Monaro Panthers continues to lead the way in the Boy’s under-12 Junior Futsal Premier League after they made it four wins from four matches with a 9-1 defeat of Belconnen United at Stromlo High School on Tuesday evening. The Panthers have been in great form so far in this competition and with Nicolas Felizzi scoring at will look in great shape. Felizzi bagged two more in the win over Belconnen, moving onto an amazing nineteen goals already this season, as the Panthers raced into a 6-0 half-time lead. Anthony Macarlino led the scoring with a hat-trick and there was also a double from Max Farinazzo, Andrew Noack and James Driscoll completed the victory whilst an eighth goal of the season from Leon Michl was scant consolation for the Blue Devils who are fourth.
A seven-goal haul from Liam Wille was the highlight for Tuggeranong United as they brushed aside Woden Valley Lightning 15-3 on an evening of goals at Stromlo. United was 7-2 up at the interval with Wille in great form in front of goal. Ben Obst added to the scoring by netting a treble, he now has six goals in three matches, as does Zedan Mutlu who scored twice in the win. Matthew King and David Gurney were also on target for a rampant Tuggeranong with an own goal rounding out their big victory. Lightning kept pace for most of the match and were rewarded with goals from Samuel Mazey-Frankcom (2) and Jack Bolton.
The opening match of the Round had earlier set the tone for the day with Woden Valley Thunder and Weston-Molonglo FC sharing seventeen goals in a topsy-turvy thriller. Weston eventually emerged triumphant by 10-7 in a crazy match filled with excellent skills and some superb goals. Riley Rawiri top scored for Weston with four, but it was an all round team effort as Lorenzo Pilapil (2), Jack Tallarida-Lyons (2) and Jordan Host also found the back of the net. Luca Gagliardi was defiant in defeat for the Thunder, hammering home four goals of his own but even coupled with strikes from William Granger, Tom Howarth and Armani Taffa the Woden side fell just short.
