FORWARD Lizzie Dowling is the lone Geelong Falcon selected in the NAB League Girls Team of the Year, despite being the club finishing in a semi-final.

Dowling kicked 14.12 and averaged a tick under 17 disposals in nine gamaes to earn a spot on the bench.

Ruck Keeley Hardingham can consider herself unlucky not to have been in the final 24.

In the best-and-fairest count, won by Dandenong Stingrays’ midfielder Amber Clarke on 20 votes, Sara Howley was the best performed Falcon.

She polled eight votes to finish in a tie for sixth.

The Falcons best-and-fairest will be announced at a presentation night next month.

Meanwhile, the Falcons Boys continue their season on Thursday night with a clash against the GWV Rebels in the Ballarat suburb of Wendouree.
