Melbourne City have recorded their first win of the campaign after coming from behind to beat Canberra United 2-1 courtesy of Emily van Egmond's stoppage-time penalty.

Looking to bounce back from last week's disappointing draw in Newcastle, City's star-studded side did things the hard way.

An impressive Canberra United outfit took the lead through Katie Stengel in the 59th minute, however after Milica Mijatovic's first W-League goal had brought the sides level after 67 minutes, it was left to Emily van Egmond to secure all three points for the visitors with her ice-cool penalty deep into stoppage time. 

Canberra United

Sham Khamis - 8

Made a fantastic early save to deny Simon, and then was at her best once again in the second half to keep out van Egmond from close range.

Had a fantastic game but unfortunately could do little as Mijatovic cooly rounded her and finished, before being unlucky to get a hand on van Egmond's penalty but just couldn't keep it out.

Jessie Rasschaert - 6.5

The Canberra local had an impressive game, largely keeping the likes of Mijatovic and then Catley quiet, however her clumsy challenge on Yukari Kinga deep into stoppage time gifted City all three points.

Kaleigh Kurtz - 7

The American was rock solid at the back and led her young teammates around the park.

Nikola Orgill - 7.5

Had a great game, making countless last ditch tackles and blocks to keep City frustrated for large portions of the match.

Karly Roestbakken - 6.5

The Young Matilda was a constant outlet down the left flank, showing great engines to get up and down in an advanced fullback role, however she was quiet by her standards.

Laura Hughes - 7

Worked in tandem with Price to screen the backline and spent the majority of the game doing her best to disrupt City's attacks as the visitors dominated possession. Withdrawn after 74 minutes.
