The winter state league round 4 took place at the States Sports Centre on Monday night this was action packed night and had a number of goals being scored and some quality Futsal was produced.
In the opening match of the night the 2nd placed Liverpool Fusion take on the 6th place Inner west Allstars in the Open Women’s competition. Fusion started this game like a house on fire producing a number of early chances. Allstars edged their way back into the contest with a nice effort from A Smith that only just went wide. Fusion had a golden chance to take the lead but some desperate defending by D Caridad kept the scores locked at nil all. Fusion took the lead with a well worked goal after some great build by Clare Tyson which was then put away by Kathryn Mladineo to give the Fusion girls the lead. Fusion went into the break leading one-nil.
The second half we witnessed a very determined Allstars side as they we desperate to get something out of this game they had a number of opportunities to get back into the contest and they equalized with a good strike by E Goss hitting the ball sweetly with the outside of her left foot. With the scores locked at one-all the game was there for the taking and Fusion grabbed it with both hands as Renee Tomkins scored to seal the victory for the Fusion girls leaving them in 2nd place on goal difference.
The men’s match of the night seen the 8th placed Sydney City Eagles take on the 5th placed Commodores this was always going to be a cracking game of Futsal. Both sides started the game at a very high tempo and both created a number of chances throughout the first stanza. The Commodores took the lead in the 8th Minute with Scott Dingwall doing a nice 360 turn and shot to give his side the lead. Sydney City came back into the contest in the 12th minute with a great team goal and nice finish by B Lam. The scoring for the half was not finished Chris Zabellos scored a great goal when his effort went into the top corner giving his side a two-one lead into the break.
The second half was a great half of Futsal with neither side giving an inch. Both goal keepers we called upon to make some fine saves during the half, with Shane Linton producing a fine double save late in the half.
