Our girls had a productive q2 in warm conditions. 6 v 34. Moody in the middle of the ground and Good up forward providing a strong contest. Goss, Skepper, Sherar playing well. Alongside the veterans Dal Pos and Vescio👏🏼

Regroup, hydrate, and go again. Hopefully their stamina endures the conditions.

53 pt win to our gals. Great stuff. Picked up the lost % from last week.
Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

Good win by the girls.
Did what they needed to do against IMO the worst opposition in the league.

I doubt we'll see another win like that for the year.....but i'm happy to be proven wrong.

Hopefully get Kez back soon.

The opposition may have been below par but that's still a good win.

The Weagles went down to Freo by 8 points in the first round and the Suns got hold of them by 73 points last week.  Interestingly, our first round victims downed Collingwood by two goals and I think that we may be more competitive than the North result suggested.

Great efforts by Skepper, Hill, Good, Moody and McKay, and we've found a player in Erone Fitzpatrick.

I think that Bucky has now got the mix right with Moody.  She is too good around the ground to be stagnating in the forward line and too much of a threat not to spend time as a forward.

Moody and Good combined and alternated roles to advantage. Some of the ruck taps went as far as a kick. Although I've no idea about their opponents.
