Great start for Brisbane 

Brisbane Roar really put the pressure on Adelaide United – at the 20-minute mark it looked as though it was going to be a complete whitewash, with the Roar already two goals up.

It was a shaky start for the South Australians, with Brisbane scoring the opener within four minutes of the starting whistle. A cut-back from Rylee Baisden found the feet of Indiah-Paige Riley, who tapped the ball into the net - her second goal of the season.

But the Roar weren’t finished there. A beautiful strike from Tameka Yallop skimmed off the edge of the cross bar in the 6th minute, and only moments later Hayley Raso added her name to the scoresheet after yet another assist from Rylee Baisden.  

Raso scored her brace towards the end of the match, side-footing the ball into the goal after beating the keeper. The goal made the score 3-2, winning the match for Brisbane. 

The Roar are starting to hit form and are beginning to fix their defensive issues too. They didn't take their foot off the pedal for the first 20 minutes, but they'll need to be able to continue with this momentum for the whole game if they want to break into the top four. 

They play Melbourne Victory in Round Six, where it’ll be important they pick up the three points if they want to climb further up the ladder.
