The game was tight and low-scoring early. Jonathan Brown kicked the opening goal of the game, but the
Lions were not to manage another until late in the third term. Both sides defended strongly, and there were
only a couple of kicks in it until midway through the third term. But from there the floodgates opened, and
the Hawks dominated to blow the margin out. 9 goals to 3 turned the game into a one-sided result, one that
keeps Hawthorn in the race for the top 2 but one which seriously endangers Brisbane's finals hopes.
Hawthorn                       1.3        3.7        7.11        16.14 (110)

It had been a traumatic week for Collingwood, with the club suspending Alan Didak and Heath Shaw for the
remainder of the season after some indiscretions; but the Magpies bounced back to defeat St Kilda by 14
points, a result that could well be critical for determining the shape of the finals series.
After an even first term, the Magpies took control in the second quarter, holding the Saints to a solitary goal
to lead by 24 points at the long break. Dane Swan was accumulating plenty of possession, while Josh
Fraser was playing his best game for the season in the ruck.
The Magpies still led by 4 goals at the last change, but a charge by the Saints caused Collingwood some
nervous moments. Milne, Fisher and Schneider kicked the first 3 goals of the quarter within the first 5
minutes of the quarter and suddenly the margin was back to 9 points. But a timely contribution on the
scoreboard from debutant Chris Dawes gave the Magpies enough of a buffer to ensure their victory and to
climb ahead of the Saints on the ladder.
Collingwood                    4.4        7.5        11.9        14.13 (97)

Until now the Round 19 matches had been one-sided affairs, but that was to change as the Sydney pipped
Fremantle at the post by just 4 points to retain their top 4 position. It was a game of fluctuating fortunes, but
the constant throughout the night was the form of Adam Goodes, who kicked 8 goals up forward while also
having a significant impact around the ground.
A 6 goals to 2 third quarter gave the Swans a 13-point lead at the last change, but the Dockers weren't
beaten yet. The Dockers kicked the first 4 goals of the quarter, the fourth being a spectacular run from the
wing by Brett Peake, which saw the visitors take a 13-point lead. The Dockers had a chance to extend that
lead, but Luke McPharlin hit the post from within scoring range, while another attempt was saved by a
spectacular mark in the last line of defence from Paul Bevan. The Swans gradually worked their way back,
with Barry Hall's 4th goal at the 29 minute mark restoring the Swans' lead; but it took some dogged
defending through a longer-than-expected last quarter to get the Swans home.

North Melbourne's strong start was the difference in their clash with the Western Bulldogs, the Kangaroos
building up enough of a buffer to withstand the challenge from a fast-finishing Bulldogs to win by 20 points.
An 11 goals to 5 first half saw the Kangaroos well placed, and when they added the first two goals of the
third term the margin was out to 50 points. But the Bulldogs fought back, cutting the margin to 24 points by
the last change; and in a frenetic last quarter the margin had been reduced to just 14 points at the 23
minute mark before the Kangaroos steadied. Campbell, Harding, Grant and Harvey all kicked 3 for the
Kangaroos, while Brad Johnson scored 5 for the Bulldogs.
It was a result that keeps the Kangaroos in the hunt for the double-chance; while the Bulldogs drop out of
the top 2 following Hawthorn's Saturday win.
Kangaroos                                6.5        11.6        15.7        21.10 (136)

Adelaide continued their late-season revival when they accounted for Richmond by 63 points at AAMI
Stadium. The damage was done in the first half, with the Crows scoring 10 goals to Richmond's 1 and
already by half-time the contest was over.
Double Norm Smith Medallist Andrew McLeod was back to his brilliant best, while Scott Stevans and
Nathan Van Berlo were also prominent for the Crows. The result sees the Crows just half a game outside
the top 4 with their double-chance hopes still very much alive; but it was a blow for Richmond, and with just
3 weeks to go before the finals, it may be one that ends their finals hopes.
Adelaide                                      3.2        10.4        15.6        16.12 (108)

West Coast's finals aspirations for 2009 died many weeks ago, but the Eagles played a role in shaping the
finals when they ended Essendon's finals campaign; restoring some pride with a close 10-point victory at
Subiaco Oval.
A career-high 7 goal haul to Ben McKinley was the difference between the two sides, as the Eagles
dominated the early stages of the match to run to a 38-point lead at the long break. The Bombers fought
back in the second half, finishing full of running. Jason Laycock's 3 goals in the last quarter ensured the
match would go down to the wire - but, as was the case in Kevin Sheedy and James Hird's last game in the
final round last season, the Eagles had enough of a buffer to ensure the Bombers determined last quarter
charge would fall just short.
West Coast                             6.3        10.6        12.9        17.11 (113)
Essendon                                3.2          4.4          9.7           16.7 (103)

Friday night football was played at an earlier time than normal in order for it to be all over before the Olympics
opening ceremony later that evening; but as it turned out the game was over long before the Olympic torch came
anywhere near the Beijing stadium.
From the start it was all one-way traffic as the Cats dominated. Joel Selwood opened the Cats' scoring with a goal
after just 4 minutes, and when Longeran scored his first a minute later, it was already looking like a mismatch.
8.5 to nothing in the opening quarter set the tone for the one-sided nature of the evening, with Melbourne not
troubling the scorers until late in the second term as Geelong increased their lead in every quarter to run out
convincing 116-point winners. Longeran and Stokes each kicked 4 for the Cats, while Mackie and Selwood were
in awesome form. Geelong looked sensational, their running game tuned to perfection; while Melbourne were
second to the ball all night, let down by poor marking, poor disposal and failure to exert any pressure on the
Geelong juggernaut.
Geelong                         8.5        12.7        19.10        24.13 (157)
Melbourne                    0.0          1.3           2.6             5.11 (41)

Carlton kept themselves in finals calculations, and did it easily, when they thrashed Port Adelaide by 66 points at
Telstra Dome. The Blues got off to a quick start, leading by 21 points at quarter time; and any hopes of Port getting
back into the contest quickly evaporated when the Blues scored 3 goals in the opening 5 minutes of the second
term.
But the Blues from then on became inaccurate. They finished with 4.9 for the quarter, and although the game was
won, the percentage-booster that would have helped their cause in a tight finals race was not as substantial as it
could have been. But the result keeps their finals hopes alive, while for Port it was another installment in a
disastrous season that the Power will be looking forward to it being over.
Carlton                           4.7        8.16        12.22        18.24 (132)
Port Adelaide               1.4          2.5            5.8            9.12 (66)

A full house was on hand in Tasmania as Hawthorn marked Shane Crawford's 300th game in style with a
comfortable 69-point win over Brisbane. Crawford kicked a goal and was among Hawthorn's best.
