St. Peters (0) vs (3) Adelaide University

The Blacks went undefeated on Saturday as both the As and Bs were victorious against strong St. Peters teams, while the Cs held Cove to a draw away. It was good performances all round for Uni as Mike continued to bang in the goals with another 2 goal haul, with his brother Paul also chipping in with a second half strike. Rodney secured the goal that made the difference in a tight game in the Bs while Joe and Chris both got their names on the score sheet for the Cs.

The grounds at St. Peters are an undeniably nice place to be and the pitch looked flat with true bounce when the As kicked off at just after 3pm. St. Peters start brightly and have Uni pegged back in their own half for the first 10 minutes. In the Blacks first real foray into their attacking third, a neat 1-2 sees Olly Gissing through down the right but the cross/shot sails over the bar. Into the 15′ minute now and Ryan manages to win a cross after a through ball from Robbie sent him down the right flank. The cross comes in to the back post and Tim meets it to send the ball back across goal, Rob manages to get up and head on target but the keeper gathers comfortably. St. Peters have the better of possession as the half wears on but the Uni defense is as tight as a drum with Sam making a couple of important clearances. Andy is forced into a good save after a St. Peters attacker turns well on the edge of the area and hits a low shot on target. 30 minutes gone now and the Blacks are being forced to play on the counter. The Uni win a throw and Russ whips it into the box. The flick on header sends the ball into the St. Peters box where a scrap ensues. There’s a call of handball against the St. Peters defender as the ball bobbles around but before the ref can make a call, Mike shoots home to make it 1-0 Uni. It’s more of the same after the goal with St. Peters continuing to rain in crosses, long throws and shots from distance but they’re unable to carve out clear cut chances. A challenge on Paul sees the referee brandish a yellow card toward the St. Peters
