Series Futsal Victoria Womens, Youth, Round 16, 2018/19
FC Carlton Heart 2-3 Melbourne Amazons FC
CARL – M.Suratie & C.Giasizzo
MELB – M.Bagang 2 & A.Elker
Our first game of round sixteen saw Carlton take on the in form Amazons in what was a tough first clash for both sides. Early on it was the Amazons who opened the scoring through a Aliesha Elker strike and that would be the only breakthrough of the first half as the Amazons held a slender one goal lead at the break.
The Amazons got an all important second goal at the start of the second half through Mariella Bagang to have her side in control, before Carlton hit back through a Malka Suratie strike to halve the deficit and keep the Heart in the game. Bagang hit another quality strike this time off the post and in to resotre the two goal advantage and despite a late strike from youngster Christina Giasizzo it wouldn’t be enough for the Heart to send the game to penalties as the Amazons continue their winning run.
Player of the game – Mariella Bagang (Melbourne Amazons FC)
