Adelaide has secured the NAB AFLW minor premiership with a 39-point win over St Kilda.

Star pair Ebony Marinoff and Erin Phillips shone as the Crows took control after quarter-time, kicking away to post a 7.11 (53) to 2.2 (14) victory at RSEA Park on Sunday.

Sunday's win was a comfortable tune-up, with Marinoff (25 disposals) and Phillips (19) finding plenty of the ball against the Saints.

St Kilda benefited from a strong breeze at their backs in the opening term and took a three-point lead to the first break after Hannah Priest kicked the first goal of the match.

But the Crows asserted their authority in the second quarter, piling on 3.4 and holding the hosts scoreless.

The Saints also failed to score into the wind in the final term as the visitors extended the margin.

It would have been greater if not for some wayward Crows kicking in front of goal.

St Kilda battled personnel issues all season and won two games under first-year coach Nick Dal Santo. 

"Overall, our big picture is pleasing," former Saints AFL midfielder Dal Santo said.

"But when you come up against the best like we did today, we're still acutely aware of where we are right now and where we want to get to.

"There are moments that are pleasing but we need to get better."
