The Bulls persisted in their efforts during the second half, but Perth managed to equalise in the 72nd minute after Mustafa Amini successfully converted a penalty. The equaliser seemed to wake the Bulls out of the lull, as they were awarded a penalty in the 78th minute. Valere Germain took the penalty, burying it into the top left-hand corner of the net. Substitutions were made, with Clayton Lewis, Bernardo Oliveira, Jerry Skotadis, Lachlan Rose, and Joel Bertolissio coming on for Jed Drew, Raphael Borges Rodrigues, Kearyn Baccus, Jake Hollman, and Valere Germain, respectively.

Despite two spectacular chances at goal for Davila, both narrowly missing the mark, the afternoon ended in disappointment for the Bulls as Perth Glory managed to secure a late equaliser in the 93rd minute. The match concluded in a 2-2 draw, with the Bulls walking away with one point, sharing the spoils with Perth Glory.
