DIEGO CASTRO (GLORY V WANDERERS)

BLAKE POWELL (MARINERS V ROAR)

Receiving the ball in the box from youngster Lachlan Wales, Powell skilfully skips around the outside of Jack Hingert with a stepover before fizzing a fine left-footed finish across keeper Jamie Young.

NIKOLAI TOPOR-STANLEY (JETS V CITY)

Great skill from Patricio Rodriguez to twist past his defender before floating a ball into the box which Topor-Stanley expertly heads beyond the stranded Dean Bouzanis.
