Weekly wrap: TSL Women’s – Grand Final

GLENORCHY has claimed a thrilling two-point win the Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s Grand Final, seeking revenge on Clarence, the side that upset the minor premiers in the semi-finals.

Macklyn Sutcliffe was the star of the day for the Magpies, kicking Glenorchy’s first and last goal of the game to win the best-on-ground medal. It was goal-for-goal throughout but Glenorchy managed to get on top in the last quarter, outscoring the Roos two goals to none.

Clarence’s Jacinta Limbrick kicked off the scoring for the day with a beautiful set shot kick from about 40 metres out. The Magpies hit back right away through Sutcliffe, who took a great sliding mark, played on and kicked a booming long-range goal. Elise Barwick then gave Glenorchy the lead for the first time when she earned a free kick close to goal and made no mistake. Just like the first goal, it was a quick response from the opposition, as Clarence got the quick reply through an open kick inside 50. Limbrick was on the end of it, getting her foot to the ball in the goal square. This gave the Roos a slim two-point lead at the first break.

They kept their momentum going in the second quarter, when vice-captain, Nicole Bresnehan picked up a loose ball inside 50 and sped towards goal. In the classic goal-for-goal fashion of the game, the Magpies hit back in an instant, with Sandy Eaton crumbing off a Nietta Lynch spilled mark in the goal square. This reduced the Magpies’ deficit to two points. The scoring dried up at the end of the quarter, with neither team scoring a goal for 12 minutes. This meant that Clarence went into the main break with the same margin as it had in the first break.

To begin the third quarter, Glenorchy opened up the scoring through an Barwick kick inside 50, which Hannah Smith ran onto out the back, slotting through the major. The Roos fought right back in the seesawing contest, with North Melbourne recruit, Maddison Smith kicking a great set shot major from just inside 50. Smith ended up being a game-changer for the Roos, kicking her second goal in a couple of minutes. In an inside 50 stoppage in front of goal, she read the tap perfectly and ran into goal for her second of the day. This gave her side a 10-point lead, which it took into three quarter time.

In the fourth term, it was all Glenorchy, as the Magpies kept their opposition goalless. Natalie Daniels kicked off the scoring for the Magpies in the term, with an in-and-under hard-ball get resulting in a key major. Then, Darcy Elliston missed a crucial set shot at the other end for the Roos and Sutcliffe made her pay. Sutcliffe received a handball on the run from Daniels and kicked her second major to put the Magpies in front by a solitary point. Her side was able to hold on for the rest of the match, kicking a late behind to win the thrilling decider by two points.

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.

Glenorchy flexed its muscles against Tigers in the standalone game for Round 17. To Tigers’ credit, the home side pushed the minor premiers in the first term to head into the first break just eight points down. The effort was well and truly there in the second term, despite not hitting the scoreboard. They restricted the Magpies to just 2.6 and were still within reach at the main break, just 26 points down. Unfortunately for the home side, their hopes of an upset was soon squashed when Glenorchy showed why they were the team to beat in this year’s competition, slamming home 6.2 and holding Tigers scoreless for the second consecutive quarter. The underdogs restricted the Magpies to three goals in the final term, but once again could not hit the scoreboard themselves, going down by 86 points.

The Tigers’ regular season is over now with a bye in the final round, while Glenorchy will face Clarence ahead of finals. Tigers will play finals providing the bottom of the table Burnie do not upset Launceston in the final round.

TSL Women’s weekly wrap: Round 15

IN Round 15 of the Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s, ladder leaders Glenorchy were too good for Burnie, while Launceston held off Clarence in a thriller.

Top-of-the-table Glenorchy showed exactly why it has been the benchmark team this season, with a comprehensive 97-point win over cellar dwellers, Burnie. After a tight first term which only saw the Magpies boot two goals, they began getting more chances, booting 2.5 in the second term and heading into the main break five goals ahead, but holding their opponents scoreless. The third term was much of the same for the home side as they missed opportunities to boot 2.8, while Emily Duncombe booted Burnie’s first – and only – goal of the match. If the Magpies were still rusty coming off a bye, they shook the cobwebs aside in the final term, piling on 8.5 to storm to a huge win at home. Macklyn Sutcliffe booted four majors in the win and was named among the best, while Nietta Lynch nailed three goals and was awarded best on ground. Sandy Eaton and Thomasa Corrie both booted two goals apiece, while Elise Barwick was also impressive for Glenorchy.

Both sides managed a goal in the second term, before the Roos hit back with two of their own in the third, to draw within 11 points. Launceston’s inaccuracy was hurting and could have been further in front had they not kicked 1.4 in the third quarter.

Courtney Webb and Abbey Green both booted two majors for the winners, while Tiarna Ford was the multiple goal kicker for the Roos.

TSL Women’s: The run home

WITH five rounds remaining, the five-team Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s is shaping up and we take a look at how the five teams have gone to date.

1 Glenorchy (10 wins, 1 loss | 295.79% | 40 points)

After a Round 1 loss to Launceston, Glenorchy has won 10 on the trot and raced to the top of the table, getting stronger as the season went on. A narrow 13-point win over Clarence heading into this weekend’s bye has the Magpies holding a clear advantage in top spot. With Burnie in between two byes, and then Tigers and Clarence to finish off the home and away season, Glenorchy are well positioned at the top of the table.

Sarah Skinner has the most bests to her name, having been named in the Magpies’ best eight of a possible 10 times. Macklyn Sutcliffe has found her way into the bests and also booted nine goals in her 11 games – third overall for the club, while Brieanna Barwick has booted four goals and been named in the best six times. Nietta Lynch leads the goal kicking with 25 from 11 games, ahead of Natalie Daniels with 12 majors.

2 Clarence (7 wins, 3 losses | 400.56% | 28 points)

The Roos are a clear second, 12 points behind Glenorchy, but have a superior percentage of more than 400. When they win, they really win, with four scores over the ton, and their opponents restricted to four goals or less in every game except for a Round 3 loss to Glenorchy. They play every other side in the run home, with a bye in the penultimate round.

Georgia Pennicott has been named in the best five times from 10 games, while Bronte Scott, Nicole Bresnehan and Sophie Pennicott have also been among the best more often than not. Jacinta Limbrick leads the goal kicking with 20 majors, ahead of Maddison Smith (15), Natalie Heggie (14) and Darcy Elliston (10).

3 Launceston (6 wins, 4 losses | 278.83% | 24 points)

Launceston started the season on fire with a win over Glenorchy and big victories over Burnie and Tigers. They went down to Clarence in Round 4 and sit with six wins from 10 games, coming off the back of a thumping 132-point belting of Burnie. In the final five rounds they play Burnie twice more, Clarence and Tigers.

Angela Dixon has been the top player thus far this season, named in the best six times from 10 games, averaging a goal of game at the same time. Abbey Green has also been impressive, named in the best five times from nine games and having booted nine goals. Young star Mia King has played the six games, booting four goals and named in the best on two occasions. Courtney Webb leads all-comers with 15 majors in just five games, but 11 of those came in that huge win over Burnie.

4 Tigers (2 wins, 9 losses | 15.25% | 8 points)

Tigers have had just the two wins for the season, both of which came against Burnie. Last weekend, Tigers had the lowest winning score of the year with 1.5 (11) to defeat the Dockers by two points, repeating the effort they had earlier in the year when they won by 26 points at home. In the final five rounds they have two byes and play Launceston, Clarence and Glenorchy.

Marla Neal has been superb all season for Tigers, named in the best 10 times from 11 games, while Cara Brooke has found her way into the bests nine times in 11 games. Gillian Millar (six) and Jessica Murphy (five) have also been prominent players for Tigers. In terms of goal kickers, Kristy Baker has four majors, while Erin Maree Lucas booted her three goals against Burnie earlier in the season.

5 Burnie (1 win, 9 losses | 15.07% | 4 points)

Burnie sits at the bottom after losing to Tigers last round, and has just the one win – an impressive 25-point win over Tigers in Round 8. They came agonisingly close to repeating the feat in Round 13, going down by two points. Having only booted one goal in the first five rounds, they booted 14 in the next three, and have booted 16 for the season to date.

The team is led by young stars Libby and Chloe Haines, and Lauren Stevenson, who all represented the Eastern Allies at the AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships. Libby Haines has been named in the best seven times, Chloe Haines six and Stevenson six, and along with Courtney Chandler, have been the standouts for Burnie. Hannah Martin has booted five goals in three games to lead the goal kicking, while Emma Humphries has three.
