2020/21 NTFL Women’s Premier League weekly wrap – Round 13

THE Northern Territory Football League (NTFL) Women’s Premier League season resumed over the weekend following the Christmas break, with a huge round of action recommencing and seeing the top sides remain in charge of the 2020/21 ladder. Waratah was granted an extra week off thanks to the bye and Pint continued its winning streak with a twelfth straight win on the board, while St Mary’s and Darwin Buffettes continue to hold ground in second and third, respectively, with fourth place Southern Districts continuing its rise up the ladder adding another four points to their tally. All that, and more in our weekly wrap.

DARWIN BUFFETTES | 4.3 | 13.7 | 19.11 | 22.19 (151)
TRACY VILLAGE | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 (0)

Darwin Buffettes got off the perfect start opening the round, with a huge 151-point victory putting the side in an excellent position heading into the latter stage of the season. While the massive win did come against the lowly Tracy Village, who are yet to win a game this season and have had little scoring opportunities, the Buffettes more than proved once again that they are one of the teams to beat this season with a plethora of key options around the ground who can take control and command the footy. The tough match saw Tracy Village once again rendered scoreless, with no bests named, while the Buffs also are yet to name their best on ground. That being said, there is no doubt Ashanti Bush had a huge impact on proceedings with a whopping seven goals to her name, aided by the likes of Melinda Taylor and Talia Corrie who booted three apiece and Michelle Sliwinski (two), with seven more single goalkickers also on the board. While the Buffs were not at their most accurate in this win, it was more than enough to prove the side will be a tough contender heading into the last few rounds of the 2020/21 season.

NIGHTCLIFF | 0.1 | 0.3 | 0.5 | 2.6 (18)
PINT | 3.3 | 6.5 | 9.6 | 11.7 (73)

Ladder leaders Pint continued their excellent form with another straight win on the board, with three goalless quarters from the Tigers testament to not only the scoring ability of the Queen Ants – who booted three goals in each quarter – but also the defensive pressure the side continuously applies week in week out. While Nightcliff certainly brought some hunger, it was not enough to really test the top side, who saw their reliable core group of players step up as per usual with four multiple goalkickers in Jessie BaumerJasmyn HewettReni Hicks and Claudia Fabris, two of whom were also named amongst the best alongside Hillary GrubbCasey Morris and Amy Chittick. For Nightcliff, the two final quarter goals came from Amy Pittman and Lauren Gooden, with Pittman named amongst the best with Emily Casey and Eliza Morrison. Pint’s consistency is what makes them so threatening at the moment, leaving sides unable to penetrate their defence or maintain control of the footy.

PALMERSTON MAGPIES | 1.0 | 2.1 | 2.1 | 3.1 (19)
ST MARY’S | 4.2 | 7.2 | 8.5 | 9.6 (60)

It was too little to late for the Magpies in this matchup against second-placed St Mary’s, with the side applying tough defensive pressure in the second half but ultimately unable to stop an early rampage from St Mary’s. An excellent first half from the Saints was enough to control proceedings with seven goals to two, though inaccuracy seemed to plague the usually reliable side in the second half with 2.4 recorded as the Magpies switched on the afterburners. The 41-point buffer was more than enough to maintain second on the ladder though, with seven goalkickers plying their trade out the front and both Jasmine Anderson and Laelia Dunn booting two apiece thanks to the work rate of Shailyn Doreen Peris and J’Noemi Anderson, who were both named in the bests. For the Magpies, Georgina Garling booted two, aided by Nadine Braun who slotted the side’s third goal while Tabitha May, Iesha Ronberg and Billie Byers proved crucial as ever.

WANDERERS | 2.0 | 2.0 | 2.1 | 4.2 (26)
SOUTHERN DISTRICTS | 1.4 | 4.4 | 4.7 | 6.7 (43)

The closest match of the round saw a great challenge from the Wanderers as they pressured the ever-improving Districts outfit, however it was just not enough in this encounter with the Crocs maintaining control and running out 17-point victors. While the Wanderers grabbed an early lead, kicking two straight goals in the first term, the Crocs had more scoring opportunities and capitalised on their missed chances as the second term rolled in. A highly defensive and competitive third quarter saw neither side really gain control, with both sides adding to their respective tallies in the final quarter and seeing the Crocs remain in front. While Districts are yet to release goalkickers and bests, Wanderers’ ever reliable Kaitlyn Armstrong continued her impressive form with another three goals to her name, named in the best alongside Sophia Mauboy and Cassie Ormsby.

2020/21 NTFL Women’s Premier League weekly wrap – Round 6

ANOTHER weekend of blowout margins headed up Round 6 of the NTFL Women’s Premier League, with three of the four winners conceding less than 10 points in their respective matches and little changing on the ladder with three of the top four collecting significant wins. While Nightcliff had an eye-opening encounter with Darwin Buffettes they still sit within the top four, and Southern Districts seem to have gotten into the swing of things now with a second straight win after four consecutive losses to start the season. All that, and more, in our weekly women’s wrap.

NIGHTCLIFF 1.0 | 1.0 | 1.0 | 1.0 (6)
DARWIN BUFFETTES 0.3 | 3.5 | 5.5 | 8.7 (55)

Darwin Buffettes have continued their excellent start to the season, limiting fourth-ranked Nightcliff to just one goal and overcoming a shaky start to come away with a 49-point margin. It was an explosive second and fourth quarter that saw the side really create a buffer against the Tigers, booting 3.2 in each quarter and backing it up around the ground with their defensive effort. For Nightcliff, it was a disappointing outcome especially given their great start to the season, meaning they will really have to lift their game to get back to their early season form with three straight losses on the board.

For Nightcliff, the side’s lone goalkicker Emma-Lou Wolsey remains atop the goalkicking leaderboard by the skin of her teeth, sitting equal first alongside Darwin’s Zoe Anderson who matched her with one goal of her own this week too. Mickayla Ward and Sophie Hatzismalis were both named best for the Tigers, while for the Buffs there were a flurry of gamemakers around the ground with Machaelia Roberts (three goals), Delsey Ah Wang (two goals), Lucy Louis and Jemma Iacono putting on solid performances.

 

TRACY VILLAGE 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 (0)
ST MARY’S 7.2 | 12.3 | 13.6 | 17.8 (110)

It was another disappointing outing for Tracy Village this round, making for the side’s fifth straight loss and second time in two weeks that they were unable to put a score on the board. To the Saints’ credit though, they did not leave any stone unturned with a shot at rocketing their percentage this week sitting in second on the ladder, seeing 11 players hit the scoreboard and only two register multiple majors, such was their complete and utter dominance on the contest.

St Mary’s did not seem to put a single foot wrong throughout, navigating traffic with ease and seeing Danielle Ponter and Michaela Long enter the leading goalkicker list with four goals apiece. Both players were named among the best, as were Megan WilliamsonFatnowna Frances and Shailyn Doreen Peris who all put a goal on the board in the comprehensive victory.

 

WARATAH 0.0 | 0.0 | 1.0 | 1.1 (7)
PINT 2.1 | 2.3 | 3.4 | 5.6 (36)

Waratah narrowly escaped a goalless outcome when they took on Pint, booting a major in the third term to edge back the margin slightly, but seeing the Queen Ants reign supreme in a lower scoring affair than expected. While certainly not the outcome the Warriors wanted, Pint still sit atop the table undefeated so to come out and limit Pint’s firepower up forward is certainly a credit to the Waratah outfit. That being said, Pint was clinical once more in this effort with the work rate high and expectations higher a third of the way through the season.

For Waratah, the ever reliable Jenna Singh was the lone goalkicker, while Pint’s Jessie Baumer booted two to sit on six goals from three matches, and was joined by Gemma Cusack, Jacqueline Downey and Erin Lavis on the goalkicking list this round.

 

PALMERSTON MAGPIES 0.3 | 0.3 | 1.5 | 3.8 (26)
SOUTHERN DISTRICTS 0.2 | 3.4 | 5.6 | 6.6 (42)

Southern Districts have inched their way up the ladder with a second straight win this week, downing the Palmerston Magpies and proving they are capable of much better performances than they have put out thus far in season 2020. It was a seesawing affair between the two sides, seeing both teams battle for the upper hand and finding a couple of purple patches to extend or reduce the margin, with the Districts’ three goal to nil second quarter allowing them to take the lead and hold onto it. While the Magpies had a better final quarter, booting 2.3 to Districts’ 1.0, it was unfortunately not enough after allowing the Crocs to get on top early in the high pressure outing.

For the winning side it was Tayla Thorn and Jessie Brock who led the charge out the front, booting two goal apiece, while young gun Grace Mulvahil and milestone 50-gamer Ebony Miller also found the big sticks. Malory Nankervis and Rhiannon Busch were named among the best in a solid and much better team effort from the Crocs. For the Magpies, Kiara White, Natasha Medbury and Jasmine Duturbure booted a goal apiece, with the former also named among the best alongside Tabitha May and Iesha Ronberg.

NTFL Women’s Premier League wrap: Round 3 – Buffettes continue unbeaten streak

ROUND 3 of Northern Territory Football League Women’s (NTFLW) saw a massive switch in momentum, with only one side remaining undefeated and in the same position on the ladder as they sat prior to the weekend’s matches. Meanwhile, Tracy Village got its first win on the board for the season leaving only Big River Hawks yet to win a match at this early stage of the season.

WARATAH 0.6 | 1.10 | 2.12 | 4.17 (41)
NIGHTCLIFF 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.1 (1)

GOALS

Waratah: M. Cooper, A. Love, J. Smyth, L. O’Shea.

Nightcliff: L. de Hommel, H. Turnbull, E. Wolsey, E. Morrison, E. Johnson

Inaccuracy plagued last season’s premiers in the opening match of Round 3, with Waratah booting a whopping 17 behinds to only four goals. While it was easily enough to get them over the line, keeping their opposition in Nightcliff – undefeated until now – to only one behind, it could be a frustrating sign of what is to come for the Warriors with a second unsuccessful match in front of goal. Meanwhile, this match sees Nightcliff lose their unbeaten streak to start the season, dealt a savage blow by Waratah and only producing one behind for the match. It was a relatively even start to the match with both sides unable to find the goals, however it was Waratah’s ability to hold onto the footy that kept them one step ahead despite Nightcliff’s constant defensive efforts. For Nightcliff, Laura de Hommel put in tough slog as did Hannah Turnbull, while Waratah’s Jordan Smyth and Jenna Singh impressed on their way back up the ladder. While Nightcliff have plenty to improve on they will need to keep their confidence up despite this loss, while Waratah will need to tidy up their accuracy if they hope to compete with consistency and pile on the pressure throughout the season.

SOUTHERN DISTRICTS 2.2 | 5.4 | 8.10 | 12.13 (85)
PINT 1.0 | 1.0 | 1.0 | 2.0 (12)

GOALS

Southern Districts: E. Miller 5, M. Derschow 2, T. Holtze, K. Patterson, M. Breed, S. Hoogeveen-Hill, C. Deegan.

Pint: N/A

The Southern Districts well and truly earned their position in second this week with the biggest margin of the round, locking the ball in their forward half and forcing Pint to scrap for every ball. While inaccuracy was a minor issue for Districts it did not seem to phase the home side, booting 12 goals and 13 behinds on their way to an impressive victory and percentage to boot. Ebony Miller starred for Southern Districts with five majors to her name, closely followed by Mickaela Derschow with two while five other players put goals on the board. For Pint, strong efforts inside 50 from Shailyn Doreen Peris and Cara Evans were unfortunately not enough, and despite a goal apiece the defensive strength of the Crocs saw them take plenty of turnover ball to keep the Districts forward-line busy.

PALMERSTON MAGPIES 1.1 | 4.4 | 4.5 | 4.7 (31)
DARWIN BUFFETTES 2.0 | 3.0 | 3.0 | 6.0 (36)

GOALS

Palmerston Magpies: A. Moreen 2, F. Puruntatameri, K. Whittaker.
Darwin Buffettes: M. Ellis 2, R. De Santis, D. Carbone, T. Bullen, T. Paterson.

BEST

Palmerston Magpies: T. May, J. Baird, B. Byers, N. Medbury, T. Williams, I. Ronberg
Darwin Buffettes: B. Stokes, T. Hart-Aluni, M. Ellis, M. Roberts, N. Dunn

It was a final quarter three-goal blitz that got the Buffettes over the line against the Magpies, down by 11 points at the final change and needing a big push to the finish. The Magpies had a slow start out of the games with the Buffettes outscoring them in the first before the tides changed with the Magpies managing a 10-point lead heading into the first change. While both sides struggled to get points on board in the third with only the one behind conceded, the Buffettes well and truly put on the accelerator in the final term to boot three goals to nil and take the win, staying at the top of the ladder as the only undefeated side. The likes of Arthurina Moreen (two goals) and Tabitha May were impressive for the Magpies, while Janet Baird and Billie Byers were also up there with a willingness to contest every ball. For the Buffettes, Michelle Ellis added two more goals to her early season tally, while Bianca Stokes and Tayla Hart-Aluni put on a solid performance once more.

WANDERERS 0.0 | 2.1 | 2.1 | 5.6 (36)
ST MARY’S 2.3 | 4.5 | 4.8 | 4.10 (34)

GOALS

Wanderers: K. Motlop, S. De Satge, T. Davern, M. Wood, J. Jones-Cubillo.
St Mary’s: N/A.

BEST

Wanderers: S. De Satge, P. Koulakis, M. Johnston, C. Vea Vea, T. Parriman, L. Motlop
St Mary’s: N/A

It was a massive confidence boosting come-from-behind win that the Wanderers needed this week and that’s certainly what they got, prevailing against an unconvincing and inaccurate St Mary’s side to hop into fourth on the ladder. While St Mary’s got to a speedy start and held on for majority of the match, the Eagles put in the hard yards when it mattered most to come away with the two-point victory. Five individual goal kickers got on the board for Wanderers in the victory, with Shekeine De Satge named best-on-ground for the Eagles with a dominant performance and a goal to boot. Meanwhile, Pierre-Angelique Koulakis stood up once more despite the Saints’ best efforts.

TRACY VILLAGE 1.1 | 3.4 | 3.4 | 4.6 (30)
BIG RIVER HAWKS 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 | 0.0 (0)

GOALS

Tracy Village: N. Jones 2, S. Bailie-mace, B. McDougall.
Big River Hawks: N/A.

BEST

Tracy Village: K. Brown, G. Young, N. Jones, A. Biggs, K. Marschall, Z. Clarke
Big River Hawks: N/A

Tracy Village well and truly owned the Big River Hawks on Sunday, handing the Hawks their third successive loss and lifting the Razorbacks to second last on the ladder. While the Razorbacks well and truly bounced back from their massive 62-point loss to Pint last week with this win on the board, the Hawks had as much opportunity to raise the bar and get on the board but were unable to put a score on the board for the second week in a row – though keeping their opposition to only 30 points will surely be a positive outcome after two massive losses in the opening rounds. For Tracy Village, a win on the board at this early stage of the season will be a massive confidence booster, with Nikesha Jones pulling on the boots for the first time this season and kicking two goals, while Kiarna Brown, Gabby Young and Alexandra Biggs all stood up.
