AFLW 2022: Fremantle Dockers fall short to AFLW powerhouses Adelaide Crows in heatbreaking prelim final loss

Fremantle’s 2022 campaign has ended in heartbreak, succumbing to minor premiers Adelaide by 14 points in a preliminary final thriller at Adelaide Oval.

Forced into a hub earlier in the season, losing 10 of their best players for a finals-shaping clash against Melbourne and going long portions of the season without key players, the Dockers had already overcome so much.

But this final hurdle, a sudden death final against the AFLW benchmark, proved fatal.

Fremantle never led and spent a large chunks of the match chasing their battle-hardened opponents, the Crows destined for a home grand final after prevailing 6.4 (40) to 4.2 (26).

Adelaide will face Melbourne at Adelaide Oval next Saturday in what could mark the final game of competition greats Erin Phillips of the Crows and Daisy Pearce of the Demons.

More to come.
