KEY MOMENTS FROM THE A-LEAGUE GRAND FINAL

1 min: An explosive start. Alex Brosque leaves his studs on Daniel Georgievski's knee, before Leigh Broxham has the Sky Blues captain in a headlock.

20min: VICTORY GOAL. Besart Berisha receives the ball near the half-way line and turns Alex Wilkinson inside out as he speeds towards goal. Cutting inside, he buries a low drive past Danny Vukovic.

34min: A 20-man fracas after a series of fouls in the middle. Filip Holosko earns yellow for grabbing James Donachie's face. James Troisi and Milos Ninkovic are also carded.

Halftime: Melbourne Victory 1 Sydney FC 0

60min: Substitute David Carney tries to spark the Sky Blues, releasing Brosque who dithers rather than shoots. Lawrence Thomas dives to save a mistimed Carney volley.

69min: SYDNEY GOAL. Thomas pushes Carney's shot onto the back post - it bobbles onto Berisha's head and Rhyan Grant surges onto the loose ball to ram home the equaliser.

76min: Rojas sets up a golden chance for Troisi, only for the Socceroo to send another shot sailing over the bar.

Fulltime: Sydney FC 1 Melbourne Victory 1

98min: A terrific Rojas free kick is met by Alan Baro, whose header strikes the base of the post and goes wide. In the aerial contest, Vukovic coathangers Wilkinson, who needs several minutes of attention.
