Round 12 of the Futsal Premier League saw the “Magic derby” and saw the top 2 clubs in the club championship go head to head in what would ultimately prove who would win this seasons Club Championship. The question was posed how is MAGIC SPELT? Was it going to be Magic with a G and a C or Majik with a J and K.
Unfortunately for the new kids on the block they huffed and puffed but didn’t blow anything away.
In fact we blew the opposition away in the top of the table clash winning 6 games and 1 draw accumulating 19 points whilst the opposition picked up 7. Incredibly the 2 games we dropped we expected to win. The 12g lost their first game of the season to a well drilled Mountain side. In what was always going to be a difficult game considering we were missing 4 girls and our keeper. While our other undefeated team the 16g also lost having conceded more goals on the weekend (7) then they had in the 11 games previously combined (6). MM were clinical and fully deserved their win. The Youth Men was a hard fought encounter which saw our boys draw but remain in 3rd position. If not for Mark Brackenrig in the MM goal we could’ve easily secured 7 wins for the day.
Our 12b ran riot in the second half to win by 5 after going in 2-2 at halftime and behind twice. The result leaves us equal first.
14b won a close game 3-2 after being down 2-0 and leaves our boys only a point behind the league leaders.
Our 14g always lift against top opposition and this round was no different knocking off the competition leaders and have now having secured their position in the semi finals.
The 16 boys put a breathtaking performance together and easily accounted for a very good MM team 6-2, having led 6-0 at one stage. It sure left everyone questioning just how the team will miss the semi finals after such an impressive performance.
The Open Women’s were equally impressive putting on one of their best performances of the season against one of the competitions best sides winning 5-2, after leading 4-0 at one stage. The result keeps our girls in the running to make the semis, currently sitting equal 3rd but 5th on goal difference.
The Open Men’s capped off a great day winning their fixture with Adrian Vizzari bagging 4.
Full credit to Mountain Majik on an excellent first season, they have performed admirably and a lot better than surely anyone could’ve expected.
But magic is still definitely and very clearly still spelt with a G and with a C. With 17 points on the day MAGIC – us, take a commanding 27 point lead (an entire round) going into the final 2 rounds of the competition.
