Rd1: SFL Challenge Cup - Champs Start With A Win
Pictured: Diego Garcia scores for Fremantle Muita Calma from the penalty spot
The WA State Futsal League returned for it's 6th season of the SFL Challenge Cup, which traditionally runs from October to December and starts with a replay of the previous season.
The afternoon began with the mouth watering clash between the defending Champions, Fremantle Muita Calma, against the Hammond Park Stars. This year the difference was the same but the fans were treated to more goals as Fremantle took the game out, 5 goals to 3, with the main talking point being the 2 goals scored by former Hammond Park player Diego Garcia, which in the end, was the difference between the two teams.
Round 1 Result:
Fremantle Muita Calma 5 - Tiago Fracasso 2, Diego Garcia 2, Harry Ilosono 1
Hammond Park Stars 3 - Chihiro 2, Sasa 1
The next round will see a bye for the defending champs as they embark on their journey to Cairns to compete in the Cairns Futsal International Club Challenge, the prize for winning the 2011 SFL Challenge Cup.
