St Mary’s and the Southern Districts Crocs were the big winners in the NTFL Premier League last weekend, with both advancing to the second weekend of the finals series in emphatic fashion.

Sadly, the Darwin Buffaloes had their season curtailed, losing their Elimination Final. The Tiwi Bombers lost their Qualifying Final, but live again into next weekend by virtue of their double chance for finishing the home and away season in third place.

Spurred on by a four-goal haul to former Blue and Demon, Jeff Garlett, the Crocs were too good for the Buffaloes. A four goal to none opening term set the scene, with the Crocs winning each quarter on their way to a 71-point win.

Duffy was drafted to the club in 2018, with their second selection and no.17 pick overall. 

"I was pretty overwhelmed and was working for a couple of years to hopefully put my hand up to get drafted, so then I guess when I was drafted it was a bit surreal," she said.

"I had my whole family around me and it was just a dream come true, I cried a bit when my name was read out and it was just a dream come true and I was just really excited to get started."
