Two emphatic victories from two matches has ensured that Canberra City Prawns keep up the chase on Boomerangs FS at the top of the men’s Futsal Premier League as Round 9 was completed last week.

The Prawns were too clinical for both ANU FC and TUFC Gunners smashing seventeen goals in two games with Daniel Fulton leading the way with six goals across the two grades. The Prawns started their drive towards the top of the ladder with a convincing 10-3 win over ANU FC. Fulton grabbed four in that encounter with team mate Robert Cattanach also scoring four goals. Chris Lee and George Cattanach added the others in a fairy one-sided game. Tom McLachlan did score twice for ANU FC, and there was a goal for Phillip Mackay, but the Canberra City team was comfortable winners.

Fulton followed up his four-goal haul against ANU FC with a brace as TUFC Gunners were beaten 7-2. Fulton’s double was added to by a hat-trick from George Cattanach taking his season total to twelve for the campaign. Pat Ross-Magee also scored twice in the Prawns win which showed their class and expertise of the indoor game. Tim Mathas and James McLachlan scored for the Gunners but McLachlan’s evening turned sour when he saw red in the second half.

Earlier in the evening the Gunners had blitzed the WV Timberwolves winning 5-0 in what was possibly their best display of the season to date. The goals were shared amongst the team with Daniel Beaumont, Lucas Fattore, Jackson Kupke, Tim Mathas and Tim Stewart all finding a way past Jamie Richardson in the Timberwolves goal. The win was important as it gave the Gunners a five point cushion over the Timberwolves in the battle for fourth place.

It’s looking increasingly unlikely that the Canberra Olympic Supercats will be in the mix to defend their crown as they lost for the sixth time this season, narrowly falling 1-2 to league leaders Boomerangs FS. Peter Farrelly scored for the first time this season for the Supercats but goals from Michael Reeve and Glenn Smith edged out one of the pre-season favourites and it looks a long way back from here. However, few would write off this experienced group of players just yet.

Finally, it was a goal extravaganza as Queanbeyan City met Woden Valley with the NSW based club side winning 7-5. Zach Knight bagged a hat-trick to take over as leading scorer in the Golden Boot race whilst there was also a treble for Rory Devlin who moves onto eleven goals for the year. Mathew Ryan added the other goal for a Queanbeyan side that is still up amongst the front-runners. Simon Hinde netted four of Woden’s five goals, the other coming from Daniel Sparrow, but despite this heroic effort his team was narrowly beaten and still search for a first win of the competition.
