hummel F-League Series One
hummel F-League kicks off with a bang
The 2012 hummel F-League kicked off in Melbourne over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend played in front of great crowds at the YMCA Derrimut in Melbourne’s western suburbs in what was an enthralling start to the series across two days.
Vic Vipers and Dural Warriors were crowned the early leaders of Series One as they each grabbed a trio of decisive victories but all teams were highly competitive despite a couple of lopsided score-lines.
A healthy crowd also made for an exciting atmosphere as almost 400 people piled into the YMCA over the two days to catch a glimpse of all the action.
Excitement was the name of the game as a whopping 46 different players scored 85 great goals with Dural duo Greg Giovenali and Nathan Niski snaring five apiece, followed by four-goal efforts from Warriors team-mates Michael Figueira and Jarrod Basger and Vipers ace Jonathan Barrientos.
While it’s early days, the Victorian teams are split with undefeated St Albans Strikers rounding out the top-three and Melbourne Heart and Jaguars yet to open their account.
North of the border East Coast Heat are fourth following their win and draw, and Parramatta Blues and Boomerangs picked up a win each. Series Two of the hummel F-League moves to Sydney’s Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre on June 23-24.
