In hot, humid conditions Perth Glory Youth lost their opening game of the season 2-1 to Brisbane Roar at Intiga Stadium.

Despite trailing 1-0 at half-time Brisbane secured the three points with long range strikes from George Lambadaridis and Do Dong-Hyun.

Earlier Perth Glory got the perfect start on ten minutes when a poor back pass from Roar defender James Donachie resulted in a bizarre own goal.

With drink breaks required every 20 minutes both sides found the first half difficult but the visitors did create through Korean import Do and the lively Kwame Yeboah.

Glory keeper Devon Spence denied Yeboah on 16 minutes and again late in the first half as Brisbane pressed for an equaliser.

The heat did have an impact as the match got older and the second half was more open as both sides tired and game became stretched.

Perth Glory-s Moses Kalau has his stinging drive saved by Tubbs, then moments later Borbor Sam wasted a great opportunity to double the home side's advantage when he was sent clean through on goal by Brandon O'Neill only to fire wastefully wide from just inside the box.

But with 20 minutes to play Brisbane equalised when Roar midfielder Lambadaridis 25m free-kick deflected past Spence.

Pressing for a late winner, Brisbane forced Spence into another two sharp saves before Do showed his clash with a winner seven minutes from time.

Perth Glory Youth: 1 (Donachie (og) 4-) Brisbane Roar:2 (Lambardaris 70-, Do 83-)
