FNSW PL2 17/18 Finals Series Week 1

Week 1 of the FNSW PL2 17/18 finals series saw five of the nine competitive Boomerangs teams play in either qualifying (1v2) or elimination (3v4) semi-finals.

It was a disappointing day of results, with four losses and just the one win, but only resulting in one team being eliminated from the finals race. The male teams fared better with both the youth men and the open men progressing. The female teams did not do so well with losses in all three qualifying finals; the 15 and 18 girls and the Open Women. Fortunately, those teams have a double chance and will need to win next weekend to get to play in the Grand Final.

Round 14 – the final regular season round of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season – was played at home against the Mt Druitt Town Rangers. Mt Druitt has had a relatively poor season, and in the corresponding round in the first half of the season, the Boomerangs club disappointingly came home with only five wins, a loss and three frustrating draws. The aim for this round was to better those results and to lock as many teams as possible into finals (noting that a couple were also relying on other results). Teams not in finals contention were also looking to finish off the season with a solid performance.

Development Squad Matches
The travelling Town Rangers were without development squad teams, so the Boomerangs 10 boys played the 11/12 girls – which is always a cracker of a match, closely fought and intense. The 11 boys played a match against a Gungahlin team. We thank Gungahlin FC for the support they have given the Boomerangs this season by making their young teams available to play our development squads when visiting teams did not bring their squads with them (or they had no under-age development programs).

12 Boys: Boomerangs 1 – 6 Mt Druitt Town Rangers (ht 0 – 4)

Round 13 of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season – the second last of the season – was played away in Alexandria, Sydney against the Club Championship leading Eastern Suburbs Hakoah.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played against Hakoah which mixed up the players somewhat. The 10 boys joined the 11/12 girls to play against the Hakoah 11/12 girls and the 11 boys played against their Hakoah equivalents.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 0 – 9 Hakoah (ht 0 – 4)
The 12 boys were Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R13 Wrap”

Round 12 of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season was at home, played in the air-conditioned comfort of the AIS sports halls against a club sitting second in the Club Championship for the season, Raiders Futsal.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played as a precursor to the competitive matches against Raiders. The first was an intra-cub match between the 10 development boys and the 11/12 development girls followed by the 11 boys playing in a terrifically competitive match against local side Gungahlin.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 1 – 0 Raiders (ht 0 – 0)

Round eleven of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season was away at the Hornsby PCYC taking on the Phoenix Futsal Club.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played against Phoenix prior to the competitive matches – the 11/12 girls and the 10/11 boys. Both games were highly entertaining and of good quality – and it is apparent that these young Boomers are developing well as the season progresses. The girls dominated their match – especially in the second half, with the Phoenix boys putting up a strong effort against the travelling Boomerangs youngsters.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 2 – 1 Phoenix (ht 1 – 1)
The 12 boys were up against a Phoenix team that has struggled this season,  but still had some quality players hitting the court.  The boys were first to score and managed to hold that lead till around halfway through the first period. One all at the break and the match was there for the taking by both teams.  The second half was Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R11 Wrap”

Round ten of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season was an away round to the Central Coast to take on the Central Coast Futsal Club at the Peninsula Leisure Centre in Woy Woy.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were no development squad matches played against Central Coast opposition this round.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 5 – 11 Central Coast (ht 2-5)
The 12 boys were involved in a goal-fest featuring 16 goals to open the day’s proceedings in Woy Woy. They matched it early with the home team, but let down their guard a little to concede easy goals to be down at the break 2-5. After scoring early in the second half the boys then conceded a couple close together giving the momentum back to the home team – which they capitalised by going on a scoring rampage in the final ten minutes. The Boomers boys will be Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R10 Wrap”

Round nine of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season had the club at home to Sydney Futsal Club. Earlier this season, away in Sydney, the club took home six wins from the nine matches, going down in the 12 and 16 boys and the open women. The aim for this round was to improve on that result.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
The 10 boys played a scratch match against local side Gungahlin. It was a highly competitive and skilful game that saw both sides put together some terrific periods of play. The 11 boys took on a visiting Sydney Futsal club side in what was again a close, well matched and highly entertaining game. There was no match for the 11/12 girls.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 0 – 0 Sydney Futsal Club
Earlier this season the Boomers 12 boys were humbled by this strong Sydney futsal club team and were determined not to let them score so freely this round. The boys started strongly and were defending well as a unit in front of stand-in keeper Liam Cook.  The match was evenly poised when Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R9 Wrap”

To kick off the second half of the 17/18 season, the Boomerangs club travelled to south-west Sydney to take on Sydney City Eagles at the new Michael Clarke Recreation Centre.  Rounds against Sydney City are always tough – and they traditionally have strong male teams and competent female teams. Earlier this season in Round 1, the Boomerangs enjoyed a good day at the AIS winning five of the nine competitive matches and drawing another. To get similar results in the Eagles home territory was the challenge set.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
The 10/11 boys and the 11/12 girls both had games against Sydney City Eagles juniors and the matches were highly competitive and entertaining.  Several of these juniors were also given the opportunity to play in the 12 boys and 13 girls competitive matches that followed. The juniors are developing well and many of them will cope well in the competitive age groups next season.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 1 – 8 Sydney City Eagles (ht 1-3)
Earlier this season the Boomers 12 boys were Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R8 Wrap”
