The Wanderers W-League side have today defeated the Perth Glory 2-nil at Campbelltown Stadium.

After two narrow losses to Adelaide United and Sydney FC, the Wanderers women were out this afternoon at Campbelltown Stadium, still searching for their first win of the season in the Westfield W-League.

In front of a small but vocal crowd who braved the cold and wet conditions, the Wanderers took on top of the table Perth Glory and came away successfully with a 2-0 win.

The game started off quietly with both teams sharing equal possession early on. The first real opportunity of the match came about at the 18th minute via a Perth corner taken by Tabain but was quickly cut off by the Wanderers goal keeper Carly Telford.

The Wanderers first chance on goal was in the 33rd minute when Trudy Camilleri missed an open opportunity at goal to the near side. The end of the first half saw both teams with some close chances on goal before the deadlock was broken by the Wanderers in the 43rd minute. After a precise cross from Teigen Allen, Camilleri was able to capitalise and the put the Wanderers up 1-0 just before half-time.

The second half started out with more energy before the 61st minute when Allen again connected with Camilleri, who slotted it in close range for another goal, putting the score out 2-0.

The Wanderers kept up the tempo and in the 62nd minute, Captain Sarah Walsh took a shot from the edge of the 18 yard box, which was only just knocked away at the last second by the Perth goal keeper.

The Wanderers defence stayed strong despite some late attempts by Perth and managed to keep the visitors scoreless. With this win, the women have finally added some much needed points to ladder and will give the team a confidence boost before the next match against Canberra on Saturday.
