MetroStars Bounce Back With Win

NPL SA: Round 20 wrap (

West Torrens Birkalla visited the MetroStars for the late game on Saturday night. Knowing all the results of the day, the visitors were aware that a loss would condemn them to relegation to State League One for season 2023.

Despite Metro not looking like the best version of itself in recent weeks, it seemed to be a class above the visitors.

Marauding fullback Jackson Walls opened the scoring with a neat finish past the advancing Nick Harpas. Just under 15 minutes later, defender Tim Henderson got everyone on their feet when he audaciously finished a loose ball on the goal line with a scorpion kick.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. Metro youngster Ariath Piol once again showed composure beyond his years to take a calm touch into the box to put the final nail in the Birks season, that in fairness, never really felt like it took off.
