PINT and Tahs remain undefeated in NTFLW

PINT and Waratah remain undefeated after seven rounds in the Northern Territory Football League (NTFL) Women’s Premier League, setting the pace for the 2022/23 season. Waratah is yet to have a bye and has won seven straight games with a massive percentage of 585.98, while PINT sits second with 892.45 per cent.

Darwin Buffaloes are third with four wins from six games, having lost to the top two sides, followed by Tiwi Bombers (fourth) and St Mary’s (fifth), albeit with low percentages. Nightcliff has won just two games in six matches, but has a greater percentage than the aforementioned two teams with 139.67 per cent. Palmerston Magpies are also on eight points, but have the second worst percentage of 41.47. Southern Districts (one win) and the winless Wanderers round out the nine-team competition.

After seven rounds, six of the top 10 leading goalkickers are from the top two sides, with PINT’s Steph Lawrence leading the way with 19 goals in five games at an average of 3.8 per match. Queen Ants teammates Casey Morris (10) and Rhiarna Myatt (eight) are also inside the top 10, while for Waratah, Jenna Singh and Annabel Kievit are second and third respectively with 18 and 14 goals. Kierra Zerafa (nine) also makes the list.

From the remaining seven sides, 16-year-old young gun Tatyana Perry has slotted 12 in five games for Palmerson, while Nightcliff’s Cassie McWilliam (11) is fifth overall. Darwin Buffettes duo Johanna Gregory and Lee-anne Allia also make it inside the top 10 courtesy of their eight goals in five and three games respectively. Sitting just outside the top 10 on seven goals for the season are Darwin’s Amy Chittick, Nightcliff’s Mickayla Ward and Southern Districts’ Sophie Berry.

PINT vs. Southern Districts
Nightcliff vs. Darwin Buffettes
Wanderers vs. Tiwi Bombers
Palmerston Magpies vs. St Mary’s
Bye: Waratah

With the teams ranked second to fifth facing off against the bottom four sides, there is a huge possibility that by the end of Round 8, an eight-point gap will form from fifth to sixth. With Waratah having a bye, just one round will remain before every team has played eight games (in Round 9) and sets up a likely all-undefeated clash between Waratah and PINT in that round.
