Roar made the early charge with multiple scoring opportunities, a stark contrast to their first four games.

English marquee Charlie Austin needed only six minutes to add his team’s first home goal for the season, Roar going ahead 1-0 in a vibrant start.

A penalty for Joe Knowles gave Jay O’Shea an opportunity from outside the box, but his strike deflected off both the crossbar and Knowles to find Austin in front of an open goal.

Roar could do absolutely no wrong as they added their second goal in the 11th minute to pile on the pain for Sydney FC.

Austin’s penalty conversion from inside the box was saved brilliantly by Sydney’s goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne, only for him to save another attempt from Nikola Mileusnic.

But Redmayne couldn’t make it third time lucky as Carlo Armiento’s strong left boot made it 2-0 to the home side within just 12 minutes of play.

New Roar goalkeeper Macklin Freke showed his talent with a stunning save that prevented Sydney’s Rhyan Grant from a deft header, continuing the action-packed contest.

With only seven minutes in the half remaining, the Sky Blues capitalised on their gradually gained possession and corner advantage when Anthony Caceres put his ball just over the goal line despite Tom Aldred’s best efforts.

Despite trailing 2-1 at the main break, Sydney FC were clearly ahead in general play towards the back end of the entertaining opening stanza.

Jack Hingert left the pitch early in the second half with a suspected hamstring injury amidst a host of substitutions from both teams after the interval.

Amidst Robert Mak’s two missed opportunities to equalise for Sydney, Brisbane’s Joe Knowles produced an incredibly audacious bicycle-kick attempt as both teams probed in attack.

Caceres almost made it a double with a clever header that was just offline in the 65th minute.

Brisbane produced a hammer blow against Sydney FC’s thrust when Josh Brindell-South absolutely flushed a blow from well outside the box that even had coach Warren Moon pumping his fist.

The Roar went up 3-1 in the 72nd minute courtesy of both Brindell-South’s pure strike and their ability to thwart Sydney FC’s attack inside the penalty area.

Brisbane’s fortunes were only bettered after Sydney FC were diminished a player when Paul Retre was red-carded for a foul on Riku Danzaki with only 10 minutes to play.

With the first win of their season under the belt, Roar will have a month’s break for the World Cup while Sydney FC will face Western Sydney Wanderers before their hiatus.
