Commentary

FULL TIME - A nervous second half for the Jets, who allowed the Roar back into the game, but in the end they were able to keep a clean sheet and record a 1-0 victory over the Roar. The Roar will be ruing the one that got away as this game was there for the taking for them.

81' Boogaard crosses it across the face of goal for Topor-Stanley, but he is unable to get to it to tap it into goal.
