Victory League

Glenorchy Knights 2 (M Kamba 15, N Di Falco 83) lost to Kingborough Lions United 4 (N Cuthbertson 28, 77, A Hedge 48, D Cowen 69)

Victory League leaders South Hobart will hope to beat fourth-placed Northern Rangers at 4pm at KGV Park tomorrow and that Olympia and Zebras draw later that day at Warrior Park.

If that scenario comes to fruition, South Hobart will find themselves 8 points clear at the top and with just four games remaining.

Bottom-side Launceston City will be seeking their second Victory League win in a row and only their third in all when they host fifth-placed Devonport City at Mitsubishi Park at 6pm tomorrow.

But, history is against them as Devonport beat them 5-2 the last time they met and they have yet to beat the North-West Coast outfit in the Victory League.

Third-placed Olympia Warriors will introduce their new Mexican signing Hector Guerra when they take on second-ranked Tilford Zebras in the Victory League clash at Warrior Park at 7pm tomorrow.

The 23-year-old midfielder has replaced Englishman Alex Ralph for this week as Olympia’s second visa player.

Glenorchy Knights meet Kingborough Lions United at 8pm today at KGV Park in a game that is important to both sides.

Knights are in 7th place on the Victory League standings and are just 3 points adrift of 6th-placed Lions, who have an inferior goal-difference to the hosts.
