The match that brought a whole new meaning to the word heart-throb. You'd be forgiven for thinking your heart was going to pop out of your chest with six goals in the first half highlighting a possible turning tide for the Wanderers. Here are three things we learned.
TOURE LATE TO THE PARTY
After 73 minutes of play Adelaide fans must have been wondering where the boy wonder was. Mohamed Toure, the 15-year old sensation - who had become the youngest goal scorer in A-League history last week - wasn't seen until Adelaide went another goal down at 5-2.
This match looked set for the youngster to dazzle and dare. His positive attitude and wonderful technique may have opened doors for Adelaide in the second half that Kristian Opseth or George Blackwood couldn't.
A young, hungry and fearless teenager would have been the last thing the Wanderers defence wanted to deal with. A dangerous two goal cushion could easily have been toppled given Western Sydney's poor form in the last 15 minutes of matches.
GAME OF THE SEASON?
A crowd of 9,231 watched this tantalising fixture, and plenty more Wanderers fans will wish they were there too.
They missed out on a sensational battle between two teams fighting tooth and nail, one for the finals, the other for the Asian Champions League.
Throw in the spectacular performances from a crop of youngsters and brilliant goals, it will go down as one of the best games of the season.
