WT Birkalla 1

Pirates 2

Pirates enjoyed some early chances but it was Birkalla’s Paul Radice who scored first just after the half hour mark. He showed all his football nous to pounce on a through ball to get in between the keeper and defender before coolly slotting the ball into the back of the net. 

But not even ten minutes later, Pirates were back on level terms after their Japanese offseason recruit, Hikaru Tanaka, blasted a venomous shot from outside the box into the top right hand corner of the net. Both sides enjoyed good spells of possession before Port substitute Josh Giles latched onto a looping header to head it into the net.
