A-League Review: Perth Glory wins in Goal Fest

0
A large number of good results this round, including an interesting match in Brisbane, with two disappointing defensive errors gifting a win to a deserving Perth Glory. Central Coast won the first ever Battle of the Coasts, in magnificent fashion. Sydney FC won by a narrow margin, but that seems to be a trend for the Sky Blues. Melbourne defeated Adelaide away, but still look disappointing, and will probably not defend their title this season. Despite their valiant efforts, North Queensland were unable to lift themselves off the bottom of the table.
