Pearce was best on ground as the Vics scored an impressive 17.11 (113) - 2.4.(16) win on Saturday night at Etihad Stadium.

The Victoria captain had 37 touches and a goal, while rising star Jasmine Garner kicked five goals.

"We stuck it right up them!" Pearce said in her post-match speech.

Victoria coach Debbie Lee heaped praise on her troops after the mammoth win.

"We wanted to play a Victorian brand of football and I think we saw a great display of that," Lee said.

The outplayed Allies didn't score a goal after nine minutes in the second quarter and ruck Emma King was the only standout in the disappointing display.

Key defender Emma Zielke was helped off in severe pain with a ribs injury after friendly fire from Allies teammate Brianca Jackobbson in a marking contest.

Then skipper Chelsea Randall limped off, a hip injury to Kirby Bentley leaving the Allies with no fit players on the interchange bench for the entire last quarter.

The Vics blew open the contest with a dominant second quarter and the five goals to the Allies' lone major opened up what was to be an unassailable buffer.

Equally impressive as the scoreboard success was Victoria's pressure inside the forward 50 that rarely allowed the under-siege Allies to clear the dangerous area.
