PHOTOS | Ella kicks her first VFLW goal

Ararat College Year 12 student Ella Wood kicked her first VFLW goal with the Western Bulldogs on Saturday, in the last home and away game of the season.

Wood said that playing with the Doggies has been an unreal experience.

“They’re such a great bunch of girls and the way they help me develop not only my skills but as an individual is so inspiring,” Wood said.

“Playing alongside some of the best AFLW girls has been a massive highlight for me, I learn so much from them.” 

She said that on Saturday she snuck into the forward line, from the wing, and kick her first goal in the Blue, Red and White.

“It was an incredible feeling, the girls got around me, the crowd was loud – it was a moment I will forever remember,” Wood said.

“We go into finals this Sunday against Richmond and I’m really hoping to get picked again. I think this will be the best opportunity for me to really showcase my skills and show them what I can do.” 

The finals fixture is expected to be revealed in the coming days.
