After an even first term, Vic Country kicked nine goals to nil after quarter time to run away with a 56-point win. Geelong Falcon’s Lucy McEvoy, who will need to wait another 12 months for her draft year, shone up forward, kicking three goals in the second term, and finished with five for the match.

Metro could not shake WA all game, and despite an 18-point lead at three quarter time, Metro were unable to find the goals in the last, but weathered a WA final term fight back to win by eight points. Eastern Ranges Mikayla Cann had a strong second half, finishing with 23 disposals, while Northern Knight Gabbie Newton led the way up forward with two goals and a game high 23 disposals.

We spoke with both coaches post game.
