With the teams coming back from Series Futsal Australia, the Round 5 matches were all extremely one sided, bar one fixture; the clash between Kingston and Pascoe Vale. On a positive note, some of the new teams proved they’re not taking the competition lightly. It is now time to take a look at which individuals made our Team of the Week.
Keeper – Deborah Lawrence (Kingston Royals FC)
Lawrence put on a stellar performance in an extremely tight game against Pascoe Vale FC, keeping her team ahead in their slender three-two win.
Kingston took the lead all three times in the game only to have the fighting Pascoe Vale equalise on two occasions.
Lawrence was in top form between the posts and was awarded the Player of the Game for that match.
Anchor – Barbara Carvajal (FC Balwyn)
Carvajal makes her debut in the Team of the Week on the back of a stellar defensive performance.
She kept her team strong from the back and assisted her side in keeping a clean sheet.
Carvajal is a consistent player for Balwyn and whilst she did not get on the scoresheet, it’s the simple yet effective things Carvajal does that helps create goals for her side.
Flank – Melissa Missailidis – Moreland FC
Whilst she is usually in the back line for Moreland FC, Missailidis scored four times in her side’s Round 5 win against Thomastown.
A strong and creative player like Missailidis cannot be left unmarked, and she got the better of the Thomastown players as they went down six-nil to the defending champions.
Flank – Guilia Pavia (FC Balwyn)
Pavia isn’t new to Team of the Week, but this week she was at the top of her game.
The quick flanker tormented the Preston United defence, putting four goals past the newly-formed side in just their second game.
Pavia is a talented player and an exceptionally good signing for FC Balwyn as they make their way up the ladder in their second season in Series Futsal Victoria Women (SFVW).
Target – Em Coppock (Richmond FC)
There really is no stopping Richmond’s Em Coppock.
The target put five goals past Preston FC in Richmond’s twelve-one demolition of the struggling side.
There is no doubt that she is one to watch every week, with her ability to hold the ball up and make it easy for her team to play around her.
Coppock is also not afraid to shoot or take players on, making her a dangerous player in SFVW.
