How did a huge Centennial weekend get kick-started? With our TSLW team repeating their thrilling 2018 grand final win over Clarence, sparked by back-to-back third-quarter bombs from Elise Barwick.

The first came after some slick hands by Jasmine Tate Turvey and Katie Stanford, Barwick finishing the job from 40 metres with a lightning release under pressure that never looked like missing.

A minute later, after a quality centre break by 50-gamer Genn Sullivan, it was again Stanford who fed Barwick and the teenager roosted another towering six-pointer, sailing across the line at post height from 35 metres out.

At that point it appeared the Magpies were ready to roll over the Roos, having turned a five-point quarter-time deficit into a 19-point lead midway through the third, and when Mackie Sutcliffe drilled a well-struck drop punt moments later the contest appeared done.

Williams brilliance
But as she had all night, Clarence star Jessie Williams (5 goals) proved a thorn in the Pies’ side, her stunning, running across-the-body goal from distance triggering a Roos avalanche.

When the siren sounded for three-quarter-time, the visitors had slotted four goals in a tick over five minutes to square the game away with 18 minutes to play.

Three of those majors came from Williams’ boot, including one of the goals of the season where she brilliantly dribbled the Sherrin like a basketball crossover to avoid the approaching defender, then snapped truly on her left boot seconds before the siren.

'Pies take chocolates from entertaing clash

Glenorchy District Women's AFL and Clarence Roos Women's AFL traded blows in a see-sawing Friday night Wrest Point Hobart TSLW clash at KGV. Catch all of the goals from an entertaining game of football, where the reigning premiers again showed their class.

Magpies respond
It was the challenge of a champion, but the Glenorchy girls were never going to let the Centennial Game slip, dominating contested ball in the final term to never give the Roos a sniff.

Stanford capped the best night of her short TSLW career with the first goal after the break, then Tate Turvey showed all her class to slot a 40-metre set shot from a tough angle to put the game beyond reach.

Barwick, Tate Turvey and Nat Daniels all finished with two majors and were major contributors as the Pies kicked the highest score by any team against Clarence since 2016.

Stanford was named best on ground, well supported by Masa Corrie in defence, Bri Barwick in the middle and 100-gamer Sarah Davis, who became a Life Member on a very special night for the club.

The Magpies now sit a clear second on the TSLW ladder, and following the Queen’s Birthday weekend will face first-placed Launceston at KGV on Sunday 16 June at 12.30pm. Be there!

Glenorchy 9.6.60 d Clarence 7.2.44

Goals:
E Barwick 2, Daniels 2, Tate Turvey 2, Lynch, Stanford, Sutcliffe
Best: Stanford, Corrie, Tate Turvey, E Barwick, B Barwick, Davis
