Round 10 saw Premier B Women’s top four teams maintain their spots on the ladder, with Monash Blues still on top.

Richmond Centrals outing to the home grounds of Aquinas OC was unfortunately unsuccessful with Aquinas reigning supreme and producing a 19-point-margin between the final scores.

For Richmond, accuracy was their downfall, scoring a total of 6 behinds and 2 goals. It was Stephanie Talarico and Christie Brewis who scored Richmond’s two goals and worked alongside their best-on-field Katherine Brown to shorten the margin.

After a triumphant week in round 9 for Aquinas, they headed into this round with confidence and with goal-kicking machines in Holly Spicer, Molly Sheehan and Laura McHugh, who were also deemed best-on-field, creating success for their team.

Next Richmond will come head-to-head with the St Bedes/Mentone Tigers with Aquinas heading to the home grounds of North Brunswick.

It was a nail-biting game between Brunswick and Monash Blues, in a match that could have been anyone’s until the very end, with only three points between them at the final siren.

Brunswick sadly suffered another loss by less than a goal, for the second week in a row. Trying their best to keep the margin short was Brunswick’s goal kicker Augie Ross and their best-on-field Josephine Brown. Can Brunswick lift their game in next week’s match up against Mazenod OC?

The Blues were triumphant once again and are now on a four-game winning streak. Ainslee Elliott scored a goal for her team, with Ella Stephenson delivering on a best-on-ground performance. Monash are gearing up for next week’s match against the Cobras who are fighting for the top spot.

In another close game, it was the Old Yarra Cobras who stole the show on home turf with a 5-point win over St Bedes/Mentone.

Similar to their top competition, the Cobras are also on a 4-game winning streak, with outstanding efforts from best-on-field Casey Sheldon Collins and goal-kickers Illiana Zarfiriou, Penny Cula-Reid and Kristy Brockway.

Although the Tigers drew the short straw on this occasion, they played an incredible match with Jacklyn Honey, Alanah Strode and Madeleine Tilley scoring one goal each. Megan Jenkins displayed best-on-ground qualities with her defensive talents.

Next round, the Tigers will head towards the home grounds of Richmond Central while the Cobras will come head-to-head with their biggest competition in Monash Blues.

Mazenod OC’s outing to North Brunswick was triumphant, with 19 points between the final scores.

Through great resilience, North Brunswick made attempts to reduce the margin with Mary Ntalianis scoring their only goal and working alongside best-player Jackie Vella. Next round, they will play a home match against Aquinas OC.

Olivia Davis, Mikaela Buccella, and Charlotte Skinner scored one goal each, with Stephanie Smith putting on a best-on-field performance for Mazenod. Can they continue their efforts in Round 11 up against Brunswick?

After a week of jaw-dropping goals, the Cobras secret weapon, Iliana Zafiriou, is on 17 goals, still in the top position. Blues representative, Molly Mcfarlane is only three goals behind, with a total of 14, followed by Laura Amelung from the Tigers and Tahlia Limburg from the Cobras both on 11. Ainslee Elliott, also from the Blues with a total of eight.
