A tough couple of weeks has continued for Westmeadows, which has suffered two straight losses in Essendon District Football League Women’s premier division.

Facing two of the top three sides in Burnside Heights and Keilor, the Tigers haven’t been able to come away with the points.

On Saturday against Keilor, the Tigers were kept goalless for three quarters.

The Tigers kicked the only goal of the first quarter, but added just two points for the rest of the game, losing 7.7 (49)-1.2 (8).

The Tigers slip to fifth spot with a 3-3 record.

They will be hoping to get back on the winners’ list this week, facing bottom-side Pascoe Vale.
