Ulverstone dominate scoreboard to book final decider spot with Glenorchy

ULVERSTONE has booked its spot in the Tasmanian Women’s Statewide Grand Final after getting the job done in an imposing performance against Launceston at Dial Park in Penguin on the weekend. The Robins controlled play for nearly the entirety of the match, having 15 scoring shots to six – including 11 to two by the final break, but it took until a goal in the last two minutes from Amy Bissett to seal the 19-point victory.

In the first year of the new-look women’s football structure in Tasmania, Ulverstone and Launceston were the respective premiers in the NWFL and NTFA in the north of the state. By winning their respective leagues, they booked a spot in the preliminary final in order to have a shot at the winner of the Southern Football League (SFL) competition. Both sides came into the clash with some impressive young players and experienced heads, and in perfect football conditions, produced a hard-fought spectacle throughout four quarters.

For the most part, the game was dominated by Ulverstone in the forward half, with respective captains Meg Thompson (Ulverstone) and Dearne Taylor (Launceston) the best on ground for their respective sides. The Robins had more depth around the ground however, with ex-AFLW listed talents in Chloe and Libby Haines up opposite ends, and a sprinkling of talented Tasmania Devils players such as Meghan Gaffney and Candice Belbin through midfield and Bissett up forward who all caught the eye.

Neither team could really get on the board in a meaningful way early, with five behinds shared between the teams, and Ulverstone leading by three points at the first break. Bissett had a great run and set it up to Georgia Anderson, but the subsequent set shot missed. The Robins did the bulk of the attacking as it would prove to be the case for most of the game, with Bissett and Chloe Haines both having rushed shots on goal, which saw the Launceston defence up to the task. Up the other end, Kiara Mills had a chance on goal but was marked on the line, with Molly Clark‘s strong hands and booming kick around the ground having an impact for the Blues.

The second term saw Anderson put through the first major of the game six minutes into the term, with a contested ball win by Belbin getting the ball forward on the wing to a teammate in space, and leading to Anderson kicking the major. The Blues tried to respond immediately with Mills having a quick snap under pressure but bouncing through for a behind. It would be Launceston’s only goal of the game, as Bissett missed a chance she would usually gobble up, to put the margin at nine points heading into half-time. Ruby Mitchell was productive for the Robins alongside Thompson, Gaffney and Belbin, with Mikayla Binns and ruck Monique Duffy also getting involved with Clark and Taylor for the Blues.

It was complete one-way traffic for the Robins in the third term as they built an incredible 19-point lead by the final break. It should have been a lot larger, with Ulverstone kicked 1.4 to 0.0 to suffocate the Launceston attack and maintain forward possession for the majority of the term. The move of Belbin on-ball permanently was a huge success with the bottom-age talent having the ball on a string, whilst Thompson and Gaffney were busy again, and lead to Anderson having a crack at a second goal but was saved on the line by Hayley Whyte. The defensive work from Whyte had been great close to goal, but she tried to bite off too much charging out, tackled by Anderson who had another shot, but just missed.

Moments later she would get her chance though, with Thompson winning a free kick and it drifted to the pocket for Chloe Haines to mark uncontested, she popped it up to the top of the goalsquare where Anderson marked and slotted the major for her, and her team’s second goal. Despite the likes of Taylor, Whyte and Elyse Page working hard to stem the damage, the Robins kept on attacking, with Thompson having a couple of shots, with Page touching one on the line and another one being rushed across. The siren sounded soon other with an imposing 19-point lead to the Robins.

With a quarter to play, Launceston needed a quick response, and after Bissett had a snap around her body that was rushed through early in the term, the Blues provided it. They rushed it forward and had the best chance for goal after a free kick for downfield was paid to Despina Amerikanos. Her set shot missed though, and when Clark intercepted and had a shot from 40m that fell short and was cleared after a Duffy mark claim was not paid, it appeared their time, and luck had run out. They still attacked over the course of the next 10 minutes, peppering the goals desperate to get back into it, with a couple of rushed behinds with Ulverstone’s back six up to the task.

Finally Launceston got the goal they were deserving of, with Maddison Shaw winning a free kick 15m out and slotting it to cut the deficit to nine points with the faint sniff of a comeback. That was put to bed in the final few minutes though, with the Robins attacking and Bissett reading the play brilliantly off hands at the top of the goalsquare to snap the goal and send her team into the grand final. She had another chance running into goal in the final minute and almost began to celebrate her effort before it cannoned into the woodwork. Regardless, Ulverstone had got up by 19 points and progressed into the Women’s Statewide Grand Final.

Ulverstone will take on Glenorchy in the Tasmanian Women’s Stateleague Grand Final next weekend after the Magpies defeated Claremont 10.8 (68) to 5.2 (32) in the SFL Women’s Grand Final on Sunday.

Launceston paints the town blue with seven-point TSL Women’s premiership

LAUNCESTON has claimed the 2020 Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s premiership with a seven-point victory over Glenorchy at UTAS Stadium on Saturday. The result marked Launceston’s third women’s flag and redeemed their heartbreaking Grand Final defeat to Clarence last season. North Melbourne AFL Women’s player Mia King was sensational in the midfield and rightly awarded the medal for best on ground.

The minor premiers were slow out of the gates, with Glenorchy controlling the majority of the play early. The Magpies were kicking with the wind and locked the ball in their forward half for the majority of the first quarter. However, they dropped some easy marks inside 50 and could not capitalise on their opportunities. Elise Barwick earned a free kick in a forward 50 ruck contest midway through the term, but she got too close to the woman on the mark and opened the scoring with a behind. Tiarna Ford, who looked dangerous in front of goal early, hit the post with a snap just moments later. Perri King then laid a strong tackle inside 50 and won a holding the ball decision, but she missed her set shot as well to the near side. Launceston was scoreless at quarter time and trailed by three points.

The second quarter is where Launceston won the game, as they kicked all 13 of their points in this term. Going towards the scoring end, the Blues were finally able to get on top in the midfield. King was the leader of their dominance, as she won plenty of clearances and created some strong link-up play through the middle of the ground. Her attack on the ball clearly set the tone for her side coming out of quarter time. In the fourth minute, forward Brooke Brown produced some magnificent play on the half-forward flank to set up Cecilia Cameron for the first goal of the match. Just minutes later, Brown kicked the second with a nice snap around the body from 30 metres out. For the rest of the quarter, Glenorchy kept kicking the ball over the boundary coming out of defence, so Launceston locked it in their forward half quite easily. Abbie Hoiberg-Cox’s dash off half-back was a highlight of this term, as was Cameron’s strong presence up forward. Launceston went into half-time with a 10-point lead.

Glenorchy had most of the play in the first half of the third term, but Launceston’s defence led by Dearne Taylor and Hayley Whyte stood up magnificently. Sarah Skinner eventually earned a free kick right in front of goal, but her set shot was touched by the woman on the mark. While the Magpies had a couple of other opportunities to hit the scoreboard, their lack of composure inside 50 continued to haunt them. They were pressing until Cameron took one of the marks of the year in defensive 50 running back with the flight to shift the momentum. Skinner was equally as courageous in this contest, as she blindly ran back the other way and copped a massive hit for her troubles. A great contested mark from Brown on the wing released the pressure for Launceston even more, and Glenorchy did not earn any more scoring opportunities for the rest of the quarter.

In the final term, Launceston always had extra numbers back to stop Glenorchy from kicking a major and getting back into the game. Ford almost broke their goal-scoring drought at the eight-minute mark, but Taylor sprinted back with desperation to touch the ball on the line. Launceston held up well after that and ran out deserving winners.

TSL Women’s weekend review: Round 6 – Blues and Magpies run away with strong wins

TOP three sides, Launceston and Glenorchy came away with victories in Round 6 of the Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s against the bottom two sides as the competition crossed the midway point of the season. The top of the table Launceston was too good for last placed Tigers, winning by 53 points, while third placed Glenorchy put more distance between itself and the fourth placed North Launceston, getting up by 32 points.

In the top against bottom clash, Launceston could not buy a goal in the opening term, kicking five behinds but kept its opponent scoreless to lead by that margin at the first break. They managed to find their range in the second term, booting two straight goals, while the visitors kicked a major to be within 12 points at the main break. It was the second half where the premiership favourites broke away, booting six goals to zero, and having 12 scoring shots to nil to run away and win 8.11 (59) to 1.0 (6).

Daria Bannister continued her impressive season back at state level, slotting three goals in the win as the sole multiple goalscorer. Alongside her, Camilla Taylor and Mia King both slotted goals and were named among Launceston’s best, while Dearne Taylor and Amy Halaby were also among the winning team’s best on the day. Phoebe Parsons booted Tigers’ only goal of the match in the second term, while it was Maci Polley, Hailee Baldwin and Sacha Rival-Quinn who all earned their name in the best for their efforts on the losing side.

In the other match, Glenorchy overcame a first quarter deficit to run out comfortable winners with a strong final three terms. North Launceston looked like causing a stir in the first quarter by kicking two goals to one and leading by seven points at the first break. A four goals to zip second term in favour of the Magpies saw them race off to a 17-point advantage at half-time. From there they held off the Bombers, restricting them to just three behinds in the second half, whilst booting the two goals in the half to make it the final six goals of the game.

Molly Mitchell kicked three goals for Glenorchy, with leading goalkicker Sarah Skinner and Tiarna Ford also kicking two majors apiece for all multiple goalkickers. Libby Haines was terrific in the win for the black and whites, while Skinner, Kira Maass and Jemma Webster were all named among the bests for the winners. Bonnie Farrell and Maggie Cuthbertson both kicked goals for the Bombers, while Sophie Farrow, Hayley Breward and Kayla Sheehan were all amongst the top players in the side.

TSL Women’s weekly wrap: Round 5 – Blues reclaim top spot as Bombers celebrate first win

LAUNCESTON reminded the Tasmanian State League (TSL) Women’s competition just what it is capable of thanks to a 29-point triumph over the previously undefeated Clarence side at Windsor Park on Saturday. Meanwhile at UTAS Stadium, North Launceston won its first points of the year with an impressive 30-point victory over fellow winless side, Tigers.

The Blues went down in their first loss of the season last weekend to Glenorchy and were keen to make amends against the undefeated Roos. The Blues got off to a strong start, booting the only goal of the first term and then three goals to one by the main break to lead by 14 at halt-time. Controlling the game in the second half, the Blues – led by new Magpie Abbey Green – booted the only three goals of the half to run out 6.5 (41) to 1.6 (12).

The Launceston key forward/ruck made her move from North Melbourne to Victoria Park over the AFL Women’s Trade Period, and certainly impressed for the Blues in the 29-point victory, kicking three goals in a best on ground performance, leading the way inside 50. Camilla Taylor, Daria Bannister and Sian Beeton booted the other goals for the Blues, while Jessie Williams kicked the sole second quarter goal for the Roos. Abbie Hoiberg-Cox, Melissa Smith and Dearne Taylor were also among the best for the winners, while Louisa Marmion, Bronte Scott and Nicole Bresnehan impressed to step up in a losing outfit.

In the other TSL Women’s match, North Launceston got up in a five-goal victory over Tigers to ensure they moved four points clear from the bottom of the table. Both sides were level at quarter time with a goal apiece on the board, but it was the second term where the home side kicked away at UTAS Stadium, booting three goals to zero and holding a 21-point advantage at the half. A tighter second half ensured with the only goal of the half going to the Bombers, helping them to a 5.8 (38) to 1.2 (8) victory, their first of the season.

Maggie Cuthbertson and Hayley Breward both booted two goals and were named among the Bombers best in the win, as Sophie Townsend kicked a sole major for the home team. Jodie Clifford and Sophie Farrow also stood out for North Launceston, while Hailee Baldwin and Mikayla Absolom were strong for Tigers. Priscilla Odwogo kicked the solitary goal for the losers, as Mimosa Middleton Miller and Ruby Shinkfield also stood tall in defeat.

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.

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.

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. She was complemented by a best-on-ground performance from Gillian Miller while Elizabeth Kirkwood, Tyler Roxann, Liarna Reid, Jessica Murphy and Cara Brooke also had impressive performances.

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)

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.

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.
