AFLW: QF vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts


Magnificent performance after quarter time

Even contribution across the board but i thought Purcell and Lampard were great. Bannan all class 

We'll get great confidence and belief from that fightback. Can't see us losing the prelim but we can't afford to start like that again. Asking for trouble if we do

Go Dees

Thanks Demonland for the best coverage of the match in the current (wilderness) part of the land where I’m temporarily residing.  No TV,  no access to AFL site presumably because of demand, no radio coverage because of the Cricket World Cup.  Well done Demonland and all Demonlanders who contributed to my evening.  And of course, thanks to our wonderful AFLW team, which appears to have made a remarkable comeback!  Now it’s time for a Cognac.

Loz Pearce clearly wasn’t right, full credit to Harris rucking so much. Hopefully the week off sorts Loz out.

Our mids who have been bullied by the Crows for years really got on top. Purcell and West super in tight.

Hanks and Mitho getting inside and out and Paxy in the high half forward role.

I liked the use of Hore on ball if she’s struggling forward and I think they even sent her to Marinoff to clamp her late.

Plenty of improvement too, with missed chances in the first and third especially and some uncharacteristic mistakes by some of the defenders.

What was good by the team, is our game plan got us on top as the game progressed.

Adelaide like many "ageing" experienced and skilful  sides came out really strong, but could not sustain the intensity while we adjusted  then over powered them.   
I assume we'll play the prelim at Ikon too? Hopefully we get a few training runs on it over the next 2 weeks to learn about the ground, like the bounce :)

Above everything else, that was an incredibly physical match, up there with any men's game I've ever seen. Womens' footy between two good sides is now at the point that it is legitimately exciting in its own right as a spectacle and a great representation of what Australian football is all about.

Great win. We played Adelaide really well at their physical game. There wee a few moments I really enjoyed tonite. Bannons run in the 2nd was delirious. How many times will you see a mens player get on a run like that. Practically never. 

Purcell I thaught was our best player and I love West going in for the footy like a bull in a chook shed. Apart from their pumped up start I thaught our backline players were excellent. Gay, Birch and Gillard were great all night.

Just got home from the game. 
Wonderful fight back by the girls after a horror start; by halftime we had the game looking like a ‘Melbourne game’ and went on from there. 
Went total fan boi post game and got a bunch of players autographs for my kids. 😍🤩

And somehow ended up having a chat with Kate Roffey - very nice lady. Asked me questions about my support for the Dees, etc and was genuinely engaged, no bull[censored]. When I congratulated her on helping bring success to the club, she said ‘we’re nowhere near done with yet, these girls need a flag next’. Then she stood in that race and embraced every single player coming off the field; they ran to her. Now that’s true leadership right there. 
 

Onto the prelim. 
CARNADEEGRRRRLS!!! 😍❤️💙

That Bannon run started right in front of where we were sitting, she vanished into the night like speedy [censored] Gonzales, it was INSANE

Is it just me or is Alyssa Bannan kind of the 'supreme footballer body' for women in the way that they talked about Anthony Koutoufides as being the prototype of the modern footballer body in the men's game twenty years ago?

Touch wood she doesn't start coming apart at the seams the way he did, though!

… and ended up where we were sitting! That was nuts!!! Banno’s a machine.

What an awesome match that was! (Let’s just pretend the first quarter never happened 🙃) Absolutely scintillating. They’ve got some solid, big-bodied players but were no match for our slick skills. Some of those pinpoint passes were (chef’s kiss).

PS Chelsea who?

Apparently she’s sporting quite the shiner. Diddums. Hashtag think twice before you bully our girls.

And now a nice break for our players and… look out every one else. We’re bringing it! ❤️💙

GO THE MIGHTY DEES!!!

Should’ve been Hore’s free kick and not Randall’s. Hopefully nothing silly from the MRP on that 

If that is looked at, you go all the way to the High Court. Randell recklessly dove at the ball and took the legs of her opponent. If an AFL standard umpire was out there, the free would have been paid the other way. Completely took her legs out. The female umpire this evening had a mare. Missed very obvious free kicks, including a blatant kicking in danger.

So happy for Edo!!! Her sister and her partner were with us out on the field pre-game. The DA gave her partner Eden’s giant head to keep and she was stoked. The support the girls get from family and friends is phenomenal. And that’s here as well as interstate. Pity all Clubs aren’t so invested. So proud of our girls 💕

Excellent win by the team. Watched it on the TV up here in Qld in between some of the T20. Only issue I have is if we get to the GF and play the Lions and give them 3 goals start the game is over. Must play 4 quarters in the Prelim then the GF and if this happens we have another flag.

Us all right now:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Fgtl1j4aMAE0UiR?format=jpg&name=medium

Gutsy win after a glacial start. They were running wild by the end. Crowd was pumped!

Main thoughts:

- How was Mithen still standing at the end of that game and, in fact, chatting without a care in the world with fans on the boundary, Thought she was a goner early!

- Bannan. Some of the most breathtaking (and heart-in-mouth!) footy you'll see. At the point now where the crowd eggs her on, although that step around the mark was just next level. When she controls that last disposal on the run more often, look out.

- Tackling pressure after quarter time. Could name many examples here, but Kate Hore on the wing, epic. Midfield worked super hard to turn the game, all the usual suspects. Heath rapidly becoming one of those.

- Chaplin, Birch, Gillard all with some great moments as we wrestled back control. Lampard cool in a crisis. Mackin has absolutely no right to be as good as she is, months into her football career. Goldie tough as nails but with that speed, a rare combo.

- Daisy had an almost game with the footy but still so many of those little things and the leadership that's not quantifiable.

- By the last quarter, we simply outworked them, even in contests where we were severely outnumbered - never say die stuff!

- Have no idea what went on late in the last (on the other side of the field) but it seemed spicy!

GO DEES!

I thought that was a real breakout game by Mackin tonight. Goldy is one of my favourite players for pace and taking the game on but Mackin was just at another level for breaking the lines.

The game isn't as skillful as the blokes but I've really loved watching our progress over the last few years. We're as tough as nails and just going in hard and running for each other. Some fantastic passages of play tonight. Really fun to watch us strangle a good team and break the lines once we settled down after the first.

It's great we've got the week off now to rest and reset. There's a few niggling injuries in the team by the looks and that week off will really help.

We should have a fitter faster team to have a crack at the flag this year.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
