Mascot Vipers 4-1 Macarthur Quake Futsal

Mascot Vipers continued their undefeated start to the season with a 4-1 victory over Macarthur Quake at the Heffron Centre.

Four victories and two draws in their opening six games, the Vipers are looking good in season 2023. This weekend proving a bit too good for Macarthur Quake at the Heffron Centre. They took the lead inside two minutes before three unanswered second half goals gave them the victory finding the net through Peter Politis, Ethan De Melo, Jacob Debien and Thomas Quilligan.

It’s another result on a steep learning curve for Macarthur Quake. Winless in five, they kept things competitive in the first half before the score blew out after the break. Kingston Luburic with the goal in the first half.

Mascot Vipers travel to face Boomerangs FS next weekend, while Macarthur Quake host UTS Northside.

Mountain Majik Futsal Club 4-2 UTS Northside Futsal Club

Mountain Majik made sure they’ll finish the first half of the season on top with a 4-2 victory over UTS Northside.

Finishing the first half of the season with just one defeat in their opening seven games, they have accumulated 16 points so far this season. Controlling the majority of the game, Anthony Haddad was the player who proved the difference in this one scoring a hat-trick to extend his season tally to ten goals in seven. Haddad joined by Alexander Vlismas on the scoresheet late on.

It’s a third straight defeat for UTS Northside who find themselves caught up in a congested mid-table. Both Nick Rainbird and Nathan Amore scored equalisers in the opening half hour taking their chances efficiently.

They face Macarthur Quake next weekend, while Mountain Majik travel east to take on Eastern Suburbs Hakoah away from home.

Dural Warriors 5-5 Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club

Eastern Suburbs Hakoah came from behind once again to draw 5-5 against Dural Warriors away from home.

They outscored their hosts in the final ten minutes to claim a point. Adam Paulsen scoring a brace, joined by Emmanuel Tzakanes with the crucial equaliser as well as Lucas Brandow Vidal and James Reed earlier on in the fixture.

Their hosts won’t be too disappointed with the point considering they were understrength. Coach Rob Varela noting that he was extremely proud of his players and their performance. Ahmed Sweedan scoring their final three goals for a second half hattrick after Nima Jafari gave them a lead into the break in the first half.

Dural featuring once again in Sunday action while Eastern Suburbs Hakoah host Mountain Majik in round eight next weekend.

Enfield Allstars 6-4 Boomerangs FS

The return of the king! Shervin Adeli scored four goals to lead Enfield Allstars to a 6-4 victory over Boomerangs FS, Saturday night.

A competitive fixture throughout, this one was decided by individual quality with the Allstars coming out victorious. They now have won three of their last four games and look set to continue their charge up the table.

This game was characterised by several quick scoring runs throughout. Shervin Adeli and Marko Filipovic both scoring a first half brace to give the Allstars a 4-1 half time lead. Nicholas Dahl with the sole Boomerangs goal.

To their credit, Boomerangs then responded with three goals in as many minutes early in the second half. Nicholas Dahl completing his brace before Nicholas Rathjen and Elie Darwich saw parity restored.

However, this is where the class of Shervin Adeli shone through scoring twice in the final ten minutes for the victory.

Dural Warriors 0-9 Enfield Allstars

Finally, to round out the weekend of action, Enfield Allstars trounced Dural Warriors scoring nine goals away from home.

A statement to the rest of the league, the two victories across the weekend put Enfield Allstars into third place with four victories in their first six games.

And if you scored for the Allstars in this one, you scored more than one goal with Bruno Pivato, Luiz Lobo and Shervin Adeli all scoring a brace each. While Michael Kouta went and ruined it with a hat-trick to his name.

Dural Warriors for their part created a few chances of their own however couldn’t get past Domenic Badolato in goal despite their best efforts.

These two will meet again next weekend in round eight action at Morris Iemma Sports Centre.
