Gorry sets Roar on their way

-

Matildas star Katrina Gorry had a day to remember after opening the scoring for Brisbane Roar after only a matter of seconds into their encounter with Sydney FC with the Roar running out 3-1 winners.

Following a short stint in the J-League with Vegalta Sendai Gorry returned to the Roar ahead of the W-League season as she looked to continue her fine form for her hometown club.

The 25-year-old opened the scoring only 17 seconds into their encounter with Sydney, if you blinked you would’ve missed it.

The Roar midfielder was at her best when her pile driver found the back of the net to give Roar the perfect start to their W-League campaign.

Along with Matildas teammate Hayley Raso Gorry suffocated the Sky Blues and made it also impossible for the hosts to breakdown a well organised Roar outfit.

Melissa Andreatta’s side looked a class above their counterparts as Hong Kong international Wai Ki Cheung impressed on her debut despite failing to find the back of the net.

The loss will come as a bitter blow to Sydney FC’s new coach Ante Juric who began his W-League coaching career with a loss.

Brisbane kept the Sky Blues quiet despite the hosts dominating possession in the middle of the park.

If Juric wants to get his side firing he’ll have to ensure that their possession translates into goals.

While Andreatta will be more than please by her side’s first outing with the spine of the team clearly a class above their opponents.

The spine of the Roar side includes captain Clare Polkinghorne bossing the defence, Gorry calling the shots in midfield and Allira Toby wreaking havoc across the attacking third.

A standout performer for the visitors, Toby’s brace was just one of the many positives that the Roar can take away from their visit to Allianz Stadium.

On the other hand, some positives came out of the match for Sydney FC as American international, Emily Sonnett opened her account after being introduced as a second half substitute.

Juric will also welcome back Matildas veteran, Lisa De Vanna who returns to the fold following her suspension.
