ICYMI | 2024 VFLW: Round 10

ROUND 10 of the VFL Women’s season saw two big defining characteristics in its results – big margins and lots of the visiting sides taking the chocolates.

Collingwood (1.3.9) lost to North Melbourne (1.8.14)

North Melbourne moved into the top six after a tight win over Collingwood.

Neither side could manage a goal in the first half, and ultimately it was North Melbourne’s inaccurate kicking that was their savior.

Tahlia Meier and Maggie Mahony were the two goal scorers for the match, while Audrey Rhodes landed a whopping 18 tackles in the win.

Port Melbourne (3.9.27) lost to Essendon (6.3.39)

Essendon bounced back from its Round 9 result in a big way, defeating the reigning premiers by two goals.

Port Melbourne got the better of the starts to the game, but as the game progressed the Bombers wrestled control and kicked away to the win.

Olivia Manfre was the only multiple goal kicker with three to her name, while Sophie Molan saw plenty of the ball for the Bombers.

Meanwhile for the Borough Eloise Ashley-Cooper and Lauren Caruso were tackle machines, nailing 12 and 10 tackles respectively.

Carlton (3.0.18) lost to Box Hill (12.6.78)

Box Hill bounced back from last week in a big way, comfortably defeating Carlton.

Despite the big final margin, it was only 11 points the difference at the main break, but things took a turn in the third term where Box Hill kicked five goals to none to open up the game.

Grace Matser (three goals) and Mietta Kendall (two goals) led the way on the goal kicking front for the Hawks, while for the Blues Isla Baldwin and Asha Turner Funk saw plenty of the ball.

Western Bulldogs (5.4.34) defeated Southern Saints (3.6.24)

The Western Bulldogs maintained their safety barrier in the top three after a 10 point win over the Saints.

The Saints were the ones to lead early, before the Bulldogs kicked into gear and took the lead.

Keeley Hardingham was impressive in the clearance department for the Bulldogs, while Isadora McLeay was a tackle machine.

Meanwhile for the Saints Chloe Hunt was the only multiple goal kicker of the game with two, while Charlotte Ryan had a strong clearance game.

Darebin (7.7.49) defeated Casey (4.4.28)

Darebin picked up its third win in a row and moved off the bottom of the ladder after a comfortable win over Casey.

The Falcons jumped out to an early lead, and in perhaps a sign of the side’s development this season they withstood Casey’s fightback in the second term and put the foot down even further in the second half.

Monique DeMatteo starred in front of goal for the Falcons with three majors to her name, while Angelica Gogos and Riley Christgoergl also impressing.

Meanwhile for the Dees Niamh O’Neill and Ally Kirkwood were among their best and really tried to lift their side.

Williamstown (13.11.89) defeated Geelong (0.3.3)

The weekend ended with a massive win to Williamstown, with the Seagulls far too strong for Geelong.

The Seagulls were already four goals up at quarter time, and the margin just grew from their as the Cats just could not get the shots on goal away.

Teagan Brett (four goals), Sharnie Whiting (two goals) and Molly Simpson (two goals) led the way for the Seagulls in attack, while for Geelong Lily Jordan and Abbey McDonald both saw plenty of the ball.
