Series Futsal Victoria Womens, Youth, Round 19, 2018/19
FC Carlton Heart 1-9 Fawkner FC
CARL – C.Giasizzo
FAW – L.Abdullatif 5, A.Briedis 2, A.Elrafei & A.Kaddour
Our first game for 2019 saw Carlton face ladder leaders Fawkner. With only a few games to play Fawkner had wrapped up the title and were just looking to build their lead at the top. A strong first half from Fawkner gave them the momentum to push on in the game, lead by a Laila Abdullatif hat trick and another from newcomers Ava Briedis had the game all but wrapped up at the half time break.
The second half, despite some early resistance from the Heart was much the same as Abduallatif finished the game with five goals to her name while Briedis added another to take her tally to two for the game as well as goals from Aaliyah Elrafei & Alissa Kaddour powering Fawkner to a comfortable win. Christina Giasizzo would find the net to ensure Carlton did not go home empty handed but it woudn’t be enough as Fawkner ran out big winners in the end.
Player of the game – Laila Abdullatif (Fawkner FC)
