It was a winless weekend for the Western Sydney Wanderers with the red and blacks’ three teams losing by a combined score of 12-3.

The W-League team ended their disappointing season with a 4-1 loss to Newcastle Jets on Saturday night. 

A spectacular Elizabeth Addo outstretched volley was the highlight for the visitors who extended their unwanted streak to 42 straight away matches without a clean sheet. Tess Tamplin, Tara Andrews, Teigan Collister and Cortnee Vine netted for the home team in a clinical display.

Meanwhile, the young Wanderers quest for consecutive Y-League titles were dashed by the Brisbane Roar 3-1 at ANZ Stadium. First half goals from man-of-the-match Shannon Brady and Daniel Leck set up the win with Tass Mourdoukoutas scoring a consolation goal for the Wanderers who finished on top of group B.

Later that night,  Liverpool boy Mitchell Duke had a memorable Wanderers debut in an otherwise miserable night for the A-League team.

The Liverpool Rangers junior scored within 19 seconds of his introduction with a flying header finding the back of the net. It was the only bright spot for the Wanderers who lost 5-1 to Newcastle.

"I am pretty happy having my first touch as a goal off the bench, I just wish it was in better circumstances though because getting five past us is just not good enough," Duke said.
