Women's Round 15 Recap

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 - 10:15 AM by Harrison Page

It was an intense 80 minutes at Sullivan Logistics Stadium on Saturday, but the Subiaco Women’s team weren’t able to seal the deal on Claremont, losing by a measly 3 points.

Scrappy and tight for the majority of playtime, the match was a low-scoring contest in the end. Subiaco was unable to score in the opening quarter, but cranked up the pressure for the second, keeping the ball in their half for most of the 20 minutes.

The game was defined by its constant stoppages, with Subi’s followers being given a proper workout; Tess Lyon’s 26 hitouts certainly played a part in helping Krstel Petrevski garner 26 disposals, while Lauren Bilaloski showcased her defensive capabilities with 12 tackles.


However, the game slowed down in the second half, with the third quarter being goalless for both sides, and the final term entirely scoreless until the dying moments when Petrevski kicked a last-second goal with the final kick of the match.

In the end, Subiaco was defeated by Claremont 3.3.21 to 3.6.24, a scoreline representative of the intensity of both squads.

The loss, combined with Swan Districts’s victory over West Perth, ended Subiaco’s hopes of making WAFLW Finals in 2024.

Only one more game remains in the Women’s Home & Away season; Subiaco will take on West Perth at Sullivan Logistics Stadium on Sunday.

For the Rogers, it was their last game of the Home & Away season, with a bye for the squad in the final round this weekend. While they did suffer a 46-point loss to Claremont, Subiaco’s Rogers team is guaranteed a shot at Finals this year. Stay tuned for more information on the Rogers Cup Finals fixtures.
