Fantastic goal from half back with two contested marks, then a dink over the back for a Butler-esque goal. Watching with volume down so don't have the player names. Unfortunately Cats have got one straight back. 15-10 our way.

That's the half time score. I'm heading out now. Worth a look if you can - I reckon the standard of this game is similar to season 1 of the AFLW. There's been impressive improvement across the code in recent years.

Their best shots have been a complete breakdown from the centre square ruck, that really needs addressing. Once is fine, but thrice, not so much, game opened up a little that quarter.

Still 3.3 to 1.4 and 11 point lead at the half, they've given it a fair shake and game is theirs if they keep up this tempo.

We have some nice ball movement, and our work around the packs is good. Hopefully we don't run out of steam because we're looking good here!

Disgusting quarter. 2 goals to nada.

Cats take the lead by a point, we lost all structure just trying not to break.
When we finally got the ball past halfway and there was literally no Saints there to receive I realised how much harder we were having to work to stay even this quarter.

Playing in concrete and going to the boundary line, not a good sign. Still there if we use whatever energy is left wisely. Just the 3 AFLW Saints out there I think.

Yeah, Cats always had the inside but we had outside and options. That quarter was more, they took both and we went "whelp. We're flooding" as a response. Which was not great.

The kicking to the boundary worries me too. Looks like we’re afraid to take the game on. No chance of scoring if we just chip it around

Whelp, that's me done. AFL feed decided to die in the arse with 4 mins left in the match, well done you monkeys.

Assuming the Cats will hold / have held, was great for at least half a footy match though. Well done girls.

Stream died.

Full time 40-33

A few costly mistakes in defence. Apart from that we put up a really good fight.

Would Bohanna get drafted?
