Futsal Premier League Open Men’s Round 6 Review

1200x630 futsal PL preview and review 2023 rd 63

Weekend of the comeback! Round six of the Futsal Premier League Open Men competition saw three sides come from a losing position to win.

Let’s get into the nitty gritty on how things played out Saturday evening.

Boomerangs FS 3-4 Mountain Majik Futsal Club

Mountain Majik took three points back on the road with them scoring a 4-3 victory over Boomerangs FS down in Canberra.

A hard-fought game where one side probably created the better chances while the other team controlled more of the game. The visitors managed to come back from two goals down to emerge winners.

They certainly made it hard for themselves however with Nicholas Rathjen and Maxx Green scoring early doors. However perhaps the lack of a clinical touch stopped them from winning when it was said and done. Sebastian Arranz, Benjamin Basser Silk and Elle Darwich all performing well for the Boomerangs.

The Majik stepping it up a level in the second half after two goals from Jaidyn Dunn and Anthony Haddad scored a goal each in the first half.

However, Maxx Green was able to restore a 3-2 lead at the break. Majik scoring an equaliser on 28 minutes through Alexander Vlismas before Jamie Dibb scored the winner with three minutes remaining.

Boomerangs face Enfield Allstars next weekend, while Mountain Majik host UTS Northside.

Dural Warriors 6-5 Macarthur Quake Futsal

A last-minute goal gave the Dural Warriors their first win of the season against Macarthur Quake.

Led by the efforts of Wade Giovenali, they secured the victory in dramatic fashion. Giovenali joined by five different goal scorers in the hosts victory.

Despite their second loss of the week, Macarthur Quake have started to find the back of the net on a frequent basis scoring ten goals in two fixtures.

Indeed, they scored the first in this one. Alexander Nicolosi opening the goal scoring with a long-range effort five minutes in.

Dural hitting back with a goal of their own a couple minutes later, Blake Rosier tapping home a Joshua Montgomery assist.

A third goal in the fixture coming before ten minutes. Jack Wetney finishing from close range after Ahmed Sweedan took the ball down the right.

However, the Quake would take a 4-2 lead into the break. Nicolosi scoring two more from as many set pieces for a hat trick joined by Aaron Green who bundled his effort over the line.

Warriors would respond with a dominant second half however, Jacob Basden scoring their third on 22 minutes before Wade Giovenali scored am individual effort beating two defenders in his own half to equalise.

Ahmed Sweedan adding a fifth for them to complete the turnaround before Daniel Goni equalised to set up the final ten minutes.

The game up for grabs at this point, the hosts claiming it with a goal with three minutes left. Wade Giovenali assisting with an outside of the foot pass which Joshua Montgomery turned home for a Warriors win.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club 5-4 UTS Northside Futsal Club

Reversal of the norm! Eastern Suburbs Hakoah came from behind to take the rewards over UTS Northside at the Heffron Centre.

Scoring twice with three minutes left was enough to take what looked like aa loss and turn it into their third? Victory of the season.

For UTS Northside, it’s a disappointing defeat as they look to recapture their form as we head towards the midway point of the season.

Described as a game of two halves, UTS Northside were able to jump out to a 4-1 lead early in the second half. Nick Rainbird grabbing a brace joined by Lucas Rainbird and Nathan Amore on the scoresheet. Eddie Caspers and Samuel Hillyer their best on the pitch.

However, Hakoah simply found a way to come back into it scoring four straight goals in the second half. Samuel Tzanakes and James Reed each scoring twice in the comeback joined by Lucas Brandow Vidal who scored their third.

Enfield Allstars 1-3 Mascot Vipers

An Ethan De Melo hattrick gave Mascot Vipers the points from their fixture with Enfield Allstars.

In a clash between two of the fancied teams in the competition, the visitors started well scoring twice in the opening ten minutes before holding the hosts at bay.

This was the first game in which the Enfield Allstars had close to a full complement. With a couple of games to make up and a victory last weekend, they will look to pick up some momentum going forward.

As mentioned above it was De Melo who decided this one with a performance fitting of someone with more experience. Although they did come under pressure in the final stages when Shervin Adeli found a consolation.

Enfield Allstars will look to bounce back next weekend against Boomerangs FS while Macarthur Quake await Mascot Vipers.

Round 3 result: Macarthur Quake Futsal 5 (Alexander Nicolosi 11’ 31’ 36’, Richard Shoueiki 24’, Daniel Goni 40’) v Enfield Allstars 8 (Dominic Cox 1’, Marko Filipovic 8’ 34’, Luiz Lobo 12’ 18’, Shervin Adeli 29’, Michael Kouta 32’ 34’).
