Australian Football: Roar go out on a high

Brisbane Roar wrapped up a disappointing 2021/22 A-League season by going out on a high with a 3-1 victory over Sydney FC on Tuesday night.

It has been a season to forget for Roar as they have struggled for results and finish second from bottom with only Perth Glory below them.

Roar come from behind

Roar had not won in six games and had not picked up a victory in eight of the previous meetings with Sydney, but they defied the odds to pick up the win at Moreton Daily Stadium.

Alex Parsons, Juan Lescano and Luke Ivanovic got the goals for Warren Moon’s men as they came from behind to take all three points. Max Burgess had put the visitors ahead on 30 minutes but Roar showed great spirit when fighting back.

Moon accepts it has been a tough season for everyone involved with the club but was pleased to finish the campaign on a high.

"Great way to sign off at home for what's been a really tough year," Moon told reporters. "It's nice to obviously end on that note.

"We took some chances tonight which was good and goes to show with this team with the chances we can really create what we can do when we actually take them."

Corica rues missed chances

Sydney boss Steve Corica says his players are exhausted after just returning from the Asian Champions League but was not impressed with the way they missed a host of chances.

"They obviously need a massive rest but it's been the whole story of the season. We're not taking our chances and obviously starting to concede goals as well, which is not a good recipe."
