Kappa Pro Series R5 Match Wrap: Sunshine Coast Wanderers 3-1 Brisbane Roar

Young Roar suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sunshine Coast Wanderers in their final Kappa Pro Series Group B match on Wednesday night.

A Ty Cobb strike wasn’t enough for Roar as the Wanderers took all three points thanks to goals from Max Brown, Jeremy Stewart and Jhairah Taylor.

Max Brown capitalised on a defensive mishap in the 30th minute to send the hosts into the break with a lead before Jeremy Stewart doubled their advantage with a penalty five minutes into the second half.
