The Central Coast Mariners were playing away to Wellington Phoenix in the A-League today and it was an extremely eventful affair with the Mariners coming out on top.

Phoenix striker David Ball went off early as he earned himself a red card in the 27′ and the Mariners were able to capitalise on this though a first half finish from striker Matt Simon.

His celebration is what has everyone talking though as the Australian striker sprinted over to the romantic couples in the corner to share a seat with them.

The commentators are right though, I hope those fans are travelling Mariner fans or else he might have ruined their day. The fans seemed to enjoy it anyway.
