NFPL Matchweek 11 Preview
The National Futsal Premier League returns to the court and we get 5 teams in action on top of a Saturday night double-header! Should be an amazing weekend of futsal here, keep reading for all the details.
Joy Athletic (H) VS. Columbus Futsal (A)
Joy Athletic are the league's hottest team right now with a 6-game win streak, with many of those coming on the road in February. Columbus Futsal have begun to see the fruits of their labors, picking up a big win in Matchweek 9 in the Battle for Ohio.
The two teams last met in Matchweek 6 that resulted in a narrow come-from-behind victory for the boys from Minnesota, spoiling the Columbus home opener. Revenge will certainly be on their minds as Joy play a first home game in 6 weeks.
Futsal Indy (H) VS. Futsal Factory Academy (A)
Futsal Indy are the unfortunate holders of a 5-game losing streak, while Futsal Factory Academy have leaped up the table on the back of a 4-game win streak.
Matchweek 8 gave us a breathless, end-to-end matchup in Michigan between these two teams. On that day Futsal Factory Academy took 3 points at home after Futsal Indy let a 1-goal lead slip with less than a minute to play. This feels like a big road test for Futsal Factory and a huge opportunity to stop the skid for Futsal Indy.
Cadence SFC (H) VS. Columbus Futsal (A)
Cadence SFC will be hoping to take advantage of a tired Columbus Futsal squad as they will be making the trip down from Minnesota after playing Joy Athletic the prior night. Matchweek 11 will be a big chance for the Illinois-based futsal club to secure a first win in the NFPL.
For Columbus, two games in two days represents a test of their traveling team and the chance to go level on points with Ginga FS in 4th place if they lose in Grand Rapids.
Best of luck to all of the players and managers in Matchweek 11! Follow along and stay tuned on the National Futsal Premier League social media channels for game updates and more!
