Five star Glory outclass Reds to jump into top four

Adelaide United 0 Perth Glory 5

Perth Glory FC has put on an attacking master-class performance in the City of Churches, to defeat defending champions Adelaide United 5-0 at Coopers Stadium tonight.

The scoring opened in bizarre circumstances just 15 minutes into the match. Chris Harold’s floated cross found Reds defender Iacopo La Rocca unmarked at the back post, who miscued his headed clearance and put the ball past his keeper and into the back of the net.

Glory’s Spanish marquee Diego Castro doubled Perth Glory’s lead 22 minutes later with a classy move. His quick feet were too much for the Adelaide defence, cutting inside and slamming his strike past Reds ‘keeper John Hall into the bottom far corner.

Glory evenutally pulled away 5-0 to record its biggest win over Adelaide in Hyundai A-League history (matching its NSL record dating back to 2003-04) and at the same time jumped into the top four with eight games remaining in the season.
