The Redbacks continued their onslaught, adding another six goals, while containing the Rams to only nine points for the quarter.

The third quarter did not feature many goals, with Romsey’s run slowed slightly, kicking three goals, while the Rams were contained to one goal.

But the Redbacks were unrelenting in the final quarter, snagging another six goals to give them a dominant victory over a struggling Rams’ side, who managed just four goals for the match.

Alongside Jedwab’s impressive eight for Romsey, bringing him to 20 goals for the season and sitting comfortably at the top of the scoring ladder, Gavin Cathie, Samuel Wilson, Liam Muir, Benjamin Way, and Nathan Hoy had two goals apiece.

Unfortunately, the Romsey Redback senior women’s side couldn’t achieve the same success as their men’s side, maintaining their streak of only scoring one point per game for the season.

Romsey scored their sole point in the first quarter as the Macedon side ran over the top of them, 68 points to one.
