Men's FPL: Boomerangs White Spring Surprise Comeback Win

Men’s Futsal Premier League
Round 4/5

Boomerangs FS White sprung a major surprise as they came from 0-3 down to stun reigning champions Canberra Olympic Superprawns in the Men’s Futsal Premier League. It appeared to be business as usual for the Superprawns who led 3-0 after 14 minutes with Pat Ross-Magee scoring in the opening minute and Trent Flanigan netting twice to give the Superprawns a big lead.

The Boomerangs had another idea though and, crucially, pulled a goal back on the cusp of half-time as Jake Wilsener scored. Jason O’Dwyer reduced the lead still further before Robert McKay equalised. Jay Kelly struck an unlikely winner with two minutes to play to spring the league wide open. 

Kelly had scored the week before as Boomerangs FS White fell to a 2-4 loss to NC Untouchables Red. Brett Forward and Kelly helped Boomerangs fight back from 0-2 down, cancelling out goals from Nathaniel De Hoog and Ryan Tredinnick, to draw level by half-time but late goals from Sengmany Sanoubane and Matthew Corey gave Untouchables the win. 

Boomerangs FS Blue have gone top of the table having won two games in succession by the narrowest of margins. A goal from Brandon hawker was enough to give them a 1-0 win over NC Untouchables Navy before doubles from Daniel Giovinazzo and Michael Rinaudo sedged out Belconnen United 4-3. Taylor Beaton (2) and Cameron Reinhart scored three late goals for the Blue Devils who, at one stage, were 4-0 adrift.

Earlier the Blue Devils had easily accounted for the NC Untouchables Red winning 5-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Jack Green and a double from Beaton. Beaton leads the top scorers’ hart with eight whilst Green had six. 

Finally, there was a first win of the season for Woden-Weston Timberwolves who saw off Boomerangs FS Youth by the odd goal in seven. Thiago Cabral De Carvalho scored twice for the Timberwolves with Bobby Jovanoski and Michael Kita scoring late on as a 1-3 deficit was turned into a remarkable 4-3 victory.
