A high scoring game with another refereeing shocker the decider. Sterjovski's hand ball before his goal being totally overlooked by Shields and linesman. Not much between the teams, except Spirit can't turn possession into a win, and Power know how to attack. There goes the top 6!

In a very wet Canberra 4-500 away fans saw the young team battle and slide back to win a game that had to be won. It was almost lost through early injuries (Slater & Enes), a resugent Cosmos after the break, and poor finishing. The late fightback was great. Well done all - players and fans!

The luck was with Spirit but they also turned in a gutsy performance with Slater back, Moss, Sobzyk, Rudan, Enes at the back. Great strikes by Marconi. esp. Renaud hit the post from 45m, and Perosh made some miraculous saves.
