Round 7 Women’s A-Grade Wrap

Posted by:

ON the back of standout scoring performances from Zoe Arancini and Dayna O’Leary, it was Applecross and Triton coming away with strong Round 7 victories in the Women’s A-Grade competition on Saturday.

Stunning weather greeted the teams for the Round 7 action on Saturday and it ended up seeing Triton record an 11-4 victory against UWA City Beach at HBF Stadium on the back of six goals from Dayna O’Leary.

After the game, O’Leary was happy with Triton’s performance but they never went into it underestimating UWA.

“Although we have beaten them in the past we never can go into a game underestimating City Beach,” O’Leary said.

“They are a young team, but have some really talented girls in the water. I just think at the end of the day we (Triton) played really well and started out strong, scoring a few goals to get ahead in the first quarter and they just couldn’t come back from that.”

The other Women’s contest for the round took place at Bicton Pool and that featured a battle of the Melville teams with Applecross remaining undefeated scoring the 11-7 victory against the Marlins with Zoe Arancini again starring with six goals.

The Round 7 results mean that Applecross remains out on top of the standings in the Women’s A-Grade competition with a perfect 7-0 record.

But things are really tightening up in the race for second position with the Melville Marlins now holding a 4-3 record while Triton improved themselves to 3-4.

UWA City Beach remains winless after seven matches so far this season.

There continues to be plenty of standout individual performers in the Women’s A-Grade competition and from a scoring sense, it’s Zoe Arancini from Applecross leading the way with 29 goals from the seven rounds to date.

Dayna O’Leary from Triton has scored 20 goals so far as well to be ahead of Luci Marsh (Melville Marlins) 16, Glencora McGhie (Applecross) 15, Madeleine Quinn (Marlins) 14, Jess Zimmerman (Applecross) 14, Rebecca Liddle (UWA City Beach) 12 and Kelly Parks (Applecross) 10.

Round 7 got underway at HBF Stadium with UWA City Beach searching for its first win of the season up against Triton.

Triton was able to get off to a flying start with the only three goals of the first quarter courtesy of two from Dayna O’Leary and another from Cathryn Earl.

O’Leary then scored two more to start the second quarter and then Tia Nelson added another to make it 6-0. UWA did score before half-time, though, thanks to Madi Rigo.

It was then a goal apiece in the third quarter before three quick fourth quarter goals for Triton from O’Leary, Annika Hart and Ellie Pead before they went on to win 11-4.

Dayna O’Leary finished with six goals for Triton and Tia Nelson two while Rebecca Gibb scored twice for UWA.

Dayna O’Leary received the three votes, Cathryn Earl two and Rebecca Gibb one.

Then at Bicton Pool, it was an entertaining affair between the two Melville teams as the race heats up to find roles in the Fremantle Marlins line-up for the Australian Water Polo League season set to commence early in 2021.

It was Applecross who came away on top in the finish with the 11-7 victory with Zoe Arancini scoring six goals and Glencora McGhie two. Madeleine Quinn hit three goals for the Marlins and Luci Marsh two.

Round 8 in the Women’s A-Grade competition takes place this Saturday afternoon with Triton facing Applecross at HBF Stadium at 1.15pm. Then at Bicton Pool, the Melville Marlins play UWA City Beach from 3.45pm.
