It is becoming a tight battle for first spot on the Women’s football ladder.

Central’s strong win over South has them comfortably in first place by a huge chunk of percentage.

But North shares the top spot after dispatching West and South now sits third one win behind with five games to go.

At the Alma, an attacking opening quarter saw Central set up a great win away from home.

Isabella Morris starred with five goals in what was a great day out for the forward.

Teagan Coombes was best on ground for the Magpies in a game where the black and white we just too good on the Alma turf.

Bree Maguire and Phoebe Knell were the top performers for the Roos and Bridgette Hurst became the only goalscorer for the home side when she found the big sticks in the last.

Shelby Raven kept up her good form and continued to rove around the stoppages while Georgia Treloar and Amy Richards also became busy in the 35-point win over the Magpies.

Over at the Jube, North had an easier game against West as they got home by 75 points.

Shannon Oates and Tarnee Tester were good performers for the Bulldogs, but ultimately the whole blue and white was working well together.

For West, Marlene Hunter was superb and so was Gaylee Honson. 

Jess Ray was as consistent as ever and Aislinn Stellini also showed some good form but the Robins could not get on the scoreboard.

North’s third win in a row has them hot on Central’s tail and sets up an interesting fixture against the Magpies this weekend at the Memorial Oval.

South will look to bounce back when they face West.
