Canberra United have consolidated their spot in the top four with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Adelaide United at Marsden Sports Complex on Sunday afternoon with 17-year-old Hayley Taylor-Young coming off the bench to score the winner with her first W-League goal.
Charlotte Grant - 7.5
Full of energy and looked to get forward where possible, did her best to try and contain the dangerous Simone Charley. The Young Matilda is full of promise and is one to watch for the future.
Kahlia Hogg - 7.5
Hogg was the main reason neither side managed to dominate the midfield, as she got through a mountain of work shielding her back four.
Georgia Campagnale - 6.5
Showed her quality in patches but failed to assert herself as Adelaide struggled to turn possession into meaningful passing. Withdrawn on the hour mark.
Lais Araujo - 6.5
The Brazilian had the most touches of any player on the park, but failed to really make her mark on the match as Canberra did a excellent job of limiting her touches in dangerous areas. Often had to drop deep to receive the ball which nullified her attacking influence.
Chelsea Dawber - 6.5
The young winger found herself in excellent spaces but failed to provide the clinical edge required. With Adelaide struggling at the foot of the table, they can't afford to be spurning gilt-edge opportunities and Dawber could've had a hat-trick on another day.
Mallory Weber - 7
The American was Adelaide's main threat outside of Fowler, and was always positive and had a great battle with Roestbakken. Provided more crosses than any other player, including the cross which led to Condon's consolation strike.
Mary Fowler - 6.5
It's hard to be critical of a 16 year-old but everything Adelaide do is directed through the teenage superstar. Her ability to dribble is wonderful to watch, but she constantly held on to the ball too long and wasted promising openings throughout the match. Her teammates could be heard telling her to shoot at times, but we have to remember she is just 16, and she will no doubt be a star for many years to come.
Emily Condon - 7
Played the final 30 minutes and was a keen worker, but still struggled to swing the match in favour of the home side. Had her initial close range finish well saved by Khamis, but prodded the rebound home to set up an interest last few minutes.
Isabel Hodgson - 6.5
Given around half an hour to impress but found the going tough and never really impacted the match.
Dylan Holmes - N/A
Thrown on inside the last 10 as Adelaide tried to salvage something, but failed to provide a telling contribution.
