1200x630 futsal PL preview and review 2023 rd 64

Approaching the halfway point of the Futsal Premier Leagues Open Women competition, we saw plenty of action in round six.

Featuring one of the surprises of the season as Enfield Allstars held Mascot Vipers to a draw. Mountain Majik, Dural Warriors and UTS Northside also secured round six victories.

Boomerangs FS 2-3 Mountain Majik Futsal Club

Mountain Majik scored three goals in the final ten minutes to secure their fourth win of the season over Boomerangs FS.

In testing conditions after a long road trip, the three points were well earned by the Mountain Majik. They trailed at the break before coming out in the second half to mount a comeback.

The Boomerangs took a lead in this one through Natalie De Marco in just the second minute of play.

Most of the goals came after the half time break though in a frantic final ten minutes of action. Ella Buchanan scoring the Majiks first in the 34th minute. A goal which drew a reply from the hosts shortly after with Jamie Berkeley restoring their lead soon after.

Pene Bonovas once again tying the game for the Majik before Clare Holder produced a moment of majik in the lead up to the third goal dribbling from her own half before delivering a ball into a dangerous area. Pene Bonovas on the spot to turn it home.

Boomerangs then employed an extra player pushing for the equaliser but couldn’t break through for an equaliser of their own. Olivia Schembri and Ella Buchanan getting a mention post-game as the Majik’s best performers.

Dural Warriors 2-1 Macarthur Quake Futsal

Dural Warriors edged a close one over Macarthur Quake at The Centre Dural, Saturday afternoon.

The Warriors second victory in as many weeks. They found a winner in the final ten minutes in a game between two well organised sides.

Both keepers taking the plaudits after this one keeping the scoreboard tight.

Dural started the first half in fine fashion with a goal on five minutes. Rachel Perrins crossing the ball into a dangerous position which was deflected in by a Quake defender.

Quake equalising with the only other chance of note right before the break. Libby Morris with the goal, Alvina-Marie Khoshaba with the assist.

The second half saw more chances than the half preceding it. Rachel Perrins hitting the crossbar before Brianna Clarke denied Skye Hill on more than one occasion as Dural searched for the equaliser. Sarah Easthope not to be outdone at the other end denying Khoshaba on more than one occasion.

Dural taking the game winning lead after the half hour through Samantha Nagy. Aisling Davidson and Nikkita Fazzari setting her up for the goal.

Easthope making a final save in the final minutes to keep their lead intact, denying Tea Muncenski.

Dural Warriors face Eastern Suburbs Hakoah at home next up while Macarthur Quake take on Mascot Vipers away from home.

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club 2-6 UTS Northside Futsal Club

Reigning champions UTS Northside jumped up into second place of the Open Women competition with a 6-2 victory over Eastern Suburbs Hakoah.

The visitors took a lead in the third minute through Daisy Arrowsmith and always maintained control over the fixture. With Halle Smit adding a second goal before the break, Grace Arnold with a brilliant pass in the lead up to that goal.

Like the first half, Daisy Arrowsmith was first to find the back of the net after the break. Madeleine Caspers adding to their lead from a well worked team goal before Halle Smit added their fifth. Emily Bastow scoring in the final minute to complete the victory.

Interspersed in those goals of the second half were two goals for the hosts who scored through Aurelia Collins and Zoe Anderson. However, they were denied more joy by Samantha Fulwood in goals for the visitors.

Enfield Allstars 3-3 Mascot Vipers

At least when it comes to the standings, Enfield Allstars caused a shock sharing the points with Mascot Vipers in our later kick off.

Indeed, this is not the Enfield Allstars side were used too with some key additions added to the squad. They more than matched it with the Vipers coming from behind late to claim a point from the contest.

Enfield took the lead early in this one through Estelle Fragale who featured in her first game of the season.

However as good teams do, Mascot Vipers struck back with venom scoring three unanswered goals. Sarah Moore scoring the equaliser in the 7th minute before Jess Frampton and Maryam Mostaghimi put them into a two-goal lead with goals either side of half time.

However, the Allstars were up to the challenge with two goals of their own to draw things level. Leah De Oliveira scoring their second before the 25th minute before Erin Jones completed the comeback.

Enfield Allstars face Boomerangs FS next weekend at the same venue while Mascot Vipers host Macarthur Quake.
