Shots were fired at either end up until the half-time whistle, but Jonsdottirā€™s opener remained the only goal and Adelaide had the advantage leading into the second half.

There was zero hesitancy from both sides to take on players and work their way into the box. Some beautiful link-up play between Allira Toby and Raso saw the latter intelligently move in behind defenders and stretch out for a chance at goal.

In the 50thĀ minute, Dylan Holmes whipped in a cross at the back post for Jonsdottir, but she was not able to keep her header down.

Raso was clawing for theĀ equaliserĀ as she slid in to try and latch onto a back-pass to Willacy and almost getting there.

Four at the back for the Reds seemed to be working in theirĀ favourĀ as the half progressed, making crucial clearances as Brisbane tried to sneak their way in.

Heymanā€™s goal in the 64thĀ minute was ruled offside in a close call, after some persistent play.

A determined Raso took on and beat two Adelaide defenders to dink a pass to Toby who skied her effort over the bar.

Willacy pulled outĀ a fabulousĀ diving save to knock Tobyā€™s strike over the crossbar and then saved Nagasatoā€™s penalty kick in spectacular fashion on theĀ 86thĀ minuteĀ mark to be Adelaideā€™s saving grace.

It just wasnā€™t Brisbaneā€™s night in front of goal as Willacy and Unitedā€™sĀ defenceĀ remained headstrong to hold out for the three points.
