Round 3 & 4 Preview – Futsal Premier League Open Men’s


With seven games played across two rounds this long weekend, it’s a big weekend in the complexion of the Futsal Premier League Open Men’s Competition.

Yes by the end of Monday, six teams will have played four games as the standings begin to take shape, so let’s take a look at how teams are shaping up leading into this potentially crucial weekend.

Campbelltown City Quake Futsal Club

Weekend fixtures: Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club (A), Dural Warriors (A)

Improvement was there for all to see for Campbelltown City Quake last weekend. After conceding seven goals the week previous, they tightened things up against a fancied Inner West side last weekend. After the match, coach Brett Hewit was very happy with the performance which included many debuts including keeper Tomas Bukovic.

Dural Warriors

Weekend Fixtures: Mascot Vipers (H), Campbelltown City Quake (H)

It’s perhaps surprising to see a team such as Dural Warriors struggling at the bottom of the table. Still it’s early days though and two quickfire games could well be the spark that they need going forward. Last weekend it was a defeat to Enfield Allstars with Hamza Sweedan providing their solitary goal.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club

Weekend Fixture: Campbelltown City Quake (H)

One of only two clubs to have a one game weekend, Eastern Suburbs Hakoah bounced back to winning ways in round two in dramatic fashion. Starring in that match were both Wellington Oliveira and Lucas Vidal who both picked up a brace in the teams five goal haul. They’ll go into their match against the Quake as favourites.

Enfield Allstars

Weekend Fixture: Inner West (A)

The leagues early high scorers take too the pitch just the once this weekend as Enfield Allstars make their first away trip when they take on Inner West. In their two opening fixtures, they have simply been irresistible triumphing against the Quake and Dural Warriors. So far the goalscoring has been shared around nicely with six different goal scorers.

Inner West Futsal Club

Weekend Fixtures: Enfield Allstars (H), UTS Northside (H)

It’s safe to say it was so important for Inner West to emerge victorious in their round two meeting with the Quake. Yet to hit their full potential on the pitch, Alexander Nicolosi came up with the crucial goal on the half hour while a late penalty save will give them a confidence boost leading into the next two games which look a tough task on paper.

Mascot Vipers

Weekend Fixtures: Dural Warriors (A), Mountain Majik (A)

Another side with a one win and loss record after two rounds, Mascot Vipers will be looking to rebound after a round two loss. In a high quality contest against another strong side in UTS Northside. Both Conor and Thomas Quilligan found the net as they came from behind twice but fell short of claiming a point. With two important fixtures ahead, this is an important couple of games across the weekend.

Mountain Majik

Weekend Fixtures: UTS Northside (A), Mascot Vipers (H)

If there’s one thing we can promise when Mountain Majik take the pitch, it’s entertainment. Playing in a couple of thrillers across the past fortnight, who would bet against it happening again this weekend. Last weekend there were still positive signs despite their victory with Jordan Guerreiro, Adam Nisbet and Christopher Barbara finding the net.

UTS Northside

Weekend Fixtures: Mountain Majik (H), Inner West (A)

Last but certainly not least, UTS Northside will look to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they face both Mountain Majik and Inner West. Basing their success on their work off the ball, keepers Dylan Niski and Jett Griffiths stood out with several crucial saves to ensure the narrow victory. With player due to come back this weekend, confidence will be high going into their two games.
