As the 2022 AFLW qualifying finals kick off on Saturday, we take a look back at the best and most memorable moments from past finals.

Despite this being the sixth season of AFLW it is just the fifth finals series as the 2020 AFLW season was not completed due to Covid.

Before the business end of the season commences at Arden Street, join us on a jaunt into the recent past to revel in the glory of some sterling highlights from some of the game's brightest stars.

Danielle Ponter's three-goal haul against Geelong in 2019 

This 2019 Preliminary final was dominated by the Adelaide Crows. One of the many contributors of the day was Danielle Ponter, who booted a career-high three goals, with her most impressive coming out of the third quarter.

Pointer's pinpoint kick on the outside of the boot running from the boundary line put the Crows 42-points up, whilst the Cats were still scoreless.

Ebony Marinoff and Chloe Scheer also kicked multiple goals and the Crows advanced to their second AFLW Grand Final.

Greta Bodey's soccer goal against Collingwood in 2021

After Collingwood hit the front with a goal off the boot of Sharni Norder, it seemed the Pies had the momentum and were going to charge into their first Grand Final.

Then, Cathy Svarc burst away from the stoppage with a kick to the top of the goal square before the quick thinking Greta Bodey was able to soccer the ball off the ground.

This score flipped the momentum of the game and steered the Lions into their third grand final in the club's history, their most important one yet.

Tayla Harris first half dominance against Fremantle in 2019 

In what was arguably the Blue's best lineup in their time in the AFLW, this win was definitely a team effort. However, there was one player who kicked things off early, none other than Tayla Harris.

The Blues' first five scores were misses until Tayla steadied the ship from a set shot. She went on to take four marks and lay four tackles, and her presence in the air was an outstanding advantage.

Goals from Breann Moody, Chloe Dalton and Darcy Vescio followed, pushing the Blues comfortably through to the grand final by a margin of 36-points.

Eloise Jones Boundary line soccer goal against Melbourne in 2021

In a contest where goals were hard to come by, Eloise Jones provided some magic at the Adelaide Oval.

A left-footed soccer goal from the boundary set the game alight and it remains one of the most prolific finals majors to this day.

The Crows went on to defeat the Dees and proceeded to the 2021 AFLW Grand Final.

Jaimee Lambert's boundary line drop punt against Brisbane in 2021

Despite not coming out on top on this night, Collingwood put in an honourable performance. None other than Jaimee Lambert provided one of the great goals in AFLW history in the opening stages of the match.

Her forward 50 tackling pressure was rewarded with a free-kick on the boundary line 25-metres out from goal. She nailed the drop punt and kicked off the prelim' in style.

The Pies went down to the Lions by just four points, narrowly missing a grand final birth.
