NSW Lightning and Queensland National Champions

NSW Lightning were crowned men’s open champions at the FFA Futsal National Championships after an epic 4-2 Grand Final win over the ACT Cobras whilst Queensland claimed the women’s open title with a 3-1 victory over a more experienced ACT Cobras outfit at the AIS Arena.

The Lightning came from 1-0 down to complete a memorable end to the competition that threatened to derail them halfway through when they suffered three losses in quick succession. Rhys Giovanali was named man of the match after a performance full of guile and energy that left the ACT Cobras floundering in his wake.

In the women’s competition the Queensland youngsters played with a style and elegance that belied their tender years to wear down an older Cobras team.
