VETERAN Redan forward Josie Smith booted seven goals to decimate Kew on Sunday.
The Lions skipper led her team to a 114-point win on the road, and continued the club’s perfect form from the opening two rounds in the Victorian Women’s Football League division two.
Lions coach Chris Wilson said his side’s clear control on play allowed the Lions a chance to experiment with player on-field roles.
The Lions entered the match five players down from last week’s opening round win against Mordialloc, but three new players signed up during the week, which Wilson said was fantastic news and helped strengthened the team.
Smith’s huge goal haul against Kew takes her season tally to 10 goals from two games in the restructured league.
Contributing to the Lions’ 19 goals was Lauren Conroy, who booted three majors while Alisha Flynn and Jenna Conroy kicked two goals.
Versatile Lions onballer Becky Irons continued her stellar start to the season, while Lori Stepnell’s experience was valuable at centre-half back.
The Lions are only third on the ladder, despite the enormous margin against Kew.
North Geelong has set the tone by demolishing rivals.
Its latest outing was a 95-point win against La Trobe, which Redan prepares to meet next in a twilight game on Saturday.
The Lions are then scheduled to meet the formid-able North Geelong at City Oval on May 25.
It was a tougher second round for Golden Point in the VWFL combined division 3/4 competition.
The Dragons fell 68 points short of Whitehorse on the Dragons’ turf at White Flat Oval.
Maighan Fogas kicked the Dragons’ sole major in the second quarter.
The Dragons failed to get on the scoreboard in the first, third and fourth terms.
Fogas, Kaylah Smith and Brittanee Davies were named the Dragons’ best three. It was a disappointing game for the Dragons, who had chalked up a dominant league debut against South Morang last round.
The Dragons now prepare to host Bayswater, which had a one-point thriller against Melton Centrals at the weekend.
