Clayton have had a convincing win to end South Yarra’s season, as they look to face competition leaders Frankston next week.
They were on the front foot straight away, kicking three goals in the first quarter, and not letting South Yarra get a taste. A huge second half, was more than enough to really put them away.
Catrina Mastroianni, Stephanie Sandoval and Kelsey Tomkins kicked two goals each for Clayton.
