Roar win the A-League

Brisbane Roar have defeated Western-Sydney Wanderers in a tense grand final that went into extra time

Brisbane Roar completed a comeback to come back from  0-1 down to win 2-1 shortly into the 2nd half of extra time thanks to Henrique. 
Matthew Sprianovic handed the lead to the Wanderers after heading home a corner delivered from Japanese play maker Shinji Ono. 
Besart Berisha cancelled out Sprianovic's header with a header of his own thanks to a ball whipped in from Broich from a free kick outside the box.
The decisive goal came in the 109th minuted after James Donachie squared a ball to Henrique, who snap-shot the ball into the middle of the net. 

The Joe Marsden Medal for man of the match was split between Thomas Broich and Iacopo La Rocca.

Berisha thanked Brisbane fans for making his stay in the North so good,"It's amazing. I had such a good time here," said an emotional  Berisha, who played his last game in a Roar jersey before he is on his way to Melbourne Victory. "To finish like this is fantastic, thank you so much."
