Finally the futsal Premier league season kicked off.
Round 1 saw us host rivals and last seasons Club Championship runners up the Enfield Rovers in what promised to be a hard fought first round.
As is always the case the clubs Academy and Pre-Academies acted as a curtain raiser and there was some excellent talent on show which leaves the future of our sport looking in great hands for years to come.
When proceedings finally got under way it was our 12 Boys which drew first blood in a game which saw two teams with end of season silverware in mind go head to head in a game that ebbed and flowed for the entire 40 minutes.
Twice the Rovers went ahead but our fighting qualities we there for all to see and we managed to seal a hard fought victory.
Final Score : 3-2
Scorers : Patrick Scibilio x2, Martin Fernandez x1
Our 12 Girls have had a good preseason and continued their good form with a comprehensive 10-1 victory.
The girls led 4-1 at half time and continued their fine goal scoring form in the second half.
Match Report on the 12 Girls from M. Bugden
The first game of the season is always an important one. To get off to a good start is vital in an 8 team competition.
Our girls have all bonded together beautifully and it showed on the court as they performed as a team. From the start we were immediately into our groove with great ball movement and players covering each other to immediately close down our opposition.
Our first goal of season 2012/2013 after other fluid attacking raid that started from back court with Princess powering home the goal. From the re-start we were straight back into it and after another came from Savannah with a very nice finish.
We continued playing our own unique style of futsal for the remainder of the game and 2 other players joined the goal scoring list with Annalise and Isabella both finishing with great goals.
Whilst four players scored goals, these were only possible as a result of very good teamwork, there is a very special mention to Tori, Santina and Elena for their awesome play as their contribution was vital to the overall result. Lastly I would like to mention Lauren our goal keeper, the last line of defence. Her effort and shot stopping kept a very enthusiastic and gutsy opposition team to 1 goal WELL DONE.
Keep up the great work team.
Final Score : 10-1
Scorers : Princess Ibini Isei x5, Savannah Seixas x3, Isabella Libri x1, Annalise Schiraldi x1
