A feast of NPL football takes place at Oakden on Saturday afternoon as both Men's and Women's NPL matches form a doubleheader.
In the Men's match, both sides have shown early signs of promise as the season starts to stretch its legs.

Comets narrowly overcame a struggling Cumberland United last weekend 1-0. Barney Smith's side have only scored twice in their opening games this season but their two clean sheets make them hard to beat.

MetroStars vs Adelaide Blue Eagles
Venue: TK Shutter Reserve

Words by Jason Cavey (@JasonKVOfficial)
MetroStars head into this match after a frustrating 1-1 draw at home to Adelaide City. An even first half ended with a Marcos Flores header giving the visitors the lead, although the hosts can count themselves as unfortunate to not have the goal ruled offside. The introduction of Cooper O'Donnell off the bench sparked renewed energy for Metro with the youngster setting up Christian Esposito for a well-deserved equaliser. Both sides had chances to win it, however, Isaac Carmody was required to pull off a great last-ditch save in the last minute.
Meanwhile, Adelaide Blue Eagles are coming off a 1-0 loss at home to Raiders on Monday night. The hosts were awarded a penalty in the 12th minute however Evan Kounavelis spot-kick was saved by Nick Munro. English striker Alun Webb gave Raiders in the 30th minute, beating 3 defenders and rifling his shot past Richard Goss. This was enough for Raiders to earn a victory and all three points.
Tom Strain and Anthony Solagna are back in contention this week following their injuries which will be a huge boost to Rob Saraceno's side.

Olympic welcomes a confident Adelaide United side to VALO Football Centre on Saturday night.
With no home advantage for either side and confidence high on all counts, expect a fast-paced matchup here.
Olympic scored late at The Paddocks to secure a 1-0 win last week, while Adelaide United came back from a two-goal first-half deficit to grab a point. Mohamed Toure pulled the Young Reds back into the match with a thunderous strike.
