The hosts did add a third goal before half-time. Once again it was Godoy-Bascur who got on the scoresheet with a header from close range to make it 3-0.

Coming out of the break, Sydney Futsal Club were looking to respond quickly. Omid Mohktar found some space and fizzed an effort wide of the mark.

Soon after, Raiders Futsal Club made it 4-0. Some lovely tic-tac-toe work from the hosts opened up the space and Voloder slotted home for his second goal of the game.

Buoyed by their lead, Raiders Futsal Club went on a tear scoring three goals in ten minutes. Luis Ferreira was the first to find the back of the net then Medimurac added the sixth before Godoy-Bascur hit them for the seventh to complete the hat-trick.

To cap off the performance, Raiders Futsal Club captain Slaven Ljuboja got himself on the scoresheet when he tapped home for 8-0.

Post match Raiders Futsal Club and goal scorer Slaven Ljuboja was delighted with the performance from his side as they got back in the winner’s circle:

“It was an excellent performance from the lads and they executed the game plan perfectly. We tried to get a clean sheet but conceded late. 8-1 is still a good result for us though.” said Ljuboja.

For Sydney Futsal Club coach was curt and direct in his assessment of the sides performance after the full-time buzzer on Saturday:

“I was thoroughly disappointed. We have been there and thereabouts this season then to come here and put up that performance is disappointing for us.” he said.
