Sydney FC crashed to the bottom of the A-League table when they
suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat at the hands of competition
newcomers Wellington Phoenix. The home side looked good early when
Adam Casey struck home the opening goal with a long-range shot from
outside the box after just 6 minutes, but the Sydneysiders were still
celebrating when Wellington's Brazilian striker Felipe equalised. It got
worse for Sydney when Daniel went down in the box before the
half-hour mark and the referee pointed to the spot. The penalty was
slotted home, giving the Phoenix a 2-1 lead they were able to maintain
for the remainder of the match. It was a result to celebrate for the New
Zealand side, that sees them record their first ever victory; but will
prompt soul-searching for Sydney FC as their season threatens to unravel.

For much of Saturday night's Newcastle Jets v Adelaide United game,
the match looked set to finish in a scoreless draw as both sides struggled
to create opportunities. But that was to change with just 9 minutes left
on the clock when Matthew Bridge pounced on a corner to head home
the winner. It was the second win on the trot for the Jets, a result that
sees them narrow the gap on competition leaders Central Coast, raising
the prospects of northern NSW domination in the A-League season.

Central Coast dropped points for the first time this season when they
held reigning champions Melbourne Victory to a scoreless draw at Telstra
Dome on Sunday. After the Victory looked strong early, the Mariners
held them out magnificently and during the second half threatened to
spring the upset result; and it was only a series of brilliant saves by
Victory keeper Michael Theoklitos that ensured the Melbourne side
would salvage a point from this match.

After starting the season with 3 scoreless draws, the first goal in a Perth Glory game would finally
came when Jamie Harnwell got on the scoreboard in the 14th minute. But the Glory jubilation was to
be short-lived, as Queensland Roar's Josh McCloughan equalised just minutes later and a late strike by
Matt McKay gave the visiting Queenslanders the points. The result pushes the Roar to third place on
the ladder, while condemning the Glory to 7th place.
