The Wellington Phoenix have created history with a comprehensive 8-2 win over the Central Coast Mariners.
The win was the highest scoring game for the Phoenix. It also equaled the highest scoring A-League football game of all time.
Roy Krishna and Sarpreet Singh were the stars of the show, finishing with two goals each and setting up three others. Krishna’s brace takes his season tally to 14, now joint leader in the Golden Boot race with Sydney FC’s Adam Le Fondre.
The result leaves the Phoenix in 4th place, and a potential A-league football home final,
