Kiara Bowers' hopes of winning this year's AFLW best-and-fairest award remain alive after the Fremantle star escaped with a reprimand for a tripping offence.
Bowers tripped Brisbane's Jessica Wuetschner in the dying stages of Fremantle's upset 11-point loss to the Lions on Saturday.
The incident was not deemed serious enough to warrant a suspension, and she can accept a reprimand with an early guilty plea.
Bowers currently leads the AFLW's coaches' association award, and is one of the favourites to take out the league's best-and-fairest after finishing runner-up last year.
North Melbourne's Vivien Saad is set to miss Friday night's clash with Richmond after being offered a one-match ban for her forceful front-on contact against Carlton star Tayla Harris.
The incident was assessed as careless conduct, medium impact and high contact.
