Adelaide United have notched up a third win of the season, downing Newcastle Jets 1-0 at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.
It was not until after half time that United broke the deadlock through Marcelo Carrusca. Tarek Elrich burst into the box and was fouled by Nigel Boogaard.
The Argentinean, who was omitted from Adelaide’s Asian Champions League squad during the week, capped off a brilliant performance with a composed spot kick to win the fiery contest.
The game was fraught with heated moments and United were praised for a more passionate display.
