A-League Round 5 – Brisbane Roar v Melbourne City

An early goal in the 11th minute from Brisbane Roar striker Jamie MacLaren provided the Roar with a third consecutive win as they defeated Melbourne City 1-0 at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Both sides started well, however the hosts took an early lead as MacLaren pounced on a loose ball after Tommy Oar rounded City keeper Bouzanis to net his second goal so far this season.

City enjoyed large spells of possession, however it was the Roar that looked to score again on the counter with Jamie MacLaren missing several chances to seal the win.

W-League Round 1 – Brisbane Roar v Sydney FC

The opening match of the 2016 Westfield W-League season occurred today at Spencer Park in Newmarket, the home of NPL Queensland side Brisbane City. The weather was incredibly hot, however there was a good crowd in attendance who were considerably vocal in support of their side.

Despite a tense and goalless first half, Matilda Caitlin Foord opening the scoring for Sydney FC 8 minutes into the second half. The excitement was short lived however, as Brisbane Roar’s coach Mel Andreatta pulled the trigger and replaced Sunny Franco with new signing from Olympic FC in Queenslands’ NPL competition Allira Toby, who scored just three minutes after being handed her Brisbane Roar debut with an amazing header that stunned the Sydney players.

Katrina Gorry also scored 11 minutes later for the Roar, before Caitlin Foord was given her marching orders after receiving two red cards in the second half.

Brisbane Roar managed to fight off a late attempt at levelling the score by Sydney FC, and walked away with a hard fought victory to start their 2016 W-League campaign.

A-League Round 4 – Brisbane Roar v Perth Glory

 

 

Sunday afternoon at Suncorp Stadium was the setting for the Hyundai A-League Round 4 match between Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory, which saw Brisbane end Perth’s unbeaten run this season with a 75th minute winner from Brandon Borello. The Roar looked a much better side than the first three matches this season, playing more creatively and their hunger to score goals showed. There was a minutes silence before the game after this weeks tragedy at Dreamworld, and after a bus driver passed away, and after the match the annual Whole of Club photo took place, where the fans had an opportunity to enter the field and be with their players.

I had a great night, and can’t wait to see the boys play Melbourne City on Friday night!
