Dockers remain unbeaten

Fremantle remain the only undefeated side in the AFL Women's competition through five rounds after defeating the Brisbane Lions by 18 points at Fremantle Oval on Sunday.

The triumph was set up by a five goals to two opening quarter from the home side, Sabreena Duffy and Ashley Sharp combining for four of those majors in an electric opening.

The Lions worked their way back in to the game in the middle two quarters thanks in main to forward Jessica Wutschner, but couldn't find a major in the last as the Dockers recorded a three goal win.

Duffy was electric throughout the contest for Fremantle, kicking four goals four behinds in an imposing performance while Sharp kicked two majors in another great showing forward of the football.

Kiara Bowers continued her stunning season with 21 disposals and 15 tackles, Hayley Miller with 16 touches and Philippa Seth and Ebony Antonio each having 15.

Emily Bates had 28 disposals in a superb showing for the Lions, Alex Anderson with 25 possessions of her own.

The result sees Brisbane drop to second in Conference A, while Fremantle remain a game clear of both Melbourne and Carlton in Conference B after 5 rounds.

The Dockers play the Western Bulldogs at the Whitten Oval next Sunday, while Brisbane returns home to host Collingwood.
