In other results Emily Gardner kicked two goals as Point Cook lead from start to finish in their 42-point win over North Sunshine.
To the VAFA where Kasie Nugent and Sally Seabrook put in strong performances for Westbourne, as they walked away with a 50-point win over Whitefriars OC to move them two points out of the top four.
