NTFL Women’s Premier League: Round 18 – Waratah and Southern District put on scintillating performance

THE final round of the Northern Territory Football League Women’s (NTFLW) saw the top teams such as Waratah and Southern District once again flex their muscles, while it also featured a surprise upset with the Buffettes stunned in their clash. It marked the final game of the home and away season for Tracy Village, St Mary’s and Wanderers who will all be looking ahead to a bigger and better 2020/21 season.

Waratah: C. Fabris, M. Hunter, T. O”Hehir, B. Martin, I. Rapson-Staropoli

It was a convincing performance from Waratah who dismantled Tracy Village to run out 100-point victors. The Tahs’ were on from the get-go establishing an early lead and not looking back gradually adding to the margin. Tracy Village’s only score came in the second quarter with most of the game one way traffic heading towards Waratahs forward. They proved too strong across the board putting up a wall in defence and simply attacking the scoreboard any time an opportunity came their way. Waratah managed four goals each quarter apart from the second when it only recorded two majors but suffered from inaccuracy with 17 points to its name. Lisa Roberts was a real live wire up forward for Waratah helping herself to five goals, while Monet Hunter also chipped in with three majors of her own, keeping her strong form in front of goal well and truly alive. Amy Chittick also made an impact inside the forward arc with two majors while Tarryn O’Heir and Breanna Martin were both named in the bests for their impressive efforts. Isabella Rapson-Staropoli shone bright once again with her ability to find the footy. It was a disappointing outing for Tracy Village with the likes of Alex Lang, Catherine White and Aeysha Angel digging deep but unfortunately it was not enough to trouble the scoreboard with Waratah simply unstoppable in every aspect.

SOUTHERN DISTRICT 5.5 | 8.8 | 13.10 | 19.17 (131)
ST MARYS 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 (0)

St Mary’s: N/A

Southern District pummelled St Mary’s by a whopping 131 points in what was a complete and utter one-sided affair. The Southern Districts win never really looked in doubt with the home team quickly asserting themselves on their opponents. A five-goal first quarter set the tone for the match, and although they had a quieter second term, they picked up the pace after half-time with accuracy proving no real issue. St Mary’s failed to stop the forward momentum of District consistently outnumbered at the contest and unable to move out of their back half. In the past three games Ebony Miller, has nailed a staggering 22 goals 10 of which came in this performance highlighting just how much of a presence she has up forward and her goal sense. Miller provided a constant option inside 50 but she was not the only one to get on the board with debutante Kasey Marsden managing two goals and Grace Mulvahil also nailing two majors to extend her sides lead. The scoring load was further spread across a host of players with Tahlia Holtze, Megan Craufurd and Maili Clarke getting amongst the action with a goal apiece while Malory Nankervis made her way into the bests for a second consecutive week. Aaliyah Bailey and Ashlee Harris combined well for St Mary’s but it was not enough to quell the constant onslaught from Southern District.

BESTS:

Pint: N/A
Darwin Buffettes: J. Dodsworth, D. Carbone, K. Duggan, B. Stokes, C. Boyd

The biggest upset of the round came at the hands of Pint downing the fourth placed Darwin Buffettes in convincing fashion. Pint got the early ascendancy leaving the Buffettes stunned and unable to get their usual ball movement up and running. Darwin were rendered goalless in the opening half credit to Pint’s extreme pressure, while the home side piled on five goals to all but end any chance of a comeback. Pint had answers for everything their opposition threw at them and while they were slightly inaccurate in front of the big sticks they did enough to get over the line and limit the Buffettes from getting a real run at it. Kristen Smits and Jessie Baumer both hit the scoreboard once again for Pint with four goals collectively while Cassie Henderson rounded out the scoring contingent with a goal of her own.  For Darwin, Crystal Browne, Tameka Bullen and Bianca Stokes shared the load but their efforts fell short unable to register enough opportunities to hit the scoreboard and turn the tables. Youngster Dominique Carbone worked diligently for each and every ball that came her way named in the bests for the third consecutive week with teammate Kylie Duggan also plying her trade across the ground.

PALMERSTON 2.5 | 3.6 | 5.9 | 9.9 (63)
WANDERERS 0.0 | 3.1 | 3.2 | 4.3 (27)

Palmerston: J. Brock, J. Baird, T. May, L. Motlap, C. Delacoeur, K. White
Wanderers: N/A

The final game of the round saw Palmerston once again showcase their strength against the seventh placed Wanderers with a solid 36-point win. The Magpies were in complete control from the first whistle but were plagued with inaccuracy scoring five behinds. Things evened up in the second term with the Wanderers piling on the pressure and getting back within a mere five points thanks to three goals. But that did not last long with Palmerston hitting back after half time and running away with the game and keeping the Wanderers to just one major. Palmerston’s attacking 50 was dictated by Laquioya Motlap with the forward booting three goals with teammate Jessie Brock also chiming in with two goals of her own. Arthurina Moreen continued her hot form in front of goal recording yet another major while Iesha Ronberg also contributed to the winning score line with a goal. Cammie Delacoeur plied her trade for the Magpies with Janet Baird also making her presence felt in the victory. Muk Muks duo Lucille Motlop and Shekeine De Stage worked tirelessly but ultimately could not stop the Magpies from powering on.

NTFL Women’s Premier League: Round 17 – Magpies and Wanderers flex muscles

ROUND 17 of the Northern Territory Football League Women’s (NTFLW) marked another mixed bag of results with two blowout games and a tight battle between one and two on the ladder. There were plenty of stellar individual performances in front of goal with two players finishing the round with seven and eight goals respectively.

PALMERSTON MAGPIES 5.4 | 11.7 | 17.11 | 21.16 (142)
ST MARYS 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 (0)

St Mary’s: N/A.

BESTS:

Magpies: F. Puruntatameri, J. Brock, B. Joran, T. May, B. Byers, J. Baird
St Mary’s: N/A

The Palmerston Magpies were in complete control from the get-go and kept their foot on the throat throughout all four quarters, ultimately pummelling the lowly Saints. The Magpies were simply unstoppable beating St Mary’s at every contest and most importantly capitalising on their opportunities despite kicking 16 behinds. Their physical pressure was intense, blocking the Saints’ every opportunity to push forward and using their attacking play to run rampant and continuously pepper the goals. Freda Puruntatameri was in a league of her own inside forward 50 for the Magpies, finding the big sticks with ease to walk away with an eight-goal haul and take her season tally to 24 goals, while Arthurina Moreen showcased her goal sense in bagging three majors. Moreen was not alone with Jessie Brock and Natasha Medbury also nailing three goals apiece to rub insult into wounds. St Mary’s failed to register a single point such was the Magpies’ pressure and hunt on the footy. Tabitha May and Janet Baird were prominent across the board for the Magpies consistently finding the pill and using it to full effect while St Mary’s duo Rachel Ponter and Sharna Edwards were consistent despite the thumping.

NIGHTCLIFF 0.0 | 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.4 (4)
SOUTHERN DISTRICTS 1.5 | 3.7 | 6.9 | 7.10 (52)

Southern Districts: L. Jeffrey, M. Nankervis, B. Clarke, T. Holtze, R. Busch

The clash between fourth and fifth did not live up to the hype with the Southern Districts making light work of Nightcliff and rendering them goalless. Although it was a slow start for Districts they steadily built into the game but were plagued by inaccuracy, recording more points than goals (7.10). But that did not seem to deter the outcome with the Districts running out quite comfortably against Nightcliff who simply could not get going. Nightcliff did not manage a score in the opening term credit to Southern Districts’ extreme pressure which they applied throughout the match. Ebony Miller led from the front once again for Southern Districts finding the big sticks and converting, finishing with two goals to her name while Bella Clarke also troubled the scorers with two majors to her name. Grace Mulvahil returned to the goal kickers list in her sides’ win while Tahlia Holtze also nailed a goal in what was a complete performance by Districts. Although they struggled to get on the scoreboard, the trio of Laura De Hommel, Emma-Lou Wolsey and Kirra Hill-Carter worked tirelessly to add some respectability to the outcome of the game.

Tracy Village: N/A

Wanderers trounced the out of-form Tracy Village with a whopping 131-point victory. The Eagles got off to a flying start piling on six goals in the opening term – the equal highest of the game – showcasing their ability to turn and just go bang. Tracy Village struggled to find any synergy across the field credit to Wanderers’ pressure and strength around the coal face to win the ball and bomb it forward. Tishara Davern was in blistering form with the 19-year-old lighting it up in front of goal with seven majors. Davern gobbled up anything that came her way inside forward 50 while Jaylene Chevalier made her presence felt with three goals and Pierre-Angelique Koulakis also hit the scoreboard with two majors of her own. Keyona De Satge and Sophie Mauboy showed their worth being named in the bests for their efforts for Wanderers. In what has been a trying season for Tracy Village Lisa-Maree Toner and Zhoe Clarke notched up their 16th game of the season to highlight their durability, reliability and consistency.

DARWIN BUFFETTES 0.0 | 0.2 | 1.4 | 3.4 (22)
WARATAH 1.1 | 2.2 | 2.5 | 4.6 (30)

Waratah: L. Roberts, S. Nalder, G. Cusack, M. Gault, P. Cox

The top of the table clash brought plenty of excitement with only eight points separating the teams at the final siren. Waratah drew on every bit of class and composure in the dying stages of the game to prevail and really stamp their authority on the competition heading into finals. The Buffettes struggled to get on the board early, going scoreless in the first quarter but a fourth quarter comeback almost gifted them that all-elusive win against the top of the table Waratah. Youngster Tayla Hart-Aluni led the way in attack for the Buffettes slotting two timely goals to keep her side in the hunt while Jemma Iacono also played her role in the attacking 50 with a major. Dominique Carbone continues to get better as time goes on for the ‘Tahs while Meredith Turner was named in the best for the second time in three weeks highlighting her hot form. Despite their best efforts the Warriors seemed to have all the answers with Madison Yarran doing damage on the scoreboard with two goals, while Lauren O’Shea and Monet Hunter also chipped in to get their side over the line. Sue Nalder backed up her strong performance from last week with another solid outing while Pippa Cox made her presence felt for Waratah.

NTFL Women’s Premier League weekend preview: Round 5

A top four clash and some mid-table battles are among the games this weekend in Round 5 of the Northern Territory Football League (NTFL) Women’s Premier League.

PINT vs. ST MARY’S
Saturday, November 2, 12.30pm
TIO Oval No. 2

In what could be a mid-table clash with ramifications for finals spots early in the season, the sixth placed Pint host the eighth placed St Mary’s at TIO Oval, No. 2. The sides are coming off very different results last week which makes up the one-win difference between the sides, following St Mary’s heavy 45-point loss at the hands of reigning premiers, Waratah, while Pint got up on the road with a 29-point victory over Nightcliff. The Saints’ Round 4 loss marked three consecutive defeats since their thrashing win over Big River Hawks in Round 1. Danielle Ponter is a key player for the Saints, having brought all of her experience from Adelaide’s AFL Women’s program, while Aailyah Bailey and Nikita Long have been among the able to get some consistency into the team. Pint has had a yo-yo start to the season, with two big wins, a heavy loss to Southern Districts, and a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Palmerston Magpies in Round 1. Adelaide’s Jasmyn Hewett let loose last week to boot three of her team’s seven goals in the victory, while Emma Greaves and Kristen Smits have also been sources of scoring in the opening rounds of the season. Pint goes in as favourite for this clash as it looks to stay in touch with the top four, while St Mary’s needs to win in order to maintain a place in the mid-table logjam and not fall too far behind.

DARWIN BUFFETTES vs. NIGHTCLIFF
Saturday, November 2, 12.30pm
TIO Stadium

The team to beat this season thus far is the Buffettes, with Darwin yet to lose in season 2019/20, sitting a win and a massive percentage clear of Waratah and Wanderers. The last two weeks have brought the Buffettes back to reality despite getting away with the points, defeating Palmerston Magpies (five points) and Southern Districts (10 points) after combined wins of 250 points in the opening two rounds against Tracy Village and Big River Hawks. Tikesa Docherty-Cole booted bags of four and three in her two games this season, while Machaelia Roberts was a massive talent but will be missed when she relocates to Victoria to play with Collingwood following being drafted into the AFL Women’s. Young talents, Dominique Carbone and Tayla Hart-Aluni have also been key to the Buffettes’ success thus far, booting three goals in four games each. On the other hand, Nightcliff has lost its past two games, smashed by Waratah (41 points) and then going down to Pint (29 points) after wins over Wanderers – the only team to do so thus far – and St Mary’s in the opening two rounds. Emma-Lou Wolsey and Laura De Hommel have been named among the best on every occasion, while Shantel Miskin-Ripia has only played a couple of games, but booted six goals, including four on one occasion. The Tigers will be keen to measure up against the ladder leaders in this game.

TRACY VILLAGE vs. SOUTHERN DISTRICTS
Saturday, November 2, 2.30pm
TIO Oval No. 2

Ninth placed Tracy Village will hope to bounce back from what has been an undesirable start to the season, losing three of the first four games by a combined 299 points. Luckily for the Razorbacks they managed to hold off newcomers, Big River Hawks by five points to grab a victory, but Southern Districts will be a tougher assignment in Round 5. The Razorbacks have had quite a number of players already pulling on the jumper this season, with the likes of Gabrielle Young, Tara Everett and Alexandra Biggs among the best, while Nickesha Jones is averaging a goal a game. The Crocs sit at 2-2, but one was a loss to Wanderers which was reversed after having an extra player on game day. Last week the Crocs took it right up to the Buffettes, going down by 10 points but showing they are every bit a finals contender. In 2019/20, Ebony Miller has booted eight goals in four games, with a game-high five goals to be a real influence up forward, while the youth of Mattea Breed and Bella Clarke has provided great enthusiasm throughout the season to-date. Southern Districts should win the game, but stranger things have happened.

PALMERSTON MAGPIES vs. BIG RIVER HAWKS
Saturday, November 2, 3pm
Palmerston Oval

Palmerston Magpies sit ahead of the bell curve in fourth, but are only marginally ahead of their nearest rivals, so a win here is non-negotiable against the struggling new side in Big River Hawks. The Magpies are competitive in every game, with the first three rounds decided by two, 10 and five points respectively, however the Magpies have gone down in two of those matches. The last time out in Round 4 was a different story, with a thumping 20-goal win over Tracy Village stamping the visiting side’s authority on the competition. A win here could also see them move to third with second placed Waratah and third placed Wanderers going head-to-head. Arthurina Moreen has been the hero up forward for the Magpies, booting seven goals in four games, five of which came last week. Janet Baird and Taylah Williams are among others who have enjoyed strong starts to the season thus far in the black and white. For the Big River Hawks, there has not been much joy this season, but one positive is the games are getting closer, with two smashings in the opening two rounds combining for a losing margin of 191 points. In the last two rounds, the losses totalled 25 points. Crystal Browne and Deanna Peckham have played every game this season and provided good support, while Jayde De La Couer has been strong in the forward half. Palmerston would be heavy favourites to take out this game.

WARATAH vs. WANDERERS
Sunday, November 3
Gardens Oval

After a shock loss in Round 1 to Southern Districts, reigning premiers Waratah have got back to business as usual in the past three weeks, notching up wins against Palmerston Magpies, Nightcliff and St Mary’s, with each win looking more impressive by the day. While their percentage is nowhere near that of Darwin’s, Waratah still has a gap on Wanderers, who they need to beat to ensure they stay in the top three. With Palmerston likely to win its match, Waratah could slide to fourth, or even fifth if Southern Districts can have a big upset win over Darwin. The Warriors have shared the ball around this season and in front of goal, with Julieanna Kerinaiua and Monet Hunter both slotting three goals, while Lisa Roberts has been an important source of leadership for the club. For Wanderers, they also bounced back from a disappointing loss to Nightcliff in Round 1, but their formline may be one to be wary with given they had a reversed win against Southern Districts in Round 2, and narrow wins over St Mary’s and Big River Hawks who are bottom four sides. This will be the biggest test in a few weeks, and the likes of Shekeine De Satge and Morgan Johnston will need to be at their best to get up. The likes of Sophie Armitstead and Kayliah Motlop could do some damage through the midfield and up forward, but will have to really step up in this game if the Eagles are to cause an upset against what has been the benchmark team over the past few years.

NTFL Women’s Premier League wrap: Round 4 – Waratah on its way up

NONE of the five home sides this week got wins on the board, with the Darwin Buffettes continuing their impressive unbeaten record to start the season, while both Waratah and Palmerston Magpies have pushed their way up the ladder to sit in second and fourth respectively after respective shaky starts to the season.

The opening match of the round started out relatively close with the Saints getting on top early, before Waratah well and truly got on top of the home side by half-time. With the scoring end after half time giving St Mary’s an opportunity to take back some control, it was not enough against the reigning premiers who kicked four goals and held the Saints scoreless in the final term to win by a solid 45-point margin. While Waratah were true to form, missing more attempts on goal than they scored, their high-quality forward line produced the goods once more with four players putting multiple goals on the board. Monet Hunter was prolific putting ball to boot, kicking three majors alone to almost outscore the Saints, while Rebecca Pryer put in the hard yards across the four terms to put their third consecutive win on the board.

It was a solid and impressive win for the Wanderers this week, with the Eagles toppling the league’s newest side and putting another win on the board to take the side up to three victories – albeit one by default in Round 2 thanks to a player breach. While the Hawks have had a rough start to the competition they have shown some good signs in recent weeks and should be relatively pleased with this outcome, keeping their consistency up for a second match in a row after two massive losses to start the season. While the Hawks kept close for the first half of the game thanks to Eagles inaccuracy, the Eagles cleared up their act in the second half to well and truly earn the win. For the Wanderers, Morgan Johnston put two goals on the board to open her account this season, while Shekeine De Satge and Pierre-Angelique Koulakis impressed once more in the victory, with the side sitting up in third.

Tracy Village were dealt another rough trot again this round, going down by a whopping 120 points to Palmerston Magpies in the highest scoring match of the round. Arthurina Moreen proved why she is a key player for the Magpies with five goals under her belt against the Razorbacks, who were on the back foot from the starting whistle. The Razorbacks snuck a goal onto the board early thanks to Bonnie McDougall, aided by the efforts of Kiri Marschall and Lisa-Maree Toner, but were unable to penetrate the Magpies’ backline for long with a solid defensive effort from Palmerston rebounding entries and constantly pushing the footy back down the ground. Tulaha Jeffrey was key for the Magpies, booting two goals and creating plenty of setup play, while three other individuals put multiple goals on the board showcasing the side’s versatility and range of options inside forward 50.

The Buffettes were put through their paces again this week when they took on Southern Districts, defeating the Crocs by 10 points to uphold their position atop the ladder. It was a scoreless third term from the Districts that gave the Buffettes the opportunity to slam home victory, with the Crocs unable to force their way through Darwin’s impenetrable defensive unit enough to get over the line, despite rendering the Buffettes goalless in the final term. The Buffettes well and truly took advantage of the clear scoring end in the first and third quarters, applying scoreboard pressure to keep the Districts chasing on the back foot even when they had the wind in their favour. For the Buffettes, Bianca Stokes and Calista Boyd kicked two goals apiece to open up the match, while Nicolette Dunn and Michelle Ellis also created plenty of opportunity around the ground, able to impact on the contest.

Pint: N/A

The final match of the round saw a battle between third and sixth, with Nightcliff’s fairytale start to the season well and truly ended after two solid losses in a row. Pint were far too good for the Tigers from the get-go, kicking three goals in the first term to set up a solid lead by quarter time. Though inaccuracy was a minor issue for Pint in the second half, they had taken the lead and were unwilling to relinquish it to the Tigers who despite their best efforts were only able to put on one goal after half time. Despite the loss, Laura de Hommel and Emma-Lou Wolsey contested well throughout while Mickayla Ward kicked a debut goal in her inaugural NTFL Women’s match. For the victors, Jasmyn Hewett added another three goals to her season bank, proving she is a solid option forward and certainly one to watch out for.
