for a Semi Final place.

Inner Western Suburbs, Penrith District, and Illawarra District are out in front on equal 22 points – in that order – in Division 5, but there is a real fight for the last Finals spot with Hawkesbury City (4th), Bankstown City (5th), Campbelltown District (6th) all bunched together in pursuit of it.

In Division 6 Camden & District are in the top spot on goal difference from Liverpool City on 23 points, while Hills District follow closely only one point behind. Campbelltown District round out the top four but are eight points off first place and under pressure from the likes of Parramatta Auburn and Blue Mountains to keep their Finals hopes on track.
