NO WIN FOR GLORY
Sky Blue's Kerr, Stanton lose in Australia
Sky Blue FC players Sam Kerr and Nikki Stanton returned to Westfield W-League play in Australia over the weekend, as their Perth Glory side (1-1-1) fell to the Newcastle Jets, 1-0.
Kerr created several chances as the Perth captain started and played the full 90 minutes. Also playing a full game was Stanton, who fed a ball to Kerr in the 19th minute. Kerr nearly headed into the goal.
The difference in the match turned out to be a converted penalty kick in the 48th minute by forward Jen Hoy, playing for Newcastle on loan from the Chicago Red Stars.
