NCU Navy 2 (Alice Churchill 10′, Erika Pennyfield 25′) def. CUA 17’s Green 1 (Hayley Taylor-Young 36′)
Erika Pennyfield’s second-half strike ensured that a late comeback from the Canberra United Academy was not enough in Round 4 of the Women’s Futsal Premier League. Both teams started the match at a fast pace and Alice Churchill made it count as she scored off a corner for Untouchables after ten minutes. After carrying a one-goal lead into the break it was Untouchables who extended the lead five minutes after half-time as Pennyfield slid one through the goalkeepers legs to make it 2-0. The Academy wouldn’t go away however and Hayley Taylor-Young pulled one back with four minutes to go, but the Untouchables defence held out to clinch the win.

Two goals in either half helped Gungahlin United Pink to a two-goal win over Untouchables Red in Round four.

Ash Palombi added a goal only three minutes into the second stanza, but Lucy Rowland gave Untouchables a glimmer when she scored only four minutes later. Najwa Allen iced the match with ten minutes to go, and Sarah Crittenden’s strike in the final minute served only as a consolation.

But a two minute brace just before the break from Sabrina Magro ensured that Gungahlin lead into half-time, 3-2. Barac grabbed her second moments after half-time, but a second goal from Giorgi with 15 minutes remaining turned out to be the winner as Gungahlin saw out the remainder of the match.

A hot start from Belconnen United lead lead them to a 6-0 win over Boomerangs in Round Four of the Women’s Futsal Premier League.

Boomerangs worked hard to try and get back into the match but it was the experience of the Blue Devils that told, and a second-half brace from Sian Minary-Bland ensured an emphatic scoreboard showing at the end of the match.
