Marshall booted five goals in the first three quarters, while his uncle Todd Mashall was named best on ground.
Sean Fisher, Brady Trotman and Ben Irwin also had a big say in the outcome, while Jack Conallin and Liam Pitts battled hard all day.
Tall target Bryce Scoullar (two goals) was the Rams’ other multiple goalkicker with three others kicking singles.
Better players for Finley were Sam Orro, Lanz De Peralta and former Deni Rovers player Che Griffin.
It was a similarly important game in the fourths, with the Rams coming out on top by 21 points.
The Lambs are in fifth spot on the ladder and are now one game clear of sixth-placed Finley.
