BRISBANE, Australia (AP) - Brazilian-born Henrique’s 74th-minute goal gave Brisbane a 1-0 win Sunday over the Perth Glory, moving the Roar into first place in the A-League.

The win placed Brisbane two points ahead of Sydney FC, who lost 4-2 on Saturday to the Melbourne Victory in a grand final rematch. It was Sydney’s first loss of the season.

The diminutive Henrique, who came on as a substitute in the 58th minute, leaped high to poke home the goal which resulted from a through pass from Spanish signing Javi Hervas.

The sixth-round results left four teams - the Victory, Western Sydney, Newcastle and Wellington - level on points for third, a point behind Sydney and three behind Brisbane.
