National Women’s Futsal League – Summary

The Loaded WaiBOP Women’s Futsal team has finished 6th in the National Women’s Futsal League.

In what was a thrilling end to the tournament, the team’s final game against Northern at the ASB Arena in Wellington was a real nailbiter.

WaiBOP was up 5-3 in the play-off for fifth with around two minutes on the clock, but Northern managed to claw it back to 5-5 and penalties were on the cards.

Unfortunately, we lost 3-1 from the spot kicks. Highlights here.

Earlier in the weekend, the opening day saw WaiBOP fall to two defeats. WaiBOP opened the tournament with a 5-1 loss to Central – Manawatu. The team then lost 7-2 to eventual winners, Bayside Pirates.

Things then picked up with a strong 5-4 victory over Capital Football. This result meant the team moved into the fifth place play-off against Northern.

A huge well done to the ladies who really did put up a solid fight all weekend.
