The goals came from Michelle Heyman - her 62nd in 100 W-League apperances - and Elise Thorsnes, the late strikes leaving the Wanderers little time to respond.

Canberra currently sit sixth in the league, occupying the last finals spot five points above Melbourne Victory in seventh.

Melbourne Victory also won their match, but Canberra’s three points retain the five-point gap leading into the final three rounds.
