2012 WAWFL Presentation Night

Special congratulations should be reserved for Lauren Stammers winner of the WAWFL League Fairest and Best – the Dhara Kerr Award, an achievement the equivalent of winning the WAFL Sandover Medal.
State Schoolgirls bring home silver
WA got away to a great start and was leading until part way through the second quarter before Victoria hit back, eventually winning by 14 points in an extremely tight and physical game.
State Schoolgirls start with a win
The girls started the match well, kicking 5.5 (35) to nothing in the opening quarter. WA looked to be on its game with team structures working well and strong endeavour.
The South Australians came out a lot harder in the second quarter, restricting WA to two goals for the quarter. WA continued to work hard in the last half, winning the contested ball, but just not being able to kick as straight as they would have liked, kicking 1.6 in the 3rd quarter.
