W-League: Scalzi at the treble

Adelaide United have defeated Newcastle Jets 3-2 in the W-League thanks to a Sandra Scalzi hat-trick at Hindmarsh Stadium.

Scalzi netted the opener after just 11 minutes, but the Jets hit back seven minutes before half-time thanks to Stacy Day.

But Scalzi put the home side back into the lead a minute after the restart, and completed her hat-trick four minutes later.

Newcastle grabbed a second in the 89th minute thanks to veteran defender Cheryl Salisbury, but Adelaide held on to record their first win after starting with a 4-1 thumping at the hands of Queensland Roar in round 1.
