Round 16: Women's Football Review

Division One

Saturday, July 30, 2022

East Brighton 4.5-29 V Bentleigh 1.11-17

An important game to kick off the last round of the home and away season, Bentleigh needing the win to lock away their finals hopes otherwise relying on Narre South Saints too loose.

The Demons controlled the ball in their forward line for most of the game, managing an impressive twelve scoring attempts.

First year Vampire Charli Hibbert has continued a great season being a crucial part of their win against Bentleigh, kicking three goals alongside one from Vice Captain Remi Van Denderen.

While this was a great win to end the season unfortunately the Vampires have not qualified for Finals, Bentleigh has made it through and will come up against Murrumbeena next week.

Frankston Dolphins 4.4-28 V Murrumbeena 2.7-19

Murrumbeena had solidified their spot in the top four and were on the hunt for the cherry on top of their home and away season, a win against the up-and-coming Frankston Dolphins.

Murrumbeena looked like they may push back for the win in the final quarter but just fell short, windy conditions and the silky Frankston Dolphins getting the better of them.

For the second week in a row the Dolphins scored a last-minute goal to keep the opposition on their toes, this time propelling them to victory.

The pressure of their first season in division one has created a diamond, the Dolphins having a great second half of the year, but it was not enough to get them into the top four.

Endeavour Hills 0.0-59 V Hallam 0.0-7


Casey Thunder (1) 9.5-59 V Narre South Saints 1.1-7

While Casey Thunder didn’t have to worry about their spot in finals, Narre South Saints need this win to push their way into the top four.

The Saints put on the pressure early on keeping Casey Thunder to four goals and managing one of their own, Jayde Smith setting herself up for a great performance in the forward line.

The reigning division two best and fairest winner had a strong game and only seems to get better, Eden Tone kicking two goals and appearing all over the field.

While Bentleigh lost and left the finals window open for the saints, loosing here meant that their impressive inaugural season had come to an end.

Division Two

Saturday, July 30, 2022

Clayton 10.11-71 V Moorabbin/ St Paul's McKinnon 3.5-23

Clayton have held on to their spot as fourth on the ladder after a solid win over the Kanga-Dogs, the Claydie’s putting on a show with 21 scoring attempts.

A few familiar names crossed over to help Moorabbin/ St Paul's McKinnon filed their side this week with Lydia Wilson, Imogen Smillie, Michelle Durrant and Nikita Miller crossing over from South Yarra for the day.

Clayton had some big goal scorers amongst their own with Stephanie Sandoval kicking four and Evangelia Nikolitsis kicking two.

Clayton is now well on their way to finals and will come up against Lyndale in the Semi Finals, the Kanga-Dogs unfortunately finish their inaugural season winless but ready for 2023.

Black Rock 10.11-71 V Skye 1.2-8

Black Rock have pushed themselves to the top after their win against Casey Thunder, while there are still challenges ahead in their finals campaign Skye was ready to give them a run for their money.

While the scoreboard didn’t light up for Skye, Melissa Millar gave it a fair crack with an impressive goal early in the game.

The leading goal scorer ladder is getting tight, especially amongst teammates at Jets with Skye Nisbet kicking four to take her total for the year to 25.

Black Rock now head into finals on top of the ladder and Skye unfortunately see the end of their season but prepare for 2023.

Sunday, July 31, 2022

Casey Thunder (2) 2.4-16 V Lyndale 6.11-47

Lyndale have made a big statement going into the finals with a win over second placed Casey Thunder, closing the distance between the two on the ladder by another win.

Lyndale made 17 attempts at goal maintaining control of the ball for the majority of the time, a big effort from their defence to lock the ball out when possible.

Filiz Lang had a great game for Casey Thunder on the day, efforts from Lang and Tracey Mcminimee were unfortunately not enough to come away with the win.

This win may have given Lyndale the right spark for their finals campaign, seeing how deep they can make it this year especially if they meet Casey Thunder again.
