GALLERY: Sky Blues Progress To W-League Grand Final
Check out Jaime Castaneda's shots from our Westfield W-League Semi-Final win.
Sydney FC progressed to their fifth Westfield W-League Grand Final after seeing off the challenge of a gritty Newcastle Jets at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.
The Sky Blues got off to a fantastic start, taking the lead through Foord’s effort, and doubled their advantage before half time thanks to Ledbrook’s strike, with the Jet’s situation compounded when Brewer was sent off in first half injury time.
The Jets rallied in the second half and clawed a goal back off a corner, Gilliland scoring a back post header, before Tara Andrews’ late equaliser forced the match into extra time.
Persistence from the Sky Blues paid dividend in the extra 30 minutes, with Lisa De Vanna eventually scoring the winner following a swift counter attack, sparking joyous scenes around the ground.
