Thursday April 25th
Roar v Reds
This game was almost a repeat of the game earlier this season that ended up being 4-3 in favour of the Reds. The Reds were forced to fight back from being 3-2 down in the second half. Remarkably the Reds were victorious 5-3. There were 8 different goal scorers of 26 outfield players that took the field. The Reds showed resilience to win the game, but would be concerned with the fact that they conceded 3 goals.

Wanderers v Victory
It wasn’t to bad a performance by the Wanderers despite the fact that they lost the game by 1 goal to nil; they lost courtesy of a world class header from Victory’s Sweedish import Ola Toivonen. The game was indicative of the Wanderers season; they could have got something out of the game, but they didn’t.

Glory v Phoenix
The Phoenix made plenty of changes to their team, while the Glory played just about their best 11; the result reflected that with the Glory cruising to a 5-nil win. Phoenix did expose 17 year old Ben Waine to first team football and the youngster was a shining light for the Phoenix.
