Carlton matched it with Geelong in the first half of their match at Telstra Dome, and the Cats led by just 13
points at the long break. But the premiership quarter was a different story, and it was one-way traffic as the
Cats ran through 6 unanswered goals to put the game out of Carlton's reach. Steve Johnson was
magnificent, booting 5 goals in a best on ground performance. The Cats were also well served by 4 goals
from Matthew Stokes, and from their dominant midfielders Ablett and Corey. For Carlton, Chris Judd was
again among their best and Brendon Fevola scored 3; but this was a disappointing loss for the Blues that
sees them at risk of losing contact with the top 8 after better form in recent weeks.

Saturday night at the Gabba, and it was the twin towers of Jonathan Brown and Daniel Bradshaw that stole
the show and kept North Melbourne out of the contest. A 7-goal burst in the second quarter opened up a
40 point lead at the long break, and although the Kangaroos tried their hardest to peg back the deficit in
the second half they were only able to make up 9 points. Bradshaw and Brown each finished with 6, while
midfielders Simon Black and Luke Power also picked up plenty of possessions to set up the spearheads
and keep the scoreboard ticking over. For the Kangaroos, experienced hands Adam Simpson and Brent
Harvey were among their best.

Sydney raced out of the blocks against a lamentable Richmond at the SCG, racing through 13 goals
before the Tigers managed their first shortly before half-time. While Richmond looked pedestrian, the
Swans were sensational, with big guns Goodes, Kirk and O'Keefe among their best and 12 Swans got
their names into the goalscorers list. Richmond were out of the contest already by the long break, but in
the second half the Swans took their foot off the pedal and Richmond salvaged a small degree of pride by
winning the second half. But the final margin of 82 points was a fair reflection of the one-sided contest, a
result that keeps the Swans in 5th place just half a game outside the double-chance zone.

St Kilda kept themselves within striking distance of the top 8 and kept Melbourne anchored to bottom spot
when the Saints demolished the Demons by 79 points. It wasn't a game that reached any great heights,
with Melbourne managing just 3 goals in the first 3 quarters and by then the Saints had put the game well
and truly out of Melbourne's reach. Adam Schneider, playing his best game for the Saints since crossing to
the club during the off-season, was a focal point up forward with 5 goals; while Fisher, Gram and Reiwoldt
were among the Saints' best. On another day the Demons would love to forget, Adem Yze with 3 goals was
their only effective forward.
St Kilda                        5.4        10.6        12.12        19.15 (129)
Melbourne                  2.2          3.4            3.6             7.8 (50)

Port Adelaide kept their finais hopes burning strong while keeping the Dockers stuck in equal last spot
when the Power travelled to Subiaco and returned home with a 28-point victory. In a game dominated by a
strong wind, Fremantle kicked with it in the first term but their 18-point lead at the first change was easily
swept away by Port within minutes of the start of the second term. The Dockers again struggled in the third
term, and although they hit the front the lead was only 2 points at the last break; a lead that within a minute
of the start of the final term had disappeared. Daniel Motlop scored 5 for the Power in a best on ground
performance.
Port Adelaide                2.1        8.3        10.5        16.7 (103)

After insipid performances in recent weeks, few gave Essendon a hope of being even remotely competitive when
they travelled to Adelaide to take on the high-flying Crows. But, displaying a resolve that was so noticably absent in
recent weeks, the Bombers took the fight right up to Adelaide, and with a bit of luck may have even stolen the
game. They were helped by some wasteful finishing in front of goals by Adelaide, particularly in the third quarter
when the Crows scored 3.9. But in the end, the Crows took out the match by 5 points to maintain their spot in the
top 4
Adelaide                        1.6        4.7        7.16        9.20 (74)

Hawthorn suffered their first defeat for 2008 when the Western Bulldogs won every quarter to overpower the
Hawks by 32 points in Tasmania. A capacity crowd of over 19,000, the vast majority supporting Hawthorn, looked
on as the Bulldogs were first to the ball all day, proving themselves more than worthy of competing with Geelong
and Hawthorn in what is already looking like a 3-way fight for this year's title. Scott Welsh scored 4 for the Bulldogs
while Jason Akermanis was best on ground. For Hawthorn, a 5-goal bag by Buddy Franklin kept them in the
contest but they were never able to launch enough momentum to make any form of inroads into the Bulldogs' lead.
Western Bulldogs                3.2        8.8        12.11        15.16 (106)
Hawthorn                               2.2        5.2           9.2             12.2 (74)

West Coast's fall from grace continued, as did Collingwood's purple patch, when the Magpies thrashed the
hapless Eagles by 100 points at the MCG. Already 32 points ahead at the long break, the Magpies ran away with
15 goals to 3 in the second half, scoring at will against the outclassed West Coast defence. An injury to Daniel
Kerr further exacerbated the Eagle nightmare. Paul Medhurst scored 5 up forward and 13 Magpies got their name
on the goal-scorers list, while Dane Swan and Leon Davis were among their best. For the badly beaten Eagles,
Quentin Lynch scored 3.
Collingwood                          5.5        12.8        19.10        27.11 (173)
West Coast                           1.4          7.6           8.8           10.13 (73)
