Round 11 Review – Futsal Premier League Open Women’s


With three weeks of the Futsal Premier League Open Women’s competition before finals, we saw some important results as the competition motors along.

In round 11 action we saw UTS Northside return for home, Campbelltown City Quake claim a top four scalp and more. So join us as we review the weekends action below.

Campbelltown City Quake Futsal Club 4 v 2 Dural Warriors

Campbelltown City Quake claimed a top four scalp with a round 11 victory over Dural Warriors at Valentine Sports Park.

It was another backs against the wall effort from the Quake or as their coach Mel Keith put it “Adversity suits us”. They scored twice early which set the tone from there.

In contrast, it has to go down as one of Dural Warriors more disappointing results of the season. They scored twice late but the result was pretty much sorted by then.

After absorbing some early pressure, Quake opened the scoring six minutes in through Peta Trimis. Trimis showing her dribbling skill beating several Warriors before slotting in past Sarah Easthope bottom right.

A lead which was doubled seven minutes after that, Libby Morris pinching the ball off her opposition before blasting it past the keeper to make it two.

Quake then added a third fifteen minutes into the second after once again surviving some opposition attacks led by Samantha Nagy and Sheiden Jabour. Tegan Bertolissio scoring from an angle though it did go down as an own goal officially.

Samantha Nagy would get some reward for her efforts at the other end though scoring the Warriors first with three minutes left past an advancing Brianna Clarke.

Although hopes of a late comeback were dashed when 14-year-old Tea Mucenski converted a penalty seconds later.

Sheidan Jabour adding a spectacular consolation for the Warriors after that scoring from just inside the attacking half.

Quake move on to a season defining weekend next up, while Dural face Eastern Suburbs Hakoah.

UTS Northside Futsal Club 11-1 Inner West Futsal Club

UTS Northside returned to form in style putting just under a dozen goals past Inner West on their club day.

After some soul searching in the build up to this one, it was the perfect response from UTS Northside who took advantage of a good turnout for both games.

The score line perhaps did Inner West a disservice on reflection. They kept UTS Northside keeper Samantha Fulwood busy in the first half who produced a few good saves.

Highlighting the performance for UTS Northside were Daisy Arrowsmith and Emily Bastow who both scored hat-tricks with goals either side of half time. Anneke Corry added her contribution with a brace while Valentina Bradley, Tess Olsen and Grace Arnold all added goals to their season tallies. Inner West’s goal coming with ten minutes left courtesy of Alyssa Walsh.

UTS Northside travel to Sydney’s South-West for a crucial game against Campbelltown City Quake next weekend, while Inner West have an equally tough task against competition leaders Mascot Vipers.

Mascot Vipers 5 v 2 Mountain Majik Futsal Club

We told you to watch out for her! Mascot Vipers kept their top place in the competition with a victory over an improving Mountain Majik.

Just who am I referring too exactly? Mikayla Nuong who picked up her first hat-trick in open women’s competition. It was an all-round team effort though as the Vipers showed maturity playing the full game with just the one substitute.

And they needed it as Mountain Majik kept them honest as they continue to show improvement as the season progresses. Savannah Murray particularly earning praise from their opposition.

It didn’t take long for Mikayla Nuong to open her account either, scoring from a 2-on-1 opportunity three minutes into the fixture.

A lead which was doubled inside a quarter hour later. Tess Quilligan adding the second and her sixth of the season.

Majik were creating chances throughout the first half though and they grabbed a deserved goal just before the break, a long throw finding Savannah Murray who applied a controlled finish to half the deficit.

They just couldn’t keep pace with their opposition though as Vipers added a couple of goals in the opening ten minutes of the second half. Nuong with the third, Sarah Moore with the fourth. While Alice Thompson scored the visitors second on fourty minutes.

The main story of the game was Mikayla Nuong though and she completed her hat-trick with four minutes left, an impressive effort backing up from earlier youth fixtures.

Enfield Allstars 3-6 Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah secured their first win in three in defeating Enfield Allstars at Morris Iemma Indoor SC.

And it was Aurelia Collins who took the plaudits with four goals in the clash ensuring they matched Mascot Vipers result elsewhere.

Enfield Allstars on the other hand were good value for their three goals scoring three times before the half time to bring it back to one goal before the favourites scored twice with ten minutes left for their victory.

So who else scored the goals I hear you ask! Well let’s go through them one by one. Aurelia Collins was the scorer of Hakoah’s first two inside the opening ten minutes taking her season tally to five before Antonia Sharp joined her on the scoresheet ten minutes after that.

We then saw Collins complete her hat-trick before the break while Siena Hawkins struck at the other end to see the half time score to 4-1 in favour of Hakoah.

But the Allstars had some momentum and they added two before Hakoah would next score with Hawkins adding another joined by Daniela Mandile who scored their third.

However Hakoah are a classy outfit and they made sure of the victory in the final ten minutes, Collins with her fourth of the game and Gisella Pipino with her first.
