The Murray Bushrangers girls are off the mark in season 2021 after an impressive 47-point victory away to Gippsland Power on Saturday.
Just nine points separated the sides at the main break before a second half blitz saw the Bushrangers pile on six unanswered goals to romp to a comprehensive 7.6 (48) to 0.1 (1) win.
Olivia Cicolini led the way with three majors, while Lily Sharp, Kate Adams, Sophia McCarthy and Ally Morphett were also on target.
Bushrangers assistant coach Mario De Santa-ana was pleased with the way the side stuck to the task after a scrappy first half.

"We probably dominated the game for the four quarters, but the first half we weren't clean," he said.
"It was a messy game in the first half with lots of numbers around the ball and fumbles, but half-time we really cleaned up our hands and it opened up for us once we got some clean footy.
"Our skill level was a little bit better than the opposition and we were able to convert down forward."
Kristy Whitehead continued her stellar season across half back, Keeley Skepper was dominant in the midfield, while Giants academy prospects Zara Hamilton, India Lehman and Ally Morphett also impressed.
Three games remain for the Bushrangers with a trip to Sandringham to face Dandenong Stingrays next weekend followed by Geelong Falcons on April 11 after the Easter break.
Sandringham Dragons await in the final round on Anzac Day at Wangaratta's Norm Minns Oval.
