Brisbane Roars to biggest ever win


I’ll get to the record breaking element of this in a moment, but today down at the Ais athletics track in Canberra, the Brisbane Roar NYL side ran out 11-2 victors over the academy side. It should be pointed out that the Ais kids are all around 15-16 years old whereas the A-League youth sides are typically around 18/19/20 years old. But Brisbane had 3 different players rack up hat-tricks: new signing Anthony Proia got the party started with his 3 coming in the 1st half (he was subbed at h-t)

In an ironic twist of fate Proia’s replacement Matt Thurtell would come on and bag a hat trick of his own, culminating in the 11th and final goal in injury time. 1st team contracted player Issey Nakajima-Farran also bagged a hat-trick. Kofi Danning and James Geria rounded out the scoring. Now, onto the record breaking part of this:


The follow records were all broken today:


–          Biggest ever victory over Ais (Previous best was a 4-1 win in Canberra last season)

–          Biggest ever Brisbane win in the NYL (Previous best was a 5-1 thumping of Glory in the 1st season.

–          Biggest win in NYL history (Previous best was Central Coast thrashing local rivals Newcastle 6-0 away from home in season 2)

–          Biggest ever win in Brisbane Roar history (including A-League, NYL, W-League and pre-season) (Previous best was an 8-1 victory over Easts in 2008, and 7-1 over Adelaide in the A-League)


Brisbane Roar FC 11: Proia (14′, 33’, 42’), Nakajima- Farran (16′, 48’, 54’), Danning (24′-pen), (Thurtell 51′, 79 ‘, 92’), Geria (85’)
