Round 8 Match Reports
SFL Rd8: South Fremantle Back Up To Second Place
South Fremantle MC 5
- Daniel Muzzarelli 3, Mohammad Gholami 1, Marko Matic 1
Stirling Spaniards 1
- James Forman 1
South Fremantle MC introduced 2 new players this round, Marko Matic and Mohammad Gholami, and they produced immediate success as they scored a goal each in the 5 – 1 win over an in form Stirling Spaniards. The player who seemed to benefit the most, however, was Daniel Muzzarelli who continued scoring as he has been, but this week 3 in one game was his new game high. The new added support and visually confident side from South Fremantle looks to be coming together nicely, just in time for the finals. Next week will see the return of a few players that have been missing, plus the possible appearance from a new signing made last week, from neighbouring side Muita Calma.
On the other side, Stirling showed this week that being in form doesn’t automatically get you the win. The 5 – 1 result only shows that South Fremantle took most of their chances as Stirling most definitely had more of the possession. Although they continue to play well, they need to finish off all their great possession with goals. James Forman once again got on the score sheet, but needs to be joined by another goal scorer for them to finish in the top 4. Tough ask this week as they take on the league leaders at 12.30pm.
SF Rd8: Calibre 12 Melville Score 9 Against Belmont
Calibre 12 Melville 9
- Diego Garcia 4, Sachin Ramayn 4, Stephen Ray 1
Belmont Nile Flow 2
- Aaron 1, Lionel 1
Calibre 12 Melville are back in the race to make the top 4 with an impressive win over Belmont. The loss by Stirling puts them level on points with them with only goals for keeping them ahead. Goal difference is the same at +3. If Calibre 12 miss out on the top 4 there is no doubt that Diego Garcia will be going for the top scorer award, however his team mate Sachin Ramayn may have intentions of getting that title for himself. 4 goals each showed both players intentions and they now move right up with the other top scorers. The goal scorers table will go up before this weeks games and will be updated regularly as we head towards the finals.
Belmont Nile Flow have officially sent themselves down to Division 1 for the October season and will be looking to sign new players so they can return to the Premier league in January. Till then they have 2 more games left for the season, against Scarborough and Stirling.
SFL Rd8: Fremantle Muita Calma Hold Off The Samba Boys
Fremantle Muita Calma 4
- Nestor Fonseca 2, Tiago Fracasso 1, Luke Tidy 1
Scarborough Samba Boys 2
- Thiago Vieira 1, Victor Brauner 1
The match of the round was always going to be the battle between 1st and 2nd. A new energised looking Scarborough Samba Boys took to the court full of confidence. All the players in this game were out to show their best as they all look to hopefully be selected into the Futsal West State Futsal Team heading to Melbourne in September.
The in form players at the moment in the league all got on the score sheet as they showed everyone present how the game should be played. Nestor Fonseca seems to only step up his game when faced with stronger opposition as he led his side with 2 of his own to give his team the early goals and the lead. The Samba Boys found themselves playing catch up, and when Fremantle seemed to start making little mistakes they found themselves back in the game. Unfortunately it was too little too late. Maybe an extra 10 minutes and this game could’ve been closer. For now though we can only hope we get to see this match up again in the Playoffs.
