PS4 NPL SA Round 7 Review

Adelaide Olympic have taken out their first derby of the season with a 3-2 win over West Adelaide in Round 7 of PlayStation 4 NPL South Australia.

West Adelaide v Adelaide Olympic

Jonathan Rideout put West Adelaide in a great position, with an early lead in the first half, which gave them the ascendency over Adelaide Olympic. Heading into the half time break, the hosts looked like the team in control of the match.

With a turn-around in the second half, Christos Pounendis, Fausto Erba and Tito Bontor all scored in the half to conduct a comeback from falling behind in the first 45 minutes, and gain a steady lead.

Da Silva scored a thunderbolt from a set piece late into the second period, but it proved only a consolation.

Cumberland United v Adelaide Comets

Adelaide Comets have continued their mercurial run atop the 2017 standings. The Cumberland United fighting spirit was well on show in their narrow 2-1 loss to league leader Adelaide Comets, in an entertaining Round 7 PlayStation 4 National Premier League encounter at A.A Bailey Reserve.

A first half brace by Comets’ mercurial marksman Andreas Wiens either side of Jace Cummins’ equaliser was enough to steal the points over a determined Cumberland who battled hard all day to stay in the contest.

Cumberland, with a good opening to the first half, courtesy of some good midfield work by the Skull brothers (Chris and Yannick) and Cummins, will rue the turnovers that the Comets forwards converted into goals when the game was in the balance.

The visitors, against the run of play, hit the score board in the 6th minute, when Valentino Yuel pounced on a loose ball and delivered a pin point cross into the six-yard box that found an unmarked Wiens, who slotted the ball past the diving Cumberland stopper Luke Schoen at close range.
