ROOSTERS SCORE BACK-TO-BACK WINS
By JESS MACKEY
It was a week for the away teams to shine in Round 7, as all the home sides failed to get wins on their own turf.
West Footscray scored its to get their second win for the season, defeating Werribee Centrals.
The Roosters took on Werribee Centrals at Galvin Park. It was a low scoring affair which saw them score back-to-back wins in the Victoria University Polytechnic Senior Women’s competition.
Eva Brightling and Katherine Belcher scored the only goals for the match to get the win for West Footscray.
Despite an evenly contested match, Werribee Centrals failed to convert, while West Footscray made the most of their chances in the forward 50 and were rewarded for their efforts, scoring an 11-point win.
In one of the best matches we have seen all season, Spotswood were defeated at Dream Street Lending Oval by Caroline Springs. Both sides used the ball really well and managed to create plenty of opportunity in front of goal.
The first half was all Caroline Springs, as they took a 45-point lead into the major break, but Spotswood conceded just the one goal in the second and lost by only 30-points in the end.
Caitlin Pretty starred, kicking seven of her side’s 12 goals.
For Spotswood, Lauren Dundon was outstanding as the leading goal kicker for her team with three goals for the day.
In another well contested match, Laverton got the job done against North Sunshine. The Roadrunners were unable to back up their first a fortnight ago, having been kept scoreless the entire first half.
A late fightback from the Roadrunners in the third quarter wasn’t enough, as the Magpies came out and kicked away in the final quarter.
Laverton had four individual goal kickers, with Sasha Edwards leading the way with two of her team’s five goals.
Manor Lakes had another stellar win, defeating Point Cook Centrals by 150-points.
The Sharks managed to kick just one point in the first quarter, and nothing the rest of the game.
Kellee McIntosh kicked six goals, Gemma Anderson and Cara Dunshea also kicked five goals apiece.
