Sarah Carroll looking to end Perth Glory's Grand Final losing streak

Sarah Carroll
Sarah Carroll has lost two previous Grand Finals with Perth Glory.

Perth Glory defender Sarah Carroll has already endured enough football heartbreak but it will all be forgotten if she can finally get her hands on a W-League title.

Carroll played in Glory's two losing Grand finals -- a 3-1 loss to Canberra in 2014 and a 2-0 loss to Melbourne City in 2017.

Perth started hot favourites in both matches and are aiming to break their title drought in Saturday's Grand Final against Sydney FC at Jubilee Stadium.

Carroll has endured a season to forget, suffering a serious...

Caitlin Foord ready to banish W-League Grand Final demons

Last year's W-League Grand Final was a miserable affair for Sydney FC forward Caitlin Foord, even before she watched her team lose.

The Matildas star ruptured a ligament in her right foot during last year's semifinal which ruled her out of the 2018 decider and kept her sidelined for several months.

A frustrated spectator at the best of times, watching her teammates slump to a 2-0 defeat to Melbourne City only added to the personal pain of her foot injury.

Now 12 months later Foord's situation before...

Sydney FC can avenge their 2018 W-League Grand Final heartbreak next week after their semifinal win over Brisbane.

The Sky Blues booked a home grand final against Perth with a 2-1 win over the Roar on Sunday night at Dolphin Stadium in Brisbane's north. Goals in either half to Caitlin Foord and Sofia Huerta secured the win despite a late strike by the Roar's Japanese star Yuki Nagasato which made for a tense final few minutes.

Ecstatic Sydney coach Ante Juric said he was delighted to be getting...

Matildas' Emily van Egmond sidelined with ankle injury

Australia destroyed Brazil to win the inaugural Tournament of Nations.
Australia and Newcastle midfielder Emily van Egmond could be out for six weeks.

Matildas linchpin Emily van Egmond has been put on ice for the remainder of the W-League season after an ankle injury. The Newcastle captain rolled and sprained her ankle on Wednesday at training, suffering ligament damage.

The injury is terrible news for the eighth-placed Jets ahead of Saturday's must-win match against Sam Kerr's visiting Perth. And it's not great either for the national team with June's World Cup on the horizon.

The midfielder is predicted to be out for six weeks. That suggested...

Sam Kerr helps Perth rescue point in eight-goal W-League thriller

Perth's Sam Kerr is the W-League's first marquee player
Perth's Sam Kerr is the W-League's first marquee player.

Matildas superstar Sam Kerr found her magic touch just when it was needed as Perth somehow conjured three goals in the final eight minutes on Sunday to secure an extraordinary 4-4 W-League draw with Canberra United.

Kerr's maiden outing as the competition's first marquee player was shaping up as a frustrating one, with Canberra seemingly cruising to a comfortable home victory against a Glory side down to 10 players.

Kerr set up Alyssa Mautz for what seemed a consolation goal, but 16-year-old rookie...
