The only other result of the night was a six-goal thriller between Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar, with the teams sharing the spoils in a 3-3 draw.

Six goals were also scored as Wellington beat Sydney FC 4-2; four went in at AAMI Park as Adelaide bagged an away win at Melbourne Heart; the Jets beat Gold Coast 3-2 and the Mariners heaped more misery on Melbourne, beating Victory 2-0.
