Crows down the Dogs in the second round of the AFLW.

The Adelaide Crows are already looking like premiership favourites just two weeks into the inaugural AFL Women’s season after their second win on Friday night.

The South Australians thumped the Western Bulldogs at Footscray’s Whitten Oval in front of 7669 fans, to finish up with seven goals and a 25-point lead over the home side.

The final score was 7.6.48 to 2.11.23, but there were a number of stand out players on the field for both teams.

The 23-year-old originally missed out on the draft, despite kicking 52 goals in the 2016 Victorian Women's Football League season, and is already proving herself an indispensable asset for her side.

Meanwhile, her team mate Ebony Marinoff earned a Rising Star nomination for her performance last night, with 17 disposals and seven tackles.

Midfielder Emma Kearney had an impressive 23 disposals and scored a goal for the Bulldogs, but unfortunately the locals were outdone and fans were denied the chance to belt out "Daughters of the West" for the first time.

"The big thing about us is that while we respect every opposition we play, we always make it about us. Our training, pre-match, in the change rooms, we're always talking about what we can do and what we can do better as a team," Crows coach Bec Goddard told the AFC.com.au.

"It was a team effort. There was not one person on the team that didn't contribute to that game tonight, regardless of the statistics."

Next Sunday the Crows will host Carlton at Adelaide's Thebarton Oval, while the Western Bulldogs will meet Melbourne at Whitten Oval on Saturday night.

The full fixture can be found on the AFL website.
