Fremantle finished their season on a high with an 11-point win over Carlton in a physical affair on Saturday.
Despite both teams being out of the Grand Final hunt, neither wanted to finish last and little separated the teams at Fremantle Oval until Freo kicked three goals in the opening eight minutes of the last quarter to secure the 9.5 (59) to 6.12 (48) victory.
Fremantle's Gabby O'Sullivan and Carlton's Shae Audley were taken out of the contest with concussion.
Fremantle also lost ruck Alicia Janz with a knee injury.
Just before three-quarter time a clash between three women summed up the approach of both teams.
Fremantle's Hayley Miller ran back in the path of a charging Tayla Harris. Harris' knee collected Miller right in the ribs, with Fremantle defender Tayla Bresland also caught up in the act.
Despite the heavy three-way collision, all three players returned in the final quarter.
Fremantle had its third win for the season and showed some encouraging signs with the retiring Amy Lavell celebrating her final AFLW game with two goals.
Dana Hooker starred with 25 possessions for the Dockers as they set the win up with goals to Ashley Sharp, Ebony Antonio and Hooker to start the last quarter.
