The Castlemaine Magpie Women’s and Under 18s teams played their first home matches in the AFL Central Vic competition at Camp Reserve on Sunday.

The Pride Round consisted of many highs and lows for the U18 Girls and Senior Women’s sides.

With 12 on the field, the U18 Girls had their work cut out for them against a very physical opponent in Woorinen and went down by three goals.

Expectation preceded the Senior Women’s match as Woorinen and Castlemaine met on field for the first time since the 2023 grand final. The Tigers brought their best but they were no match for the Magpies.
