Cats through to finals as Pies end Lions’ season


For the second year running, Collingwood played the role of spoiler on the final day of the AFLW home and away season.

Having denied Adelaide a grand final berth last year, the Pies led almost from the outset and hung on to deny the Brisbane Lions a preliminary final berth.

The Pies’ six-point win at Victoria Park also meant Collingwood avoided the ignominy of a winless season, and provided hope of better things to come next year, especially given gun youngster Chloe Molloy will return from injury.

Former netballer Ash Brazill starred with 23 disposals Collingwood, while Sarah D’Arcy was prominent, kicking two goals and taking 11 marks.
