The Western Australia Cougars made the early running on day one of the Gilligan’s Futsal International Challenge at the new Redlynch Central Sports Stadium yesterday.
The visitors trounced the Nomads 6-0 in the tournament opener, before disposing of the Korea-based Mustangs 9-1.
Japanese team Forca FC were also unbeaten in their first two contests and were particularly impressive in dominating the Western Australia Vikings 8-0.
They were lucky to take the points against local side the Stingrays earlier in the day, prevailing 3-2.
Competition continues today at 11am, with the official opening of the multi-million dollar facility at 10am.
The tournament line-up took a blow in the lead-up to yesterday’s opening day when a team from the Solomon Islands was forced to pull out.
But the standard has not dropped in their absence and tournament organisers expect a world-class final tomorrow at 2.30pm.
Quarter finals start tonight at 7pm and continue at 8.30am tomorrow with semi-finals at 11.30am and 12.30pm.
Daily entry is $7 for adults and $4 for kids under 14, while a family day pass is $18. The stadium is located on Chelsea Lane, off Larson Rd at Redlynch.
