I know ppl would expect another run at the GF after last year, but a lot has changed since then.
Agree.

Also having 4-5 changes to the team each week, makes it difficult to get teamwork and game style in place.

Great tough win at Preston oval for the Pies.

Final game of the season underway at Vic Park.

Pies playing the top of the ladder Williamstown.

Almost half time and Williamstown lead Pies by 14 points.
Willy has 2 goals, Pies yet to score.

This was always going to be a tough game.
Hopefully the Pies can get things gin in the 2nd half - although they have done well to restrict Willy to 2 goals in the half.

Season ending loose at Vic park for the Pies in a real hard long slog.
Was stoppage central and on a few goals scored.
Was a horrible match and no real flow at all.
Ball kept getting locked in.
Pies 7 to Willy 17 in a hard slog.
Conditions was ok but thr ground was wet as very dewy and heavy.
Seasons done rest up and go again.
Reload for the AFLW.
I was at the Luilie street tavern bar with some of the girls from the Pies they said they had a hard season but battled through it.
They said that Collingwood are going through some restrutureing from last seasons grand final lose and a case of going back to go forward again.
Alot of new players as well and mostly young ones.
But so far enjoying their time at the Pies having fun making friends which is the key.
Alot of new changes in the side and a case of a foundation times for them and on wards and up wards.
Some are even like to step into the aflw side of things.
Last word from their captain was watch this space some exciting times are coming up and a case of everyone having fun and enjoying their footy.
Well done girls.
Rest up and re load is what i told them.

A loss aginast the top of the ladder Williamstown finished the VFLW season for the Pies.

Pies finished 7th on the ladder just outside the top 6 and finals.

Considering the wholesale changes to the team in the off season, the girls did well. Some good wins, a couple of disapointing losses and some poor games. A bit of a mix this season.

With at least 3-4 changes to the lineup each week, they struggled with consistency but were able to give some U18 draft prospects game time.
