Brisbane beats Wellington 3-2 in A-League
BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Jean Carlos Solorzano scored in the 92nd minute to give Brisbane a 3-2 win over Wellington Monday in Australian football’s A-League.
Solorzano, who faces competition for his position from newly-arrived Serbian striker Andrija Kaluderovic, had the final say in a see-saw match, scoring the goal that ended Wellington’s seven-match unbeaten streak.
After a scoreless first half, Fiji striker Roy Krishna put Wellington ahead with his sixth goal of the season. Brisbane midfielder Thomas Broich then played a key role in goals by James Donachie and Brandon Borello which put Brisbane ahead 2-1 after 76 minutes.
Costa Rica’s Kenny Cunningham equalized for Wellington in the 81st minute before Solozarno snatched the injury-time winner, volleying a cross from Jerome Polenz.
