Futsal Premier League Open Women’s Round 3 Preview


After most teams got a game in their legs last weekend, round three of the futsal premier League Open Women’s season brings us more action this weekend.

Our featured match takes us to Sydney’s Northern beaches while Boomerangs will hopefully kick off their season elsewhere.

Mascot Vipers v Mountain Majik Futsal Club; Saturday 30 September, 3:50pm, Heffron Centre

Kicking things off for round three, Mountain Majik will face a big test when they visit Mascot Vipers at the Heffron Centre.

Our reigning premiers Mascot Vipers got off to a flyer last weekend in their grand final rematch away from home. A comprehensive 3-0 victory over UTS Northside with an understrength side was a result which reverberated across the competition.

Trudy Camilleri starred in the fixture with a brace while she was joined by Maryam Mostaghimi on the scoresheet. Also worth a mention was the keeping efforts of Ivana Rozman who will be tough to get past here and throughout the season.

Not to be underestimated are Mountain Majik who got their season off to a good start last weekend. In a high scoring fixture, they prevailed over Enfield Allstars away from home scoring six goals in the process.

Led by Claire Holder, Kaiya Buchanan and Chelsea Barton, signs were promising that their will be more to their attack in 2023. It will be a tough test for the Majik this weekend, but one they are looking forward too.

Macarthur Quake v Enfield Allstars; Saturday 30 September, 3:50pm, Minto Indoor Sports Centre

Macarthur Quake host their first home game in 2023 against Enfield Allstars at the Minto Indoor Sports Centre.

With a win under their belt already, Macarthur Quake will come in to this one hot favourites after their success last week. In that victory over Eastern Suburbs Hakoah, they came from behind in perhaps fortunate circumstances.

As expected, Darcey Malone led the way for the Quake and there were signs of a combination forming with Alvina – Marie Khoshaba both scoring and assisting each other’s goals in their first outing.

So, in that regard, Enfield Allstars will have nothing to lose ahead of this one. They went down in their first game last weekend to Mountain Majik and will come in underdogs for this one.

They chased the game valiantly throughout with Jennifer Kokoris and Jessica Lampasona finding the back of the net against the Majik. Look out for them to play a part in this one.

Boomerangs FS v Eastern Suburbs Hakoah; Saturday 30 September, 3:50pm, AIS Training Halls

Third time lucky? Boomerangs will hopefully get their season started against Eastern Suburbs Hakoah this weekend.

After having their opening two games postponed for various reasons, there will be a lot of intrigue on how the Boomerangs fair in this game.

Going through the Futsal Premier League 2 season undefeated last season there definitely is talent in Kristian Collins squad who will be led by the goalscoring efforts of Olivia Gurney and Madeleine Perceval.

Their opponents Eastern Suburbs Hakoah were involved in our match of the round last weekend. Going down 4-2 to Macarthur Quake in round two action, there were signs that they will be around semi-finals contention this season.

Tamires Souza stole the show with two goals, but their success in 2023 will be on the back of a team effort with their pressing game impressing in that one.

UTS Northside Futsal Club v Dural Warriors; Saturday 30 September, 4:15pm, PCYC Dee Why

Finally in another hotly anticipated contest, UTS Northside host Dural Warriors as two 2022 semi-finalists meet in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Not the start our reigning champions wanted, UTS Northside will be desperate to return to the pitch this weekend. Going down 3-0 in the first 2022 grand final rematch was a tough pill to swallow in round two action.

Still, we know the quality this UTS Northside has and with another 40 minutes under their belt, expect them to hit back in this one.

Finally getting their season underway will be Dural Warriors. Another rescheduled match last weekend meant they didn’t travel to Canberra which could be a blessing in disguise for the Warriors.

With several players backing up off a successful outdoor season, expect them to be there or thereabouts this season starting here.
