Adelaide United have bolstered their hopes for the W League final with a pivotal win, but the rain has ruined Sydney FC’s prospects of winning the small Premier League

The torrential rain that fell on Sydney on Saturday forced the Sky Blues home game against Melbourne Victory to be postponed and denied them the chance of a win that would have taken first place

It’s not yet clear when the rescheduled game will play, but it’s unlikely to be before this week’s finals

With second-placed Brisbane out of action in Round 13, Adelaide and Canberra United both gained ground with a win, beating Victory out of the top 4

On Sunday, Adelaide scored a goal from Olivia Price in the fourth minute but scored in front of a record crowd of 5159 spectators won a 3-1 home win over Western Sydney Wanderers

Isabel Hodgson was similar in 18 Minute and in the second half the gates of imports Maruschka Waldus and Fiona Worts secured the valuable victory, which brought them to third place behind Brisbane due to the goal difference

However, it was Adelaide’s last game and they have to wait nervously as both Canberra and Victory could land over them and bring United out of the top four

Canberra finished fourth after Michelle Heyman hit the mark again, beating Newcastle 1-0 away on Friday

Your tenth goal of the season in your 100th Game for United briefly brought them to third place, despite losing a place after Adelaide’s win

Canberra hit the wood several times and Newcastle goalkeeper Claire Coelho made some good saves to keep the goal line close

Only two points separate the second from the fifth, with Brisbane and Canberra each having one game and Victory two

In the other round of the 13th Round Melbourne City continued its revival in the late season and won 1-0 in last-placed Perth

A goal by Rhali Dobson in 67 Minute brought City two wins and almost certainly condemned Glory after a seventh consecutive defeat to the wooden spoon
