Angela Foley faces a one-match suspension going into in this weekend's AFLW action.

Shepparton export Angela Foley will not be seen in this weekend’s AFLW action after being reported during Adelaide’s match against Melbourne.

In Saturday’s game at Casey Fields, Foley was charged with kneeing the Demons’ marquee player Daisy Pearce.

AFL match review officer Michael Christian deemed the offence as intentional and with medium impact, passing on a one-match suspension.

Foley can either accept the penalty or risk another week should she choose to appeal.

The star defender is a certainty to miss her side’s clash with the Western Bulldogs, as Adelaide’s away match to Greater Western Sydney is also at stake.

With the incident occurring in the final quarter Foley remained one of her side’s best for the day, again picking up disposals in the double figures during the 32-point loss.

There was plenty of drama to welcome Reni Hicks to her first AFLW appearance with Carlton.

The Nathalia product was on debut against Greater Western Sydney when play was stopped for 20 minutes due to lightning.

In a low scoring match, Hicks enjoyed the 21-point victory while her teammate starred.

Former Euroa coach Sarah Hosking is having an outstanding season, racking up a 16 tackles.

Hosking’s twin Jess also tore up the oval with 14 possessions as the siblings continue to star for the Blues.

Lauren Tesoriero was unable to gather a win in her first match for Collingwood this season.

The former Mansfield coach produced a solid showing, gaining 11 possessions, but was unable to help her side over the line.

The Pies went down to Fremantle by 13 points, leaving Collingwood searching for its first win of the year.

Another Eagles player, Bonnie Toogood, put in a strong performance as her Western Bulldogs group prevailed over Brisbane.
