    Great day & great team performance! 4-0 clap Tseng's pass to Ashleigh for the opener was all class, unlike the attendance of only 600ish. But they saw the pick of this seasons matches & we loved every minute.

    Congrats girls. Big up yourselves! Thumbs Up

    Agree with Brushed.

    A more composed effort by everyone in all areas. This time the mids were actually chasing our passes instead of running around after opposition passes.

    The backs were magnificent, especially Studman who decked De Vanna at one stage with a nice tackle, (I was waiting for the spray at the coach when she got subbed off) but everyone played well.

    Well done to Ashleigh clap for getting the monkey off her back with a nice goal. Maybe now the floodgates will open now that some confidence is back in her game, which she has clearly been lacking at times recently.

    But a P Poor crowd again....

    A great performance by all of the girls. It was good to see some of the younger and/or inexperienced players play well. Both the Sykes, Studman, Perry, Raymond. And then of course on top of that great performances from Maciejewski, Brush and Gill, we were always gonna be hard to beat.

    Great performance girls!

    Great showing by the girls, and unlike the capital football fans they did themselves very proud.
    Agree with you guys, we were all class today. Couldn't fault any player on the pitch, everyone did exactly as were asked and a million percent effort paid off.
    Lisa daVanna really didn't like us. Or anyone on her team for that matter. Did anyone else notice she didn't come out after the match for the warmdown?

    Big ups to Ellie Raymond for falling over whilst celebrating. ROFL Cool

    Probably because she had a big bag of ice on her ankle after she got subbed off (with no abuse towards the coaching staff this time)

    Did you also notice she walked out after half time about 3 mins ahead of the rest of the team and just sat on the bench?

    The blokes on Capital Hill were really giving it to Lisa De Vanna. She then responded with her traditional middle finger to the crowd.

    A brilliant effort yesterday. That is the Canberra United of old. If we had played like that againts Brisbane last week, they would've had no hope.

    Great performance! Thumbs Up

    for those who missed it:

    Canberra United has recorded its biggest ever victory in the Westfield W-League with a 4-0 victory over Perth Glory at McKellar Park.

    The four goal haul, the largest in the club’s short history sees the Canberra side move into fifth ahead of Perth and within touching distance of the top four with three rounds remaining.

    Immediately from kick off the home side was on the attack and the first chance of the match went Ashleigh Sykes when she found the ball at her feet on the doorstep of Perth’s goal.

    With her back to goal, Sykes turned and shot but custodian Emma Wirkus was quick to react to produce a great save with her legs from point blank range.

    The two sides exchanged possession in search from the opening goal of the match and it was the individual brilliance of Tseng Shu O that nearly put Canberra into the lead after 17 minutes.

    The diminutive striker danced her way down the left wing to the end line and whipped in a great cross before Cian Maciejewski blazed her first time effort over the bar after Perth failed to clear the ball.

    Minutes later, Sykes was on the attack again as she showed the Perth defence a clear pair of heels down the left wing but her attempt on goal was no trouble for Wirkus from an acute angle.

    In very warm conditions Canberra’s pace was proving very difficult for the Perth backline to handle with the bulk of possession played in the visitors half.

    The hosts had a fright in the 32nd minute when Perth striker Lisa De Vanna’s shot on target slipped through Lydia William’s hands and narrowly trickled past the right hand upright.

    Canberra’s dominance was eventually rewarded on the scoreboard when Ashleigh Sykes continued her amazing ability to score against the Glory with her third goal against Perth in as many games.

    A well weighted ball over the top of the Perth backline put Sykes through on goal who calmly slotted past Wirkus, who had raced off her goal line, to put Canberra in front only minutes before half time.

    The slender lead could have been extended further just before the break with a dangerous ball across the face of goal narrowly missing Sykes racing in before Jen Bisset couldn’t hit the target from directly in front on the stroke of half time.

    With a 1-0 lead at the break, Canberra’s advantage was doubled shortly after when co-captain Ellie Brush headed home in trademark fashion from an Ellyse Perry corner.

    Wirkus could do little as Brush drifted in at the back post and rose above the pack to put Canberra United further ahead in the 61st minute with a powerful header.

    Possession continued to favour the home side in the second half as Canberra pushed forward unhappy with just a two goal lead to the delight of the 684 in attendance.

    Canberra United substitute Ellie Raymond had an immediate impact coming off the bench in the 61st minute for Tseng when the striker put her side 3-0 ahead.

    Goal scorer Ashleigh Sykes turned provider when she played a through ball to Raymond who did well to hold off the defender and put her chance past Wirkus in the 77th minute.

    Friendly fire in injury time rounded out the scoring when another set piece had Perth on the back foot as Maciejewski’s header towards goal but took a large deflection off substitute Jaymee Gibbons in front of goal.

    Canberra United recorded its second win of the season and second clean sheet at home this year however head coach Ray Junna believes there’s still better to come but was happy with the three points.

    “It finally went in the net, I think we have played better but we got the four goals so what do you take, we'll take the win,” Junna said after the match.

    “The more people you can have chipping in for goals, they can't focus on stopping just one player, as a team if everyone can score then everyone can get amongst it, that's great.”

    With the top four campaign back on track, Junna believes that Canberra United deserve to be contesting this year’s finals series after that performance.

    “Hopefully this will give us a bit of momentum,” Junna said.

    “I think we've warranted enough football throughout the year to be in [the top four], we've played all the teams currently in the top four so far.

    “We're not afraid of anyone, we've matched everyone, it's just on the day we haven't won the game, finals I think we are well positioned and I think we deserve to be there.”

    Match Details:

    Canberra United 4 (A. Sykes 41’, Brush 52’, Raymond 77’, OwnGoal 90’+2)
    Perth Glory 0
