Melbourne Victory v Melbourne City 2-0

It’s a back to back derby win for the Victory. Their crosstown rivals never really stood a chance with many key players either out with injuries, suspension or away touring. Yukari Kinga, Tameka Butt & Jasmyne Spencer were the top performers for City. Emily Gielnik scored late in the game to seal the win for the Victory. City Goalie Lydia Williams did a great job fending off early attempts at goal. Melbourne Victory is top of the ladder and head to Sydney for an all blues double header on Sunday.

Newcastle Jets v Canberra United 1-0

The Jets controlled the first half but couldn’t quite break though, then just before half-time Cortnee Vine scored what could possibly be the Goal of the Year. This is Vines second career goal for the League. Clare Wheeler & Libby Copus-Brown were standouts for Newcastle while Ellie Carpenter fresh from the Matildas clash with Chile was the best on ground for Canberra. A great match.

 

Perth Glory v Western Sydney 3-0

This was Perth’s first home game of the season. Rachel Hill scored two impressive goals while star player Sam Kerr also scored a great strike. The Wanderers spent majority of the match claiming most of the possessions but were just unable to get through Perth’s strong defence. The Glory sit third on the ladder, ready to take on Melbourne City later this week. The Wanderers head to Newcastle on Saturday.

Adelaide United v Brisbane Roar 1-0

The Lions Stadium was decked out with fantastic orange & black banners & the Reds were resplendent in sparkling white. It’s United’s first win of the season and their first win against the Roar since 2015. This was also World Cup star Yuki Nagasato’s debut for both the Roar and the W-League. American striker Veronica Latsko sealed the win for the Reds in the second half while Goalie Sarah Willacy kept Brisbane from getting through the net. Its back home for the Reds this weekend taking on Canberra. The Roar have a bye.
