Glory get Victory in Season Opener

Perth Glory Women has kicked-off its Westfield W-League campaign on a high, after a 2-1 away win against Melbourne Victory thanks to goals from Caitlin Foord and Samantha Kerr.

Melbourne struck first with a goal from Laura Spiranovic in the 9th minute, but just before half time Caitlin Foord equalized, combining with Samantha Kerr for the first Glory goal of the campaign.

The Matildas duo linked up again in the 69th minute, this time Kerr providing the finishing touch after a nice cutback by Foord.

After the match, Kerr credited Foord as the driving force for the team’s win.

“I’ve played with her quite a bit, which helps. She was in top form today. She was the man of the match for me.”

The two will look to form a dynamic attacking partnership once again next weekend when the team returns home to take on Newcastle Jets Women at Ashfield Reserve, kicking off at 4pm.
