What a win by the boys against the Brisbane Roar!

My Club Victory Player of the Match Rhys Williams opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a bullet header from a corner.

Before Brisbane could come up with an answer, Kosta Barbarouses scored only 7 minutes later!

Both goals were assisted by Victory’s new star recruit Leroy George.

Roar’s star striker Macarrone scored within 15 minutes of the second half, showing some fight from the Brisbane Roar.

There were plenty of chances in the second half for Victory to go further ahead, but some pretty impressive keeping from Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Jamie Young made sure Melbourne didn’t score a third.

Victory next play Melbourne City at AAMI Park on the 23rd of December! Kick off is at 7:50 pm. Let’s hope the boys in blue can give us an early Christmas present with a win!
