The second half began at a frenetic pace, as both teams tried to add to the scoresheet.
A yellow card was given to WA’s Trent Coehn leading to an unsuccessful free kick from Jayden Emery, as WA filled the goal with defenders.
Metro FQ had multiple opportunities to extend their lead towards the end of the half but were unable to do so due to an excellent Brendon Brassington in goals.

With two wins from their opening two matches, Metro FQ’s comeback win shows the rest of the competition that they are not a team to underestimate going forward.
