Norwood brought North Adelaide’s 15-game winning streak to an end with an emphatic 22-point win at The Parade to cause a boilover in Round 4 of the Statewide Super Women’s League.
Five goals without a miss proved to be more than enough for the Redlegs, who restricted last year’s undefeated reigning premier to just 1.2 (8) for the match.
Experienced Norwood ruck Leah Cutting had a significant impact on the contest with 17 disposals, six marks and nine tackles while Ella Murison slotted two goals to go with her 13 possessions for the hosts.
North co-captain Kristi Harvey and former Crow Jaimi Tabb each collected 18 disposals while Tayla Thorn was the Roosters’ sole goal kicker.
Two goals in succession from Glenelg’s leaders gave it a hard-fought six-point win against West at Hisense Stadium.
Bays captain Ellie Kellock and her deputy Chelsea Packer both kicked truly within two minutes during the final term before holding off the hosts for the remaining eight minutes.
Dual premiership Crow Dayna Cox picked up 12 disposals and five tackles in her SANFLW debut for the Tigers while skipper Kellock was brilliant in tallying 12 possessions to go with her two majors.
West sensation Lauren Young kicked her team’s three goals while also chalking up the most disposals on the ground with 17 while Zoe Venning lent valuable support with 15.
South led at every change to string together its second win in succession, defeating Sturt by 11 points at Flinders University Stadium.
After jumping out of the blocks with two goals in the first term, the Panthers could have won by a greater margin if not for inaccuracy inside 50m.
Crows-listed Hannah Munyard was an influence on the outcome for South with 20 disposals, five tackles and a goal while Czenya Cavouras racked up 17 touches, seven tackles and six clearances.
Sturt’s Georgia Swan registered 20 disposals while Round 3 Powerade Breakthrough Player Alisha Gepp followed up her effort last week with 15 possessions.
An even team performance from Woodville-West Torrens ensured it would defeat Central by nine points at Hisense Stadium.
Leading by just four points at the final change, the Eagles’ Kiana Lee sealed victory with her fourth-quarter goal as the Bulldogs were restricted to just one behind.
Eagle Jess Sedunary was a difference-maker for her side with 14 disposals and two goals while Natasha Holmes and Stephanie Walker logged the same amount of disposals.
Bulldogs captain Shelby Smith filled her stat sheet with the impressive numbers of 21 possessions, six marks, six tackles and five clearances while Katelyn Rosenzweig had 14 touches with her 1.2.
