Weekly wrap: TSL Women’s – Preliminary Final

GLENORCHY has won through to the Grand Final against Clarence this week after a win over Launceston in the preliminary final. The Magpies had their work cut out for them in the finals series, missing the opportunity to have a week off after a loss to Clarence in the first week of finals. Now the minor premiers have rightfully won the right to get revenge on the Roos next week in the decider.

Both teams started off slow in the tight tussle, with Glenorchy having the upper hand by just six points at the first break. The Magpies had a promising second quarter by keeping Launceston scoreless, but were unable to put some damage on the scoreboard. Their inaccuracy resulted in 2.7 for the quarter to obtain a 17-point lead at half-time. The Blues fought back in the third term, outscoring Glenorchy two goals to one to reduce the margin to 10 points. But the Magpies put the foot down in the last quarter, kicking three goals to one to secure a Grand Final berth, courtesy of a 21-point win against the Blues.

Everyone chipped in inside 50 with single goal kickers all round for Glenorchy. Sarah Skinner, Sandy Eaton, Nietta Lynch, Jasmine Tate Turvey, Macklyn Sutcliffe and Meg Jacobs were the ones who got on the board for the Magpies.

It was a slow start for both sides in this game with only one goal apiece to half-time. The Roos could have had more of an upper hand had they kicked accurately, but instead they kicked 1.6. The scoring woes continued in the third quarter, ending up with 2.9 at the main break. Luckily for the Roos, the Magpies could not punish them, as they were unable to score a goal in the second half. Clarence’s final score of 30 came from just three goals, but was aided by 12 behinds, winning ugly to get into the Grand Final.

Natalie Pearce, Grace Mitchell and Sophie Pennicott were the goal kickers for Clarence, with Mitchell being the pick of the bunch. She was named second best on ground behind Maddison Smith, who has had a great season. Georgia Pennicott, Bronte Scott, Jacinta Limbrick and Loveth Ochayi were the other players who did well on the day for the Roos.

Tigers: G. Millar, E. Kirkwood, T. Roxann , L. Reid, J. Murphy, C. Brooke

The Tigers started off the game well, scoring one goal to Launceston’s three to keep them in the hunt early. But unfortunately, that was where the scoring ended for the away side, with the Blues kicking into gear after the first break. They opened up the game with a six-goal second quarter followed by a four-goal third quarter. By the fourth, Launceston had piled on another four majors to take the margin beyond 100 points and bid the Tigers a harsh farewell.

Emma Manix-Geeves was the star of the day for Launceston, with a best-on-ground five-goal performance. Second and third best were given to the next best goal kickers in Abbey Green and Angela Dickson, who both got four majors on the board. Brie Rattray was the other multiple goal kicker with two goals. Camilla Taylor, Mikayla Binns, Dearne Taylor and Meg Radford were the single goal kickers, with Taylor and Binns being named in the best. The Tigers’ only goal came from Megan Wilkinson.

TSL Women’s weekly wrap: Round 18

A potential Grand Final preview was played in this round, with ladder-leader, Glenorchy taking on second-placed Clarence. In Round 18, it was the Roos who came out on top, but the Magpies will certainly want revenge in the finals. Meanwhile, third-placed Launceston got the perfect preparation for finals with a big win over cellar-dwellers, Burnie.

 

LAUNCESTON 4.10 | 7.15 | 9.17 | 13.20 (98)
BURNIE 0.0 | 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.2 (2)

GOALS:

Launceston: M. King, A. Dickson, B. Rattray, C. Thuringer, N. Ristrom, C. Stanley
Burnie: L. Haines, L. Stevenson, E. Duncombe, K. Johnson, L. Badcock, C. Chandler

Launceston jumped out of the blocks early in this game, scoring four goals to none in the first quarter. However, the Blues could have put more damage on the board had they kicked accurate. They kicked 10 behinds in the first quarter alone but bounced back in the second with 3.5, while only restricting Burnie to one point at the main break. In the second quarter, Launceston continued to pile the scoring pressure on the Dockers. While the Blues were only restricted to two goals in the third term, they made amends of it in the last, kicking four goals to end with a 96-point victory.

Brie Rattray did a lot of the damage up forward with five majors while Angela Dickson, Dearne Taylor and Emma Manix-Geeves chipped in with two. Dickson and Rattray were also named among the best but the shining light was Tasmania’s only Under-18 All Australian representative, Mia King. King was named best on ground in the loss against the Dockers, making it her fourth time among the better players on the ground. Another Under 18 representative was named best on ground for the Dockers with Libby Haines taking top honours. State teammate, Lauren Stevenson also played a good game for Burnie, being named second-best in the loss.

Clarence: S. Pennicott, M. Smith, N. Bresnehan, J. Limbrick, L. Ochayi, B. Scott

Ladder-leader, Glenorchy was dealt with a wake-up call in this game, and it came straight away in the first quarter when Clarence got the first goal on the board and took the early lead. The Magpies then responded in the second, outscoring the Roos two goals to one to level up the scores at half time. But Clarence put the foot on the accelerator in the third quarter, keeping Glenorchy scoreless while also kicking four goals. This gave the Roos a 26-point lead at the last break, making it very difficult for the Magpies to make a comeback. To their credit, they outscored the Roos in the last quarter by keeping them scoreless and kicking one goal themselves, but by then, the damage was already done.

Sophie Pennicott made it 13 goals from 13 games for Clarence when she kicked two goals on the weekend. Pennicott was also named best on ground in the win, making it her sixth time in the best. The rest of the goals came from Under 18 duo, Jessica Minifie and Jenna Farrow as well as Darcy Elliston and Natalie Pearce. Surprisingly, the second highest goal kicker in the competition, Jacinta Limbrick didn’t get a major on the board, but she was still named in the best. She was complemented by Maddison Smith, Nicole Bresnehan, Loveth Ochayi and Bronte Scott. Nietta Lynch completed her wonderful season in front of goal by kicking two for Glenorchy. She finished the regular season on top of the goal kicking table with 34 goals from 14 games. Sandy Eaton was the other goal kicker for the Magpies. Elise Barwick was the most impressive Magpie in the game while Gennaveve Sullivan and Natalie Daniels also had good games.
