ICYMI | 2024 VFLW: Round 13

THE penultimate round of the VFLW season gave us a few answers about what the post season will look like, but not all of them.

Williamstown (4.4.28) defeated Essendon (1.4.10)

Williamstown have one hand on the minor premiership after defeating Essendon by three goals.

After a low scoring first quarter from both sides, the Seagulls performed better in the second term to establish the buffer they were able to maintain for the rest of the match.

Eliza Straford was the only one on the ground to kick multiple goals, while for the Bombers Emily Tassiopoulos had a really strong game in the clearance department.

Geelong (1.1.7) lost to Port Melbourne (7.12.54)

Port Melbourne ended their losing run in a big way, comfortably downing Geelong.

Geelong failed to score after quarter time as the Borough kicked away to record an important win in the context of their season.

Courteney Bromage and Olivia Barton both kicked two majors each for the Borough, while Ava Seton also had a really impressive game.

Meanwhile for Geelong Abby Favell saw plenty of the ball, while Lily Jordan laid a whopping 15 tackles.

North Melbourne (7.4.46) defeated Box Hill (5.7.37)

North Melbourne further entrenched itself in the top four after defeating Box Hill.

The Kangaroos lead all game and ultimately thwarted a Hawks’ final quarter fightback to take the win.

Nyakoat Dojiok returned to form with a big haul of three goals for the Roos, while Renee Tierney and Alana Barba were busy around the ball.

Meanwhile for the Hawks Danika Spamer had a productive game in the clearance department, while Rosie Dillon also saw plenty of the ball.

Western Bulldogs (8.6.54) defeated Casey (3.3.21)

The Western Bulldogs got back on the winners list with a big win over Casey.

Casey actually held a narrow lead at the opening break, but essentially did not score in the second term as the Bulldogs wrestled control, and again kept the Dees scoreless in the final term to buff out the margin.

Key targets Mary Sandral and Mia-Rae Clifford led the way on the goal kicking front for the Bulldogs, while Leah Swain defied her position’s stereotypes to lead the clearance tally for the Dees.

Collingwood (3.7.25) defeated Darebin (2.4.16)

Collingwood kept its season alive while officially ending Darebin’s faint finals hopes after defeating the Falcons yesterday afternoon.

Darebin was actually the stronger of the sides in the first half, but Collingwood came out on a mission after half time and after a really strong third term held on in the last to take the win.

Jordan Ivey and Kaitlyn Day were really dangerous in attack for the Pies, while Grace Wake was really impressive in defence and Angelica Gogos stood tall in midfield for Darebin.

Carlton (10.17.77) defeated Southern Saints (0.2.2)

Carlton has kept its season alive after a massive win over the Saints.

Off the back of some big games from their included AFLW stars, the Blues were already 43 points up at half time and just grew from there in the second half.

Mia Austin lead the scoring front for the Blues with three goals to her name, while Abbie McKay had a strong game in the clearance department.

Meanwhile Charlotte Ryan and Deanna Jolliffe both saw plenty of the ball for the Saints.
