W League: Round Six features full slate for Dash contingent


Amber Brooks, Veronica Latsko and Adelaide United remain unbeaten after the Dash duo combined for a dramatic second-half equalizer against Perth Glory FC on Thursday morning. Brooks also found her Dash teammate in the first half with a long ball that found Latsko outside the box. The forward brushed off a defender to win the ball inside the box and beat the keeper at the near post for her first goal of the game. The match finished as a 2-2 draw as Adelaide climbed into third place on the W-League ladder.  

Kyah Simon and Melbourne City FC look to jump the Newcastle Jets in the W-League ladder on Saturday in a clash at McDonald Jones Stadium. Simon scored her first goal of the season last Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Adelaide United. The defending W-League champion will look for its second victory of the season after dropping three of their first four games.  

Sofia Huerta and Sydney FC host Clare Polkinghorne and Brisbane Roar FC on Saturday in the final match of the weekend. Huerta will look to lead Sydney to its first victory since their opening match of the season. A victory would push Brisbane into the top four of the W League as they look to win their third game of the season.  

Melbourne City vs. Newcastle Jets will be streamed at 9:25 p.m. on Saturday on ESPN +.
