SAASL Division 3 Round 3

Adelaide University Black 1-3 PAC

Goal: Miro Vujica

 

It was a still day at the usually windy West Beach home ground.

The Blacks had the first chance of the match as Miro Vujica played a one-two with Mitch Coleman who swung in a cross, but it was just out of reach for Luke Urban.

A missed Blacks header gave the ball to a PAC player who drilled the ball across from the right to find their striker who made it 1-0 at 11 minutes.

At 15 minutes, the Blacks took a blow to their chances of victory as a PAC player landed awkwardly on Yi Lu after a header, injuring his ankle.

Lu was replaced by Michael Zavos.

Five minutes later, a PAC defender sent a long pass to their striker and the ball bounced around in the box before ‘keeper Jacob Davey was forced to make a close-range save.

At 24 minutes, PAC took a shot, Davey parried and reclaimed the ball, but the PAC striker came through to get the rebound and made nasty contact with the Blacks ‘keeper in a late challenge.

The PAC player was penalised for his late challenge with a yellow card.

At 28 minutes, Tom Macura was hacked down on a potentially dangerous Blacks counter-attack.

In the next attack, striker Vujica was trying dribble through in the box but was surrounded he and was arguably brought down by a trailing PAC leg, but the referee said no.

Just before half-time, Vujica received the ball, barged his way through the box and scored to draw the match even.

The half ended all-square.

In the second half, a PAC defender received a yellow for cumulative fouls.
