Karly began her footballing career at local club Monaro Panthers, and her meteoric rise hit another peak ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup as she was called up to replace the injured Laura Alleway ahead of the tournament.

Roestbakken excelled, coming on in injury time of the win against Brazil and playing a full 90 minutes in the crucial final pool game against Jamaica.
