WAFLW Round 12 Match Report

Monday, May 9, 2022 - 3:23 PM

It was a tough round for our Swan Districts women’s teams, coming up against Claremont sides sitting above them all on the WAFLW 2022 ladder.

Goalless quarters and inaccuracy in front of the big sticks proved costly for our teams, unable to take home a victory in front of a home crowd,

Check out the match reports for each game below…

WAFLW League

The Swans League side got off to a great start on Saturday afternoon at Steel Blue Oval in front of the home crowd, kicking the first two goals of the game while holding their opponents to a solitary point.

Unfortunately for the black and whites, that’s where things dried up on the scoreboard. Managing just a couple of points for the next two quarters, Claremont capitalised on their opportunities, to take a three-goal lead into the final term.

A goal in the last quarter wasn’t enough to catch the visitors, as the Tigers continued to kick away, taking the SD 3.4 (22) to CT 7.11 (53) victory.

Captain, Jess Cox, continued to lead the way on field, amassing an impressive and game high 12 tackles and five inside 50s.

Goals: 1 – C Zappara, H Ugle-Hayward, T Beros

Best: N Baker, R Mahony, E Gelmi, J Cox, T Pescud


WAFLW Reserves

Coming up against an unbeaten women’s Reserves side, it was always going to be a tough ask for the young Reserves team at home on Sunday afternoon.

With great pressure around the ground, a tight first quarter saw the black and whites take a one-point lead into the first break.

A goalless second quarter for the Swans saw the visitors hit the lead, converting truly in front of the big sticks. 15 points separated the two teams at the main break.

Able to kick back in the third, a comeback looked likely for the home side. Unfortunately, the Tigers continued to put on scoreboard pressure, and with a zero goals to six final term, the visiting side and undefeated ladder leaders were too strong for the black ducks, taking a convincing 3.2 (20) to 12.6 (78) win.

Goals: 1 - R Williams, A Ugle-Hayward, K Badger

Best: I Strover, K Kennedy, J Davidson, C Ryder, A Ugle-Hayward


WAFLW Rogers Cup

A seven-goal haul between Carys Daddario and Riley Hall wasn’t quite enough to take the victory from a Claremont side desperate to get into finals contention with just five games remaining in the WAFLW season.

Both teams started the game with four scoring shots each in the first quarter. The young Swans were able to put just one major on the board, while the visitors hit the lead early with two. Five points separated the teams at the first break.

As the young black and whites continued to pepper the score board, it was a case of ‘anything you can do, I can do better’ in the second, as the Tigers extended their lead to three straight goals going into the half.

Outscoring their opponents in the second half, the deficit proved too large to come back from, as the Swans were defeated SD 8.5 (53) to 10.4 (64).

Carys Daddario and Riley Hall appeared unstoppable in the forward 50m for the Swans on the day, kicking four and three goals each, respectively.

Goals: 4 – C Daddario, 3 – R Hall, 1 – A Griffith

Best: R Hall, C Daddario, J Sly, A Griffith, N Hall
