Westfield Matildas in action: Westfield W-League season wrap

Brisbane Roar secured the regular season title but several Westfield Matildas stars still have Westfield W-League success in their sights ahead of the Finals Series.

Here, we review just some of the outstanding achievements managed by Australia's best throughout the 2017/18 season.


An inaugural Roar squad member, Brisbane's inspirational skipper was as consistent as ever in leading the charge to a third premiership.

Her leadership at the back enabled the likes of Hayley Raso and Emily Gielnik to shine at the other end and will be essential to her side's bid to win their first championship since 2010/11.

The influential midfielder has continued her happy knack of big goals this term and Brisbane will hope that continues in this year's decider, although they'll need to get past Melbourne City first.

Carpenter last week swept Canberra United's awards night to cap an incredible first season with the club.

The 17-year-old defender scooped the Player of the Year and Supporters' Player of the Year gongs, having quickly become a vital cog under coach Heather Garriock.

Arnold helped Roar sew up the premiership on Sunday and could soon be in line for another honour.

The 23-year-old is a clear contender to secure her third Goalkeeper of the Year award after recording the most clean sheets (six) and conceding the fewest goals (12) throughout the campaign.

Williams will meet Arnold in the first week of the Finals Series on the back of another high-quality campaign.

The experienced shot-stopper and reigning Goalkeeper of the Year kept her fifth clean sheet in the 3-0 win over Newcastle that booked City's place in the top four.

Lydia Williams

Simon's ability to adjust to a variety of attacking roles has been on full display during a superb individual season.

A noted goal-scorer, she more often turned provider in laying on four assists and creating a league-high 39 chances.

Kyah Simon

Though the Sky Blues narrowly missed out on top spot, Lisa De Vanna's first season at Sydney FC has been an undoubted success.

The explosive striker hit five goals to be her side's equal leading scorer and remains in the hunt for a fourth championship with a fourth different club.

Roar's red-hot season wouldn't have been possible without Gorry pulling the strings.

The gun midfielder notched a massive 717 passes during the regular season, second only to City's Lauren Barnes, and lies at the heart of Roar's championship hopes.

Newcastle are back in the Finals Series for the first time since the competition's inaugural season and it's no surprise they've managed it on van Egmond's return.

The classy midfielder masterminded her team's ascension to the top four, scoring a brace in the big Round 13 win over Canberra that completed Jets' rise.
