AFLW: Freo gallant in defeat

Fremantle were defeated by the Lions by seven-points in Brisbane on Saturday afternoon.

Fremantle were defeated by the Lions by seven-points in Brisbane on Saturday afternoon.

Brisbane defeated Fremantle by seven-points at a sodden South Pine Sports Complex on Saturday afternoon. 

With the city of Brisbane copping in excess of 200mm of rain in the past 48 hours, the match was always going to be a slog, and it turned out that way.

It was the Lions' third win from four matches and sets up a tantalising contest against premiership fancies Melbourne at Casey Fields on Friday night.

For the Freo Dockers, they will rue not capitalising on their 10 inside 50s to one during their first-quarter dominance.

Despite a strong mark and goal to Stacey Barr on the stroke of three-quarter time keeping them alive, Fremantle fought until the final siren but it was't enough for them to get over the line. 

"Brisbane played really well," Freo Dockers coach Michelle Cowan said. "I thought they took a lot of their chances and that's why they came out with the win." 

What’s next?
Fremantle is still clinging to its top-two hopes and must beat Greater Western Sydney at Fremantle Oval next Saturday afternoon (2.05pm WST) to keep their chances alive.
