As a disappointing season comes to an end for the Glory, a large thunderstorm about 45 minutes before kickoff was a fitting metaphor to symbolise Perth’s season.
A hail covered Pirtek stadium, which resembled a clean blanket of snow, was the arena in which Perth defeated Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1.
This was despite a 76th minute red card to Kramar which could have cost the Glory a victory for their fans.
Before this, Jamie Maclaren put Perth in front 17 minutes in to continue his good form from previous weeks.
Perth dominated the game and had numerous chances to double their lead.
Western Sydney equalled after Liam Youlley’s free kick was deflected into the back of the net against the run of play.
Perth continued to show their clear superiority by dominating the game but just missed that finishing touch.
Perth eventually found the breakthrough with Andy Keogh signing off a good season for the glory with his 12th goal of the season.
Kramar was eventually sent off with 15 minutes to go for his second bookable offence.
10-man Perth managed to withstand a barrage of attacks from the Wanderers in the final stages of the game to grab the 3 points.
Perth end the season on 50 points and would have otherwise finished in 3rd if it wasn’t for the salary cap scandal.
Despite the defeat, the Wanderers have avoided the humiliation of the wooden spoon.
Perth now have some time off to rebuild and move on from the drama surrounding this season.
