Watson's season by the numbers

Liz Watson review MV
1 year ago

With the season over it’s time to look back on the year that was for our Vixens, starting with co-captain Liz Watson.

Returning from navicular surgery, Lizzy didn’t skip a beat posting some incredible numbers throughout the season. She was a driving force through the midcourt, hitting circle edge with great conviction and accuracy, and her calming influence in attack and transitional work was instrumental in setting our season up.

Liz collected an impressive 340 goal assists throughout the home and away season making her second in the league, while her workrate at the centre pass couldn’t be questioned racking up 270 receives to sit fifth. Liz’s endurance and flexibility shone through along with her ability to rotate between centre and wing attack, which helped to lead our charge to the Grand Final.

She was in remarkable form all year, recording a staggering 11 games with over 40 circle feeds, a feat no one else in the competition was able to reach. The co-captain was on song from Round 1 with an impressive 16 feeds in the third term alone.

Liz also took out the inaugural Edith Hull Medal in Round 6 against the Adelaide Thunderbirds, delivering 45 feeds and two pick-ups. The silverware didn’t stop there as she and the Vixens reclaimed the Sargeant-McKinnis Cup.

Although there was no shortage of star games, Liz had arguably one of her best performances in the preliminary final against GIANTS collecting 37 feeds, one intercept and 18 centre pass receives.
