Glory, also seeking their first points, struck first through Adam Zimarino on 20 minutes.

But La Galia levelled before half-time and hit the winner five minutes from the end of normal time.

The other match in Group B took place at Frank Drago Reserve and ended in a 2-2 draw between Perth SC and Bayswater City. The result leaves both sides on four points from their opening two matches.

Chris Jackson had Bayswater ahead at the break with a goal from the penalty spot, before Perth turned the game around through Abdullahi Osman and Federico Achilli. However, a late own goal earned Bayswater a draw.
