W-League’s fan-voted poll for Goal of the Month has closed for December, and Libby Copus-Brown’s debut strike against Sydney FC has come out on top.
The wonder-goal – which curled around Sydney’s Aubrey Bledsoe in the Newcastle Jet’s 2-1 defeat at Kogarah Oval at the end of last year – scored a major 66 per cent of the online poll, beating out Adelaide United’s Ella Mastrantonio and Canberra United’s Rhoda Mulaudzi.
Copus-Brown’s goal against Sydney was her first in the top flight competition, making her one of only a handful of players to have bagged themselves the best goal of the month with their very first haul.
The Jets continue their potential miracle run to the W-League finals this weekend when they come up against Melbourne City away from home. The match will begin at 7.50pm on Sunday, January 20.
