Matildas at Home: The Cooney-Cross show highlights a big round

A mega week of games saw some unbelievable results in the A-League Women's.

Subsribe to Win Thin Banner

With all teams welcoming back their Commonwealth Bank Matildas, the national team players were in the thick of the action. 

The week started with Melbourne Victory's 1-0 win over Newcastle Jets. Kyra Cooney-Cross and Courtney Nevin were back into the starting line up for Victory.

In a tight contest, it took a Brooke Hendrix header off an Alana Murphy free kick for the visitors to take home the points. 

The race for finals heated up with Perth Glory claiming a 1-0 victory over Adelaide United. Mie Leth Jans' header opened the scoring with Fiona Worts' equaliser ruled out for offside. 

While Dylan Holmes tried to help her side find a legitimate goal, they fell short. 

On Friday night a bit of Kiwi history was made with Wellington Phoenix earning their first-ever win in the A-League Women's. Goals to Chloe Knott, Grace Jale, and a Canberra United own goal saw the Nix win in the nation's capital. 

Victory were back in action on the weekend, playing hosts to Western Sydney Wanderers. The home side was dominant in a 5-0 drubbing. 

It was the Cooney-Cross and Alex Chidiac show with the pair running the show in the middle of the park. Cooney-Cross was in a rich vein of form setting up Catherine Zimmerman and MelindaJ Barbieri before scoring a goal of her own. 

Zimmerman added a second after some lax defending from the Wanderers before Courtney Nevin capped off her birthday with a debut A-League goal.

Bryleeh Henry had some of Wanderers' best moments to get back into the game but they were overpowered by the Melbourne side. 

Emma Checker's Melbourne City beat Perth Glory 4-0. Rhianna Pollicina got things started for the visitors before Holly McNamara latched onto a long ball from Melissa Barbieri to score the second. 

A McNamara dink secured her a double before Hannah Wilkinson beat the 'keeper and put the icing on the cake. 

Adelaide United was in dreamland after an 8-2 triumph over Brisbane Roar. A five-goal haul from Fiona Worts highlighted what was a top-shelf performance from the Reds. Goals to Chelsie Dawber, Matilda McNamara and an own goal rounded out the result. 

Katrina Gorry was influential in getting the Roar on the board, she was responsible for setting up Shea Connors for both of Brisbane's goals in what was their worst ever A-League Women's defeat. 

And finally, Sydney FC continued their winning streak with a 1-0 win over the Jets. With Cortnee Vine and Remy Siemsen back in the starting XI, it was the latter who combined with Princess Ibini for the lone goal. 

With Charlie Rule and Jada Whyman once again strong in defence, the Sky Blues maintained their clean sheet record but not without some late controversy following a disallowed Jets goal in injury time.
