In Case You Missed It: AFLW Round 4 2023

ROUND 4 of the AFL Women’s really had it all. Upsets, come from behind wins, nail biters, big wins. It was a real smorgasbord of results.

Hawthorn (1.5.11) lost to Melbourne (10.10.70)

  • Melbourne kept its undefeated run in tact with a solid 59 point win over Hawthorn to begin the weekend.
  • Eden Zanker starred and debutant Aimee Mackin looked right at home as the Dees really kicked away in the second half to boost the margin.

GWS (5.7.37) lost to Adelaide (16.10.106)

  • Adelaide kept its undefeated record in tact with a huge win over the Giants.
  • In what turned out to be the Crows’ highest ever score, it was not all their own way in the match, particularly early as the Giants showed some real promise and got within two points of the Crows.

Carlton (6.4.40) lost to Richmond (7.5.47)

  • Richmond clawed to its third come-from-behind win for the season, finding its groove to overcome a scrappy Carlton side
  • Carlton snatched the lead in term two and kept Richmond goalless between the second and third quarters, but was unable to withstand the Tigers’ territorial advantage thereafter.

Port (5.12.42) lost to Geelong (11.4.70)

  • Geelong bounced back from last week’s loss with a confidence boosting win over a resurgent Port Adelaide.
  • Geelong got off to a fast start, which ultimately helped them prevail.

Sydney (5.4.34) defeated West Coast (2.9.21)

  • Sydney picked up its second ever win with a hard fought win over West Coast.
  • It was not easy at times for the Swans, but some Emma Swanson magic in front of goals was not enough as Chloe Molloy and her magician skills in front of goal helped the home side prevail.

North (5.3.33) lost to Brisbane (5.5.35)

  • North Melbourne suffered its first loss of the season and ever in Tasmania, going down to Brisbane by a mere two points.
  • The Kangaroos had control early, but Brisbane fought back, thanks largely in part to a stellar third term from Ally Anderson, to take the lead in the second half and ultimately hold on for the win.

Essendon (7.8.50) defeated Fremantle (4.6.30)

  • Essendon bounced back from last week’s loss with a confidence boosting win over Fremantle.

  • A five-goal final term sees Saints stun Pies for first Season 8 AFLW win in a huge upset
