W-League Preview: Round 8 features full slate for Dash contingent

Clare Polkinghorne and Brisbane Roar look to climb the W-League ladder as they search for their third victory in four games on Thursday. Brisbane will host Western Sydney Wanderers who have lost four of their last five games.  

Sofia Huerta and Sydney FC travel west to face Perth Glory in a top-four clash on Friday. Huerta scored her first goal of the season in Sydney’s 5-2 victory over Adelaide United last week. Sydney FC have outscored their opponents 10-3 in their last two games after starting the season winning one of their first four games.  

Amber Brooks, Veronica Latsko and Adelaide United look to bounce back from their first loss of the season on Friday as they host the first-place Melbourne Victory. Latsko tallied two goals last Thursday to match Sam Kerr and Natasa Dowie with six goals and first place for the W-League golden boot race. Brooks and Adelaide will look to contain one of the most productive front lines – Melbourne have scored 12 goals in six games this season.  

Kyah Simon and Melbourne City FC return to league play on Saturday after a bye week to host Canberra United. With a victory, City can climb into a playoff spot and build on a two-game unbeaten streak.  

The Brisbane Roar FC and Sydney FC matches will be streamed live on ESPN +.
