In a 2020 grand final rematch, it was the Hawks who emerged victorious on Saturday 69-48 at St Helens.
Both teams came out of the gates firing on all cylinders, with both squads' state-calibre talents keeping the game close.
Strong goal-keeping from Hawk Isabella Maskell helped her side to a three-point lead at quarter time.
Cavs turnovers early in the second allowed the Hawks to capitalise and stay on top of their region rivals, allowing the 2020 champions to extend their lead to 33-26 at the half.
Errors continued to plague the Cavaliers in the second half, and the Hawks took advantage en route to a 21-point win.
"We're very happy with the performance - it was such a team win," Hawks captain Danni Pickett said.
"At the end of the game, we were trying to give each other feedback, and honestly we couldn't single anyone out because it was such a good team performance."
Cavs captain Shelby Miller said her team held firm in the opening term of the game, but errors and poor decision-making put the team in a hole they couldn't get out of.
"The poor decision-making rattled us ... we didn't play our best game," she said.
The one game that matters is the grand final and we'll meet them there- Shelby Miller
However, Miller said the team wasn't fazed, with plenty more chances for her team to down the ladder-leading Hawks, including the finals.
"The one game that matters is the grand final and we'll meet them there," she said.
