Round 6 of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs club on the road for the fifth time in the first six rounds of season 18/19. The opposition was Phoenix Futsal, a club playing out of the Hornsby PCYC. Rounds against Phoenix in previous seasons have always been closely contested, and this round would likely be no different.
Development Squad Matches
The 11 boys and 11/12 girls started the day’s action at Hornsby on small courts against Phoenix opposition. The two teams performed extremely well against a robust opposition and came out on the positive side of the goal-scoring ledger (even though these games are never officially scored).
These two teams are coming along nicely as the young Boomerangs learn what is needed to compete at this NSW Premier League level.
12 Boys: Boomerangs 6 – 2 Phoenix Futsal (ht 3 – 1)
The 12 boys finally had an opportunity to register a win, against a Phoenix team that was also struggling at the wrong end of the competition ladder. The boys were very solid in defence, and creative in attack and seized on goal scoring opportunities as they arose. Next week will also present an opportunity for a win (against the Crusaders) and this should lead to an improved second half of the season.
Goals to Mikey Pratezina (2), Daniel Barbatano, Arron Cocks, Hayden Gardiner, AJ Malauulu
Ladder Position: 7th ( +1 )
