Lanka dazzles, but it isn't enough as DongJi steal the win in Extra Time Play.

Immortals heartbroken after Dongji steals the win in extra time with a goal by deCosta.

Dongji was on defence for the majority of the game, with 2 solid goals from Amrita Captain, Uday Lanka. With 6 minutes left in the second half, Cheng was able to convert a pass from Ekberg and tie the game, bringing it into overtime. This is the first 10 minute overtime of Season 2 as officials test out the new rules replacing the sudden death shoot out model of Season 1. Unfortunately, the Immortals faded fast during the 10 extra minutes of overtime, giving deCoast the chance to break the tie for Dongji.

Al'amal gives away game after foul by Mohar gives Petrovich a chance at the goal.

Dynamo captain Ilya Petrovich #91 nails the penalty and scores his first goal of the season, a beautiful curve straight into the top right corner, to win the match for the Dynamos. Al'amal burned through their roster too quickly with early substitutions and paid the price.  Dynamos back-to-back wins puts them on top of the early season standings.

Season 1 veteran, Stephen Liu, opens up the comet offence in his new role as forward while Rookie, Dalton Dunn, makes his first mark in MAFL.

MAFL newcomer, Dalton Dunn, scores his first goal in the final minutes for the match to net a victory for the Comets!

Liu is settling into his new position as the Comets' forward as he opens up scoring with a fantastic header. The Comets are in great form as they rally after last week's loss to Al'amal—their play is flawless tonight. The referees are much more strict this year. McKay is warned with a yellow for bumping into Comet's midfielder, but booked a second time and sent off when she charged into Shelton as they chased the ball. 

GOALS

  • HT 13' Lui for scores for Comets
  • HT 19' Repsas for scores for Wuji
  • FT 27' Dunn scores for Comets
