The Western Bulldogs have registered an emphatic 73-point win over Carlton on Friday night on the back of a career night from small forward Brooke Lochland

A week after losing spearhead Katie Brennan to injury, the 158cm former ice-skater booted seven goals from just eleven kicks and setting a new AFLW record in the process.

The Dogs slammed on five goals in the second quarter, putting the game out of reach of the Blues early, the final score of 12.14.86 another AFLW record.

Midfield duo Emma Kearney (25 disposals) and Ellie Blackburn (19 disposals) were again influential all over the ground while Bonnie Toogood (three goals) provided Lochland with able support in front of goal.

The Dogs pressure was manic from the first bounce, regularly hunting in packs of two and three, with Libby Birch leading the way, holding Carlton star Darcy Vescio to just three touches, and Angelica Gogos laying ten tackles.

The Dogs travel to Ted Summerton Recreational Reserve  next Sunday, March 3 against to face Collingwood.
