Big Two Clash In Second Round Of Women's Cup

22 June 2009 - The two most successful clubs in the history of the Women's Knockout Cup, Three Kings United and Lynn Avon United, will meet in a titanic second round clash on Sunday.

Three Kings closed out the 1990s with a three-peat of titles but eight time winners and reigning champions Lynn Avon have since enjoyed unparalleled dominance, winning seven of the last nine editions including five straight titles between 2002 and 2006.

The two clubs are also locked in a battle for Northern league honours with Lynn Avon currently sitting on a seven point lead.

Fresh from a record equalling 20-0 win in the first round, Hamilton's Claudelands Rovers travel to Crown Park to take on Taupo while last year's beaten finalists Western face Avon in Christchurch.

In Wellington, perennial semi-finalists Seatoun are away to Waterside Karori while Lower Hutt hosts Upper Hutt in a heated cup derby.

The North Shore's great hope Glenfield Rovers entertain Forrest Hill Milford and either Northern or Roslyn Wakari will emerge from the last Football South fixture.

The women's knockout cup remains regional until the semi finals in August with the final played at North Harbour Stadium on the weekend of September 19 or 20.
