It has been a tough fortnight for Lake Wendouree, which has come up against the top teams in AFL Goldfields Women’s Competition.

While this time it was the undefeated East Point to secure victory over Lake Wendouree at Eastern Oval on Sunday, the match did not come without a battle.

The Dragons came out firing in the first quarter with four majors to take a 26-point buffer into the first break.

But Lake Wendouree managed to gain control in the second and third quarters to hold the opposition goalless.

But a final assault from East Point came in the fourth term, kicking five goals and seven points to just the one behind to end the game 69-3. 

Meanwhile, Redan continued its red-hot run with an impressive 151-victory over Darley at City Oval on Sunday in what was a top versus bottom-of-the-ladder clash. 

The Lions’ Carly Twaits roared with five majors to be listed among the best players, while Georgie Hassell booted three goals.
