Bulldogs win 2020 Women’s Premiership

The conclusion of the 2020 AFL New Zealand Women’s Premiership took place at North Harbour Stadium over the weekend in front of a big supporter base.

It was the Bulldogs who took out the series after they defeated the Magpies by 26 points.

The Bulldogs were in control for most of the game as Buell Verkade and Jolyn Collins were strong early on around the middle of the ground.

Caitlin Hannah and Luzette Hermon played well up front for the Bulldogs but it was Makenna Jones who stole the show kicking 2 magnificent goals and earning herself a Best on Ground Award.

For the Magpies, Alice Roy received Best on Ground after putting in a strong performance while Maggie Land, Maia Sciarone and Elena Bryham were both notable mentions.

Bulldogs Head Coach Mick Coultard enjoyed the game and is looking forward to an even bigger and better competition in 2021.

“It was great to see everyone out there today enjoying themselves and getting stuck in. To have a competition which brings Women from around the country to participate is a great initiative by AFLNZ and can’t wait for 2021 to come around so we can further develop the Women’s game in NZ.”

Final Score:

Bulldogs – 4.5: 29

Magpies – 0.3: 3
