ROUND two of the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s gave the football world a more clear picture of where each team sits. Richmond has crashed back down to earth after being smashed by Darebin on Saturday. After their win, the Falcons showed that they cannot be ruled out after their mammoth loss to NT in round one. The Hawks also stamped themselves as contenders with their second straight win.
Darebin dominated Richmond, and the Team of the Week with three players getting a spot in the best 22, headlined by Hannah Mouncey who was dominant up forward with three goals. Melbourne University also had three players, including new North Melbourne recruit, Emma Kearney who finished with 25 disposals. The Southern Saints got some love this week after their first win in the competition, with Danielle Lawrence (four goals) and Alison Drennan (35 disposals) making their way into the best 22.
With so many standout midfielders this week, it was too hard to fit Carlton’s Sophie Li and Collingwood’s Sarah Dargan into the Team of the Week, but they should still be commended for wonderful performances.
