THE 2022 AFLW season kicked off in Frankston on Friday night with a big win for Richmond.
Played under lights at Skybus Stadium, Richmond were trailing by a point at quarter-time.
They then put the foot to the floor, denying St Kilda momentum and keeping them goalless in the second and third quarters.
Richmond racked up nine consecutive goals in a clinical performance, walking away 38-point winners.
Richmond’s dual code athlete, Monique Conti, starred with 29 disposals, nine clearances and 17 contested possessions.
The talented Conti also plays for the Southside Flyers in the Women’s National Basketball League.
