Wellington wins 1st A-League match of season, beat Sydney FC
SYDNEY - Belgian striker Stein Huysegems' goal in the 33rd minute gave the Wellington Phoenix their first A-League win of the season, a 1-0 decision over Sydney FC.
The Phoenix had four draws and six losses before the win Sunday. Sydney, which missed a chance to move into second place with a victory, was playing without former Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero, who has a back injury.
The Perth Glory and Adelaide played to a scoreless draw in the other match Sunday. The Glory played for the first time under interim coach Kenny Lowe, who replaced Alistair Edwards this week.
The first-place Brisbane Roar have a five-point lead over Western Sydney. The Wanderers could close the gap when they play Central Coast in the final match of the round on Monday.
