In the 25th minute, Gazza took a pass from freshman forward Clay Green from the right corner and found the back of the net.
Gazza's work for the day was not finished however as in the 34th minute of the first half he assisted on UWA's second goal of the match as Evan Beutler scored off a Gazza pass to extend the Tiger's first half lead, 2-0.
