The Newcastle Jets have recorded a breakthrough win in Perth, beating Glory 2-1 at Dorrien Gardens on Saturday night.
It was the Jets' first win of the season and first victory in Perth since the W-League began. In 10 previous exchanges there, Newcastle had drawn five times and lost five.
The result elevated the visitors to four points after four rounds and fifth spot on the competition standings and should provide a confidence boost as they prepare to host defending champions Sydney in Newcastle on December 15.
The Jets led 1-0 at the break after Nicki Flannery had produced her first goal for Newcastle in the 25th minute. Tara Andrews ran at Perth's defence then passed to Teigan Collister on the left, whose cross found Flannery in the box to score with a left-footed volley.
Andrews then found a goal of her own directly after the break, slamming the ball into the top of the net after playing a one-two with Gema Simon in the 46th minute.
Perth hit back through Spanish import Celia Jimenez, who buried her shot from just inside the 18-yard box.
Andrews and Flannery both had chances to extend the scoreline late in the match. Flannery hit the far post in the 75th minute in a one-on-one with Perth goalkeeper Eliza Campbell. In the 80th minute, a diving Campbell saved Andrews' spot kick when the Jets were awarded a penalty for a handball in the box.
