Defenders don’t get to score goals all that often – particularly when they’re striking it from the near the halfway line!
Here’s a note to all goalkeepers. Always make sure you’re protecting your line, and don’t stray too far unless you absolutely have to.

Melbourne would have the last say, however, after finding an equaliser and winning on penalties.
