Kyneton, Macedon and Woodend-Hesket were the winners in last weekend’s round of Riddell League women’s football.

After a massive day at Kyneton Showgrounds raising funds for Fight MND, the Kyneton team played Mt Alexander Falcons, with both sides having significant ‘outs’.

The Tigers kicked three goals straight early and repelled opposition forward thrusts.

Bridie Kinghorn was effective in the ruck and also kicked a goal, and ball magnet Suzie Harrison finished with three as the Tigers won by 59 points.

The usual suspects in Ainslie, Hateley and Savoia all starred, and Kyneton now looks forward to playing Macedon in two weeks’ time. Jessie Boylan, Trish Ross-Harris and Rachael Winterton were prominent for the Falcons.

After an even first half Macedon took control to defeat Melton 9.8 to 2.5.

Charlotte Noonan kicked six goals to extend her lead in the goalkicking, and Eliza Bell managed two.

Scarlett Lynch, Noonan, Bell and Lulu Slater were best for the Cats.

In the remaining match, Woodend-Hesket overcame Lancefield in the second half to win 4.11 to 2.1.

Kat Bau, Mariam Habib and Harmony Cassar were the Hawks’ best, while Chloe Hodgson, Molly Heales and Sienna Green did well for the Tigers.
