It may have been their first road trip in six months but Northern Hawks were no less capable of going the journey.
Travelling the Frankford Highway to Devon, the Hawks compiled a three-figure total with ruthless efficiency en route to their 10th win of the season.
Ruth Tuohy's unbeaten outfit scored exactly 25 points in three of the four quarters to run out 101-36 winners ahead of their season finale in Hobart next weekend - a double-header against Cripps and Karana.

Tuohy was happy with her side's efforts in the absence of goal keeper Clare McKimmie and young gun Hannah Lenthall.
"We're particularly happy with our game today - the break [last weekend] was good for the team," Tuohy said
"I think we've been able to rest and refocus and I think we were really consistent with our gameplan today, especially our defensive efforts.
"The Coote sisters [Tessa and Lydia] were strong contributors to turning over balls in the defensive first phase.
"Steph Walker and Danni Pickett combined really well for the attackers to get the ball into Ash [Mawer] who shot at 94 per cent."
Since Cavaliers' four-goal loss to their Northern rivals in the first game back from the COVID break, no side has come within 18 points of the Hawks.
Tuohy is pleased with her side's consistency but believes there's still improvement to come ahead of the first week of finals on September 26.
"Part of our game plan that we look to achieve every week is that we learn something and look to continue to build - we're sitting in a great position where we are, but we're not resting on that," Tuohy said.
"We really want to take each game that we've achieved a goal that we've set out and done better than the previous game, so we're still happy that we're in a building phase.
"We're looking into finals but we've still got a lot we want to achieve in the next two games."
Cavaliers had the bye.
