An ice cool set-shot in the dying stages from Richmond AFLW player Steph Williams sealed a six-point win for Port Melbourne VFLW over Williamstown in Round 3 at DSV Stadium on Friday.

The Borough fell behind at quarter-time after the Seagulls kicked two goals in the space of four minutes late in the opening term, but the visitors had a four-point lead at the last change thanks to Chanelle Slater rolling home the only major in the middle two quarters midway through the second.

Sarah Cameron’s goal gave Williamstown the lead eight minutes into the last but the Borough added two behinds to level things up before Williams eased home the winner from 40m out with 73 seconds left on the clock.

The Seagulls had 61 more disposals than the Borough couldn’t make it count as the visitors stuck an amazing 121 tackles in 80 minutes of footy (Williamstown still had 85 of its own).

Lauren Caruso (17), AFLW Tiger Stella Reid (14) and Jessie Williams (13) were amazing in that category for Port Melbourne with 44 tackles between them, with Caruso also having 17 disposals and five clearances in a brilliant display across half back.

Isobel Hartog (15 disposals, five tackles, five clearances) and Kaitlyn O’Keefe (14, seven tackles, five clearances) were also good, while Williams kicked 1.2 and was better than her 10 touches suggests.

Bridie Kennedy (18 disposals , eight tackles) worked hard for the Seagulls, with Maddie Edwards (17 disposals, nine tackles) and Sharnie Whiting (16 disposals) also impressive and Eliza Straford (six tackles, one goal) dangerous in attack.

Debutant Natasha Phipps (20 hitouts) held her own against Beth Wilson (25) and Kate Dudley (19).
