A-League Round 7 My Review
There was some high quality football that was played in Round 7 of the A-League. There was a total of eleven goals scored in the five games that were played. Most of the games were entertaining with no scoreless draws and the standard of football of a descent level. If the football played remains at this level throughout the season then the league is in good stead.
Friday Night Game
Wanderers v Mariners
The game was highlighted by a stunning goal from Keanu Baccus of the Wanderers. Josh Sotirio also scored a quality goal to put the result beyond doubt and give the Wanderers a two goal buffer.
Wanderers Game Changer: Keanu Baccus
Mariners Game Changer: Ben Kennedy
Saturday Night Games
Sky Blues v Phoenix
This was probably the upset of the season so far with the Phoenix thoroughly deserving of their upset win. They controlled the game from start to finish with the Sky Blues struggling to get into the contest.
Sky Blues Game Changer: Michael Zullo
Pheonix Game Changer: Roy Krishna
Victory v Reds
The Reds failed to capitalise on their chances to score in this one and were punished for the lack of polish by a clinical Victory attack; the difference between the two teams was the finishing in the final third.
Victory Game Changer: Ola Toivonen
Reds Game Changer: Michael Jakobsen
Glory v City
This was probably the poorest game of the Round with neither side playing their best football. The Glory can consider themselves fortunate to have collected the three points on offer.
Glory Changer: Chris Iknomidis
City Game Changer: Bart Schenkeveld
Sunday Night Game
Jets v Roar
The Jets thoroughly deserved their victory over a fairly disappointing Roar outfit, with Avram Papadopolous a shining light for the Roar. The Jets played some scintillating football.
Jets Game Changer: Daniel Georgevski
Roar Game Changer: Avram Papadopolous
