Premiers’ Plate winners Canberra United and Perth Glory will host the semi finals after unexpected results and late drama in the final round of the 2016/17 W-League regular season.
Canberra United produced a dominant performance on Saturday against Melbourne Victory to go into the box seat for the premiership heading into Sunday’s matches. The red hot Adelaide United continued their late season surge with the 5-2 win over Sydney FC to deny the Sky Blues a third premiership.
To add insult to injury, a Caitlin Doeglas goal in the last 30 seconds of the season saw Perth Glory win 1-0 to leapfrog Sydney into second place and a home berth.
Perth Glory will host their semi final at nib Stadium – an A-League double header – on Saturday, 4 February 2017 with kick off at 4pm local time (7pm AEDST).
