Newcastle Jets have notched up their first win of the season after a hard fought 2-1 victory over Perth Glory on Saturday evening at Dorrien Gardens.
With both sides looking for their first win of the new campaign, it was the visitors from Newcastle who ended an 11-year hoodoo by registering their first ever win in Perth thanks to goals by Nikki Flannery and Tara Andrews.
Spanish international Celia scored on her debut for the home side to reduce the deficit and Eliza Campbell saved a late penalty from Andrews to keep her side in the contest, but a gusty defensive display from the Jets was enough to earn them all three points and leave last year's beaten Grand Finalists rooted to the foot of the table after four rounds.
Eliza Campbell - 7
Could do little about either goal, and produced an excellent penalty save to deny Andrews with just under 10 minutes remaining.
Julia Sardo - 6
Tormented by Collister all evening and had an excellent chance to equalise in the 71st minute. Registered the most touches of any player on the park but struggled to influence the game.
Ari Romero - 7
Went about her work diligently and defended well throughout.
Natasha Rigby - 7
Threw her body into challenges and led by example, exactly what you expect from the skipper.
