Ayres happy with incredible goal

Ayres happy with incredible goal

Melbourne Victory attacker Melina Ayres was happy with her stunning strike against the Brisbane Roar, but not the result in the Westfield W-League.

Ayres, 18, produced a moment of magic during Victory’s 2-1 loss at Suncorp Stadium on Friday.

The attacker ran at the Roar defence before unleashing a wonderful 20-yard effort into the top corner to give Victory the lead with her first goal for the club.

“She kept dropping so I thought I would just have a shot so I was pretty happy,” Ayres told Fox Sports.

“But it wasn’t enough today.”

While Ayres gave Victory the lead, second-half headers from Clare Polkinghorne and Celeste Boureille saw Roar to its win.

Victory conceded the equaliser from a corner and the second after initially dealing with another set-piece.

“It’s disappointing, especially after we went 1-0 up and we really needed to win this game,” Ayres said.

“It’s really disappointing, we conceded from two set-pieces so we’re not happy.”
