Futsal Premier League Open Men’s Round 4 Preview

1200x630 futsal PL preview and review 2023

Another weekend of the Futsal Premier League Open Men’s competition as three sides chase their first win in round 4 of the competition. Check out the preview below.

Mountain Majik Futsal Club v Macarthur Quake Futsal; Saturday 7 October, 5:00pm, Valentine Sports Park

Mountain Majik host an improving Macarthur Quake side at Valentine Sports Park in round 4 action.

Another game with a question mark on it, Mountain Majik could possibly return to the pitch in this one. They have two wins to their name this season already prevailing over Eastern Suburbs Hakoah and Enfield Allstars respectively.

Jordan Guerreiro and coach Brett Hewit are both involved with the Futsalroos, so it will be interesting to see how they go in this one.

Macarthur Quake scored a well-earned victory the last time they took the pitch against Eastern Suburbs Hakoah in round two action.

With their game falling victim to a reschedule last weekend, there will no doubt be a willingness to return to the pitch. They could be without Scott Rogan however given his Futsalroos duties.

Dural Warriors v Mascot Vipers; Saturday 7 October, 5:20pm, The Centre Dural

After taking to the pitch for the first time in 2023 last weekend, Dural Warriors host their second game of the season against Mascot Vipers this weekend looking for their first win.

Coming from behind twice was a positive sign for Dural Warriors last weekend who counting last season are now unbeaten in their last three away trips.

Yes, against UTS Northside they found the back of the net through Jacob Basden and Andrew Luttringer twice in the first half. They will be without Ahmed Sweedan who picked up a red card last weekend.

Mascot Vipers will be keen to return to the pitch after their round three game was rescheduled last weekend. Before that, they picked up a victory over UTS Northside in their sole fixture in round 2.

They will be missing Ethan De Melo and Daniel Fornito assuming this one goes ahead, Saturday evening.

UTS Northside Futsal Club v Boomerangs FS; Saturday 7 October, 6:05pm, PCYC Dee Why

UTS Northside host Boomerangs FS as the visitors visit Sydney for the first time in 2023 at PCYC Northern Beaches.

It’s been a mixed start to the season for UTS Northside in 2023. One win, one draw and one defeat in their opening three games has them chasing an important result here as they complete their home stand.

Last weekend, they drew with Dural Warriors on their home pitch. Nathan Amore and Edward Caspers found the back of the net and they were perhaps unlucky not to get more controlling the second half of action.

Boomerangs FS will be worthy competitors in this one. They went close last weekend at home against Eastern Suburbs Hakoah in a high scoring thriller.

Going down 4-0 at one point. They outscored their opponents 6-4 in the second half to nearly pull off a remarkable comeback. Maxx Green was an important player in the comeback while Perry Field di well in goal in his senior debut.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club v Enfield Allstars; Match Postponed

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah will return home to face Enfield Allstars at the Heffron Centre, Saturday evening.

There were positives and a few negatives for Eastern Suburbs Hakoah after their last fixture with Boomerangs. They relied on a dominant first half to get past their out of touch opponents.

However, a late Emmanuel Tzanakes goal could well boost them onto greater things from here on out. Vinicius Costa Janjacomo was important in the win as a pivot while Mitchell Lowe also impressed when he was on the court.

Another team who will be looking forward to returning to the pitch will be Enfield Allstars. Only playing one game so far this season against Mountain Majik, there’s still a lot unknown about the Allstars.

They will have three players overseas playing for the Futsalroos this weekend, so don’t be surprised if this is rescheduled.
