In torrential rain GWS Giants ran out 45-25 winners over St Kilda for a result that is only their third victory of the season.

It was Staunton and her forward colleague Rebecca Privitelli who played crucial roles in scoring three goals apiece for GWS Giants.

Their team scored four goals in the opening quarter alone to lay the foundations for their eventual success while Staunton would score the only goal of the final quarter as GWS Giants maintained their hopes of reaching the finals.

They are now ranked ninth after this win with two rounds to go in the regular season.
