FNSW Futsal Cup Round of 16

The first match of the 2019 FNSW, Indoor 5s Futsal Cup for the Boomerangs was a match up for both the men’s and women’s teams against Phoenix Futsal (PL2).

The Boomerangs men’s and women’s teams have generally had close matches against Phoenix in regular competition over the years, however, in the 2018-19 PL2 season the Phoenix men defeated the Boomerangs both at home and away. For the women, it was a different story as the Boomers dominated both matchups in the 18-19 season scoring 17 goals across the two matches.

FNSW Futsal Cup Quarter Final

After defeating Raiders Futsal in the Round of 16, the 2018 FNSW Futsal Cup draw had the Boomerangs senior men’s side scheduled to take on Dural Warriors in the Quarter Finals on 14 November 2018.

Dural Warriors had defeated Eastern Suburbs Hakoah in the opening round to progress to the final eight and had been in some solid form so far this season, dropping only five competition points (one loss, one draw) in the FNSW PL1 competition across the first half of the season to sit on top of the league ladder.

Dural has traditionally been a strong PL1 men’s team and is usually littered with Australian representative players. They are also coached by the most recent Australian Futsalroos coach.

Over the years – both in PL1 and in the F-League – it would be fair to say that Dural has had the best of matchups against Boomerangs men’s team, however, on nearly all occasions the matches are close, tight and entertaining tussles, where high-quality futsal is played.

This match was no different, with the travelling Boomerangs (with players having driven three hours to Valentine Park after a day’s work or schooling) starting the match strongly and having the best of the first five or so minutes of the match. However, as Dural settled into their rhythm, they ‘owned’ the ball far more than the Boomerangs and were camped for much of the remainder of the first half in their offensive end.

The Boomerangs men defended extremely well, with their team hussle-defence working well with each player supporting others. A 0-0 half-time score representing the fine work they did in protecting their goals.

FNSW Futsal Cup Round of 16

The 2018 FNSW Futsal Cup draw had both Boomerangs senior men’s and women’s teams scheduled to take on Raiders Futsal in the Round of 16 on 23 October 2018.

Raiders v Boomerangs FS Women
The women’s match kicked off proceedings at 7 pm with a close to full-strength women’s team heading up the Hume Highway late Tuesday afternoon. After their weekend league result (9-1 victory) over Sydney City Eagles fresh on their mind, the ladies were chock-full of confidence. The earlier clash between Boomerangs and Raiders in Round 1 of the PL2 competition saw the Boomerangs prevail 3-1.

The Raiders though thought nothing of the form guide and hit the court full of vigour and determination. The match was evenly-poised a minute from half-time at one goal apiece, however, two quick goals before the break swung the momentum back in Raiders favour.

The second half saw a Continue reading “FNSW Futsal Cup Round of 16”
