The Boomerangs are a tough club to play and the travel will make it very tough for visiting clubs so an overall excellent performance by us.
The 12 girls, the 14 boys, the 14 girls, the 16 boys all remain unbeaten after 4 rounds while the 12 boys are on a 3 game win streak as are the Womens and the mens are hitting some form winning their past 2 games.
Next week we take on Quake at home in what should be a brilliant day of futsal with many games seeing teams 1 vs 2 going head to head.
All the boys were on time but with Fraser coaching in Canberra I took the position and won both my games! Fraser look out!!! We got on well with all the people at dural everything went well the kids had a so much fun they all got playing time equally.
All the boys did well and were very tired but all had fun and so did I. It was all so fast and busy busy busy.
A rampant Inner West under 12 boys returned from the long road trip to Canberra with all three points last Saturday, after an 8 – 2 shellacking of a well beaten Boomerangs FC side.
Anyone entering the Southern Cross Stadium a few minutes late would have scarcely believed the scoreboard as our boys raced to an early 3 nil lead via the boot of Nathan Muskitta.
More damage was done to the home sides morale in the first half, as an own goal, a fourth for Muskitta and a goal from Francesco Terranova gave the scorers a busy first 20 minutes, with the solitary goal for Boomerangs coming from a free kick.
With the match well and truly “in the bag”, coach Fraser opted to use the second half as an exercise in keeping possession and swap his troops around into areas of the court to which the boys were less accustomed.
It was during this period, where a small amount of confusion raised its head, with the hosts being able to pull a goal back on the counter attack after our boys had bombed forward in search of yet more goals.
It proved only a minor setback however as a second own goal, and a fifth for Muskitta rounded out a totally dominant performance – one which stretched the sides winning streak to three matches on the spin, following their narrow opening round 1 loss.

The girls will breath a sigh of relief after putting this long road trip to the capital comfortably to bed. Despite the final score line the Boomerangs had the first serious chance after 3 minutes when Sheridan was called upon to slide out and clear. Unfortunately she handled the ball outside the “D”, resulting in a free kick, which luckily for us flew high and wide. From that moment the girls then started to stamp some authority on the game.
After 8 minutes Princess made a typical barnstorming run down the right and cut the ball to the top of the “D”, where Dimity coolly opened the account for the day. On the 13 minute mark a quick throw by Sheridan put Princess on the attack and she slid the ball through the legs of the Boomerangs player to Dimity, who then returned the pass to Princess to bury into the net, making it 2-0.
The team goal of the game came when Chiara played the ball in to Angelique, near our goal line on the left hand side. She in turn played it to Bianca who set up Siena, who then “nuttied” the keeper, making it 3-0. On 16 minutes Siena got her 2nd from another nice pass by Chiara. Siena then hit the post on the 18th minute mark after some fine work by Bianca. Our 4th goal came just on half time when Angelique started and finished the move with a neat pass to Chiara who gave her a quick return to slot home, making it a comfortable, but hard fought, 5-0 lead at the break.
With the coaches half time talk ringing in their ears, the girls sprinted out of blocks on the whistle. Good pressure resulted in a corner kick, which was taken by Bianca, who quickly saw Marissa standing at halfway, with glee in her eyes when she saw the ball rolling towards her unopposed. With a mighty swing of the left peg she crashed the ball through the congested traffic and into the net after less than a minute on the clock. Straight from kick off Sheridan then had to deal with a 2 on 1 by quickly smothering the ball and in turn set us on the attack again. From that move Siena then completed her hat trick with a nicely taken goal to make it 7-0. Georgia then made a great run down the sideline and cut the ball hard to Bianca to finish of a nice move. Princess then went close when she hit the post after 5 minutes. She didn’t have to wait long though as she completed a nice move from a corner kick involving Bianca and Marissa to make it 9-0.
Georgia then turned provider to set up Princess at the back post, which completed her hat trick. With 8 minutes of the half gone Princess wanted more and she got her 4th when she intercepted the ball and calmly slotted it home making the score line 11-0. The “other” Miss Galic then had a chance to reduce the deficit with 10 minutes to go but was denied by Sheridan, as all thoughts of charity were clearly dispelled. Dimity then increased the score when she put away a nice pass by Princess after 13. Marissa and Siena then combined from a kick in to set up Bianca to finish off the scoring with 3 minutes to go, giving bragging rights to the NSW Galic’s on this occasion with an impressive 13-0 win.
Well done a girls a very fine team performance.

Besides the 3 points “Frustrating” would be the best way to describe our performance on the weekend.
In a game where we had 27 shots on goal we only managed to score 3, it left players parents and especially coaching staff very frustrated.
The game was never in question from the opening minutes but in a game where we should have had it sealed in the first half the game was sealed mid way through the second half with our 3rd goal. The consolation besides the 3 points was our 3rd clean sheet in 4 games.
Congratulations girls, another win, though i must say this week you really earned your 3 points. From the time the whistle blew with both teams on equal 1st place on the ladder we knew we had a challenge on our hands.
Boomerangs were determined from the very start, they had the first shot toward our goal, thankfully they missed. The opposition seemed to be stronger than our girls but our girls tried hard to play the game and keep the ball moving down the court. I could see our girls become frustrated with the physicality of the other team and were finding it hard to relax, if they were going to win they had to relax and play their own game, yet they needed to defend.
Rhianna made a run and put away the first goal for us, Boomerangs then became more hungry and aggressive, our girls reacted quickly and began defending stronger. We ended the first half at 1 nil.
2nd half continued pretty much the same way, both teams had shots on goals and 4 minutes into the 2nd half, they equalised. Both teams were finding it hard to score, Boomerangs going wide of goal and our girls hitting the post a couple of times. Two minutes to go and it was still 1 – 1 and i began to think a draw was on the cards, both teams were frustrated, they both wanted the 3 points, it was a fight as the clock ticked! With 45 seconds left on the clock, Rhianna broke away and the ball met the back of the net. The girls knew even with so little time they had to defend and they did, the whistle blew on 2-1, there was no celebrating just lots of long sighs of relief and a few faces of exhaustion. The drive to Canberra was for a great game and a well deserved win!

Last week concern was expressed about our girls not being good at travelling long distances away to play and today’s game showed it!!! Flat footed from the 3 hours driving to get there, the girls were still able to score early with good passing to Sammy S who beat the keeper. Boomerangs played a very physical game and were able to equalise. Our girls were able to hit the front again when Georgia K used her strength and skill to find the back of the net.
Going to the break 2-1 up, the girls were not able to score in the second half. Boomerangs scored the equaliser but our girls struggled to combine and make passes stick. The nexus was broken when Boomerangs scored again. As was said in the post match round up, the girls need to track back in defence. With 5 minutes left, the girls had chances that went wide. In the final 10 seconds, Boomerangs scored again and nailed the coffin.
With the final score a 4-2 loss, the girls re-grouped and started magnificently for the late arriving women’s side. As was observed, if they played like that in their own game, they would have won easily.
Congratulations to Charlene Borg the 16’s keeper for her consistent and fearless keeping in both games.
Come kick-off time we had no goal keeper and 5 of our 6 players who were available were all yet to arrive.
So thankfully our 16 girls stepped up to the mark and with Sarah Semaan leading the way the girls played brilliantly to not only keep the Boomerangs at bay but 15 year old Amy Dahdah scored the opening goal after a good ball by Sa.
The entourage finally rocked up and after a few minutes of warm up the girls went about their usual business and when Nichole Laws scored her first goal of the season the 3 points were safely tucked away.
It wasn’t our best performance but considering everything we had to overcome it was our most important.
