Negus (60’) Callisto (78’)
The rampant City showed their form in the PS4 NPL NSW could be transferred to the Cup as the league leaders dominated the opening 45 minutes against their South Australian opponents. But they were in for a second half surprise.
After a number of chances in the first 45, former Sydney FC striker Mitch Malia got on the burst down the right and his low ball into the box was swept home by Patrick Antelmi to open the scoring.
It was 1-0 to the home side at half-time against a MetroStars side clearly missing key striker Perry Mitris.
But the SA club came out and hit back quickly, and after dominating the opening 10 minutes it was Jonathan Negus who got his head onto a perfect cross to power home the equaliser.
And in a game of two halves, Rocky Callisto bundled home the second to give MetroStars the advantage with 15 minutes to go.
City looked shell-shocked. MetroStars sensed a famous win on the road.
And the reigning national PS4 NPL champions saw it through for a fantastic win for the Klemzig club.
