Manly Warringah is leading the way in the 15/U Championship division after Day 2 having recorded 11 wins and two draws. Liverpool City are a point behind Manly on 23-points, with host Association Baulkham Hills also in contention on 22-points, as is Ku-ring-gai who are further two points back.

Liverpool City’s six from six on Day 2 saw them leapfrog Sutherland at the top of the 14/U Championship division ladder by a slim one point margin. Campbelltown are a further point back on 22-points, with Penrith District also in contention on 21.

Both Baulkham Hills and Wyong have lost just the one game over the first two days, spilt only by goals for/against. Manly Warringah has the best goal difference in the division and are just one point behind the ladder-leaders. However, all three will be looking over their shoulders with Illawarra only a win off top spot.

Liverpool City and Wyong sit atop the ladder on 22-points after Day 2 action, however the latter has a game in hand. Manly Warringah are hot on their heels with 20-points, and both Sutherland Shire and Illawarra are still in the hunt on 16-points apiece.

The top four teams are spread across only two points on the ladder. Orange (21), Blue Mountains (20), Charlestown (20) and Ballina (19) lead three teams on 18-points; Kiama, St George and Great Lakes.

Wagga Wagga sit atop the ladder on 21-points but have played a game more than the chasing pack. Lakeside sit a point back but have a superior goals for/against over the ladder-leaders, and don’t rule out Orange who are currently in third on 18-points.

One point is all that separates each of the top three contenders in the 13/U Division Two Championship; Wagga Wagga, Lakeside and Blue Mountains continue to set the pace with the latter on 18-points. Both Charlestown and Inner Western are both on 15, with Hastings Valley and Bathurst on 14-points.

Invitational side South Canberra leads all teams in the 14/U Division 3 ladder, falling to defeat just the once in 13 games. As they are invitational, they aren’t able to take out the title, which will delight Great Lakes who sit a point behind South Canberra on 23-points. Lower Clarence end Day 2 on 20-points and Shoalhaven only a further point behind.

It continues to be a tight race at the top of the 13/U Division 3 ladder with Muswellbrook currently leading the way on 23-points with Queanbeyan two points behind but have a game in hand. Barellan are a point back on 20 and then three teams sit on 18-points; Taree, Nambucca and Nelson Bay.
