WNPL ROund 8

Metro United WFC vs Adelaide Comets

Venue: VALO Football Centre Date: 26/04/2019 06:15 PM

Metro United managed to get back to winning ways last week, recording a resounding 8-2 victory over the young FFSA NTC squad. Metro’s previous two encounters had seen them draw with Salisbury Inter and go down to league leaders Adelaide City.

Competition newcomers Adelaide Comets will be looking for their second win of the season in order to stay in touch with the top 5 clubs, who have started to break away from the rest of the pack.

Prolific goal scorer Chrissy Panagaris bagged a hattrick last week which places her equal leading goal scorer of the competition (10) after 7 games.

The Comets defence has held strong in each of its encounters this year and will need to be switched on if they’re to stop the second best attacking side in the league.
