W-League report: Sydney 3-0 Victory

W-League report: Sydney 3-0 Victory

Melbourne Victory was beaten 3-0 by Sydney FC in its Westfield W-League opener on Sunday.

Summary

Remy Siemsen scored a first-half brace for the Sky Blues at Jubilee Stadium, where Victory squandered numerous chances.

After a far more even second half, Shadeene Evans sealed Sydney’s win in additional time to condemn reigning premier Victory to defeat.

Victory made a poor start away from home, Siemsen giving Sydney a fourth-minute lead with a low effort from inside the area.

The visitor started to settle as Natasha Dowie tested Sydney goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe before Melina Ayres fired a decent chance wide on the half-volley in the 17th minute.

Sydney doubled its lead five minutes later, Siemsen getting on the end of a Caitlin Foord ball and heading past Casey Dumont.

Victory continued to enjoy some fine moments as Amy Jackson and Grace Maher forced Bledsoe into a couple of good saves approaching the half-hour mark.

Dumont made a low save from a Sofia Huerta effort before Dowie had two chances prior to half-time.

Victory’s all-time leading Westfield W-League goalscorer was just unable to poke past Bledsoe after a brilliant Darian Jenkins cross before almost putting away an Ayres header.

Introduced shortly after half-time, Victory midfielder Annalie Longo had an effort saved by Bledsoe in the 58th minute.

Victory left-back Angela Beard put a drive wide from distance before centre-back Jenna McCormick produced a last-ditch tackle to deny Princess Ibini.

Polly Doran almost set up Beard before Dumont made a one-on-one save against Evans, who headed in a late goal for the host.
