With plenty of goals to talk about, the first competitive points round of the second season of the E-League did not disappoint as some new faces showed the rest of the league just what they are capable of.
Brisbane Roar 13-8 Western Sydney Wanderers
- Despite a strong first leg showing from the Brisbane players, the Western Sydney representatives fought back in their respective second legs.
Xbox: Andy “AKP0” Phanouvong 5-6 Joseph “N8 OhNoAGoat” Nassar
The first leg between Akp0 and OhNoAGoat was well and truly a game of two halves. 1-0 to Akp0 heading into the half time break, this lead was extended to 4-0 as OhNoAGoat looked down and out. But, with three unanswered goals, including a 94thminute goal to Cristiano Ronaldo, OhNoAGoat got into a rhythm and changed the momentum of the tie.
The second leg continued to go OhNoAGoat’s way as he secured a 3-1 win against a 10 man Akp0 lead Brisbane Roar team, with a left foot Bruce Kamau strike sealing the come from behind Xbox win.
PS4: Dylan “AussieFIFAHD” Banks 8-2 Joel “N8 Jaz” Andruskiewicz
Like his Xbox counterpart, AussieFIFA jumped out to a big lead in the first leg, securing a 6-1 win against E-League debutant N8 Jaz, who was left disappointed with his first leg performance.
The second leg was a much closer game with N8 Jaz fighting back and showing the rest of the league a glimpse of what he can do. Despite going down 1-0 in the 34th minute to an Antoine Griezmann goal, Jaz stayed with AussieFIFA and contested a close game before being rewarded in the 85th minute. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough as AussieFIFA scored a 90th minute winner from Cristiano Ronaldo to secure his second win of the night.
