Striker Bryleeh Henry on using the momentum from the Wanderers first win of the season to the team’s advantage.
Henry converted from the spot to secure a 1-0 win over Liberty A-League side Brisbane Roar, snatching a very valuable three points for the first time this season.
“It was so good, we know that was an important win for us and we haven’t had a win yet,” said Henry.
“We’ve been a bit unlucky having not finished our chances so to come away with a win, we worked really hard so it’s good to get three points.”
Henry stepped up to slot the spot kick past Roar goalkeeper Georgina Worth marking the 18-year-old’s first goal of the 2021/22 campaign.
Looking back on those seconds before the ball hit the back of the net, the young gun was confident that she was going to convert for the team.
“I knew I needed to bury it because it’s so important to us,” said Henry.
“It would be good to get up and that’s an opportunity to score anytime you get a penalty so I’m glad I could put it away for the team.”
The Wanderers Liberty A-League side will next take on an in-form Melbourne Victory side when they travel to CommBank Stadium on Sunday with Henry hoping the momentum from the match can push the side into Finals Series contention.
“Good to get the three points, hopefully, we can keep building and hopefully that has broken the lock over the last three games,” said Henry.
“Hopefully we can keep building and push for Finals as that’s what we want.”
