Futsal Premier League Open Men’s Round 4 Review

1200x630 futsal PL preview and review 20233

Our top two sides scored round 4 victories as the Futsal Premier League Open Men’s competition heads towards the end of the first month of action.

Plenty to take a look at, lets get into the action below.

Mountain Majik Futsal Club 11 defeat Macarthur Quake Futsal 4

An understrength Mountain Majik side secured a comfortable 7-3 victory over Macarthur Quake in the early game, Saturday evening.

Missing both Jordan Guerreiro and Jamie Dib as well as coach Brett Hewit with the Futsalroos, the Majik took control early in this one and never let up.

While the Quake hung in there, they were always going to struggle after conceding five goals in the opening ten minutes. They themselves were without the services of Scott Rogan on Futsalroos duties.

I mentioned a fast start, didn’t I? Majik scored twice in the opening minute through Anthony Haddad who would go on to score four on the day. Haddad joined by Robson Aparecido de Souza with a brace, Nicholas Bakopoulos, Corby Fowler, Jett Mccue-Shore, Jaidyn Dunn and Christopher Barbera on the scoresheet. Lukas Luburic, Daniel Goni and Saharat Sae-Tang the goal scorers at the other end

Mountain Majik host Dural Warriors and visit Mascot Vipers next weekend, while Macarthur Quake make the trip to the nations capital to take on Boomerangs FS.

Dural Warriors 1 drew with Mascot Vipers 1

Dural Warriors and Mascot Vipers shared the spoils in a close contest as the Warriors hosted their first game of the season.

It finished in heartbreaking fashion for the hosts who conceded a last-minute goal to share the points. Summarised as a courageous performance with four senior players unavailable, they fought hard and defended well throughout. Hamza Sweedan opened the scoring for them.

In saying that, the Vipers were worthy of a point in an even game which could have gone either way. Jonathan Barzel and Nathan Niski were their best while a special mention was saved for Maor Rubinstein. They scored through Yanni Plataniotis in the dying stages.

Mascot Vipers host Eastern Suburbs Hakoah next weekend while Dural Warriors travel to Mountain Majik.

UTS Northside Futsal Club 2 defeat Boomerangs FS 1

UTS Northside somehow found a way to claim three points in a close contest with Boomerangs FS to conclude our round 4 review.

It will go down as a remarkable victory for UTS having conceded multiple ten metre kicks and being reduced in numbers at several points in the fixture. Jett Griffiths singled out by both camps as an important contributor in the Northside goal saving the 10m kicks as well as several other saves during the match.

They went into the break level with William Faulder opening the scoring for them before Lucas Rainbird scored the winner with two minutes remaining.

Contrastly, the result was probably a bit harsh on Boomerangs FS in their first away game of the season. A case of on another day more than anything, Callum Smith found the back of the net to equalise. However, they couldn’t find another denied by some great saves and the goal frame on more than one occasion.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club v Enfield Allstars rescheduled to a later date.
