It was the penultimate round of Men’s Futsal Premier League action at ANU Sports Centre last night, as the top four side were confirmed in an entertaining evening.
Timberwolves FC 3 def by Wildcats 6
The ladder leading Wildcats kept their perfect record alive, coming from two goals down to beat Timberwolves FC.
Two early goals from William Liston and Nicholas Subasic got Timberwolves off to a great start, holding on to their lead for much of the first half. A late flurry say Wildcats temporarily level the scores, as Jayde James-Ward and Michael Rinaudo found the back of the net. But a late freekick saw Timberwolves regain their lead headed into the break.
Wildcats came out firing in the second half with quick goals from Ahmed Ugool and Leon Michl putting the side in front.
A second from James-Ward minutes after, and also from Michl later on, saw Wildcats run out three goal winners and keep their perfect record intact.
Boomerangs F.S. 5 def Soccer FC 0
A dominant performance from Boomerangs F.S. saw them move back into second place, running out five goal winners of Soccer FC.
Ben Basser-Silk scored from range early on to set the tone for the match, as Boomerangs never lost control from there on out. Two more goals from Basser-Silk right before the half-time break effectively put the result beyond reasonable doubt as Soccer FC had yet to come up with any significant attacks.
It was a similar story in the second half as Ryan Quarmby took the lead to four with an early goal. A late strike from Bailey Sorenson made it five to nil, as Boomerangs moved back into second place on the ladder, heading into the final round.
North Canberra Untouchables 7 def Supercats 3
The North Canberra Untouchables secured the last remaining spot in the finals as they came from two goals down against Supercats to win seven goals to three.
Supercats raced out of the blocks with Sam McLachlan and James Noja getting on the scoresheet early.
That lead would not last long however, as Untouchables quickly scored four of their own in reply, two to Aidan Brown and one each to Brett Forward and Michael Sydney, changing the tide of the game.
In the second half, Sydney would go on to score a hattrick while Forward would bag a brace, with Untouchables now up by five goals.
Xavier Graham would score late on but it would be little more than a consolation, the North Canberra Untouchables winning 7-3.
