The ladder-leaders booted seven goals to a solitary behind after the final break to end any hopes the visitors had, the loss pushing Districts to sixth on the TIV Division 1 ladder.
The 65-point win continues Caroline Springs’ incredible defensive form, as they’ve yet to concede more than 50 points in any game this season.
They face Sunshine in Round 7 looking for a seventh win while Werribee Districts will aim to get its season back on track against Yarraville-Seddon.

The Kangaroos played their first game since the surprise resignation of Heath Scotland but were unable to trouble the home side after quarter time.
The 22.24. (156) to 11.5. (71) win puts Spotswood a game outside of the top four and pushes Sunshine to second last.
