The Northern Hawks continued to roll in the North-West on Saturday, downing Devon 73-39.
The Hawks eased into the third road-game in a row against their coastal counterparts, getting off to a 16-12 lead at quarter time.
From then on, North's turnover and transition game heated up, with the help of centre Jamie Symons and Lydia Coote extended the lead to 17 points at half.
Hawks captain Danni Pickett said a defensive effort headlined by Gemma Poke and Tessa Coote also helped the side's suffocating play.
"I think our defenders were working relentlessly throughout the entire game so for us as attackers it was about being patient with the ball, and that we made sure we were putting the scoreboard pressure on them as well," she said.
"Then making sure we were actually scoring off our own centre passes was incredibly important for us as well.
"I think she [Poke] was really good and is improving more and more.
"She's coming back from an ankle injury as well so to see her getting back to her best netball and to see her confident in that circle adds to our confidence in her as well."
Devon were able to put the pressure back on in the third, despite continued pressure from Symons and Kendall Jones at centre.
In traditional Hawks style, the side shone in the fourth quarter on attack, with the side's defence allowing Pickett and shooter Ashlea Mawer to cruise to the 34-point win.
"We're really happy with how the game went," Pickett said.
"Obviously, with a 34-point win you've always got to be happy with in the state competition but credit to Devon they pushed us the entire game."
The Hawks will head into a bye next week.
The Cavaliers had a bye this round, and will face Devon next round.
