A-League Scoreboard - Round 3
Central Coast's early-season dominance continued on Thursday night
when the Mariners recorded a 1-0 away victory over Queensland Roar.
The goal came early in the second half, after a corner found its way to
Adam Kwasnik, who booted home the winner. The Roar pressed hard
for an equaliser, but stand-in Mariners goalkeeper Matthew Trott was
magnificent in denying the home side. The Mariners, with 3 wins, remain
with a commanding lead over the rest of the pack.
Queensland Roar 0 Central Coast Mariners 1 (A Kwasnik 55).
Referee - M Shield. Crowd - 8,815 at Suncorp Stadium.

The grand final replay between Adelaide and Melbourne at Hindmarsh
Stadium was sadly overshadowed by the behaviour of the travelling
Victory fans, who detonated flares and a firework before being evicted
en masse. It's a worrying sign for the A-League, and for the Victory fans
who have been in trouble for such antics before. On the field, the
Victory hit the lead in the 80th minute when Rodrigo Vargas scored
with a header, but just minutes later the hero became the villain when
Vargas was pulled up for a handball inside the box; and Travis Dodd
slotted home the penalty to secure a 1-1 draw.
Adelaide United 1 (T Dodd 83pen) Melbourne Victory 1 (R Vargas
80).
Referee - P Green. Crowd - 12,231 at Hindmarsh Stadium.

Newcastle Jets became the first side other than the Mariners to win a
game when they defeated Wellington Phoenix 1-0 on Sunday. The
Phoenix had the bulk of possession in the first half but were unable to
penetrate the Novacastrian defence, which would come back to haunt
them in the 77th minute when a free from Matthew Thompson
deflected off the wall and past the outstretched arms of Phoenix
keeper Glenn Moss into the net. The win propelled the Jets into second
place on the ladder, while the Phoenix with just one point remain on
the bottom.
Wellington Phoenix 0 Newcastle Jets 1 (M Thompson 77).
Referee - P O'Leary. Crowd - 11,478 at Westpac Stadium.

Another game, another scoreless draw for Perth Glory. This time the deadlock remained unbroken
against Sydney FC; the Glory having not scored or conceded a goal after three games this season. In
a lacklustre game in which few chances were created for either team, much interest was on the
number of players from both sides unavailable due to Socceroos or Olyroos commitments as well as
rising injury tolls. The lack of attacking power is already being felt at the box office, with the
weekend's total crowds for the A-League season averaging under 10,000.
Perth Glory 0 Sydney FC 0.
