The Breakers started strongly and created plenty of scoring opportunities, but as per past games seemed to struggle to capitalise. Kenagy, Polson and Houghton had early chances.

Houghton was doing his normal solid effort and put in some great crosses and corners, but his teammates just weren't getting on the end of them, until finally Kenagy got onto a ball that he buried into the net.

The next goal came from a superbly placed free kick from Cooper that Kenagy once again latched onto and scored his second. Truong came off the bench and straight away into the action with a cracking shot that the keeper just managed to parry away, the ball fell to Houghton who put the ball back into the danger zone and Peters was there to head home Breakers third goal.

So with Breakers on top and controlling the play all players were putting in a great effort. Just before the half time break, an Iggys attacker broke clear and the player who was awarded a penalty that the home team slotted. Half time Breakers were 3-1 up.

In the second half it was Breakers full of running and Truong went on a storming run and set up Houghton for a goal. Peruvian Henry came off the bench and under instructions from coach Munro to work hard, did exactly forcing errors from the Iggys defence with a solid effort.

The game then took a turn when Peters headed back to keeper Taylor who was wrong footed and couldn't stop the goal. With the score at 4-2, Iggys pushed forward again and Breakers defender Scott on his 21st birthday gifted another own goal to the opposition. Breakers managed to hold on for the last few desperate minutes to take the points with a 4-3 win. This consolidates Breakers second place on the table.

Best players were captain Tom Kenagy, Mat Cooper, Aaron Houghton and Hayden Wackerman. Breakers will travel to Aldinga this Saturday for the final game of the 2018 season, before presentation night on  September 22.
