Women's FPL - Boomerangs FS Youth Gain First Win

Women’s Futsal Premier League
Round 2

NC Untouchables Red started their ACT Women’s Futsal Premier League campaign with a narrow 1-3 defeat to Boomerangs FS Youth who recorded their first win of the season in the process. The Boomerangs youngsters were 2-0 to the good in the first fifteen minutes as strikes from Jacqueline Alferink and Madeleine Perceval gave them a cushion. 

Sheridan McElligott pulled one back for NC Untouchables Red minutes after Perceval’s goal but a third, converted by Isobel D’Amico, in the second stanza secured the points. NC Untouchables Red finished strongly and threatened a comeback, but could not find a way through the Boomerangs FS Youth defence. 

Leaders Gungahlin United moved three points clear at the top after only two rounds with another convincing win, disposing of NC Untouchables Navy 4-1. They were given a helping hand by their unwitting opponents however, as two of the four goals scored were own goals.

Najwa Allen and Grace Field netted two goals for Gungahlin midway through the first half but a strike from Erika Pennyfield, her second of the season, gave NC Untouchables Navy a route back into the match. Unfortunately for them that was taken away as Gunners pressed hard and were rewarded when Rhianna Goldstein and Pennyfield put through their own net to seal the result.

Gungahlin United 4 (Najwa Allen, Grace Field, Rhianna Goldstein (og), Erika Pennyfield (og)) NC Untouchables Navy 1 (Erika Pennyfield)

NC Untouchables Red 1 (Sheridan McElligott) Boomerangs FS Youth 3 (Madeleine Perceval, Jacqueline Alferink, Isobel D’Amico)
