The W-League is getting stronger

The main thing fans can take away from this game is that the W-League is getting stronger.

If you look at the big picture, this game was third on the ladder vs eighth, and for three-quarters of the game the score could’ve gone either way.  

In the past, W-League clubs would be heavily divided by the midpoint of the season, with clear run-away leaders already.

And although you could argue that Melbourne City and the Western Sydney Wanderers are doing just that, the overall performance of W-League games are certainly of a higher calibre now than ever before.

In the first half, Adelaide United were very unlucky to not be awarded a penalty after Alanna Kennedy fouled in the box.

If the referee called this penalty and Adelaide scored, the game could’ve gone in a completely different direction.

It’s exciting times for the W-League, with the overall quality of teams improving and better competition across the board emerging.

Let’s hope the second half of the season will be just as exciting as the first. 

An absolute 🚀 from @princessibini_ to wrap up the points in the @WLeague!
