Brisbane climbed over Collingwood for the second straight week to get to the top of the AFLW ladder.
After the Magpies suffered their first loss of the season last week, the Lions took their first coat off again with a 15-point win over North Melbourne on Saturday. </ Brisbane is tied to Collingwood by 28 competition points, but is 218.5-217 points ahead in percentage terms.
Fremantle is one win back but could take a win on Sunday thanks to its best percentage of 231.9 in the league ahead of Melbourne.
On Saturday the Lions took care of business in the Gabba and won their fourth game in a row for the first time since the first AFLW season.
The Lions and Kangaroos parted ways a goalless two By just four points at halftime in the first quarter, Brisbane beat North with three to score in the second half, although some very good opportunities were missed.
Lions tagger Cathy Svarc added Jasmin Garner to her hit list for 2021 and limited the influential midfielder from the north to just four departures in the first half. Courtney Hodder’s bold snap in the fourth quarter secured the win.
That came hours after Collingwood scored an out-of-control 46-point AFLW win over St. Kilda, with an 8.11 (59) to 2 Bounced back, 1 (13) win at Victoria Park, battling for first place on the ladder.
Not only did the Pies score their highest score and biggest profit margin, co-captain and key-on baller Bri Davey returned with them 23 possessions back in top form.
Davey, Britt Bonnici (29 departures) and Jaimee Lambert (21) controlled the midfield battles, Chloe Molloy (two goals) and Aleisha Newman (three) finished efficiently and Stacey Livingstone led a well-organized defense on.
But they were all overshadowed by a brilliant rendering of Ruby Schleicher (23 possessions) on half the back.
Schleicher added tough tackles to her five timely interceptors and ran off the backline to defend regularly in to convert an attack.
Another brilliant feat by Onball leader Alyce Parker kept Greater Western Sydney hopes of reaching the AFLW final with a battle win over Geelong on Saturday.
Parker had an impressive 25 possessions , since the left foot was rarely out of the race in the 2.4 (16) Giants until the 1.3 (9) victory of the Cats in a tough fight in Kardinia Park.
She was hit by Alicia Eva with 18 strokes , Elle Bennetts (18) and Rebecca Beeson (15) were well supported when the Giants stood up to an ongoing challenge from a Geelong team eager to break their first win of the season.
The Giants, who are now 4-4 and Still in touch with the top 6 leaders would have won far more without the strong defense of Cats defenders Maddy McMahon, Meg McDonald and Madeline Keryk.
