Cora Staunton got a goal for Greater Western Sydney Giants but they fell to a 54-27 loss to North Melbourne in the Women's AFL on Sunday.

It was fellow Mayo native Aileen Gilroy and her team-mates who emerged victorious, as she amassed 16 disposals, 13 kicks and three marks for North Melbourne as the hosts ran out comfortable winners over a Giants team which included Staunton and Brid Stack, who continues her return to the fold having missed the entirety of the 2021 season through injury.

On Saturday, Leitrim's Áine Tighe had continued her good start to the AFLW season as she contributed her first goal for Fremantle Dockers in their 30-point win over Richmond.

Tighe, who had missed the club's last two campaigns due to knee injuries, registered her first score for Fremantle last week when they overcame Greater Western Sydney, and this time in their 77-47 away victory at Richmond's Punt Road Oval stadium it was her first goal since moving Down Under.

It was part of an impressive performance which also saw her manage eight disposals and five marks.

Clare's Ailish Considine played her part for Adelaide Crows as they recorded a 42-9 win over a West Coast Eagles side which included Tipperary's Aisling McCarthy and Mayo's Grace Kelly.

Considine contributed seven disposals, while McCarthy was among the leading lights for the opposition with 18 - the joint most of any Eagles player on Saturday.

In Friday's action, Aishling Sheridan of Cavan had got a goal for Collingwood as she and Sarah Rowe tasted victory over Geelong Cats by a 35-24 margin.

Rachel Kearns, who had scored her first league goal last week in a defeat to Carlton, was part of the Geelong side.
