SFLW Team of the Week - Round Six
Round Six set the stage for three convincing wins as the Cobras, Wineflies and Falcons all registered double digit wins.
Only wayward kicking prevented Flagstaff Hill from putting their Round Six win away earlier, as the side booted 1.6 (12) during the first quarter of their clash against Hackham. While they didn't exactly kick much straighter after the first break; they certainly built a healthy buffer as they kicked 10 goals from their last 22 scoring shots to run away with the win, 11.18 (84) to 0.1 (1).
There were the usual culprits on show during Cove's 29 point win over Port Noarlunga, 6.7 (43) to 2.2 (14). Emma Fitzpatrick and Felicity Oliver were some of the standouts in the red, blue and white whereas Bridie Nye and Kaiya Iveet were once again Port Noarlunga's standouts.
Christies Beach versus Reynella, this game was our pick for the game of the round but that didn't eventuate as the Wineflies ran away to win, 12.8 (80) to 0.0 (0). There wasn't much to separate the two sides at the first break, but a five goal to none second half all but sealed Reynella's win.

Captain: Emma Sjoberg Vice-Captain: Emily Woods
The Round Six SFLW Team of the Week is one of the most well-balanced yet; with each side being represented by at least one player. The reigning premiers, Flagstaff Hill, lead the way with six named players while Reynella and Cove follow close behind with five spots each.
Flagstaff Hill's Emma Sjoberg was everywhere during the Flacons big Round Six win, and now she even finds herself as the Captain of our Team of the Week. The talented Falcon finished with two goals during a Best on Ground performance; making this an easy pick.
Reynella's Emily Woods counted for four of the Wineflies' twelve goals during their 80 point win over Christies Beach. This impressive performance in front of the sticks sees her earn the title of Vice-Captains.
The Round Six Vice-Captain, Emily Woods, kicks off this week's team. The Reynella talent claims a spot at centre half forward after booting four goals in the black and white. She is just one of three Wineflies' to join the attack this week.
The rest of the swarm include young gun, Georgia Pennifold, who finished with two majors, and their second Best on Ground, Morgan Blackwell, who added one goal to her season tally.
Port Noarlunga's Best on Ground, Kaiya Ivett, makes yet another Team of the Week performance while Cove's Felicity Oliver holds her spot at full forward after booting two majors.
Flagstaff Hill's Emily Erickson rounds out this week's attack. This dangerous Falcon fittingly finished with second best honours after booting two goals.
Cove's consistent performer, Emma Fitzpatrick, takes over rucking duties this week after narrowly edging out some of the other rucks for the starting position.
Also in the on-ball division is our Round Six Captain, Flagstaff Hill's Emma Sjoberg, who was a standout player from a standout result. This Falcon collected two majors while on her way to earning Best on Ground honours.
Rounding out the followers is Port Noarlunga young gun, Bridie Nye, who makes yet another appearance in our Team of the Week after being one of the better Porties' performers once again.
A duo of Falcons line up along the middle, with Chloe Meyers joining the side on the back of an impressive two goal performance while Isobel Dyson holds her spot on the wing after backing up last week's strong display.
The final spot in the middle belongs to the exciting Reynella prospect, Ella Besley, who joins the side after finishing amognst the Wineflies' best players.
Two Christies Beach players make up the spine of this week's back line, with Brooke O'Brien and Mia Dunn filling the centre halfback and full back positions respectively.
Cove's ever-reliable rebounding defender, Renee Ullrich, adds another Team of the Week appearance to her name, while Reynella's Best on Ground, Madi Thwaites, finds herself in the opposite pocket.
A Hackham interceptor also joins this week's defense, with Emily Hateley-Watson finishing her match with a second Best on Ground performance which even saw her earn praise by her opponents.
The final spot in the back six belongs to Flagstaff Hill's Hannah Griffin, who was one of many players whose efforts helped keep their opposing side goalless during Round Six.
Headlining this week's rotations is the fast-paced Falcon, Alana Baker, who was one of many standouts for Flagstaff Hill despite moving up higher than usual.
Hackham's Best on Ground, Hannah Crump, also makes an appearance after making her presence felt around the stoppages for the Hawks.
Young Saints ruck, Neriah Milis, also joins the rotations this week, alongside Cove's second Best on Ground, Edith Kosztovits, who rounds out the rotations for Round Six.
The final two spots in our Round Six MWM SFLW Team of the Week belong to Cove's Lara Ward and Port Noarlunga's Stephanie Rallis.
