Another six goals to three effectively ended the contest at three-quarter time.
Tim Barrett finished with five goals and Damien Bonney 4 for the Students, who were led by Lewis Stevenson (24 disposals and five inside 50s) and Tom Young (29 disposals, eight clearances, eight inside 50s and two goals).
Nicholas Heyne (28 disposals, four inside 50s and a goal) was one of Ainslie’s top contributors alongside Damien Bowles (two goals) up forward and Simon Curtis (26 disposals and nine marks).
The Students jumped into fourth place after NT Thunder’s loss to Aspley, and will host the Territorians in a blockbuster clash at Henson Park this week.
Ainslie will fight to keep its place inside the top six when they tackle ladder leaders UWS Giants in Canberra.
