FNSW PL2 15/16 Round 12 Review

Round 12 of the 15/16 NSW Premier League 2 season saw the club take on Mt Druitt Town Rangers at home at mPowerdome. With only a few more rounds of the season remaining, it was important for all teams to get positive results from the day.

At this stage of the season the club is looking for teams to be Premiers, or to at least finish top four, for the opportunity to play finals futsal and to win a Grand Final win (with a top two finish better giving teams a double chance in finals), and for the club as a whole to collect enough competition points to increase its lead in the FNSW PL2 Club Championship in order to earn promotion to PL1 for season 16/17.

The club has one more round to play on Saturday 30 January away against Raiders Futsal before a bye in the final Round 14. It is critical that a lead of more than 27 competition points is held at the end of Round 13 to not allow Raiders Futsal to overtake the Boomerangs on the final weekend of the 15/16 regular season. Raiders Futsal take on Botany Bay Pirates – in a round which could see them take all the competition points on offer.

Five wins and four losses resulted from the nine matches against Mt Druitt – slightly shy of the target of six wins, but still 15 valuable competition points, and taking into account the results of the Raiders v Eagles matches in Round 12, increasing the Club Championship lead by a further four points to 39 – a 12 point buffer going into Round 13.
