The sun brought out a weekend filled with adrenaline, winning streaks, and incredible goals.

The Monash Blues are on a five-game winning streak after a victorious home match on the weekend against Aquinas OC. Within the first quarter, it was anyone’s game, but the Blues came out with great determination, and on this occasion, Aquinas could not keep up, with 12-points between the scores when the final siren sounded. On an unsuccessful day trip for Aquinas, it was Cadhala Schmidli who stood out as their best player. Meg Dargan scored a goal with incredible accuracy, assisting her team in shortening the margin between the final scores.

Success could not have been achieved for the Blues, without the goal-kicking efforts Alice Peddle, Johannah Dallas and Molly Mcfarlane, as well as best-on-field Jacqueline Greer.

In round six, Aquinas will partake in a home match up against the noble North Brunswick and the Blues will do their best to protect their position in first place against the outstanding Old Yarra Cobras.

The St Bedes/Mentone Tigers had a triumphant outing to the home grounds of Richmond Central who were coming off a week with a bye. Bedes came into the game with strength and determination maintaining confidence throughout the entirety of the match scoring a total of 11 goals and 10 behinds with Richmond unfortunately unable to bounce back, attaining one behind.

Laura Amelung, Alanah Strode and Elisa Cantanzariti put on an outstanding goal-kicking performance with incredible accuracy, obtaining two goals each, alongside Bede’s best-on-field Olivia Steinfort. Can they make their way further up the ladder next round, up against the ladies from Brunswick?

With Richmond’s best, Laura Mckay, it is with hopes a win is in the near future as they come head-to-head with the mighty Mazenod next week.

Mazenod OC set off on a journey to Doncaster Reserve, the home of the Old Yarra Cobras. Unfortunately for the guests, playing in an unfamiliar environment did not prove helpful, but with goal-scorer Charlotte Skinner and Mazenods best Mikaela Buccella, they may have better luck in next week’s round against the ruthless Richmond Central.

It was another week of success for the Cobras, with Illiana Zafiriou maintaining her goal-kicking consistency alongside Nicole Callinan, both scoring three goals each. Sitting second on the ladder, they will come head-to-head with Premier B Women’s top team, the mighty Monash Blues. Who will be on top after round six?

It was an exciting weekend for the suburb of Brunswick when Brunswick and North Brunswick met to partake in a battle, with the ladies in the purple and green reigning supreme. With a 33-point-margin between final scores, Brunswick’s Larisa-Emanuela Dumitriu put on a best-player performance alongside goal-kicking machine Nolene Kingin who achieved a total of three goals. Can they keep up their incredible efforts next week up against the skilful St Bedes/Mentone tigers?

Still waiting for their first win is the best North Brunswick representative and goal kicker for round five, Megan Tsilemanis who will head to the home grounds of the accomplished Aquinas OC with hopes to finally experience triumph.

In the lead is the Cobras Illiana Zarfiriou who has accomplished an incredible 15 goals this season, followed by Molly Mcfarlane from the Blues on 8, Tahlia Limburg also from the Cobras on 7, Tigers player Laura Amelung on 6 and Brunswicks Nicole Kingi on 4.
