Sky Blue's Kerr lifts Glory into 1st-place tie
Sky Blue FC forward Sam Kerr certainly did her part in Perth Glory in moving into a tie for first place in the Westfield W-League in Australia this past weekend.
Kerr struck for two goals to help Perth (4-1-1, 13 points) to a 4-1 triumph over Adelaide United as the team leveled itself with Canberra United.
Kerr, who has five goals this season, connected in the 34th minute, scoring from 18 yards for a 1-0 lead. Her second goal of the match came in the 66th minute to give Perth a 3-1 advantage.
Sky Blue midfielder Nikki Stanton played virtually the entire match. She started and was substituted in the third minute of second-half stoppage time.
