The Singleton Roosterettes remain second on the AFL Black Diamond Women’s Shield table after claiming a 42-point win over the Wallsend-West Newcastle Swans on Saturday.
The Swans held a 13-point lead in the opening term before the visitors responded with eight unanswered goals.
“It was great to come away with a win against Wallsend who are always a tough team to play against,” Singleton Roosterette Zara Boyce explained.
“We are really staring to gel as a team, with our skills and fitness improving each week.
“Not only are our regular star players in form, but a number of the new girls are proving tough for the competition.”
Deputy captain Kyah McBride now leads the league’s goal-kicking table after she added three majors.
She was joined on the goal-sheet by Boyce who registered her first goal; a feat 54 games in the making.
“All I can say about the goal is that I was in the right place at the right time,” Boyce concluded.
“I managed to get a mark on the edge of the goal square and it was straight through after that.”
The Roosterettes will now have a bye this weekend before taking on Terrigal-Avoca and The Entrance Bateau Bay (both games at home).
