Nothing seemed to go their way after that, however, registering just 0.3 in the third quarter while the ‘Cutters kicked three goals to cut the margin back to 18 points.
Another three behinds was all Deni could muster, but the determined Roos successfully held off the home side to win by six points, 6.15 (51) to 6.9 (45).

After jumping out of the gates with 4.7, the Rovers piled on five more goals to hold a 66-point lead at half-time.
A further three goals in the third and then five in the last saw the Roos record their 13th straight win of the season.
