As we etch nearer to finals, the competition intensifies for Premier B Women’s with Monash Blues at the top of the ladder.

Aquinas OC’s outing to the home of the St Bedes/Mentone Tigers, resulted in a nail-biting game, with only four points between the final scores.

Leading Aquinas to victory was Melanie Hogg, scoring a total of two goals alongside Niamh Sanders who also contributed 6 points to the final score. It was Hannah Virgona who was deemed best on field with her astounding defensive efforts.

Alannah Strode was a goal-kicking machine for the Tigers, claiming two goals for her team and Olivia Steinfort was recognised as their best player for round 13.

In round 14, both teams will partake in an away game with the Tigers coming head-to-head against Brunswick and Aquinas taking on Mazenod OC.

Monash Blues‘ shining star Molly McFalane had a triumphant outing to the home of North Brunswick over the weekend, scoring a total of three goals for her team.

Also contributing to the 74-point difference between the final scores was Emma Draftin scoring two goals for the Blues, as well as best-afield Johannah Dallas.

North Brunswick were unfortunately unable to withhold the power of Blues, scoring a total of two behinds. Annie Littles’ defensive efforts were recognised, earning herself best-on-field for her team.

Next week, Monash will play a home match against Richmond Central and North Brunswick will head to the home of the Old Yarra Cobras.

In an unfortunate home match for Richmond Central, it was Mazenod OC who reigned supreme, with a 20-point margin between the final scores. Mazenod dominated the play and were able to keep Richmond Central to a mere 3 behinds.

Can Richmond central withhold the power of the mighty Monash Blues in next week’s match? Can Mazenod’s, goal scorers Olivia Davis, Lara Del Conte and best-on-field Stephanie Smith continue their triumph in next week’s match against Aquinas OC?

The Old Yarra Cobras played an outstanding match against Brunswick over the weekend. The Cobras stormed home with a 78-point victory, in a percentage boosting win.

Grace Kendall and Nolene Kingi, worked hard alongside Brunswick’s best player Lauren Palombi to shorten the margin between the final scores but unfortunately the Cobras strength could not be detained.

With a total of 13 goals and 12 behinds, Tahlia Limburg scored an incredible four goals, with Illiana Zarfiriou scoring three, Alannah Murray with two and Lou Podmore, Emma Elliott and Mia Giannopoulos contributing one goal each. Jess Major displayed a magnificent best-on-field performance.

The Cobras are set to take on North Brunswick, as Brunswick comes head-to-head against the Tigers in Round 14.

After a week of exceptional goal-kicking performances, Iliana Zarfiriou sits in first place with 23 goals. Not far behind is Molly McFarlane on 17, Laura Amelung and Tahlia Limburg on 15 and Holly Spicer on 10.
