2024 CTL Girls Team of the Week: Round 6

OAKLEIGH Chargers and Gold Coast Suns Academy both had big wins on the weekend and were rewarded with an equal league-high four representatives in our Coates Talent League Girls Team of the Week for Round 6.

Of the 14 teams in action, 12 featured in the side, with eight have multiple players in the 24-strong squad. This week’s captain is of course our Player of the Week, Maggie Mahony after 37 disposals and four goals.

She was one of four Chargers alongside Chloe Bown and Bailee Martin who combined for six goals, as well as hard-running midfielder Sarah Poustie who was named out on the wing in this team. Also up forward is a couple of Suns Academy members who kicked seven goals between them in Alannah Welsh and Dekota Baron.

Ruck Havana Harris slots into that starting role, while Mia Salisbury makes it onto the bench. Alongside her on the interchange are sole representatives Zoe Hargreaves and Lou Painter who were squeezed out of the midfield this week due to the strength on-ball.

First time Team of the Week representative Nalu Brothwell is also on the interchange, in the side with Dandenong Stingrays teammate Jemma Reynolds. Reynolds flanks Gippsland Power star Ash Centra who completes the front six after another 34-disposal and two-goal game, with fellow Power talent Ella Stoddart named on the bench.

The last interchange player is Sandringham Dragons’ winger Scout Howden, who along with Top 10 talent Sophie McKay are their side’s Round 6 representatives. On the other wing to Poustie and next to McKay is Lions Academy’s Isabella McDonough who kicked three goals in her side’s win over Calder Cannons.

McDonough’s teammate Laura Roy was named in defence, as was the dominant ball-winner on teh day in Chloe Baker-West, who accumulated 42 disposals in the loss, a round-high. In the back pocket is Western Jets defender Lou-Lou Field, with both her and midfielder Sierra Grieves making the side.

Rounding out the squad are a couple of Rebels in Millie Lang and Isabella Davies who have both been named at half-back, while the sole Tasmanian representative in Mackenzie Williams slots in at full-back. Her Devils teammate Mischa Barwin is one of three emergencies alongside Mia Geere (Lions Academy) and Sienna Tallariti (Oakleigh Chargers).
