FA FUTSAL Super League leaders London Helvecia proved too strong for York City as they maintained their 100 per cent record this term.

The visitors, who boasted a plethora of international players, won 5-0 in front of the University of York Arena’s biggest crowd this season as just under 300 fans crammed into the venue.

Nevertheless, the hosts could have forged ahead in the first minute when Tom Blackburn broke clear through, but his shot was well saved.

Helvecia then took the lead on four minutes when a long-range shot was cruelly deflected past Martin Michels in the York goal.

The best chance of the first half for Junior Roberti’s men came when Daniel Pedras hit the crossbar with a fierce shot after a fine solo run.

But time and again, Michels saved York and, on 17 minutes, he somehow got across his goal to deny a Helvecia player from point-blank range and it took the away team until seconds before the interval to double their advantage with a well-taken breakaway goal.

In the second half, Robbie Bettson couldn’t beat the keeper from close range and Roly Donoso’s long-range shot also flew just wide.

Helvecia subsequently extended their lead courtesy of two goals within a minute from quick counter-attacking play.

Michels went on to make an amazing triple save, diving bravely at the forward’s feet, only for the final rebound to end up in the back of the net.

York’s captain Fabinho Almeida also saw an audaciously-chipped free kick go close before Helvecia rounded off the scoring.
