Heading into the match, both teams were undefeated at 2-0 and on paper looked like it will be a real clash of the titans contest from start to finish. But, it was anything but with the Dockers controlling the match from quarter time onwards. 

After this afternoon's performance, the Dockers are definitely the premiership favourites this season and are now the ladder leaders with a percentage of 225.5. 

Hard nut Docker Kiara Bowers was sensational finishing with 23 disposals, 15 kicks and 13 tackles (a game high).

Gemma Houghton continued her strong form of the season up forward with two goals from 12 disposals and Ashley Sharp in her first game of the season contributed two goals.

Western Bulldogs (6.6.42) v. Carlton Blues (5.6.36)
Friday, Feb 5th

Bulldog Danielle Marshall, #26, was omitted from the lineup this week. After spending a few games last year and round 1 stepping in for injured rucks, it has been a bit since she’s had the game-time to prove herself on the forward line. We hope to see her back kicking goals soon.

Round 2 AFLW Wrap Up

Australia


What a round, pride round turned out to be with fans encouraged to wear rainbow colours to celebrate a round that means so much to many.

All of the round 2 matches, apart from the Western Bulldogs and Carlton clash were blowouts.

After round 2, the Brisbane Lions, Fremantle, North Melbourne Kangaroos, Adelaide Crows, Melbourne and Collingwood all remain undefeated. 

Also, it was a round where records were broken in the QClash with the Brisbane Lions recording the highest ever score and the Gold Coast Suns, the lowest ever score in AFLW history. 

The Western Bulldogs held on to win by a goal after two final quarter goals from captain Ellie Blackburn over a resilient Carlton at the Victoria University Oval.

It was one of the most epic AFLW matches with plenty on the line for both teams.
