Round 7 Match Reports
SFL Rd7: Samba Boys Too Good For South Fremantle MC
Scarborough Samba Boys 8
- Victor Brauner 3, Leandro Paixao 3, Thiago Vieira 2
South Fremantle MC 3
- Daniel Muzzarelli 2, Nariman Khankhalili 1
The Samba Boys, this week, saw the welcome return of Victor Brauner and Leandro Paixao to their starting line up. The two looked like they were on a mission to make up for their time away, which saw the team drop to fourth on the table during their absence. 3 goals from each of them quickly put them in control of the game, and with 2 more from Thiago Vieira, the game was in the bag for the Boys from Scarborough. As finals approach The Samba Boys will be looking to bring back all their stars and have a full strength side for when they will need them the most.
South Fremantle really struggled this game as they were missing a few players who could’ve helped make this game a lot closer. South Fremantle’s Daniel Muzzarelli was the stand out player who netted 2 of the 3 goals for his team. Unfortunately he was also the only player in his team that was able to match the Scarborough players for pace and at times found himself being over worked. The upcoming weekend should be very different with the side adding more youth and pace as they look to get the win over an in form Stirling Spaniards side.
SFL Round 7: Fremantle Muita Calma Steam Roll Belmont
Fremantle Muita Calma 7
- Nestor Fonseca 3, Thiago Fracasso 1, Saeed Danesh 1, Harry Ilosono 1, Salman Alhammadi 1
Belmont Nile Flow 1
- Cham 1
Fremantle Muita Calma continued their unbeaten run in the league with a 7 – 1 thrashing of the new look Belmont Nile Flow side who, unfortunately, were without their MVP from last week. Sonny Albuquerque. Fremantle were in control for most of this game and it was only due to an error in defending that they conceded a goal which was neatly finished off by Cham from Belmont.
A player who hasn’t been scoring much for Fremantle, Nestor Fonseca, stepped up in this game to net 3 goals and put his name firmly amoungst the other leading scorers in the league. The top goalscorer award will be really close this season and it looks like there will be a few players in contention.
The stars of the league were really out on display this weekend as they put on a show for the MVP voters and the selectors of the Futsal West State team, which will be announced over the coming weeks to compete in a tournament to be held in Melbourne at the end of September. These announcements of upcoming tournaments and free trips Interstate have really encouraged the standout players to express themselves and we should see many more individual talents rise up as we head towards the final games of this season.
SFL Round 7: Melville And Stirling Share The Points
Calibre 12 Melville 3
- Diego Garcia 1, Liam Frejiszyn 1, Adriano Martino1
Stirling Spaniards 3
- James Forman 2, Jason Wilson 1
In what was clearly the match of the round, goals were very hard to come by, as the 2 goalkeepers showed why they are hot property for the October season. Rob Kostic from Calibre 12 Melville and Julius Ko from Stirling Spaniards seemed to be saving everything and it was only some persistant strikers that managed to finally get it past them in what could’ve easily have been a 10 all goal feast with the number of attempts on goal that were had.
A draw was indeed the most deserved result, but did not do Calibre 12 any favours as they start to lose touch with the league leaders. They are now 3 points out of the top four and nearly 11 goals behind in goal difference with only 3 games left in the regular season. The Melville team have struggled to hit form after winning the League Cup and will have to really step it up if they want to be there in the Finals.
Quietly going about their business are The Stirling Spaniards who at times produced some beautiful Futsal which was a pleasure to watch, and now seem to moving the ball around with such ease and composure. Team captain, Alex Soares, is leading the team well and has his own goalscoring secret weapon in James Forman, who is now also in contention for the top goalscorer award. These boys could be the team to watch out for in the Finals and the October season if they continue in this form.
