Barossa United’s reserves hosted a home game against Unley United which they lost 5-0. Barossa took a minute to find their feet on the new surface.
The two sides enjoyed end-to-end football with forward Adam Zanlorenzi and midfielder Daniel Wilsdon both getting shots away then 30 minutes into the first half Barossa United conceded a corner which Unley converted with a header to lead 1-0 at half time.
The second half is where the cracks began to appear for a thinly stretched Barossa side.
The home team held on for another 25 minutes before the floodgates opened. Splitting through balls had Barossa’s defence sprinting to cover but the legs couldn't last.
Unley’s second goal came in the form of a through ball and the third and fourth goals came from a failure to close down just outside the box. A fifth goal came from a howler of a backpass. Despite shifting the ball around well all game the Barossa couldn't reduce the deficit. Best players were D Wilsdon, A Walker, A Zanlorenzi.
