Mazenod finished their season on a high, while other teams could not withhold the power of the Premier B Women’s finalists. The top 3 went out with a bang while others fell short in their final appearance for the home and away season.

The mighty Monash Blues have topped the ladder this season, after stealing Brunswick’s final match out from under them.

Even with Clare Woodhouse’s persistent efforts, Brunswick was unable to withhold the power of the Blues.

Creating a 156-point-margin, the Blues created some magic over the weekend with an outstanding 4 goals kicked from Emma Draffin and Molly Mcfarlane, while Emily Conroy was named best afield.

The semi-final will bring the top two competitors together, when the Blues take on the Cobras.

North Brunswick and Mazenod OC headed into this match up knowing it would be their last run for the 2023 season. Mazenod reigned supreme and finished on a high.

While their season has been quite unfortunate, Madeleine Bentely and Jackie Vell kicked a goal each while Caitlin Holzheimer scored two goals and Celeste Ramnac earned herself best on ground for North Brunswick.

Generating the 24-point margin for Mazenod was Emma Hopkins who booted four goals, Lara Del Conte who scored two and Laura Gartland who kicked one, with Stephanie Smith receiving best-player, in her final match of the season.

North Brunswick finished 8th on the ladder while Mazenod finished in 6th.

The St Bedes/Mentone Tigers fell short this week in their match against Aquinas OC, with a 19-point margin between the final scores.

Another player who scored four goals in round 18 was Melanie Hogg, who was also Aquinas’ best player and worked alongside Holly Spicer, who assisted leading her team to victory.

Although the Tigers struggled to suppress the force of Aquinas, Tanisha Binios and Elisa Canzantariti were able to rack up a goal each while Madeleine Tilley put on a best-player performance.

Can Aquinas steal the show again in next week’s semi-final rematch, or can the Tigers rise to the occasion?

Stealing the glory in Richmond Centrals final game for the season was the Old Yarra Cobras who attained 9 goals and 10 behinds in comparison to Richmond’s one goal and two behinds.

Making the most of their final appearance for this season was Christie Brewis who scored Richmond’s only goal, while Kellie Birkette was deemed best afield.

Iliana Zafiriou scored five of the Cobras nine goals, while Tahlia Limburg scored two, Alannah Murray and Clare Moody kicked one each, and Mia Gianoppoulos earned herself best-player.

It was Iliana Zafiriou who managed to finish the season with a total of 33 goals, making her the leader of Premier B womens.

Only six goals behind, was Laura Amelung, with Molly Mcfaralane in third with a total of 23 goals.
