Kosmina Gets a Point in Adelaide Return


Sydney FC 2 – Adelaide United 2
John Kosmina could not get Adelaide United’s first win since Remembrance Day but did eke out a point against his former club, Sydney FC, in a 2-2 draw at the Sydney Football Stadium. Daniel Mullen got the opener for the visiting Reds, heading in a Dario Vidošić corner in the eighth minute, but was quickly equalized when Karol Kisel converted an eleventh minute penalty for the Sky Blues. Bruno Carazine earned the spot kick after a Nigel Boogaard challenge in the box. Carazine nearly gave the home side the lead early in the second half but for his header caroming off the post. Minutes later, Bruce Djite earned a penalty for Adelaide when he was taken down by Liam Reddy. Vidošić added a goal to his line on the score sheet in converting the penalty in the 55th minute for a 2-1 lead. From there, teenager Dimitri Petratos scored from a wonderful volley in the 66th minute to level the score once again. Iain Ramsay was sent off late in the game for the Reds but the visitors held on to take a point and given Kosmina a starting point in the rebuilding job for which he was hired. Sydney move into third with their point, now just one behind Brisbane Roar.

Brisbane Put Seven Past Adelaide


Brisbane Roar 7 – Adelaide United 1
Dario Vidošić got a fifth minute goal for Adelaide United to take a surprising lead against league leaders Brisbane Roar. By the 36th minute, Brisbane led 5-1. Henrique scored from the penalty spot in the 21st and 36th minutes while Besart Berisha, the already in-form Albanian striker, recorded a hat-trick in between. In fact, Berisha’s first three goals of the night came within just a six minute stretch, an A-League record, killing off the Reds and powering the Roar toward their thirty-second consecutive match without a loss. As if that first half barrage wasn’t enough, Brisbane got a fourth goal from Berisha in the 69th minute and substitute Issey Nakajima-Farran got his first goal of the season in the 80th. While Berisha was the acknowledged star of this particular match, it was Mitch Nichols who was the creative force for Brisbane, further solidifying his position as one of the top young Australian midfielders. Nichols could have equalled the A-League record for goals in a game but his 87th minute shot caromed off the post, denying the Roar an eighth. Not only do Brisbane stay top of the ladder, their goal difference makes a challenge from any club very difficult.

Here are the highlights.
