Para Hills Knights 2

Campbelltown City 5

Campbelltown City came from a goal down to beat Para Hills 5-2 in round two of the South Australia Playstation4 National Premier League on Monday night.

Kento Hara and Michael Matricciani bagged themselves a brace each in a game that was very much a repeat of the two sides’ first encounter of last season.

The contest was a classic example of the idiom, ‘a game of two halves,’ as Sherwin Emmanuel opened the scoring at The Paddocks for the home side inside the first fifteen minutes of the game, before a stretch of three goals in the space of ten minutes shortly after the half time interval put the game beyond doubt for the visitors.

MetroStars 1

Adelaide Comets 0

MetroStars recorded their first win of the season as they prevailed in a tightly fought 1-0 win over Adelaide Comets at TK Shutter Reserve in round 2 of the South Australian Playstation4 National Premier League.

The match started with both sides remaining cautious as they looked to find an early touch. Comets made the first chance of the match with Davide Zerillo finding Matthew Bouzalas whose shot just went over the bar.

The match came to life after MetroStars’ Matthew Deegan finished off a brilliant individual run on the edge of the box to score the decider. After some intuitive play from Micahel D’Aloisio, Deegan showed the defenders a clean pair of heels to give his side a crucial advantage.
