There was an exciting weekend of round three games in the AFLW.
Cora Staunton is joint third in the Golden Boot race after she scored a late goal for GWS Giants who were defeated by North Melbourne Kangaroos 54-27.
Mayo’s Aileen Gilroy played a key role for the victors with 16 disposals during the game.
Collingwood secured their third win of the competition with a hard-fought 11-point win over the Geelong Cats at GMBHA Stadium on Friday.
Mayo teammates Sarah Rowe and Rachel Kearns did clash in a crunching tackle late in the first half causing a dislocated finger to Rowe, but Collingwood did finish out the game in fine style with 13 disposals.
A dominant 33 point win for the Adelaide Crows over the West Coast Eagles on Saturday sent the 2019 Premiers to the top of the AFL Women’s ladder after Round three.
Grace Kelly featured for the Eagles but her sister Niamh had to pull out late before the start of the game due to a groin complaint.
On Sunday Sport we will be featuring an interview with one of the Mayo players each week from our man down under Padraic McGrath.
Padraic begins his series by speaking to Grace Kelly of the West Coast Eagles.
