GSFLW Team of the Week - Round Seven
Round Seven was a fitting way to end the regular season of the 2020 Great Southern Football League Women's competition--with the same four sides as last season set to battle it out in the final series again.
The last weekend of home and away season saw McLaren compete the perfect season with seven wins from seven matches, while Yankalilla defeated Victor Harbor 3.12 (30) to 1.2 (8) in what was the battle for the wooden spoon.
Willunga made a huge statement by defeating Strathalbyn for the first time ever in a nail-biting 1.4 (10) to 0.4 (4) clash--a win that also saw them claim second spot on the ladder. While Mt Compass also finished off their regular season in style with the biggest win of Round Seven.
Scroll down to see this round's Team of the Week, plus a small breakdown of the squad.
Captain: Demi Sharp
Vice-Captain: Sally Fuller
The two ladder leaders, McLaren and Willunga, also lead the way this week with the most named players with five apiece. Following closely behind is Mt Compass and Yankalilla who both have four players represented.
The Captain of our final Team of the Week for this season is Demi Sharp following her Best on Ground performance for Mt Compass in which she kicked four goals. The Vice-Captaincy goes to a player from the minor premiers who was named as their Best on Ground on the weekend following her two-goal performance, which is none other than Sally Fuller.
Joining both our Captain and Vice-Captain in this week's forward line is Kelly Harverty who booted five goals for the Bulldogs during their big win. Two familiar names in McLaren's Layla Rogers and Mt Compass's Olivia Bendt also find themselves in our Team of the Week again--alongside Yankalilla's Tahlia Sheehan who booted three goals during the Tigers first win of 2020.
In a very positive sign for the GSFLWs future, this week's followers and midfield is the most youngest yet, with Encounter Bay's Best on Ground, Lisa Henley, joined by exciting Tiger, Leah Bailey, and experienced SANFLW youngster, Tahlita Buethke. The followers include two very familiar names in Willunga's Ella Radbone and Strathalbyn's Emogen Johnson, as well a Victor Harbor youngster that was named as their Best on Ground, Jaimee Millard.
Following their very close win--Willunga holds half of the positions in our defence this week, with Colbie Frankland, Jodie Hunt, and Carli Perryman all calling it home. Also named down back is Strathalbyn's Jaymie Hammond, McLaren's Emma Goldsmith, and Yankalilla's Tegan Cross.
Another Tiger finds themselves on our interchange for this week, which is none other than Laura Smith. She is joined by Willunga's second Best on Ground, Katrice Turner, as well as Strathalbyn's Tessa Grant and Goolwa's Renee Moon.
The final three spots in our Round Seven Team of the Week go to McLaren's Lexie Bentley, Encounter Bay's Delia Scout Althorp, and Mt Compass's Taylah Eastwood.
