Essendon had a red-hot go in the first half of their match against Hawthorn, only trailing the ladder leaders
by 7 points at half time; and had they been able to convert some easy chances in the first term may have
even been in front. And when Angus Monfries banged a goal through in the opening minute of the third
term, the margin was down to 1 point. But, as ladder leaders are known to do, the Hawks stepped up the
pressure and raced away through the second half to record a 51-point win. Buddy Franklin was again in
awesome touch with 9 goals, a force the Bombers were unable to stop as they slumped to their 8th
straight defeat.

Fremantle's season of frustration continued when they went down to Brisbane by 22 points at the Gabba
on Sunday. In the previous 5 matches the Dockers had led at three-quarter time before being beaten; and
although they were behind at the last change they won 3 out of 4 quarters. But it was the second quarter
that let them down, with the Lions running through 6 goals to 1 to establish the match-winning break. In a
sometimes spiteful match in which three players were reported, Brownlow medallist Simon Black was in
his most brilliant form to give the Lions enough of the football to maintain their advantage and ensure they
remain in the top 8.

Some wasteful finishing in front of goals during the first quarter was to prove costly for St Kilda, who had
an opportunity to build a big lead and press to enter the top 8 against the third-placed Bulldogs but
squandered their chances. The Saints did build a 12-point lead during the first term, but within 5 minutes
of the start of the second quarter the lead had been erased and from there the Bulldogs were in control
and on their way to a 27-point victory. Jason Akermanis was the star, with a 6-goal haul, while Brian Lake
and Daniel Giansiracusa were also prominent.

Travelling to AAMI Stadium, a ground they have struggled at in recent years, having managed only 3 goals
to 3-quarter time in wet conditions and 5 goals behind; no-one gave Carlton any chance of beating Port
Adelaide. But somehow the Blues managed to find something extra when it was most needed. With Chris
Judd in the midfield providing the drive and Matthew Kreuzer proving to be a handy target up forward with 3
last-quarter goals, the Blues kept the Power goal-less in the last term and hit the front deep in time-on.
Brendon Fevola put the icing on the cake with a goal after the siren, and the Blues had come from
nowhere to record an unlikely win and keep their finals dream still very much alive.
Carlton                              1.4        2.9        3.12        10.15 (75)

Melbourne, struggling on and off the field and racked by internal strife, put their woes behind them to put
up a creditable performance against Collingwood in the traditional Queens Birthday clash at the MCG.
Collingwood won the game, their 7-goal burst in the third term putting the game out of Melbourne's reach;
but it was a much-improved performance by the Demons compared to recent capitulations. But the
Magpies were better able to take advantage of their opportunities, and with 13 players getting on the
scoring list had too many attacking options for the Demons to counter.
Collingwood                 3.2        8.5        15.8        17.14 (116)

The long weekend commenced with a high-scoring and entertaining contest where North Melbourne refused to
give in even after Geelong got out to an early lead. Hanging in there and refusing to lie down, the gap was reduced
to just 8 points at the long break and was still only 12 points at three quarter time. Had Daniel Harris and Drew
Petrie been able to capitalise on some early opportunities in the last quarter the Kangaroos may have been able
to increase the pressure on the Cats even more; but instead the Cats were able to steady and turn off the flow of
scoring in the last quarter to complete a 13-point win and retain a share of the competition lead.
Geelong                         7.0        11.6        17.7        19.13 (127)

After Adelaide scored the first 2 goals under overcast skies at the MCG, Richmond made a breakaway with a
6-goal burst; and maintained a lead throughout the remainder of the first half. But after the break the Crows made
their move. The switch of Scott Thompson up forward gave them a focal point; while youngster Luke Jericho, was
only picked in the side after Brett Burton withdraw at Thursday training, turned the game on its head with 5
second-half goals and a spectacular high mark in the last term. The floodgates opened in the second half, 15
goals to 5 turning a 14-point deficit at half time into a 50-point win.

Another West Coast v Sydney match, another epic. The clubs have had a record in recent years of thrilling
contests, including the 2005 and 2006 grand finals; and this one would also go down to the wire. It didn't look that
way early, when the Eagles kicked 6 unanswered goals in the first term to send hopes among the locals soaring
of an upset to turn their flagging season's fortunes around. But the Swans slowly but surely worked their way back
into the contest, not hitting the front until Jude Bolton scored the winning goal with just one minute left on the clock.
Continuing a worrying trend for the Swans who were still missing Barry Hall through his long suspension, Adam
Goodes was reported for a late shot on Adam Selwood.
