Westfield W-League 2014/15 Round 6 Review

Perth Glory extended their lead at the top of the Westfield W-League ladder to five points following an action-packed round six.

The Glory edged a win over the visiting Sydney FC thanks to Marianna Tabain’s lone strike, extending their winning run this season to six matches.

Brisbane Roar played out a tough 1-1 draw against Melbourne Victory in the first meeting between the pair since last season’s grand final. An equaliser from Sunny Franco six minutes from the end avoided a three-match losing run for the Roar, who fell behind to Amy Jackson’s goal midway through the second half.

There was a shock for Canberra as Adelaide United claimed their first ever-win in the nation’s capital. A 3-2 scoreline gave Adelaide their first points of the season, as veteran forward Kristy Moore led the way with a double.

Western Sydney Wanderers were briefly on target for another upset as they were in front against the visiting Newcastle Jets just before half-time, only for Peter McGuiness’ side to nab four second-half goals for a 5-1 scoreline.
