Caulfield Grammarians are starting to fire up with finals on the horizon; their win on Saturday making it three in a row. Meanwhile, Kew, SKOB and Collegians all rolled on with wins to cement their place in finals.

Caulfield Grammarians dominated the game early, kicking 3.2 to Fitzroy’s 1.2 in the first half. Another goal in the third quarter helped to cement the win. Whilst Fitzroy raised hopes of a comeback with a late goal in the fourth, it wasn’t enough to get the job done.

Chloe O’Malley continued her strong form in front of goals, having only gone goalless once this season. Serena Kuo, Aana Rogers and Tarryn Hurst were also goalkickers for Caulfield. Meanwhile for Fitzroy, Sara Guerra was their best and finished with a goal.

Caulfield Grammarians face their biggest challenge next week against SKOB at Righetti oval, as they look to go four in a row. Elsewhere, Fitzroy will host Coburg.

It was the match of the round and Collegians lived up to the occasion, defeating Old Scotch by 19 points to notch their 7th win of the season. The margin had the potential to be much bigger, with Collegians kicking eight behinds in what was a wayward day in front of goals for them.

Old Scotch were unable to register a goal in the first half, demonstrating Collegians defensive dominance throughout the game. For the Cardinals, Alexandra Mcculloch kicked a goal to be their best, as did Mia Caffry and Olivia Mccredie. Jessy Gardner was the only multiple goal scorer of the day, whilst it was Kate Dudley who was the best on ground for Collegians.

Collegians will feature in the match of the round again next weekend, when they host Kew. Old Scotch will host Melbourne Uni.

Kew rolled onto victory again this weekend, proving themselves as the biggest threat having not lost so far this season, sitting comfortably on top of the ladder. West Brunswick came in all guns blazing ready to face the top dogs.

A big first half set the game up for Kew, kicking 4.4 to 1.0. Whilst they only scored one point after the first half, they also managed to limit West Brunswick to 1.1 after half time.

Michaela Harding was named the best for Kew for the first time this season, having been in the mix across three games this season. Chloe Leighton was also named in the best after kicking a goal. Ella Banfield was the best for the Magpies to back up a strong performance against Fitzroy last weekend.

The Magpies have the bye next weekend, whilst Kew will travel to take on Collegians.

It was a close battle between Melbourne Uni Women’s and St Kevin’s, with SKOB running out seven-point winners in the end. It was a high scoring affair in the first half, with a score of 2.2-14 to 3.1-19. However, it dropped off after there, with both teams registering only one goal after the main break.

Frances Walsh continued her strong form for Melbourne Uni Women’s, being named the best and featuring amongst the best for the fifth week in a row. Catherine Stanton kicked three goals, whilst Sarah Betts and Bree Doyle were amongst the best once again.

Next weekend, Melbourne Uni will play Old Scotch, whilst St Kevin’s host Caulfield.
