The West Adelaide Women’s team went into  the last minor round game needing to win and hoping that Norwood would lose by enough to make up sufficient percentage to scrape into the final three.

The West Adelaide team certainly did their part in a really hard fought win over North Adelaide.

The team set themselves a goal of winning the hard ball gets, tackles, first possessions and ground ball.

We found ourselves, at each break, to be very close in all of those areas. This saw us have a fantastic win against North Adelaide.

FINAL SCORE:   WEST  6. 8 (44)   |   NORTH 5.4 (34)

Once again Rachelle and Hannah Martin played important roles. Alli Evans and Kym Batley  played well. Kasia Culhane played her best game for the season.

The biggest mention must go to Abbie Ballard who certainly played her best game for the season. Abbie is a 16-year-old who travels from Peake one night a week for training and games.

After the celebration of the win we found out that we had unfortunately missed out on the finals by 2%.

Thanks everyone for the great support of the women’s team.
