PS4 NPL SA Round 1 Review

Adelaide United caused a major upset in the opening round of the PlayStation 4 NPL South Australia 2016 Season, recording a maiden 2-0 win against last season’s Grand Finalist Adelaide Blue Eagles.

In warm conditions, Blue Eagles got off to a quick start creating the first goal scoring opportunity when Alemayo Kebede side heeled a pass to Jean-Glaude Boyokino whose shot on goal was blocked by a desperate Adelaide United defender in the opening minute of the game.

Blue Eagles continued to create chances early, but were thwarted by some good goal keeping by John Hall and resolute defending by the Adelaide United defence.
