Double honour for Darcy

Highlights | Vescio's bag of 9 Carlton's Darcy Vescio put on a masterclass against Essendon's VFLW team, kicking an incredible nine goals in a virtuoso performance.

Carlton’s star forward Darcy Vescio has claimed two honours at the 2018 VFL Women’s Awards at Crown Palladium on Monday evening.

As the league’s leading goalkicker, Vescio received the Rohenna Young Medal, while also being named at full forward in the VFLW Team of the Year.

Booting 26 majors in nine matches, the 25-year-old kicked a goal in every game she played, including two bags of four against Geelong in Round 4 and Williamstown in Round 11.

Entering the final round of the season one goal behind Darebin’s Hannah Mouncey, Vescio showcased her exceptional talent around the sticks, kicking a nine-goal haul against Essendon at Windy Hill.


The nine-goal bag secured her the top goal kicking honour, and no doubt caught the eye of those voting for the VFLW Team of the Year.

Carlton will hold its inaugural VFL & VFLW joint best and fairest this Friday night with the Northern Blues at the Mantra Bell City Ballroom in Preston.
