US players in Westfield W-League: star performers in Round 13

It was another massive weekend in the Westfield W-League, with several US stars stealing the show with some superb performances in Round 13.

Here’s a wrap of how some of the Americans playing in the Westfield W-League performed over the weekend.

Katie Stengel

Stengel has been key to the success of the Newcastle Jets this season and she displayed her qualities yet again in their 5-1 win against Canberra United.

Stengel was in fine form scoring a hat-trick, which ensured that the Jets took all three points and secured just second Finals birth since the Westfield W-League’s inaugural season.

Despite her excellent performance, Brisbane came from behind to beat the Red’s 4-2
