Former Western NSW Mariners junior Ellie Carpenter has delivered on the world stage once again, helping set up the first of the Matildas' six goals in a big win against Thailand on Monday night.
Played at Campbelltown Stadium, the Australian national women's side was struggling to find a goal in the AFC Women's Olympic Qualifying match until Carpenter whipped in a dangerous cross into the box, which found Emily van Egmond, who's composed volley finish gave the Matildas a 1-0 lead in the 45th minute.
From there the flood gates opened, with van Egmond striking again three minutes into injury time to double the advantage - the assist again coming from the vision and delivery of Carpenter.
In the second-half, the Matildas would go on with the job with four goals, including van Egmond's third, a double from Kyah Simon and one Hayley Raso.
Matildas play China on Thursday, to decide which team tops the qualifying group.
