great battle with Waikerie's Hannah Lehmann.
Trailing by nine goals at half time,
Waikerie made some changes to try and
reduce the margin, but North adjusted well and
stopped any chance of a comeback.
Waikerie stemmed the flow of North goals
in the third quarter, but North unleashed in the
final term, piling on 20 goals to 11 to wrap up
