Tall forward Mitch Carter was at the forefront of the attack kicking three important goals for the term, while small forward Caleb Edmead kicked two.

Leading by 46-points at half time the third quarter was a much more even affair however the breeze at the Northern End of Peter Motley Oval favoured the Double Blues.

With the margin cut back to only 23 at the final change the Redlegs dug deep to kick eight goals in a row to put the result beyond doubt.
