Women's Round 13 Recap

Wednesday, May 29, 2024 - 10:08 AM by Harrison Page

It’s three in a row for the Women’s team, following a 43-point win over Peel Thunder at Lane Group Stadium on Saturday.

Scoring was once again a team effort, with Subi’s 9 goals being kicked by 7 unique kickers.

Hayley Corlett was instrumental in the 43-point victory. After having a week off due to a minor injury sustained in Round 11, Hayley played a career-best match with 22 disposals, 7 inside 50s and booting 3 goals.

“I had done nothing different from the normal routine,” Hayley said of the game. “I just went in with a mindset of wanting to do the most for the team like I always do.”



Hayley was quick to shine the spotlight on the rest of the squad though. “Meg Brown killed it with her contest pressure, which shows in her stats with 13 tackles! You always know with Meg that she'll give it her all.”

Coach Baker Dennemen shared the sentiment. “The pressure [Meg] created around the ball allowed the game to open up and allowed us some uncontested footy.”

Krystal Petrevski and Leila Rowe were also vital components of Subiaco’s success in Mandurah, accumulating 18 and 15 disposals each and creating a strong link between the midfield and forward line.

“The connection between our mids and forwards is something we are always looking to continually improve,” Baker explains.

“We had some really good passages that led to rewards, found an ability to get the ball moving quickly, and let the forwards go to work 1 on 1 with their opponents. We are finding a balance of good entry points, and nice depth on those entries, which gives us the best possibility to create opportunities from them.”

“Overall, we’re always happy to come away with a win on the road. Leads us into an exciting three weeks, and we are up for the challenges ahead.”

The Subiaco Women’s three week stretch to the end of the season begins with South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval this Saturday.

The Rogers didn’t share in the celebrations, losing to Perth at Mineral Resources Park by 36 points.
