Sydney FC come out on top of Adelaide United after an own goal and an individual moment of brilliance.
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.
