Spectacular!

Now I can picture a time when I can go all-out and watch four Demon games in a single weekend.

Unless they're all scheduled in the Sunday twilight slot.

They’re so lucky. I would have dreamed about playing for Melbourne when I was young. I was always told it would never happen. I couldn’t even play for a team because there weren’t any girls leagues where I lived and mixing just didn’t happen back then. So, I was sent to gymnastics and swimming (later diving) while I watched in envy as my brothers got to play, while I had to stick to ‘girls’ sports. Not as if I would have been any good, but I would have loved to give it a go and have fun. I can’t help but envy girls who are able to play in leagues with their brothers. Now they can fulfil their dream of playing for their team, something that was impossible in my day.

The Casey Demons have won their first VFLW game!

Williamstown 5.7.37

Casey 8.1.49

Looks like we finally brought our kicking boots.

Goalkickers: Kaila Bentvelzen 3, Brooke Struylaart  2, Marlee Tatham 1, plus a couple to everyone's favourite, 'Unknown'.

As a VFLW sidenote - the main takeaway I've had from the little I've caught of Darebin, L. Pearce is dominating.

Just watched Casey’s game on the VFLW live stream. It’s my first time watching them this year and I’m pleased to report that I was fairly impressed with our effort.

Unfortunately, we went down to the Bulldogs in a tight one, 28-31.

They tried their absolute guts out though. Tackling pressure was excellent. At times we dominated possession and really locked it in forward 50 but couldn’t put it on the scoreboard (sound familiar?). Bulldogs were down a couple of players in the last quarter, including Ellie Blackburn, and we came at them hard but couldn’t finish it off in the dying minutes.

A bit on our AFLW-listed players:

Smith was in everything, had some classy touches and kicked a great goal.

Cordner took a couple of strong marks in the last quarter (after recovering from an epic face smother)

Newman was unsighted for a lot of the game but kicked a beauty in the last.

Zanker showed so much potential including great forward pressure. Has a beautiful long kick, nearly getting one from 45. Almost won the game with a flying shot on goal in the last quarter but missed. When she starts getting more shots on goal, look out.

Shevlin (who was delisted from our AFLW list) had some good involvement. Wouldn't be surprised if we rookied her.

I never got a handle on what number Jakobsson had so possibly was mistaking her for someone else the entire game… the distant camera work doesn't help!

There were a bunch of ex-Dees playing for the Bulldogs (Berry, Jolly, Mifsud) who all contributed for them, Jolly the most.
