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.

Sydney Flip Gold Coast to Reach Fourth

Sydney FC 3 – Gold Coast United 2
Trailing 2-0 after 46 minutes, Sydney FC found a way to come from behind and defeat Gold Coast United 3-2 in front of 11,051 at the Sydney Football Stadium. Goals from Kristian Rees and Dylan Macallister had the visitors in a comfortable position, at least on the score line, just moments after half-time and were preparing to jump into fourth place on the ladder. Instead, a goal from Bruno Cazarine on the hour got the Sky Blues back into the game and an equalizer from Nicky Carle just three minutes later set the stage for the dramatic ending. Thirty minutes after the fourth goal of the game, Macallister was controversially whistled for a foul on Michael Beauchamp in the box late in injury time. Karol Kisel (pictured) converted the resulting penalty and Sydney took all three points. Gold Coast will surely have a complaint about the ending, though the comeback is quickly becoming a trend for Sydney, having taken points from each of their last three matches after initially trailing.
