She's the hottest striker in the League at the moment. 10 goals in 8 games including a hattrick in Round 7 followed up by a brace in Round 8. Central Coast striker Michelle Heyman has not had it easy and you get the feeling that it has made the success all the sweeter.
Heyman netted the 200th goal in the W League this season and surpassed Leena Khamis' season one haul of 8. With their finals berth secured the next mission for the Mariners front woman is to take her side all the way to the W-League title.

A female football friend of one mine once said “if you haven’t done one knee in your career, you’re not trying hard enough!” It’s a distressing fact that female athletes are close to ten times more likely to injure their ACL and require a knee reconstruction than their male counterparts. In fact the WA Women’s Premier League this season, the eventually winners Balcatta SC had at least 4 players who were required to go under the knife.
Following that adage, you can’t accuse Canberra United’s Caitlin Munoz of not trying. The United and Matildas’ striker last season went under the knife making it the third time in her career.
