Amateurs Round Up: MetroStars 4-3 Para Hills United


It took a 90th minute goal to give MetroStars their first win in the South Australian Amateur Soccer League last weekend.

MetroStars welcomed Division 3 side Para Hills United to T.K. Shutter Reserve and it was an entertaining.

Metro opened the scoring quickly with Jackson Livori popping up for his second goal of the season. Para Hills replied with 2 goals in 2 minutes as they capitalised on some poor defending to go into the half time break ahead.

A Callum Jayne free kick leveled the score on 70 minutes. Para Hills were awarded a penalty kick which was successfully converted to put the visitors ahead once again. Jayne was involved again as MetroStars equalised again through an exquisite outside of the foot finish from Samuel Livori.

Metro were rewarded for their great spirit in the 90th minute when goalkeeper Jamie Sumpter could only parry Callum Jayne's free kick into the path of Will Skelly who made no mistake from close range. This goal helped to seal a historic first win for MetroStars in SAASL competition.

It was a game of two halves in the Reserves as both sides had to settle for a point.

MetroStars opened the scoring early with Anton Faranda getting his first goal of the season. The home side had the majority of the play in the first half and perhaps should have added to the lead.

Para Hills came out strong in the second half, forcing Adam Knobben into several saves and once even being saved by the post. The equaliser for Para Hills came 10 minutes from time and
