Round 9 of the ANZ NFNL Women’s competitions 

In Division 3 , Eltham took away the four points in an important match against VU Western Spurs, winning 3.5 (23) to 1.1 (7). With the Panthers kicking three unanswered goals and taking a 22-point lead into three-quarter time, the Spurs were faced with a tough assignment and couldn’t hunt down the visitors, despite a Rebecca Bliss goal in the final term. Anna Makela provided plenty of drive for the Panthers, while Kate Cardamone kicked two vital goals when the match was up for grabs. Ashley Gulka and Rebecca Bliss stood tall for the Spurs. Eltham next travels to Yulong Reserve to take on Bundoora
