AFL Sydney Team of the Week - Round Three
Round Three of the AFL Sydney Women's competition had its fair share of one-sided victories and close finishes.
East Coast made easy work of Macquarie University, 7.10 (52) to 1.1 (7). While Southern Power's sole goal was enough to get over the Bombers, 1.3 (9) to 0.2 (2). The two ladder leaders, Manly Warringah and Sydney University, continued their unbeaten run with Sydney Uni just getting over the UTS by eight points, while the Wolves brushed aside the Magpies with a five goal win.
Round Three also saw UNSW register their first win of the 2020 season with a 8.6 (54) to 4.6 (30) win over Pennant Hills.
