Glory ready for Syd­ney

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

PERTH Glory Women will next take on Syd­ney FC in the West­field W-League semi-fi­nals after go­ing down 2-1 to Can­berra United in their fi­nal reg­u­lar sea­son match at Vik­ing Park on the week­end.

Coach Jamie Harn­well said he was pleased with the game, de­spite the loss.

“The best thing about it was it was a com­pet­i­tive game,” he said.

“They were right in our faces, mak­ing it hard for us, which is what we will face in the fi­nals, so I was happy from that as­pect.”

Even with in­juries to goalscorer Sa­man­tha Kerr and goal­keeper Macken­zie Arnold, Harn­well is con­fi­dent Glory will be pre­pared for the clash with Syd­ney, at Perth Oval on De­cem­ber 14.

“We’ve been pre­par­ing for this semi-fi­nal for three weeks re­ally,” he said.

“Hope­fully Sam and Macca will be fine, but I’m con­fi­dent we’ve still got the team and qual­ity even if they’re not.”
