ISSUES of injury beset Berwick Women’s Football Club once again after taking a 26-point loss to wooden spoon aspirants St Albans.
Up against it from the start with only 19 fit bodies donning the blue and white jersey – including Alana Woodward, Malise Schmolling and Tess Butler who also played in the reserves – Berwick toiled to make inroads, but couldn’t hit the scoreboard.
With former Narre Warren gun Kara Donnellan pulling on the boots for the Spurs – her first of the season in the VWFL – the number five draft pick in the women’s national draft laid siege to all Wickers’ barriers.
Holding their heads up in the loss were Steph Brown, Bianca Jakobsson and Amanda Walsh – jagging a pair of goals each. Danielle McIntyre continued her impressive season thus far, while the usual suspects Courtney Clarkson, Alana Woodward and Romy Timmins roamed the midfield with aplomb.
The reserves emphatically pasted St Albans to the wall in a 8.11 (59) to 1.1 (7) shellacking. Natalie Vandort and Katie Bergroth jagged two goals each while Christie Vassallo was best afield.
In the VWFL’s South East Division, St John’s blew away Chirnside Park with a 106-point thumping as Michelle Densley (four goals), Tayla Gasparini (three) and Stacey Howe (three) impressed in the forward line. Midfielders Bronwyn Rogan (two goals) and Elizabeth Whitfield (one) continued their domination of this division.
Keysborough was challenged by newcomers Seaford, with Natalie Cardamone (three goals), Kaci Hillis and Tayla Coxon best afield in their 20-point low-scoring win. Cranbourne was also made to work by new team Bayswater – snaring a 42-point win as Cahli Parker (five goals) and Kirsten Mcleod (three) proved unmatchable up forward while Areeb Hassan and Naomi Brisbane were also in the best.
