Super sub Annalise Rasmussen has fired Central Coast Mariners to a huge 1-0 victory over Wellington Phoenix at Industree Group Stadium.

With the first ever meeting between the Liberty A-League’s two newest teams heading for a goalless draw, Rasmussen slammed home the all-important winner in the 76th minute to secure all three points for the Mariners on Saturday evening.

It’s Gosford-born Rasumssen’s first goal in the competition, after initially joining the club as an 11-year-old through their NPL setup.

Rasmussen then signed with their women’s team as their inaugural player ahead of their return to the A-League Women’s competition this season.

The win extends the Mariners’ undefeated streak to three straight games, with the win being their first at home since their return.

A 96th minute equaliser from Hana Lowry has ensured Perth Glory’s unbeaten start to the Liberty A-League season continued, rescuing a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Melbourne Victory on Saturday evening.

Lowry fired home the opener in the 24th minute, stepping up and burying an inch-perfect free-kick to give the league leaders the advantage, before two late goals from Rachel Lowe saw Victory take the lead with minutes remaining.

However, the 20-year-old Glory midfielder would have other ideas, sending Macedonia Park into raptures with a last ditch equaliser in one of the games of the campaign so far.
