Players to Watch
Penny Bakopoulos – The young defender has missed her fair share of games this season but since coming back she has been one of Richmond’s stand out performance. Playing mainly from the back her ability to get forward and add crucial goals will be much needed in Sunday’s final definitely one to watch.

Rachel Alonso – Having joined the Richmond set up late in the season Alonso has added the class factor that Richmond had been screaming for. A proper target she holds the ball up well for team mates as well as having an eye for goal she will most definitely be a handful for Pascoe.

Azize Erenli – Often flying under the radar Erenli is Richmond’s most consistent player often finding the back of the net when her team is in desperate need of goals. She will be crucial in Sunday’s final and is possibly the biggest threat to Pascoe Vale.

Chloe Drinoczkiy – Always a solid contributor to the Pascoe Vale side the last few weeks have been Drinoczkiy’s best of her V-League career. Finding the back of the net on countless crucial occasions (Including breaking the deadlock against Ashburton in the QF) Her thumping left foot will definitely be a key factor in the final.
Chloe Drinoczkiy has been in red hot form of late and one more big putting could see Pascoe Vale claim silverware.
Sarah Richardson – Last season’s top goalscorer has had a quiet season by her standards but come finals time she will definitely be a threat and she has had some success against Richmond in the past bagging 3 Goals in their 6 meetings.

Ili Jakab – Jakab has come along in leaps and bounds this season and although she suffered a small form slump late on in the season she will play a vital role in commanding the Pascoe Vale defence on Sunday.
