The opening game of round eight saw a relegation threatened Brunswick take on league leaders Fitzroy. It was the Champions who struck first through a Cosimo Russo rocket from a side ball to give his side the lead. Brunswick drew level from a side ball of their own as Simone Pelletti’s effort took a deflection on its way in to tie the game at one. Fitzroy restored their advantage through Yohei Karube as he got his first goal for the club to restore his sides lead, before a pair of Scott Rogan side balls found the net for a 4-1 lead to Fitzroy. On the half time buzzer Russo fired home his second of the game to have his side holding a 5-1 half time lead.

Brunswick came out of the half time huddle rejuvenated and pulled an early goal back through a header from Simone Pelletti who netted from a tight angle to keep his side in the contest, and soon after they were within two as Giovanny Garcia struck against his former side to have his current club back within two. Fitzroy steadied the ship though as Rogan found Karube at the back post who tapped home for his second of the evening. Rogan then found some space and toe poked home to complete his hat trick, before turning provider for Russo who also completed a hat trick of his own. Russo added a fourth from a tight angle to put the game to bed, but Brunswick weren’t going away and got another goal back through Jesse Papas to remain in with a slight chance. Fitzroy would finish on a high tho as Moe Matar got his first league goal for Fitzroy with a fantastic chip, before Elias Parthimos netted to seal a convincing win for the Tigers as they remain on top of the table.

Man of the match – Scott Rogan (Fitzroy FC)

REG – O.Ahmed & S.Ahmed

It was soon two as Felipe Bley pushed up the court and was afforded too much time as he toe poked home to have Pascoe leading 2-0 at the break.

Regent would need the opening goal of the second half to remain a shot but it didn’t go their way as Mauricio Novak found the net to have the Lions leading 3-0 and all but home and dry. Bley was caught out of goals and punished as Osman Ahmed finished from close range to keep his side in the contest. Shifa Ahmed then finished off a lovely move through the legs of Bley to have his side back within a goal. The comeback wasn’t to be though with Alisson Lima Da Rosa finding the net to seal an important win for Pascoe Vale.

The goals weren’t drying up with Ubeyde Cicek striking from a free kick, but again Kui Mu was on hand to restore the two goal advantage. Zenfouri beat his man down the line shortly after before putting it away to go into the half time break trailing by just one.

Early in the second half the Wolves were level as Hisham Neifaoui toe poked home and tied the game at five. Moreland would again take the lead as Cooper found Vaz to tap home at the back post, before Temel picked out the bottom corner to all but seal the win. A red card to the Wolves saw the Blues take full advantage with Temel tapping home, and left down a man for the rest of the game, Moreland punished their rivals as Temel struck again for a quick-fire hat trick before Vaz tapped home a hat trick of his own to blow the score out in what was a much tighter game than the scoreline showed.
