POSTGAME: AFLW Rd 01 vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts


What a great win. I am super impressed with how far the skills have come on, especially handballs which was easily the weakest link in the girls game. To say it has improved out of sight is not hyperbole.

That was a great win and a fantastic start to the season. To beat the yardstick first up... well.. yeah im pumped.

We’re had some great wins over the journey but that’s one of the best. Superb performance

Rock solid defensively, magnificent contest work. And had the guts and belief to take the game on.

West was outstanding. This time last year she could barely kick the ball. Massive improvement

A 3 goal win away to the Crows. Unreal. They’ve been our buggy team

Everyone contributed. I’m super proud

Go Dees

Well done girls. Cheering loud for you tonight despite razor blades in my throat. 
 

Tayla looking more dangerous through the middle. Midfielders brutal inside. 
 

Crows clearly have some great individuals but couldn’t really get any cohesion in ball movement

Chaplin looks a nice depth defender. Strong body and neat skills.

Sammy Johnson is interesting, cracks in and works hard. Big mid, runs the wing, 2nd ever game and new club at 30! Good on her 

Ivey seems a good worker, keen to see more. CHF always tricky at a new club 

Cant wait to see Goldy back and hopefully Blaith too. The more we run the better we play

Outstanding season opener, away from home and against the reigning champs.  Loved the tackling pressure, handball to advantage and composure of our defence. Fantastic stuff!

You beauty! Awesome win. Purcell and West enormous in the guts, Maddy Gay huge at HB, Birch, Gillard and Lampard excellent. Kate Hore could’ve kicked 4, goalkicking this week. Great game, ground it out against our nemesis away, without Daisy, Bannan or Zanker dominating! Huge win with upside! Perfect!
Looking forward to seeing them play live before our big swans game next week!

Looked like Sammy Johnson was having a nice moment with her boyfriend/husband on the boundary line after she worked her way back to AFLW. Love that stuff.

God, this team has people you just love. Mithen is just a neat, everywhere player - reminds me of Nathan Brown circa 2000s.

Maddie Gay is immense and Libby Birch was just breathing fire back there. West, Purcell and Hanks are just hard at the footy with great balance. 

And Tayla H doesn’t even celebrate when she kicks one from 40 off one step. Like Mark Waugh through covers - it’s a surprise if it doesn’t happen so why bother celebrating…

Oh, and Kate, please, consistent run in with momentum and don’t lean back when you kick it… you’ve got everything else!

@DeeSpencer

did I see you say Paxy was awful last year on the ball? She won a BnF and has been AA 5 out of her 6 years in the game. She is one of our only big bodies and is certainly needed on the ball at times even though she is getting past her prime

Purcell and West 47 touches between them playing in the middle.  Only in their 2nd seasons with us. 

With KP chipping in with 24 of her own, the mids just look awsome. 

BOG would have to be Libby Birch, who held everything together against the top line forward line in the competition.  Hope Goldy gets back soon, because Libby can't do it all on her own.  Gillard looks fantastic and can kick long as well.

Very quiet games from Bannan and Zanker, so plenty of upside to be found there.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
