Sydney FC 5-1 Brisbane Roar
Adam Le Fondre scored his first Hyundai A-League hat-trick as the Sky Blues ran riot in Kogarah.

Adelaide United 2-1 Newcastle Jets
James Troisi’s late solo effort snatched three points for Adelaide as Newcastle Jets were left to rue missed chances in stifling conditions at Coopers Stadium.
