Willy have a S. Dunell in both teams?!?
The Calder Cannons rising star will don the sash for the first time on the back of a stellar NAB League career and Under-18 National Championships MVP honours.
Patrikios captained the Cannons in the team’s run to the grand final in 2019, averaging 23 disposals and four tackles.
The star midfielder was also selected in the 2019 NAB AFLW Under-18 All-Australian team and has been touted as the top selection in this year’s AFLW draft.
The 18-year old has been named the 23rd player and is set to add skill to the side, with her agility and goal sense a highlight.
[snip generic team-naming text]
Beautiful day here at Willy. Very light wind and sunny. Reasonable crowd, couple hundred.
So far, a scrappy game in our f50, but we can’t score.
Quigs to Collier - goal
Joins a limited group of our players with back-to-back goals! Kinda.
Svarc is a tackling machine. Very defensive game but ground heavy and slippery.
Fun fact - Georgia Nanscawen 's favourite player is Walla and she was stoked to get the same number. Also played all her junior hockey at Essendon.
Wind picking up, blowing across ground from west.
Is Ahrens (46) playing midfield as promised?
Goal Ess, i think Shae Audley
Jess Stassi just kicked a brilliant soccer goal
Scrambling play, Frew breaks clear - goal
My girls all grown up, winning games (plural) without me.
Yep, doing some rucking as well.
Nanscawen is being heavily tagged but continues to do well.
Ashley-Cooper taking solid marks
Mcintosh harassing them.
Whats thr finals format for VFLW, can we make them?
