Palerang United travelled to Gungahlin and played in atrocious conditions with a howling westerly wind roaring across the field with the occasional sleeting rain. It was one of the few games to be played in Canberra as it was on a synthetic pitch and Palerang United had a full roster of players to take up the challenge. Gungahlin started the game at a cracking pace with plenty of possession but both teams found the conditions appalling and struggled to keep the ball in the field of play. The wind was that strong it was hard to communicate with each other on the field and Gungahlin managed to capitalise on this when they created space down the left side of the goal box and squeezed in the shot on goal to hand them the lead after 30 minutes. Palerang United certainly had chances on goal as well with Mitch Moon and Johnny Milner having shots on goal but the conditions were certainly a distraction.
