Railways remain a game clear atop the Goldfields Football League women’s standings after a four-goal to none first half paved the way for a 50-point win, 7.11 (53) to 0.3 (3), last Saturday against Kalgoorlie.

Under coach Cory Jones, Railways are determined to go one better in 2024 after grand final defeats in each of the past two seasons.

Both were against Kalgoorlie, who have launched their pursuit of a third consecutive flag without a long line of personnel from last year.

After leading by 32 points at half-time, Railways were held to a behind in the third term but they iced the game in the run home with 3.2.
