Adelaide starts with win
Adelaide United was the only team to win as the Hyundai A-League entered its fourth season.
In a round where only five goals were scored, Adelaide's one goal was enough to give them three points and catapult them to the top of the A-League ladder.
The first round of the 2008/9 season nearly became only the second round when all matches are drawn but Perth Glory failed to square the scores and hence now prop the ladder.
This was the fifth lowest scoring regular season round with four other rounds having seen just four goals.
The lowest number of goals scored in an regular A-League season is 4 with the highest being 17.
