Round 5 Preview – Futsal Premier League Open Women’s


Round Five of the Futsal Premier League Open Women’s competition is upon us and with it the entertainment that it brings.

With plenty on the line, 2nd play 3rd in the pick of the fixtures though there’s plenty to get you excited.

UTS Northside Futsal Club v Campbelltown City Quake Futsal Club; Saturday 8 October, 4:30pm @ PCYC Dee Why

The only team yet to taste defeat in the open categories, UTS Northside look to continue their run when they take on Campbelltown City Quake this weekend.

UTS Northside just know how to win currently as they grow in confidence with every positive result. They impressively walked away from last weekend with both a victory over Mountain Majik and Inner West. Look out for Daisy Arrowsmith who is very much pulling their strings in attack notching an impressive four goals last weekend.

They will face a Campbelltown City Quake side who will be desperate to score their first victory of the season. Yeah, mounting injuries and a hint of misfortune has seen them towards the wrong end of the table after four rounds. With nothing to lose in this one, don’t write off an upset just yet when these two meet.

Mascot Vipers v Inner West Futsal Club; Saturday 8 October, 4:30pm @ Sydney Olympic Park Sports Halls

Mascot Vipers host Inner West in a midtable battle at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Hall.

The hosts were very much beneficiaries from playing two fixtures last weekend with two victories putting them inside the top four. A one goal victory over Dural Warriors was followed up by a more comfortable margin against Mountain Majik. With a bit of momentum behind them, they’ll be keen to keep it going next weekend.

Turning draws into victories, that’s the challenge for Inner West going forward after being held to three this season already. In terms of who too look out for, Chloe Gordon and Madison Mccomasky were singled out for impressive performances in their game against Enfield Allstars last weekend, the better of those two results.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club v Dural Warriors; Saturday 8 October, 5:50pm @ Morris Iemma Indoor SC

Second visits third on the table and even at this early stage it’s a big game when Eastern Suburbs Hakoah host Dural Warriors this weekend.

With a game in hand, Eastern Suburbs Hakoah sit in a good position on the table having won both their games so far. Backing up from a one goal high scoring victory in round two. They claimed a more comfortable victory in the round following. The main talking point being the four goals Marcella Santos scored. Joined by Antonia Sharp on the scoresheet (Apologies for the spelling error in the review).

Having played two games more than their opponents, this is a big game for Dural Warriors if they won’t to hang on to their spot on the table. Last weekend saw them come from it with a 50/50 record. Edged out by the Vipers in round three before Skye Hill and Estelle Fragale scored to give them victory in round four, though I’m obliged to mention Sarah Easthope’s performance by certain FNSW media personalities.

Mountain Majik Futsal Club v Enfield Allstars; Saturday 8 October, 5:50pm @ Valentine Sports Park

Mountain Majik and Enfield Allstars clash in a desperation derby as both sides look to open their season account.

On a three game losing streak, Mountain Majik will be eyeing this game as a chance to turn their season around. Conceding ten goals in their past two, it’s not hard to see where improvement can be found ahead of this weekend and facing a fellow side on a solitary point this season, they won’t have many better chances.

Things don’t look quite so bleak for Enfield Allstars who have only taken too the pitch on two occasions this season. After a three goal defeat in round two, the Allstars bounced back with an impressive point against Inner West. Olivia Mitchell and Amy Dahdah found the net in that one, so look out for them as they look to continue their scoring form in this one.
