St Kilda has won back-to-back AFLW matches for the first time in club history, defeating Geelong by nine points in a scrappy contest in Moorabbin.

The Saints managed just two goals in windy conditions but that proved to be enough against the goalless Cats in the 2.6 (18) to 0.9 (9) battle.

Midfielder Tilly Lucas-Rodd was dominant for the Saints, amassing 22 disposals, 16 contested possessions, 12 clearances, 10 tackles and seven inside 50s.

“We have a really young midfield. I only started playing there like a month before the season,” Lucas-Rodd told Fox Footy.

“We’ve obviously been beaten in the last couple of games in clearances and we had a big focus on that today.”

A moment’s silence was held before the opening bounce to honour the passing of cricket icon Shane Warne, who was a passionate St Kilda supporter and played under 19s for the Saints.

St Kilda will return to Moorabbin on March 13 to take on Adelaide in its final match of the season.

Geelong will also play its last match at home, against GWS at Kardinia Park on Friday.
