Royals completed a clean sweep of the three regular rounds of the inaugural Great Southern Women’s Football League competition after defeating Railways by 45 points at Collingwood Park last Friday night.

The Lions secured top spot with their third straight win of the season, as Tess Brinsden finished with four goals to help her side run out comfortable victors, 7.10 (52) to 1.1 (7).

Abby Duncan won plenty of the ball in the middle of the ground and was joined in the Lions best by Brinsden, Patricia Hoveler and Claire Marte-lotta.

For the Tigers, Logan Robertson and Tamika Arundel both tried hard to go with strong support from Tiara Delli-Benedetti and their sole goal came from Jasmin Abrahams.
