Micah’s magic touch
STAR KEEPER HAS SIGHTS ON LOS ANGELES
ST MARYS goalkeeper Teagan Micah had a standout game in the Western Sydney Wanderers’ final match of the season on the weekend.
The Wanderers W-League side saved the best for last with a win over Perth Glory in the final game of the season at Popondetta Park in Mt Druitt.
The Wanderers secured seventh place on the ladder with a 2-0 win over Perth. The home side dominated most of the first half, with Erica Halloway taking multiple shots at goal but unable to convert.
Perth counterattacked but were no match for Micah, who denied their best efforts time and time again.
The Wanderers clinched the win in the last four min- utes of the match, with Holloway and Hannah Beard scoring impressive goals.
Micah, 18, was credited as having one of her best games of the season.
“We had a good chance and so did Perth – we gave it to them and it was really good to get the win,” the teenager said.
“We had a tough run home. We had a few tough games towards the end but we did better than last year”.
Micah said she hoped to be back at the Wanderers next year but was also looking at heading to play overseas.
“I am looking at going to Los Angeles to play on a scholarship at UCLA; I want to study physiotherapy there as well,” she said.
Western Sydney Wanderers goalkeeper Teagan Micah puts her body on the line against Melbourne City earlier in the season.
