The Dockers almost matched their all-time record score of 10.7 (67) before play was brought to a halt in front of an impressive 35, 185 crowd.

The $3 entry for the match broke the mould with most AFLW games offering free entry however the money raised will be donated to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
