PS4: Zachary 'vDreamz-Shooter' May-Burgess 2-3 Peter 'saisanas' Saisanas
Zachary May-Burgess' impressive second-half comeback fell just short as Peter Saisanas escaped with a 3-2 win for Perth.
Saisanas started brightly, notching the first on 17 minutes and doubling his advantage with a bottom-corner finish after the half-hour.
May-Burgess got on the front foot in an attempt to keep the tie alive and he did just that beyond half-time, cutting the deficit courtesy of a Shane Lowry own goal and then drawing level 20 minutes from time.
However, Saisanas survived the scare as he surged forward once more and unleashed a Ruud Gullit piledriver to recapture a decisive lead.
