Roar claim third A-League title with 2-1 win over Wanderers

THE BRISBANE Roar has claimed its third A-League championship in four years to become the undisputed kings of the domestic competition.

The Roar managed to come from behind on Sunday night to beat Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 in a thriller at Suncorp Stadium.

Fox Sport reports, Matthew Spiranovic found the back of the next for the visitors in the second-half and the Wanderers looked certain to take home the trophy with just four minutes to go.


But departing Brisbane star striker Besart Berisha had other ideas…

He got his head to an 86th-minute Thomas Broich free-kick to equalise and send most of the 51,000-plus fans into a state of delirium.

The goal ensured extra time, with the Roar finishing the job via super-sub Henrique, who thrashed a shot past Ante Covic in the 108th-minute.

It leaves the Wanderers with the unwanted ‘bridesmaids’ tag, after finishing runners-up for the second-straight year.
