Henrique scores winner for Brisbane over Sydney in A-League
SYDNEY (AP) — Brisbane’s Henrique scored the winning goal in the 88th minute Saturday in a 3-2 victory over Sydney FC to move the Roar into first place in the A-League, two points ahead of Western Sydney with two rounds to play in the regular season.
Filip Holosko’s second goal of the game for Sydney pulled the visitors level a minute ahead of Henrique’s winner.
The result left only four points separating the top five teams.
Earlier Saturday, Andy Keogh scored an 88th-minute penalty — his seventh goal in seven matches to tie an A-League record — as the Perth Glory beat the Newcastle Jets 2-1.
Perth is level in fourth place with Adelaide on 40 points. The Glory are nine points ahead of seventh-place Sydney, with the top six teams making the finals series.
On Sunday, Adelaide plays Central Coast. On Monday, third-place Melbourne City plays Wellington to close out the 25th round.
