SELECT Futsal Premier League – Round 4 Open Women’s Preview
The 2018-19 SELECT Futsal Premier League round-four Saturday match-ups will send a fox into the hen-house with a top-two blockbuster and key meetings across the board.
It’s make or break for plenty of teams as the open women’s continues to puzzle everyone with its possible outcomes and club championship effect.
Mountain Majik vs Inner West Magic
What a treat for fans when Mountain Majik meet Inner West at Blacktown Leisure Centre in a mouth-watering top-of-the-table Saturday afternoon clash (3.10pm).
Inner West are in a familiar place on top on goal-difference and with a miserly defensive line that’s conceded just one goal in three rounds.
Coming at Magic is a sparkling Majik frontline that’s netted 15 times in three weeks, Ashlie Crofts leading the way with a scorching eight goals already, but she’s already had four team-mates pitch in too.
Campbelltown Quake vs UTS Northside
It’s third-vs-fourth as UTS Northside travel to Minto Indoor Sports Centre to face Campbelltown Quake on Saturday afternoon (3.50pm).
UTS have been a top-four regular for the last three years running, the same amount of time Quake haven’t been in the premier league finals.
With this season tightening up following the introduction of a strong Eastern Suburbs outfit this result is crucial to both sides’ fortunes.
Dural Warriors vs Mascot Vipers
Dural Warriors welcome Mascot Vipers to The Centre on Saturday evening (5.50pm) and it could be the first time ever they’ve met under these circumstances.
Dural have made the post-season dance the last six years running, winning once versus Mascot’s two titles, but here they are in round four facing up as bottom-three teams.
Usually a potent force Warriors have ruffled the onion bag just three times this summer but may boost that figure against a Vipers side that’s leaked a comp-low 14 goals so far.
Easts Hakoah vs Enfield Allstars
Something’s got to give when Eastern Suburbs Hakoah tackle Enfield Allstars at All Sorts Indoor Sports centre on Saturday night (7.50pm).
Easts have promised plenty with their Brazilian guests helping them score 13 goals already, Tamires Souza’s knocking in a neat half-dozen, but they’ve also conceded a dozen to drop two games already so they’ll be primed to get back on the accelerator.
Enfield are without a point to their name and have everything to play for.
