The second round of the Nike V-League was played on Sunday in less than perfect conditions outside it made a great day to come indoors and watch some Futsal. After a disappointing round one, round two was back to the quality the Nike V-League is known for.
Mickleham FC vs. Brimbank FC
The two new teams in the 2013 Nike V-League did battle in round 2 and it was to be a real battle. Mickleham in round one had shocked the Vic Vipers, Brimbank were courageous against Pascoe Vale so both teams had decent lead ups to the match.
The first half was end-to-end with both teams creating a large number of chances, Brimbank took their chances with Eric Hamre getting a double and captain Mark Borchet racing Brimbank to a 3-0 lead midway through the first half. This socked Mickleham into gear and the quickly pulled the 3 goals back to lead 4-3 at the break thanks to goals from Phil Robotis, Ahmed Muktar, Lachlan Campbell and Michel Putson.
The second half was more of a battle with both teams not giving an inch and when Vlado Zoric extended Mickleham’s lead it looked like Brimbank would be 0-2. However Futsal is a funny game and when Eric Hamre completed his hattrick it was game on. Brimkank than took a share of the point thanks to captain Mark Borchet as the match finished in an entertaining 5-5 draw.
