Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club 6-5 Dural Warriors
Eastern Suburbs Hakoah ended their season on a high overcoming Dural Warriors to secure some vital club championship points.
As mentioned in the opening line, this was a big result for Eastern Suburbs Hakoah in their successful survival. They scored four goals in the final six minutes for this well-earned victory having trailed 4-2 at that point.
At times in this one, Dural Warriors seemed to be in control of proceedings. However as has been the story of their season, they couldn’t quite turn that into three points with a few costly moments at the back costing them. They finished the season two points outside the top four.
This one went down to the final minute of action with both sides scoring late. Before that, Hakoah held a 2-1 lead at the half with Aurelia Collins and Claudia Valletta scoring for the hosts either side of a Samantha Nagy goal for the Warriors.
Dural Warriors then going on a three-goal run around the half hour with Rachel Perrins scoring all three to make it 4-2 to the visitors. Hakoah then responding with a three-goal run of their own a minute later after regrouping at a time out. Aurelia Collins scoring her second before Tamires Souza grabbed a brace of her own.
The final minute action packed with Dural Warriors scoring an equaliser with 56 seconds left, Samantha Nagy the scorer there. Missing chance for a winner soon after which proved costly as Gisella Pipino won the game for the hosts to make it 6-5.
Eastern Suburbs Hakoah Futsal Club 5-5 Dural Warriors
Eastern Suburbs Hakoah held on against a fast-finishing Dural Warriors to book a spot in next weekend’s finals series.
Having held a 5-2 lead with five or so minutes left, Hakoah then conceded three goals to make things tense in the last minute. However, they held on to book fourth spot in the league, next facing Mascot Vipers next Saturday.
Their opposition Dural Warriors just left themselves with a little too much to do in the final five minutes. Missing out on the finals by a point, their second half of the season was impressive nearly breaking into the four.
Ahmed Sweedan got things started in this one with a goal to set his side on their way. But mistakes started to creep in and Hakoah weren’t willing to let their visitors get away with it. Emmanuel Tzanakes and Cesar Perego both scoring in the 8th minute. A 2-1 lead they held heading into the break.
Andrew Luttringer restoring parity for the visitors before three goals in six minutes came at the other end. Adam Paulsen, Jonathan Lynch and Lucas Vidal giving the hosts a 5-2 lead.
Which was pegged back to the visitor’s credit with Cameron Philp and Jamal Belkadi both finding the back of the net to make it 5-5. However, they couldn’t find the sixth goal they needed.
The draw setting up a clash between Eastern Suburbs Hakoah and Mascot Vipers next Saturday.
Dural Warriors 7-4 Mountain Majik Futsal Club
Dural Warriors kept their finals hopes alive with a round 12 victory over Mountain Majik in their final home game.
It’s the first time in which the Dural Warriors have beaten a top four side this season, the Warriors bouncing back from a round 11 defeat in style.
They outscored their opponents 7-1 in the second half of this one with Ahmed and Hamza Sweedan both scoring two goals each, while Joshua Montgomery, Cameron Philp and Zachary Sparkes also found the back of the net. They will be looking to show their teeth once again when they take on Campbelltown City Quake away from home.
There have been warning signs that this has been coming for the Majik. They were going through the motions in this one with a 3-0 then 4-1 lead. Jett Mccue-Shore opened the scoring in the 2nd minute before Christopher Barbera, Anthony Haddad and Jordan Guerreiro joined in. The Majik conceding seven from that point on falling to their first loss in seven.
Macarthur Quake Futsal 2-2 Dural Warriors
Macarthur Quake and Dural Warriors couldn’t be separated in their 2-2 draw at Minto Indoor Sports Centre.
With both sides looking to secure a place in the finals, Quake staged a second half comeback to walk away with a point condemning the visitors to their sixth draw of the season as they potentially drop out of the four.
The Warriors took a two-nil lead into the break with goals to Charlotte-Paige Jonsson and Kayla Osborn. Jonsson in the third minute with Rachel Perrins setting her up. Before Kayla Osborn doubled the advantage just before half time, a high press leading to that goal.
Being the second game of the weekend for both sides, it seemed to hit Dural more and the Quake were good enough to come back in the second half. Alvina Khoshaba scoring their first in the 23rd minute with a second bite of the cherry from a free kick. Before she doubled her tally after the half hour, interchanging passes with Linda Dudek on three occasions before finishing.
Sarah Easthope denying them a winner with a triple save late on with both sides sharing the points.
