W League | Reds destroy WSW

-

Adelaide United smashed Western Sydney Wanderers to the tune of 10-2 in their W-League clash at Elite Systems Football Centre on Saturday night.

The thrashing was all the more remarkable given that the Lady Reds were winless leading up to the chlash and were without skipper Stella Rigon and first choice keeper Eliza Campbell.

But the hosts stood up to the challenge the unpredictable Wanderers provided and finally took home three points in front of an astounded home crowd.

The Wanderers were able to take the lead in the first half when Sarah Willacy parried a Helen Petinos corner into her own net. However United rebounded immediately when Rachel Quigley equalised just two minutes later in a goalmouth scramble.

The lead went to the hosts nine minutes later when Adriana Jones converted from the spot after Caitlin Cooper pushed her over in the box.

With the lead theirs going into the break the Lady Reds knew they had to come out firing in the second half and that’s exactly what they did.

Mexican international Sofia Huerta bagged a second half hat-trick, and Jones added two more to her tally to grab her teammate on the honours board.

Huerta’s second goal in particular was a sight to behold as she belted a screamer past Wanderers keeper Jada Mathyssen-Whyman from 40 yards out, having spotted her off her line.

Quigley added a second as Alexandra Chidiac and substitute Ally Ladas found their names on the score sheet also.

Earlier Western Sydney had reapplied some pressure by scoring a second goal, but Adelaide’s intense and relentless attacking play was far too much for the visitors to handle. In the end the goal glut was reflective of an entirely dominant performance from a team that has been threatening the league with a win for the last few weeks.

The Lady Reds will look to take this form to Perth next week when they take on the high flying Glory on Sunday night. Meanwhile, Western Sydney will need to regroup urgently against an ever present Canberra United at home on Sunday Afternoon.
