Women’s Preliminary Finals Preview

What a great weekend for our Women’s teams with both winning their Semi-Finals to go through to Preliminary Finals this weekend. The Men’s teams had a tougher time of it with both Seniors and Reserves going down to Emmaus St. Leo’s and the Thirds losing to a strong Williamstown CYMS.

The Women’s Preliminary Finals will both be played at Mentone Playing Fields Oval 2, with Seniors at 2pm and Reserves at 11:30am. Hope to see you there!

The VAFA preview for the Senior Women says:

Yarra Old Grammarians v Canterbury

Form: WWWWL (YOGs) v WWLLW (C)  |  Head to Head: 1-1

Thoughts: The Cobras broke free of consecutive Round 13 & Round 14 losses in the “do or die” semi-final last weekend against South Melbourne Districts to make it here, while Yarra fell agonisingly short to the Renegades (four points). If Canterbury can replicate their score from last weekend, or better yet improve upon their 11 points with additional majors, then another victory over the Bushrangers in this, the most important game of the year so far, will be within reach. The YOGs, however, have a plethora of contributors who can swing momentum, none more prevalent than Sarah Kerr, Lucy Schneider and Phoebe Wolff.
