Sydney FC showed how professional they are with a solid performance. Melbourne Victory have a lot of improvement to do if they are to get to where they were last year.

Played well and kept the Victory forwards at bay.
7. Ellie Brush -7.5
Marshalled the team well. Good leadership and organisation.

Was creative all game and had some clever touches.
10. Remy Siemsen -8.5
Two well taken goals. Put herself in the right spot.

Late substitution so didn’t have much to do.
Mackenzie Hawkesby -6
Barely had a touch after coming on for the last few minutes.
