A record-breaking, 10-game winning streak has been set by the Swan District’s women’s WAFL team after snatching a one-point win against league champions Peel Thunder on the weekend.
The feat, which cemented Swan Districts as the team to beat, puts the squad at the top of the table and 12-points clear of the competition.
The squad needs a single win in the next four games to secure the minor premiership title for the first time in the club’s new league history.
Swan District’s team captain Emily Mcguire says the team know that 10 straight wins are a huge achievement, but that they were not getting ahead of themselves before they go up against a tough Subiaco side on Sunday May 23.
The excellent performance of the woman’s Swan District squad is a change from a disappointing mid range finish in 2020, when the season was cut short by the first COVID19 outbreak after just seven rounds.
Swan Districts football club head Jo Taylor believes the change this season comes from a “perfect storm” of senior players mentoring young talent and a complete pathway from Auskick leagues to the WAFLW league.
Swan District’s centre forward Chanel Jetta believes the club’s performance is helped by new coach Adam Dance.
Dance is a former Carlton AFLW coach and Jetta says the players are: “Loving the new vibe and skill set and games plans he has brought to the swans”.
Dance says he is “extremely” happy with the performance of the WAFLW side but is adamant that the team stay grounded and “play one game at a time” for the the remainder of the season.
