89′ Tobias Herwynen with a big defensive block, charging across to block Kamano’s shot after a wonderful raking pass from Mies to spring him.

Half Time

45′ GOAL! 3-0! It gets worse for the Lions, Fischer swings in the free kick to the back post where Mies is inexplicably unmarked and he nods home from close range. 

44′ RED CARD! Demar gets a second yellow for a professional foul to fell a storming Mies, given he was on a yellow that was a poor decision. Lions down to 10.

37′ PENALTY! Linger goes down in the box and the ref points to the spot.

25′ Mies beats two defenders with some superb skill and a save is made by O’Connell at full extension.

16′ Giantsopoulos! A top drawer kick save, extends the leg and denies Verdouw in a 1 v 1.

8′ Tyler Fischer now has a pop from just outside the box but its always rising.

7′ Mies smashes one over the top from close range, opted for power but lost the accuracy in the process

6′ Fischer takes a tumble in the box and appeals for a penalty but the ref is having one of it.

4′ A Downes corner is perfect for Di Martino but he can’t direct the volley.

1′ Kick off, underway at the Den.
