Wickliffe-Lake Bolac were unable to match Glenthompson-Dunkeld in its round 12 match, losing by 24 goals at Lake Bolac on Saturday.

Simone McDonald started strongly for the Pies at goal shooter, as she worked hard outside the circle to help bring the ball into the Pies attack. McDonald worked herself to the post and created space in the circle and scored accurately.

A close first quarter had the Rams in front 16-14.

The passes into the circle from Pies centre Amanda McClelland were fantastic.

She was creative and accurate with her entries into McDonald and Emily Worpel, giving her goalies a reasonable opportunity to gain possession and score.

It was an even second term, with both sides shooting 10 goals each.

Neither team was able to capitalise as well as they would have liked in the circle.

It left the Rams with a 26-24 lead at the main break.

It was a dominant third quarter for the Rams, as they were able to create a 14 goal lead heading into the last huddle.

Reegan Brunt was consistent in defence for Glenthompson Dunkeld.

She was tight on her opponent and had them working hard for their possessions.

Brunt was able to cause turnovers with her quick reading of the play and push the ball out of defence and down the court.

The Rams continued to push in the last quarter, finishing with a 65-41 goal win.

McDonald finished the game with 30 goals to share the best on court honours with McLelland for the home team.
