ROUND 6 of NAB League Girls action saw the Northern Academies join the league for the first time, and while technically one match is still yet to play after the two Queensland-based academies were not allowed in Victoria under COVID-19 restrictions, plenty of players across the remaining seven games stepped up to the plate. We take a look at this week’s stat leaders.
Draft Central Player of the Week, Tess Craven was the only player to top multiple leaderboards this round, with the Falcons talent piling on 31 disposals and 22 kicks to take out the respective categories. Calder’s Georgie Prespakis only trailed Craven by two touches in her own match, and leads this week’s handball tally with 16 against Gippsland Power. Stella Reid continues to impress with six marks, with Craven among the five players to pick up five. The aforementioned trio all tally the the top four average disposals for the season so far.
Just one stat featured multiple leaders this week, with the tackle count 10 apiece to GWS GIANTS Academy’s Brodee Mowbray and GWV Rebels’ Chloe Leonard, while Leonard’s teammate Kalani Scoullar topped the hitout tally with 22 against the Jets.
In a fairly consistent round for goalkickers, Calder’s Neve Crowley led the charge with three majors and was followed by a total of 10 other multiple goalkickers across the weekend who all booted two apiece. Dandenong’s Amber Clarke was the most potent kick forward with nine inside 50s, whilst Gippsland’s Lily-Rose Williamson registered the same amount of rebounds in her side’s loss to Calder.
