Lake was particularly dominant, booting three goals in the first term as she set about kicking a big haul.

The All-Stars stemmed the flow in the second term, but were unable to kick a goal by half-time.

It was a dominant start for the South West in the third term, but a series of behinds hindered their opportunity to grow the lead.

Still they began to increase the lead further, with Lake leading the way in attack while Larissa Versaci and Grieve dominated the clearances.

Goals to Grieve and Versaci late in the third term made sure they got reward for effort and went into the final break leading by 68 points.

Unfortunately though for the South West, small forward Montana Tate went off with a shoulder injury in the third term, ending her game prematurely.

There were few highlights in the final term, as both teams began to show the wears of the game.

Bethany Bond soccered her second goal in spectacular fashion, while Lauren Patane kicked a nice running goal to continue the South West’s stranglehold on the game.
