A solitary win and three tantalizing draws against Macot Vipers through a significant improvement in performance across all teams, gave the Boomerangs great heart last weekend, but unfortunately didn’t bring in enough competition points.
The 12s (boys and girls) both played very well; either team could have won their game, but alas a narrow loss and a draw were the results. The signs for next season look extremely promising for this age group – they will certainly get better results with the experience of this season under their belt.
The 14s continued their disappointing season. Both teams working hard, trying their best, but meeting tough opposition.
The 16 boys had to work hard for their win – and at half time the match was a very close affair. The boys showed their great second half form again to power away and looked comfortable in their win. The 16 girls tried their heart out, but again against strong opposition they had trouble converting their opportunities.
The Youth Men game was a torrid affair with both sides putting in huge efforts. After a really close tough tussle, nothing could separate the teams and it ended 2-2. Probably a fair result, but not what the Boomerangs Youth wanted – nor needed – to play finals futsal this season.
The Women also put in a really strong showing, but could not maintain the intensity and effort for the full match. A 4-2 defeat resulted.
The Men’s game was also a cracker, with two Konstantinou ‘specials’ and a couple of rocket ‘posters’ from Fulton. In a high scoring affair, a draw was the result. This makes qualifying for finals a simple affair for the men’s team. They must defeat Quake next weekend to leap frog them into 4th place. They also have a rescheduled game against Dural on that same game day at 11am. Dural currently sit atop the table with only one loss and one draw all season.
All in all a very exciting round against a strong Mascot. And we do it all again next weekend against Quake.
