The Eastern Allies have gone down to Western Australia by 30 points in this afternoon’s NAB AFLW Under-18 National Championships clash at Broadbeach. 

The Eastern Allies were kept goalless in the opening half before majors from Burnie’s Chloe Haines and NSW’s Brea Quinlavan kept the Eastern Allies in the contest heading into the final term. 

Western Australia were far too strong in the end, however, kicking three unanswered goals to run out 7.3 (45) to 2.3 (15) winners. 

Mia King was a standout for the Eastern Allies with 17 disposals, the equal second highest tally on the field, while Chloe and Libby Haines and Lauren Stevenson continued their impressive Championships. 

The Eastern Allies now have one win and one loss in the NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships and will finish the series off with a clash against Queensland at Bond University on Friday July 13th.
