Woden Valley has a three point lead at the top of the Women’s Futsal Premier League after four completed rounds leading the chasing pack, which includes current champions Boomerangs FS, by three points in what is shaping up to be a highly competitive competition.
Woden was able to take over at the top of the table after they convincingly defeated Tuggeranong United 5-0 in their latest fixture. Helped on their way by an unfortunate own goal by Sigourney Dunk, Woden were too good for their opponents and added goals from Sophie Kochinos, who grabbed a brace, and the Palombi sisters, Ashleigh and Brittany as valiant Tuggeranong were simply out-gunned.
Reigning champions Boomerangs FS sounded out a warning of intent to the rest of the league as they dismantled the previously unbeaten El Diva Belwest 7-1 in a one-sided match. Michelle Aurousseau and Rachel Crittenden led the scoring with two goals apiece and there were single strikes for Sarah Crittenden, Amanda Aurousseau and Rebecca Collins as the Boomerangs clicked into gear and played the kind of Futsal that won them the title twelve months ago. Kim Crocker scored her fourth of the season in the beaten El Diva team.
Gungahlin United Suns kept up their pressure near the top of the table by winning their match with Belwest Foxes by the odd-goal in five. Laura Sofoulis, Brittany Tully and Dianne Wilson netted in the 3-2 win with goals from Meredith Leach and Tahlia Stanley too little for the Foxes. And it was a good week for Belconnen United. Not only did they hold the league leaders Woden Valley to a 3-3 draw in their catch-up match on Thursday, they followed it up with a 3-2 win over Players FC 24 hours later. Alison Lound, Jess McEwan and Brittany Smale struck in their share of the spoils with Woden, for whom Julia De Angelis, Kochinos and Brittany Palombi replied, whilst Lound, Clare Munro and jess Goyne were the goal-getters in the Friday night clash which ended with a narrow victory over a Players FC side for whom Najwa Allen struck twice.
