PORT ADELAIDE ruck Olivia Levicki put in a sterling shift for Central District as she completed her SANFLW commitments for the season.

Levicki was among a group of the Power’s AFLW players released to play in the SANFLW competition for the opening five rounds.

At the weekend, reigning premier Central District survived a bit of a scare at Prospect Oval against a fast-finishing North Adelaide side with Levicki playing a starring role.

The visitors led comfortably until the Roosters hit the front in the last quarter before two late goals sealed the win.

Levicki was immense in the ruck for the Bulldogs, recording a game-high 27 hit-outs and four clearances as well as 18 disposals.

She also booted a goal and took six marks, only to be outdone in the marking department by teammate Julia Teakle, who had seven marks and three tackles to go with her 13 disposals, though she failed to add to her five goals for the season so far.

Bottom placed North was well served by Katelyn Pope who had 17 touches and two tackles. Amelie Borg had six disposals and a tackle for the Roosters.

Piper Window did her best to inspire Glenelg against South Adelaide with 23 disposals, 10 tackles and three clearances but after going goalless for the entire match, the Tigers were well beaten by 22 points.

Ella Boag battled hard for the Tigers with her 16 touches, three tackles and two clearances.

Sachi Syme continued her strong early season form with 16 disposals and five clearances in Norwood’s big win over Sturt at Thebarton Oval.

The Redlegs beat the Double Blues by 38 points, with Syme also chipping in with six tackles.

Molly Brooksby had nine disposals for the victorious side.

At Woodville Oval, Shineah Goody was again among her side’s best as Woodville-West Torrens overran West Adelaide. The Eagles booted five unanswered goals in the second half to win by 41 points, their biggest ever winning margin.

Goody got the ball rolling with the first goal of the match and finished with 18 disposals and five tackles.

Goody’s Port Adelaide AFLW teammate Lauren Young finished the match on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury in the first quarter, in an extra dampener for the Bloods.

It has since been confirmed Young ruptured the Anterior Cruciate Ligament in her left knee and will miss the entire AFLW season.

Port Adelaide’s AFLW players are due to return to Alberton officially in early June for the start of their AFLW pre-season.
