Top Eight - GSFLW Team of the Week Performers
We are just two weeks away from the Great Southern Football League Women's Grand Final, and to celebrate, we have reflected upon our GSFLW Team of the Week series to bring you the names of the players that commonly made the side.
We have had to be very strict when it came to selecting the side because, as we only covered the last six rounds--there are several players that have appeared in the side the same amount of times. Therefore, the top six spots have been reserved to those who made all or majority of our sides, while the remaining two spots have gone to those who made exactly half of them.
Tahlita Buethke (McLaren), Leah Bailey (Yankalilla), Achol Agany (Encounter Bay), Demi Sharp (Mt Compass), Linda Shute (Mt Compass)
#8 Jaimee Millard (Victor Harbor), Sally Fuller (McLaren)
To kick off our list we look towards two players that made half of our GSFLW Team of the Weeks this year. In a sign of things to come, McLaren's Sally Fuller ended up finishing third for the 2020 GSFLW Open Women Best and Fairest.
As for Jaimee Millard, she is the youngest player to make this list--and the Victor Harbor product finished runner-up to the 2020 U16s GSFLW Best and Fairest.
#7 Taylah Eastwood (Mt Compass), Asha Bell (Goolwa)
Our seventh spot goes to another duo of players--this time its a very-familiar name from Mt Compass, Taylah Eastwood, and a very reliable performer for Goolwa, Asha Bell. Both of these talented players ended up being named in four of our six Team of the Weeks.
#6 Laura Smith (Yankalilla)
A talented tall from the Tigers--Laura Smith well represented Yankalilla in this year's league Best and Fairest as she finished fourth in the medal count. She was also well represented in our Team of the Week, as she went onto to be named in four of them.
#5 Colbie Frankland (Willunga)
A first-year Demon comes in at number five. With experience in both SAWFL and SANFLW football, Colbie Frankland fitted in seamlessly with her new club and in our Team of the Week. As a very versatile player that could go wherever she was needed, Colbie made five of our six sides this year.
#4 Layla Rogers (McLaren)
Spending the first part of the year with South Adelaide in the SANFLW, Layla Rogers was certainly welcomed back to McLaren--and her performances showed it. In total, Layla would make all except one of our Team of the Weeks, and would top off the year by finishing equal fourth in the Best and Fairest count.
#3 Katrice Turner (Willunga)
Another familiar name from Willunga comes in at our number four spot in Katrice Turner. As an extremely reliable performer for the Demons, Katrice was constantly named amongst their best players each week--a fact that helps explain how she made all expect one of our Team of the Weeks. She also ended up finishing equal sixth in this year's league Best and Fairest.
#2 Emogen Johnson (Strathalbyn)
Not only was Emogen Johnson a regular in our Team of the Weeks, but this young gun was commonly named among the leaders as well. This is very fair, considering this fast-paced and clean-skilled player ended up finishing runner-up to this year's Best and Fairest.
#1 Renee Moon (Goolwa), Ella Radbone (Willunga)
As a young gun Demon--Ella Radbone was one of only two players to make every one of our Team of the Weeks, making six of our six sides. As well as this feat, Ella would also go onto finish ninth for this year's league Best and Fairest.
Finally, the most obvious player to come in at number one is the 2020 GSFL Open Women Best and Fairest, Renee Moon. Like Ella, Renee ended up making all of our Team of the Weeks--with this perfect record of six from six being a great sign of what was to come for her.
