Bendigo duo win NTFL flag

ULTILITY player Angela Foley has led the Waratah football team to its third straight premiership flag in the Northern Territory Football League women's division.

Foley, 25, was awarded the Brenda Williams Medal for her best-on-ground performance in the season decider against the Buffaloes last Saturday.

The PE teacher, who is now based in Darwin, was playing in her first season for the powerhouse Tahs alongside fellow former Bendigonian Bree Martin.

The pair were part of Bendigo Thunder's premiership team in 2012 before moving north in early 2013.

The Waratahs led at every change in the grand final, before running out 19-point winners 6.7-43 to 3.6-24.

But the game was much tighter than the final score implied and for much of the match it looked like the Buffaloes might cause a huge upset.

Three goals in the first four minutes of the final term to the 'Tahs put paid to that idea and the burst broke Buffalo hearts.

The premiers were the stand-out team of the women's competition, regularly kicking scores in excess of 100 points and demolishing their opposition.

They lost just one game for the season - to the Buffaloes by 23 points in round nine.

Their grand final opponent finished third with 12 wins, five losses and a washout, but smashed second-placed Palmerston in the preliminary final.
