So after months of wondering what the second season of the W-League would bring, now Round 1 has come and gone. It had a grand final rematch that went all too much the same for Canberra fans at Ballymore and the rest of the girls all had a chance to play on the best pitches in Australia as curtain raisers for A-League games. So what has girlswithgame learned so far?
BRISBANE ROAR 3 (Courtney Beutel 32', 69', Tameka Butt 63') bt CANBERRA UNITED 0 at Ballymore Stadium.
MELBOURNE VICTORY 2 (Enza Barilla, Katie Thorlakson) bt PERTH GLORY 0 at Etihad Stadium.
And finally over in Adelaide, ADELAIDE UNITED 0 drew with NEWCASTLE JETS 0 at Hindmarsh Stadium. So the first stalemate of the season, I'm pretty sure there was only one last year? Between a 10-women Adelaide and Canberra United? (and wasn't that the worst possible game to show on TV last year). But anyway, it seems both teams had a handful of chances, hopefully they will both start scoring next week.
