Airport Toyota Women’s Weekend Outlook - May 12th, 2022

By Tara Murray

There might only be half the games this weekend in the Airport Toyota Women’s divisions, but there’s plenty of exciting games to go out and watch.

In the first of the split rounds, half the matches will be played this weekend with the rest the following week.

Possibly the biggest game of the round in the women’s competition will take place in Airport Toyota Women's Premier Division with Oak Park taking on Westmeadows.

The Kangaroos started the season on fire, before a slight drop in form as several players missed games due illness.

They will need to play better than they have in the last two weeks, if they’re to beat Westmeadows.

The Tigers are the only undefeated team in the competition. While they’re still playing well in patches, the side is doing enough each week to get the job done.

The spread for the Tigers has been the key.

The other Premier Division match this weekend, Maribyrnong Park against Keilor is just as intriguing.

The Blues will enter the game as favourites, having played some good football in recent weeks.

A key for the Blues has been the number of goal kickers they’ve had, with 13 hitting the scoreboard.

Olivia Manfre leads the way, but the Blues aren’t relying on her, as VFLW commitments mean she’s not playing for the Blues every week.

In Airport Toyota Women's Division One, the Sunbury Kangaroos will be looking to bounce back against Pascoe Vale.

The Kangaroos so far haven’t been able to match it with the top sides, but have been able to beat the lower ranked sides.

With that in mind, the Kangaroos will go in favourites against the Panthers.

For the second time this season, the Panthers had to forfeit due to not having enough numbers. Hopefully being at home the Panthers will get out on the field and put in a strong performance.

Greenvale will be hoping to keep its winning streak going against the Sunbury Lions.

The Jets continue to show why they are the team to beat, with plenty of spread of goal kickers and contributors.

Already they’ve had 15 players hit the scoreboard, led by Alisa Magri with 17 goals. They’ve also had 17 players named in the best, meaning they’re not leaving it up to one player.

The Lions have struggled to hit the scoreboard most weeks, which makes it hard to win matches.

The Lions won't give up, but it will be a tough ask.

In Airport Toyota Women's Division Two, there is just one match this week.

Tullamarine will host Westmeadows 2. So far the Demons have beaten all the second sides, while the Tigers are yet to beat a first side.

The Tigers are the best of the second sides, but are they in the same park as the Demons who are undefeated?

Look for the Demons to find the likes of Courtney Annett up forward. Kate Sellars is set to be out for the Tigers, so the likes of Shelby Best and Kylie German will be important.
