Weekend wrap from around the National Premier Leagues

It was another massive weekend in the National Premier Leagues with some cracking action right around the country.

Here's a snapshot of the results from the weekend's action.


Blacktown City have broken away as the sole leaders of the competition following an impressive win against APIA Leichhardt Tigers on Friday.

Mark Crittenden’s side remain the only undefeated side in the competition after Wollongong Wolves suffered a comprehensive loss to Sutherland Sharks in Saturday’s early game.

However, Rockdale’s unbelievable comeback from 3-0 down to pip Bonnyrigg White Eagles 4-3 stands out as the result of the round.

It was also a big weekend for Sydney United who gave Jason Culina his first home win since taking over as coach with victory against Sydney FC in an eight goal thriller.


Normal service was resumed at the top of the National Premier Leagues WA table on the weekend with leaders Bayswater City returning to winning ways.

Coming off their first loss of the season, Chris Coyne's reigning champions made no mistake as goals from Gian Albano and Luke Salmon gave them a 2-0 home win over Armadale.

Albano struck just before half-time but it was the contribution of teenage substitute Salmon that stood out for Coyne.


Two goals from Carlo Armiento has helped Adelaide United Youth pull off a massive scalp following a 3-0 win over high-flying Campbelltown City at Smith Partners Stadium on Easter Monday.

Charlie Devereux opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time before substitute Armiento bagged a late brace to claim a huge three points for Paul Pezos’ men.

Adelaide City, MetroStars and West Adelaide also recorded impressive wins over the Easter weekend.


Charlestown maintained their lead at the top of the ladder thanks to a lone Ljubo Milicevic lob which condemned Lakes to their third loss of the season.

It was centre-back Milicevic’s first goal for over a year, his last came in a 5-1 win for Dandenong City against Nunawading City back in March last year.

On the other side of half-time, Charlestown made the breakthrough via Milicevic.

He received the ball just outside the area in the aftermath of a corner, and a ball which looked to be sent back into the mixer somehow found its way in and put the Blues ahead.
