Men’s Futsal Premier League action returned on Wednesday night, as Round Eight kicked off after the Christmas break.
Boomerangs F.S 4 def Timberwolves FC 2
The first game of the evening saw Boomerangs FS take on Timberwolves FC, in their bid to get back on top of the ladder.
Boomerangs shot out the gates, scoring twice in the early stages of the game, both goals coming from Sean Byrne.
Michael Southam would pull one back for Timberwolves, converting a penalty, but it would count for little as James Wilson would restore the two-goal lead for Boomerangs right before the break.
It was a much more even second half as both sides battled for control, and both would score in the final minutes of the game.
Ben Basser-Silk would seal the result for his side, and while Timberwolves would score off an own-goal, it counted for little as Boomerangs would run out two goal winners.
North Canberra Untouchables 1 def. by Wildcats 4
Wildcats cemented their spot at the top of the FPL ladder with a dominant win over top four hopefuls, North Canberra Untouchables.
Two early goals from Michael Rinaudo set the tone and with a third from Nick Dahl later in the half, the result would be all but wrapped up at the break.
Untouchables came out firing in the second half, looking more composed and up for the challenge. They would pull one back with Aidan Brown finding the back of the net following a corner.
But it would only be a consolation, as Dahl would score his second of the night and put the result beyond doubt late on.
Canberra Olympic 1 def. by Soccer FC 2
Soccer FC have cemented their spot in the top four, following a gritty 2-1 win over Canberra Olympic.
After what was a stalemate for much of the first half, the side broke through just before the break with Adam Brooks finding the back of the net. Shortly after the break and they would add a second as Lucas Alcazar-Stevens got on the scoresheet.
Despite the early goal, it was another tight half as Olympic refused to go down without a fight. A late penalty scored by Angelo Konstantinou gave the side a glimmer of hope, but it would not be enough as Soccer FC held on for a vital win.
