The Roundup – Week 27

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 the Jets vital home win on Friday against Adelaide, Victory’s big win in Wellington, the Mariners impressive 2-0 victory over the Roar, the Wanderers come-from-behind triumph to seal 2nd spot, and Sydney’s win over Perth to officially end Newcastle’s finals chances:

Griffiths, Taggart give Jets a glimmer of finals hope

What promised to be an entertaining match of football at Hunter Stadium was ultimately a disappointing display from Adelaide, which gifted Newcastle a 2-0 win despite conceding close to 70% of possession.

Clinical Victory run riot in Wellington

Melbourne Victory staked their claim for second spot on the A-League ladder with a thumping 4-1 win over a poor Phoenix outfit on Saturday night.

There was plenty of drama and controversy in Harry Kewell’s last game as a professional footballer, as Melbourne Heart failed to hold on against Western Sydney Wanderers.

Determined Mariners suffocate Roar

The Central Coast Mariners secured third spot and a home final after defeating Brisbane Roar 2-0 at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

Sydney FC secure final playoff spot

Sydney FC had what it took today, defeating Perth Glory 2-1 at Allianz Stadium in their final home and away game of the season, and securing the last remaining finals spot.
