Hayley Taylor-Young - 7

Her reward for scoring last week's winner was a starting debut in front of her home crowd and the youngster buzzed about and made some good runs, but often was isolated up front and outclassed by the likes of Huynh and Staab before being subbed off after 76 minutes.


Ashlie Crofts - 6.5

Came on with 15 to go as Canberra chased the game and created a late opportunity for Charley, but otherwise could do little to impact the match.

Emma Stanbury - 6.5

Thrown on with Crofts as Garriock tried to change things, but the damage was already done and she could do little to change the match. Forced Smith into a decent save from a tight angle late on.

Lauren Keir - N/A

Brought on with four minutes to go.

Western Sydney Wanderers

Abby Smith - 7

Had very little to do asides from picking up a yellow for dissent in the first half. Was alert to keep out Canberra late on as she kept her third clean sheet of the campaign.

Erica Holloway - 8.5

The skipper was a constant threat down the right side. Produced the assist for the opener, and was fantastic throughout the match.

Sam Staab - 8

Spent more time creating attacking chances on the back of her long throws than actually defending, but was a key contributor as she continues to impress in her debut campaign down under.
