Liberty A-League report: Hecher strike secures brilliant Roar win over City

Liberty A-League report: Hecher strike secures brilliant Roar win over City

Mariel Hecher struck a decisive away goal against Melbourne City for the second season running as Brisbane Roar bounced back to form with a terrific 1-0 win in the Liberty A-League on Thursday.

Hecher intelligently converted Shea Connors’ cross in the 26th minute to give the Roar a deserved lead which they bravely protected for over an hour at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex.

Goalkeeper Isabella Shuttleworth shone at the other end to help secure a clean sheet on her first professional start, with impressive performances across the board contributing to a well-earned third win of the campaign.

Brisbane will look to make it two from two this coming Monday when Canberra United return to Perry Park for a 6:05pm kick-off.

GOALS

Brisbane Roar | Mariel Hecher (26′)

Cannon Clough’s quick-thinking throw-in sends Connors away down the left. The attacker breaks into the box and crosses for Hecher, who expertly guides the ball home with a difficult volleyed finish.
