Red card: Smeltz (GCU) 67th

Laurie McKinna's Central Coast Mariners gave their coach the perfect present to honour his 100th match in charge, as they were too good in all departments for the league leaders, inflicting the new club's heaviest defeat of the season.

And if the loss wasn't disappointing enough, Gold Coast's top scorer Shane Smeltz was sent off in the 67th minute, meaning he will miss the next match against the improving Melbourne Victory.
