AFLW Round 2 – Sharks Wrap Up

There’s a game still to be played in round 2 of the AFLW season, but it’s a wrap for the Sharks girls who all featured in the first 3 games.

Adelaide defeated Western Bulldogs

It was a tough night for the Doggies girls after an impressive win last weekend. An in form Adelaide side were too strong for Laura Bailey, Jess Gardner and Rebecca Neaves Western Bulldogs side.

Carlton defeated GWS

It was long time Shark, Phoebe McWilliams Melbourne debut and it didn’t disappoint. The underdog Giants side were super impressive early and Phoebe added another goal to her tally, making it two goals from two games.

For Carlton, Alison Brown showed great improvement with her 7 disposals and 3 tackles. Tilly Lucas-Rodd was everywhere and collected 13 disposals (equal third for the match) and Brianna Davey continued her impressive campaign with 20 disposals (6 clear of 2nd) and she remains the leagues leading disposal getter after 2 games.

Collingwood vs Melbourne

With both sides desperate for a win after a disappointing round one the crowd were expecting an exciting game and it delivered. Collingwood bursted out of the gates and led by 3 goals at half time, but the Demons side rallied together in the second half and stormed home to win by 19 points.

Meg Downie was again impressive down back for the Dees before she received a head high knock in second half and left the field on a stretcher. Meg has since been given the all clear from the doctors and the entire St Kilda Sharks organisation wishes her a speedy recovery. Before leaving the field Meg had 8 disposals, 3 marks and 2 tackles.

Mia-Rae Clifford spent a lot of time playing down back on fellow Shark Moana Hope, who kicked her first and only goal in the first quarter.

Penny Cula-Reid debuted for the Pies, Brittany Bonnici continued to impress with her work through the Pies midfield and collected 9 disposals and 6 tackles. Jasmine Garner had another solid game for the pies with 8 disposals and 3 tackles playing on the Pies half forward line.
