W-League: Roar defeat Victory 2-1

It was a fantastic start from the Victory as Melina Ayres opened the scoring with a goal of the year contender on the 22nd minute.

Brisbane peppered the Victory goal, but some great defending from the girls saw the score stay 1-0 going into half time.

The Roar’s dominance in the second half was too much for the Victory, as Clare Polkinghorne and Celeste Boureille headed the ball in the back of the Melbourne goal to go up 2-1.

It was a great effort by the Victory girls who defended well all game, but it wasn’t enough to secure the points.

The win ensured Brisbane go to the top of the W-League ladder.

The Victory next play Melbourne City on Sunday the 14th of January at Epping Stadium. Hope to see you there!
