Julia Crockett-Grills worked hard despite her side going down to Fremantle on the weekend.

Blue Jayde Van Dyk was the only one of five VFLW Hawks premiership players who played in a win over the weekend in the AFLW.

Carlton recorded its second consecutive win as the club rose to the top of the Conference B ladder.

Van Dyk herself gathered 11 disposals and two marks in another solid outing for the defender.

Geelong pair Phoebe McWilliams (10 disposals, three marks and two tackles) and Julia Crockett-Grills (10 disposals, one mark and one tackle) were serviceable, despite the Cats being no match for Fremantle.

The Cats went down to the Dockers by 36 points and will now be forced to secure their spot in the finals in the last week of the home and away season.

GWS are now out of the race for finals action.

Giants star Rebecca Beeson (10 disposals and three tackles) had one of her quieter performances of a stellar season in the 32-point loss to Adelaide while Pepa Randall (seven disposals, three marks and two tackles) worked hard.
