THIS year's performances are not normal for the dominant United Park Eagles women's team.
After making the past three finals in the Cities League, including a title win last year, the team is struggling, with just two wins this season, including a 4-1 loss to the United Warriors on Saturday.
With just four players returning from the successful campaign last year, coach Phil Harrison said the team expected to find it tough early.
"We're in a rebuilding year with up to 10 new faces," he said.
"Unfortunately we lost players to university or they retired and moved away from the game."
But expectations are still high.
They aim to be in the semi-finals at the minimum.
"There is plenty of commitment but we have no consistency at the moment with one win followed by a loss," he said.
"We've been a dominant team for the last four to five years and hope to continue that."
The team this week will face Diggers and Harrison is not taking them lightly.
"Everyone is competitive in the competition so we need to play well," he said.
Meanwhile, Brothers Aston Villa remains the team to beat with both teams still undefeated in competition.
