The Roundup – Week 24

video3Each week, we collect all the highlights and match reports from the previous weekend’s A-League matches and feature them right here on Ultimate A-League – it’s called the Weekly Roundup.

This week, the highlights cover Engelaar’s half-field stunner in the Mariners’ come-from-behind win, the Wanderers seeing off the Glory, Adelaide’s quality outing against Sydney, the Jets demolition of the Phoenix, and the Roar clinching the premiers plate with a last gasp win over the Victory,

Adelaide cruise past Sydney at home

Adelaide United eased their way past Sydney FC at Coopers Stadium on Friday night, in front of an impressive 14,212 fans. Goals from Fabio Ferreira, Sergio Cirio, and Bruce Djite saw a comfortable 3-1 win, further highlighting Adelaide’s positive run of form coming into the closing stages of the season.

Phoenix burnt by red-hot Jets

Newcastle Jets emphatically jumped inside the top 6, and put all other finals contenders on notice, with a 5-0 demolition of the Wellington Phoenix on Saturday night.

Brattan bullet brings Brisbane the plate

Late heroics from Luke Brattan saw Brisbane Roar clinch the premiership for the 2013/14 season in front of 17,965 at Suncorp Stadium.

Mariners prevail after Engelaar stunner

A moment of brilliance from Orlando Engelaar was not enough for Melbourne Heart, as they succumbed 2-1 at home to the Central Coast Mariners courtesy of second-half substitute Bernie Ibini’s 76th-minute strike.

Wanderers see off lacklustre Glory

Another poor performance from Perth Glory gifted the Wanderers an easy victory at Pirtek Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Jerome Polenz scored for the Wanderers after 41 minutes, before two second half goals by Bridge and Juric saw the Wanderers move to second on the A-League table.
