Sharks flying under radar
WITH their male counterparts receiving most of the local attention, the East Fremantle Women’s Football Club is flying under the radar – and what a season they are having.
The Sharks’ league team is undefeated in the WA Women’s Football League after 10 rounds, having handed out some massive defeats and enjoying an average winning margin of 52 points.
But with just six games left in the season, head coach Nikki Harwood said it would be business as usual until the end.
“Whilst we’re in a great position leading into finals, our current win/loss record isn’t important and we just need to be in the top 4 come finals and win the games that count,” she said.
“Nothing changes for us; we will continue to approach every game in the same way as we have been.
“Every game is a new challenge, so we just try and raise our bar each time by polishing our strengths and improving on specific focus areas.”
Sharks captain Alex Williams said their season so far had been a testament to the hard work and dedication of the playing group.
“All the hard work started with pre-season; we had a really solid few months of training to prepare for the season and it’s really showing,” she said.
The League women are not the only ones tasting success, with East Fremantle’s reserves and colts also performing strongly.
The last five times East Fremantle’s trio of WAWFL teams played on the same weekend they won all three games – something that has never before happened in the club’s history. Rd 4: Rd 5: Rd 6: Rd 7: Rd 8: Rd 9: Rd 10:
