Gold Coast beat Adelaide in clash of cellar dwellers

7:18 am on 17 December 2011

Last-placed Gold Coast United extended Adelaide United's miserable A-League football season with an upset 3-0 away triumph in South Australia.

The Gold Coast midfielder Ben Halloran scored one goal and set up the other, a memorable long-range Maceo Rigters strike, while Dylan Macallister iced the win in injury time.

The victory lifted Gold Coast within one point on of Adelaide, who remain anchored in ninth spot.
