STORY OF THE GAME

  • WSW GOAL! A stunner from Susan Phonsongkham after 23 mins to give the home side the lead.

  • HALF TIME: 1-0
  • VICTORY CHANCE: How did Victory not take the lead? Ayres header back across the box and somehow Dowie’s scuffed header is scrambled clear.

  • CLOSE! LaBonta with a strike just wide

  • AYRES STRIKE Ayres from Melbourne Victory with a strike straight at keeper

GOALS

Phonsongkham WSW 1-0, 23′

Super goal. Phonsongkham with the ball outside the box and from distance placed the ball with her left boot with enough power over Casey Dumont. 

Dowie Victory 1-1, 51′

Dowie brilliance. She holds up the ball, rolls her defender and smashes a ball from just outside the box over and past Whyman to make it 1-1. Stunning.
