Adelaide City 1

Adelaide Blue Eagles 4

Striker Kym Harris bagged himself a double as Adelaide Blue Eagles brushed aside Adelaide City at City Park on Friday night in Round 1 of the PlayStation4 National Premier League.

Blue Eagles captain Chris Annicchiarico was happy to walk away with the three points, but says that the side are now focused on this week’s encounter with Modbury Jets.

“It was a pretty even game for the majority of the ninety minutes. We had the better of it and created some good chances and we took our opportunities, but we played well on the whole and it was a competitive battle,” Annicchiarico said.

“To City’s credit they were pressing pretty hard for the equalizer, but I was happy with the boys’ response to the goal.”

Para Hills started the night with numerous attempts at hitting the back of the net but it was Adelaide Comets who opened the scoring 30minutes into the game.

Comets coach Jim Karatzas was pleased with the first win of the season for his side.

"We haven't beaten Para Hills in over 3 years but the boys put in the effort and we deserved the win.

"Tonight's game was a very gutsy effort, last year we had a good run but lacked concentration."
