ICYMI: Westfield W-League Round 4 wrap

There was plenty of late drama and bold comebacks in Westfield W-League action over the weekend.

Here's how round four played out.

HAYLEY'S LATE HEROICS

Hayley Raso was Roar's heroine in the weekend's opening game, giving her side a 1-0 win over Adelaide United.

With the contest goal-less heading into its final stages, Raso's deflected strike in the 86th minute was enough to give Brisbane the victory.

The win also kept Raso's side level at the top of the ladder after four rounds.

SKY BLUES NOTCH FIRST WIN

There was high drama at Allianz Stadium with Sydney FC claiming their first win of the season in a five-goal thriller against Melbourne City.

Substitute Remy Siemsen scored a dramatic stoppage time winner as the Sky Blues twice came from behind to snatch all three points.

Sydney FC twice trailed to Alanna Kennedy's header and Larissa Crummer's second half volley but responded both times through Kylie Ledbrook and Teresa Polias.

With time almost up, Siemsen fired home Princess Ibini's cross to give her side a much-needed victory.

CANBERRA THE COMEBACK QUEENS

For the second week in succession, Canberra United came from behind to win, beating Newcastle 2-1.

Emily van Egmond's early penalty gave the Jets the lead, but Canberra found second-half goals through Ashleigh Sykes and Toni Pressley to claim victory.

Newcastle are now winless in 14 straight games against Canberra, whose win also moved them level with the Jets on the ladder.

SAM SIZZLES AS GLORY STAY TOP

Westfield Matildas superstar Sam Kerr scored twice as Perth Glory came from behind to retain their place at the top of the ladder.

Natasha Dowie headed Melbourne Victory into a second half lead, but red-hot Glory striker Rachel Hill quickly replied with her sixth goal in four games.

It then became the Sam Kerr show, as she first put Perth ahead after 65 minutes and sealed a 3-1 win with her second goal 12 minutes later.
