It was also their first win against Roar since the 2015/16 season with the team in orange taking the wins in their last four meetings. 

Those fans who ventured out to Lions Stadium saw World Cup winner Yuki Nagasato make her Brisbane Roar and W-League debut. 

Adelaide were playing just their second game of the season after drawing their opening match to now ladder leaders Melbourne Victory.

The opening half of the match saw both sides have their chances but were unable to covert.

The best chance of the opening 45 minutes came from Gunnhildur Jonsdottir when her shot from the top of the box hit the underside of the crossbar and that came in the first two minutes of the match. 

Roar weren't without their chances though and it was Chioma Ubogagu who was creating the majority of them but the best came in the 36th minute.

A play between Celeste Boureille and Nagasato found Ubogagu in the box, who's shot forced the ball to be cleared from the line.

Roar came out the gates looking for a goal but just like their opening game of the season against of the season against Perth, they were made to pay for not taking their chances earlier.

Dylan Holmes slipped the ball through to Veronica Latsko who was able to slot the ball past Mackenzie Arnold. 

The home side continued peppering the goal but even Ubogagu's attempt right on the goal line was somehow cleared to the disbelief of everyone at the game. 

Roar have scored two goals in three matches and have a conversion rate of just six percent, one of the lowest in the league.

Adelaide goalkeeper Sarah Willacy was the hero of the day as her saves gave her side the win. 

Standing at only 159cm, she was able to stop a thunderous shot from Clare Polkinghorne destined for the top corner. 

Up next for Adelaide will be their first home game of the season where they host Canberra United while Roar will have a bye.
