A devastating 7-minute burst was enough to give Melbourne
Victory a 3-0 win and keep the pressure on Adelaide for the
minor premiership and to be the first to qualify for the 2010
Asian Champions League.
A scoreless first half saw the Mariners create scoring opportunities
which they were unable to convert, while the Victory defended
resolutely. But the tide turned after the break, and it was the
Victory who were doing all the attacking. Archie Thompson had
a golden opportunity on the hour when he had the Mariners'
keeper beaten but the shot sailed over the crossbar.
But 8 minutes later, Thompson delivered a pinpoint cross to
Danny Allsopp and the Victory were finally on the board. 3
minutes later, a free kick to Carlos Hernandez sailed through the
wall, leaving Danny Vukovic unsighted and with no hope of
making the save. Thompson put the icing on the cake with 15
minutes to go, finding space before a perfectly-timed shot; and
the Victory were home.
Melbourne Victory 3 (D Allsopp 68, C Hernandez 71, A
Thompson 75).

Queensland Roar ensured they would be playing finals football for
the second straight season, and that Sydney FC would miss the
playoffs for the first time, when the Roar took out a 3-1 win at
Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.
It was a hat-trick from Sergio Van Dijk that made the difference.
The first on 15 minutes was quickly responded to as Sydney FC
teenager Kofi Danning headed the ball home, but just 3 minutes
later the Roar were back in front after Van Dijk leapt on a pass
from Craig Moore.
The Roar led 2-1 at the break, and although Sydney FC tried
hard in the second half, they never looked likely to grab an
equaliser. Their task was made harder in the final minutes after
Zach Cairncross received his marching orders, and the result was
wrapped up in injury time with a strike from just outside the area
by Van Dijk, to bring up the first hat-trick in the Roar's history.

Wellington Phoenix remain a mathematical chance of qualifying for the finals, while Adelaide's
grip on top spot is under threat, after the Phoenix held the Reds to a 1-1 draw on Sunday at
Westpac Stadium.
Adelaide got off to a flying start, forcing a corner in the opening minute before a free kick from
Scott Jamieson forced Phoenix keeper Glenn Moss into an acrobatic save. In just the 5th
minute, Travis Dodd found Paul Reid unmarked in the box and the Reds were on the
scoreboard.
But soon after, the Phoenix began to work their way back into the contest. On the half hour,
scores were levelled after some deft passes from Shane Smeltz and Leo Bertos found Carlos
Barbarouses who headed home his first A-League goal.
Adelaide, playing their 5th game in 5 days, were visibly tired in the second half and forced to
go on the defensive against a resurgent Wellington. But the Reds hung on, maintaining top
spot on the ladder by a single goal's goal difference.
Wellington Phoenix 1 (C Barbarouses 31)
Adelaide United 1 (P Reid 5).
Yellow Cards : Phoenix - J McKain 14, T Brown 28,51, L Bertos 35. Reds - S Jamieson 79, J

It's been a disappointing season for Newcastle, but the Jets farewelled their remaining fans in
style with a 2-1 win over Perth Glory in their final home game for the season.
Newcastle started the better, but it took until the shadows of half-time for the Jets to turn
their dominance into scoreboard pressure. It came when a corner from Kaz Patafta found
Antun Kovacic, who headed the ball home.
10 minutes after the break, David Tarka brought down Mark Milligan in the box. The referee
showed Tarka a yellow card for the challenge, but more importantly pointed to the spo; Mark
Milligan making no mistake with the penalty kick to double the lead.
The Glory got one back against the run of play when Wayne Srhoj outpaced his opponents
out wide before centreing to Scott Bulloch. But they never looked a chance for an equaliser,
and it was to be a rare moment of joy for the Jets as they recorded just their 4th win of the
season.
Newcastle Jets 2 (A Kovacic 41, M Milligan 55pen).
Perth Glory 1 (S Bulloch 65).
Yellow Cards : Jets - J Wheelhouse 59. Glory - D Tarka 54.
Referee - K Griffiths-Jones. Crowd - 6,665 at Energy Australia Stadium.
