Three things we learned tonight from the Melbourne derby.
2. Steph Catley is a gem
This isn’t anything we actually learned. We all know how good she is.
Tonight she ran herself ragged and put 12 balls into the box. She was relentless and it paid off in the last minute when she set up the winner for Yukari Kinga.
Her pace on the flanks makes her and Melbourne City always look dangerous especially when opposition teams tire out. Victory found this out the hard way tonight.
Her link up play with Kinga is beautiful to watch. With Ellie Carpenter on the other wing, opposing teams will sleep well after a match against City.
Catley chases hard in defence and provides an option in attack. What more could you ask from the Matilda’s star!
