W-League: Round four results and pics
The Sky Blues looked set to maintain their hold at the summit alongside the Glory, only to concede a late equaliser in a tough 1-1 draw against the visiting Melbourne Victory on Monday.
A day earlier Perth Glory claimed a stunning 10-1 scoreline against Western Sydney Wanderers.
Striker Kate Gill scored a competition-high five goals, including an 11-minute hat-trick, to add to doubles from Sam Kerr and Caitlin Foord.
Sydney FC had a far harder task against champions Melbourne Victory in the first meeting between the pair since last year’s epic semi-final.
Gema Simon eventually drew the visitors level with three minutes remaining to cancel out Jasmyne Spencer’s goal for the Sky Blues.
A goal in each half saw Canberra United returned to winnings ways in style with a 2-0 victory against last season’s grand finalists Brisbane Roar, who slipped to their third defeat in four outings.
Finally, Newcastle Jets proved their semi-final credentials with a confident 4-0 win over Adelaide United, helped by a Rhali Dobson brace.
