Belconnen’s chances of retaining their JOMA Futsal Premier League crown have taken a major blow as they succumbed to a shock 2-1 defeat to WVFC Timberwolves in Round Thirteen played at Woden Indoor Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The Timberwolves stunned the Blue Devils by recording only their second win of the season in a tight match in which Belconnen were guilty of missing ample opportunities to take something tangible from the contest. Kole Aitken and Evan Steele were the Timberwolves goal heroes with goalkeeper John Noja making some outstanding saves to preserve their narrow advantage. Jason O’Dwyer did net for the Blue Devils, his fifteenth goal of the year, but it wasn’t enough to gain even a draw. The reigning champions head into the final round next week three points clear of Cooma Tigers but with a worse goal difference and know a win is vital if they are to make the finals.

There were no such problems for the Canberra Olympic Supercats who made the most of the suspension of regular Cooma Tigers goalkeeper Francois Bangweni by smashing nine goals past his plucky replacement Nik Mikac in a resounding 9-2 victory. The competition’s leading scorers, Elia Salloum and Scott Manson, both grabbed a hat-trick to take their totals to 25 and 22 respectively, with Lee Pietrukowski (2) and Adrian Dowling adding the other goals and keeping the Supercats huge twelve point lead at the top of the ladder intact. A brace from Goran Josifovski, who now has ten for the season, was of little consequence to the final outcome.

The Canberra City Prawns excellent run continued with a hard-fought 7-4 win over Boomerangs FS in an entertaining encounter at ANU. A hat-trick from George Cattanach was the highlight with a brace from Futsalroo international Pat Ross-Magee and goals from Chris Lee and Trent Flanigan ultimately proving the difference in a fluid match. The Boomerangs, who have struggled to hit the heights for much of 2010, did manage four goals of their own in reply from Steven Klug (2), Travis Dries and Sam Smith. The win means the Prawns have a four point lead over their nearest challengers in second place.

TUFC Gunners look likely to end the season third following a 6-4 win over ANU FC in another ding-dong affair. The Gunners, who have the potential to win the competition on their day, struck half a dozen times to see off the students with Luke Fattore leading the way with a double. The rest of the goals were shared amongst the squad with single strikes to each of Martin Corujo, Tim Mathas, Jackson Kupke and Peter McLachlan. Lukas Cole led the scoring for ANU FC with a hat-trick, he now has seven for the season, whilst Phillip Mackay took his personal tally into double figures with the other ANU goal.
