The mighty Phoenix reached the first cup final in their short history and last night played the Melbourne Victory, last years league winners, in the pre-season cup final.

9,208 people watched the two teams have their chances in regulation time but no-one could break the nil all deadlock.  After 90 minutes it all came down to a penalty shootout.

The Phoenix lost 8-7 after about 15 minutes of agonising shots from the spot…….

A great but ultimately disappointing night.

Here’s Vic and Emma during the shootout!
