Westfield Matildas in action: Westfield W-League Round 6 wrap

Returning to club action after their back-to-back wins against China, several Westfield Matildas stars carried on their fine form in Round 6 of the Westfield W-League.

Here’s how some of Australia’s best performed this week.


Fresh from being named the AFC Women’s Player of the Year on Wednesday night, Kerr capped another fantastic week by scoring Perth Glory's winner away to Western Sydney.

The star forward showed off her scoring instinct as she capitalised on a fine ball from Rachel Hill and calmly rounded Wanderers goalkeeper Jada Whyman to find the back of an empty net.

De Vanna has a habit of unleashing her best in the big matches and she delivered again in the Big Blue on Saturday.

The Westfield Matildas co-captain scored a sensational solo goal to seal a 2-0 win for Sydney FC, dribbling from inside her own half and breezing past Melbourne Victory defenders in breathtaking fashion.

Looking to continue the form which saw her net a stunning goal from 30 yards in Geelong, Simon endured a mixed afternoon for Melbourne City on Sunday.

The in-form forward repeatedly knocked on the door against Adelaide United and looked certain to bag a deserved goal, but her 89th minute penalty was saved by Sarah Willacy as the two sides shared the points in a 1-1 draw.

Kyah Simon

Second only to Michelle Heyman in terms of all-time Westfield W-League goals, Butt got one back on her international teammate by netting the winner in a 1-0 victory over Heyman's Canberra United.

The midfielder's strike sealed her side's fourth win in five matches, enough to join Perth Glory at the top with 12 points.

Tameka Butt

Butt might have received credit for the goal but it was Gorry's superb pass which created the chance.

And with a game-high 119 touches, three clearances and a passing accuracy of 84.9%, Gorry was instrumental in helping the visitors to three vital points.
