It’s impossible to predict who will win today’s Women’s State-wide Cup Final scheduled for KGV Park at 2.30pm.

Olympia Warriors and Clarence Zebras are too evenly matched and their league meetings have been decided by a single goal.

Olympia are the league champions and have had the better of recent meetings between the sides so this may just tip the scales in their favour.

Bonnie Davies, the Women’s Super League top scorer could be the difference between the sides.

If she breaks away, no-one can catch her, so Clarence Zebras will need to watch her closely.

Both goalkeepers are in excellent form and this could be a low-scoring game yet again.

The midfield battle could also help decide the outcome.

The sides are evenly matched in this department and that could be why games between the two sides are always so close.

Speed and finishing are the two qualities that will be essential today and whichever side harnesses these attributes should come out on top.

Today’s program begins at noon when Glenorchy Knights and Olympia Warriors contest the Men’s Under-20 State-wide Cup Final.

The two teams are unknown quantities in a way as there is no Under-20 league, so the outcome may be decided on team selection and who gets to play.
