The Dingoes bit back after a shock loss to St Kilda City in Round 6, running over third-placed Parkmore / Springvale by 41 points at Springvale Reserve.
Trailing by 44 points at the main break (0.2 to 7.4), the home side struggled against a defensive Dingley – who only let Parkmore / Springvale’s first goal slip through in the third term.
It was Dingley’s early workload which secured them the win here- as a gallant second half effort from an unsuspecting Parkmore / Springvale saw them outscore their visitors (4.7 to 3.10).
An earlier awakening of Parkmore / Springvale may have painted a different picture in this match, but the formidable form of Alex Windhager, Stefan Lamble and Remmi Faulkner-Wood (five goals) allowed the Dingoes to take the points comfortably, despite a last-minute fright.
