Borough SL 5 Healing 6
Borough did not make a great start arriving with just four players. Healing sportingly agreed to play match 4 vs. 4. Still an advantage as they had two subs to utilise.
These games often follow a pattern; the four do very well until the extra energy of the six takes control of the match.
Size wise this was a little (Boro’) and large contest. Healing scored first but followed did not go to plan. Boro’ equalised took lead, and then lost a goal. 2-2 at break.
Borough was playing skilful futsal, clever passing, creative movement, from goal keeper to the forwards, no one was missed out. A pleasure to referee.
Boro’ kept going second half to lead 3-2; 4-2 and 5-4. Boro’s energy tank was trained but still they got back to 5-5 only for Healing to score with games last kick.
Borough won thanks to handicap system.
Galacticos 6 Warriors 2
With a very strong squad and extra players on bench this game was always going to be a challenge for Warriors.
Warriors kicked off with a 2-0 handicap advantage. Well organised in defence they defended well to the break, going in a goal down but still ahead on handicap.
Galacticos stepped up a level in the second half, played some great stuff taking control of the game. A Warriors goal to take score to 2-1 gave them hope, but not for long, as excellent Galacticos opened a 6-1 gap before an excellent individual goal by Warriors closed game.
