Driving rain in Wellington made conditions difficult and reduced the crowd for the Phoenix'
match against Melbourne Victory. In a high-scoring contest, the Victory got out to a 3-1
lead shortly after half-time and looked to be cruising to an easy win, but that was turned on
its head after Shane Smeltz was awarded a penalty on 65 minutes. The penalty was
converted and suddenly there was life back in the contest. But hopes of a comeback were
to be short-lived, as just 3 minutes later the referee again pointed to the penalty spot but
this time at the other end of the ground. Kevin Muscat made no mistake, and the match
finished 4-2 to the Victory.

Adelaide got off to a flying start against Queensland Roar when Travis Dodd was awarded a
penalty after just 8 minutes. The Reds had the better of the first half, creating chance after
chance but were unable to increase the 1-0 advantage.
But the game was to undergo a major twist in the tale immediately after the break, when
Charlie Miller found the Adelaide net to tie up the scores. Now it was the Roar with the
momentum, and with the crowd behind them looked for the winner. But it was not to
come, and 1-1 would be how the match finished.

Another season, but the same old heartbreak for Perth Glory as
an equaliser by Jade North in the 5th minute of injury time
robbed the WA team of 3 points in their clash against defending
champions Newcastle Jets at Members Equity Stadium.
In a high-scoring and entertaining clash, the Glory twice came
from behind to equalise; and when Nikita Rukavytsya on the run
smashed the ball into the Newcastle net in the 81st minute, the
long-suffering Glory faithful hoped to dream of an upset.
Earlier, Joel Griffiths and Adrian Trinidad exchanged first-half
penalties; and an own-goal by Jamie Coyne was cancelled out by
a cross from Ameral that found Eugene Dadi for a spectacular
effort just before the hour. The Glory were on song, and
Rukavytsya's 40 metre run before beating the outstretched arms
of Covic looked set for the first shock of the season before
North's last-second intervention.
Perth Glory 3 (A Trinidad 35pen, E Dadi 58, N Rukavytsya 81)
Newcastle Jets 3 (J Griffiths 20pen, J Coyne 48og, J North 90)

It didn't quite have the tension and drama of the classic 5-4
encounter last season, but the Central Coast v Sydney FC match
started at breakneck speed, with Steve Corica having scored
twice for the visitors and Sasho Petrovski's penalty getting the
Mariners on the board before the match was even 15 minutes
old.
The action continued into the second half, as the yellow cards
continued to accumulate. On 66 minutes, Petrovski headed
home an equaliser to level the scores at 2-2; and 3 minutes later
Stuart Musialik's second yellow card saw him being banished from
the field and condemning Sydney to playing out the end of the
match with 10 men.
The Mariners pressed, but could find no winner. And on 81
minutes, against the run of play, second-gamer Shannon Cole
took a free from just outside the box. His shot sailed over the
wall into the corner of the net, giving Sydney FC a 3-2 lead. And
although the Mariners looked again for an equaliser, it was not to
come.
Central Coast Mariners 2 (S Petrovski 13pen, 66)
