Capping off an outstanding first year, Courtney Hodder has been nominated for Goal of the Year.

The livewire 21-year-old has been one of the league’s most dangerous small forwards, already collating a large highlight real in just her first season in AFLW.

Her goal of the year nomination comes after an impressive passage of play in Round 9 against Melbourne. In the second quarter, Hodder chased down a loose ball, beating two defenders before collecting the rolling ball and kicking truly from 40 metres out.

Hodder already won Round 8's Goal of the Week only 7 days prior to her efforts in Melbourne and recently added a Rising Star nomination to her already stellar season. 

Brisbane will look for her electrifying pace and goal sense in this weekends Preliminary Final v Collingwood as the intimidating Lions team look for their first Grand Final berth since 2018.

Hodder goes up against Chloe Molloy of Collingwood and Jessica Fitzgerald of the Bulldogs with voting closing Thursday 8th April 2021. To vote for Courtney’s goal, make sure to follow the link here.
