Queens' turn in Tweed football spotlight

TONIGHT it's the Tweed Valley Queens' moment to shine.

Because tonight, they play for their grand final lives.

Tackling third-placed Palm Beach at Jim Devine Oval, the Queens are out to claim their piece of history.

The Queens have enjoyed remarkable success in their debut premier league season, scalping each of their Gold Coast Soccer rivals en route to a magnificent runners-up finish.

Conversely, their male counterparts - the TV Kings - last week played for their premier league lives.

But when it mattered the men stood up and prevailed, twice, ensuring a start in next season's top flight.

Now it's the women, who must rise to the occasion and give themselves a second crack at minor premiers Nerang in the final.

The Queens won their final six games of the regular season before last week's bitter 2-1 loss in the dying seconds to Nerang in the first semi-final.

During their six game streak they toppled Nerang 3-2 and thrashed Palm Beach 5-1, turning a mid season lull into the competition's best run home.

Furthermore, the Queen's have triumphed in all but one game on home soil, including the massive 5-1 trouncing of Nerang in Murwillumbah and will now enjoy home ground advantage once more tonight.

However, having drawn twice and lost once to Palm Beach earlier in the year, Belinda Dawney's women know they are in for an epic tussle with their cross border rivals.

The Tweed's premier women's soccer team will be in action from 7.30pm.
