Campbelltown Quake Boomerangs FS Minto Sports Stadium 4.50pm Saturday 9 November
UTS Northside Enfield Allstars PCYC Dee Why 4.50pm Saturday 9 November
Eastern Subs Hakoah Mountain Majik All Sorts Sports Centre 5.30pm Saturday 9 November
Mascot Vipers Inner West Magic Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre 6.50pm Saturday 9 November
Campbelltown Quake v Boomerangs FS
Campbelltown Quake boast a superior record over Boomerangs FS but won’t be taking them lightly at Minto Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The only Territorian victory over Quake came in a clinical 2-0 2017 Futsal Cup quarter-final win; in league matches Campbelltown’s won all but a 3-3 draw in late-2013.
Having said that Boomerangs have found some form in recent weeks, unbeaten in three rounds including last weekend’s stunning 3-2 upset of comp-leaders Mascot.
Campbelltown welcome back some of its key personnel and will still be favourites to win.
UTS Northside v Enfield Allstars
UTS Northside could use their match against Enfield Allstars at PCYC Dee Why on Saturday evening as a playoff catapult.
Sitting a point outside the top-four, UTS victory over win-less Allstars could see them jump as high as third, and they certainly hold the wood over Enfield historically winning nine of 12 clashes – a 2-2 draw in late-2014 as close as Enfield’s got on Northside turf.
In fact, Allstars haven’t beaten UTS since November 2015 and have lost their last five road games overall to be really up against it this weekend.
Eastern Suburbs Hakoah v Mountain Majik
Eastern Suburbs Hakoah versus Mountain Majik will be a great match-up at All Sorts Indoor Sports Centre on Saturday evening.
Back-to-back victories for the first time have propelled Easts into fourth-spot and they can make further inroads up the ladder if they register a first win against Mountain following double-defeats last summer and a 2-2 opening-round stalemate.
Hakoah’s Tamires Souza has scored in all three games she’s played against Majik.
Mascot Vipers v Inner West Magic
Mascot Vipers play Inner West Magic in a blockbuster Saturday-night showdown at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre.
Comp-leaders Mascot were humbled 3-2 by Boomerangs on the weekend and won’t be in a mood to share the love any further as they zero in on a third premiership in the last eight years.
Inner West have dropped their last two runs – they’ve only ever lost three on the trot twice in the past eight years and not since 2014.
It can’t get any closer between the sides historically with eight wins apiece and a draw, and there’ll be plenty of individual battles too with current Magic’s league-leading scorer Rhianna Pollicina (13 goals in seven rounds) putting 14 past Vipers in their last seven clashes.
On the other side Mascot’s Mariel Hecher’s blasted 13 goals in just four matches against Inner West, and team-mate Marcella Santos buried four in Vipers’ remarkable 7-2 opening round victory over Magic.
