The fight for places in the semi-finals of the women’s Futsal Premier League continues as six teams vie for four spots with two rounds remaining. And, with only Woden Valley and Boomerangs FS sure of a place in the semis there is still lots to play for in the last two fixtures for four clubs, Whilst Gungahlin United Suns, El Diva Belwest, Players FC and Belconnen United fight for their season, Woden Valley needs only one point to be mathematically sure of finishing top, even though with their impressive goal difference it would take a disastrous last set of matches for the to fall from their perch.

A comfortable, if routine, 3-0 win over Belwest Foxes that featured goals from leading scorer Ashleigh Palombi, Julia De Angelis and Emma Thornton have put Woden in a position where they could even lose to Players FC and the Suns in their games left and still claim top spot. The reigning champions, Boomerangs FS, cemented their second place with an equally simple 4-0 win over Players FC with goals shared between Rebecca Collins, Laura Jones, Michaela Day and Rachel Crittenden. The Boomerangs could have a major say in who makes the finals as they face Belconnen United this Friday.

The Blue Devils have kept themselves in contention after scraping past Tuggeranong United 3-2 in an exciting match. Alison Lound scored twice for Belconnen with Brittany Smale adding the third goal whilst Kristy Helmers and Katherine McFadyen replying for a Tuggeranong team that needs a win if they are to avoid finishing bottom of the pile.

In the other fixture played last week Gungahlin United Suns were beaten 4-2 by El Diva Belwest. El Diva needed a win to keep alive their hopes of qualifying and they got it via goals from Michelle Thompson (2), Sabrina Spinapolice and Kim Crocker. Kiley Green and Dianne Wilson netted for the Suns who must take points off Tuggeranong if they are to keep their third place position.
