STATE PICKS

In Western Australia's state league, Sorrento sent a warning to finals rivals Floreat Athena with a thumping 7-2 home victory, while Bayswater City dashed Balcatta's final hopes with a solid 3-1 victory away from home.

In the Queensland State League, the FNQ Bulls and Sunshine Coast bolstered their goal difference after respective 5-0 and 7-2 away victories.  Both sides will be harbouring hopes of finals success after table-toppers Brisbane Strikers' shock 3-2 home defeat to seventh-placed Queensland Academy.   

The Adelaide Raiders narrowly held onto a FFSA finals spot despite losing 3-1 at home to Croydon Kings, with Western Strikers failing to beat NE Metrostars away from home. The qualifing final sees third-placed Blue Eagles taking on fourth-placed Metro Stars, with the elimination final set for a mouthwatering Adelaide derby.

In the capital, Belconnen United scored a narrow 1-0 victory away to finals contenders Canberra Olympic, while Canberra City ended an indifferent run of form with a 3-0 home win over cellar dwellers Monaro Panthers.

In Tasmania's Southern Premier League, the Tilford Zebras kept up finals pressure on the Kinborough Lions with a big 4-1 away win against the University of Tasmania, while league-leading South Hobart dashed the finals hopes of Olympic Warriors with a narrow 2-1 away victory. In the Northen League, Riverside Olympic dropped out of the last finals spot on goal difference after a crushing 6-2 away defeat to third-placed Devonport City.  

In the Brisbane Premier League, Redland United opened up a narrow lead at the top of the table after Wolves FC drew 3-3 with sixth placed Brisbane Olympic at home. Queensland Lions wasted their chance to jump into finals contention, losing 3-2 at home to Peninsula Power.

In the Northern NSW State League, the Edgeworth Eagles booked a place in the semi-finals with an emphatic 6-2 away win over Charlestown City in the elimination final, while the Newcastle Jets Youth get another chance after narrowly losing 3-2 to Broadmeadow Magic in the preliminary final.
