W-League: Glory still unbeaten in six after five goal thriller

Perth Glory scored twice in the final 10 minutes to secure a crucial 3-2 win over Melbourne Victory at Dorrien Gardens on Sunday – and a place in next month’s Westfield W-League finals series.

Despite taking the lead in the 50th minute when skipper Sam Kerr headed home her ninth goal of the season, Glory conceded two own goals within eight minutes to give Victory the advantage on the scoreboard.

Victory looked set to claim a second major scalp in as many weeks, having stunned Brisbane Roar 4-1 last Monday, after consecutive deflections off Arianna Romero and Alyssa Mautz in the 52nd and 60th minutes respectively. 

Falling behind sparked Glory into action in front of the boisterous 578-strong crowd and the team was eventually rewarded when Kerr was brought down inside the penalty box in the 80th minute.
