St Kilda don't have a great record on the road, but they took an important step towards restoring balance to
that record when the Saints took out a 32-point win over Adelaide on Friday night.
The first half was goal for goal, with the momentum of the game fluctuating; but the Saints got on top early
in the third quarter to extend their lead to 21 points. But the Crows kept fighting back, cutting the margin to
just 5 points at the last change; and early in the last term Kurt Tippett tackled Zac Dawson to earn a free
kick in the face of goal to cut the margin to one point.
But the Saints stepped up a gear, and the Crows were unable to keep up. A good goal on the run to Adam
Scheider extended the Saints' margin, and moments later a mark 45 metres out was converted by Justin
Koschitzke to restore the St Kilda lead. There was to be no way back, as the Saints would run through 5
goals to 1 for the quarter to blow the margin out. Justin Koschitzke was also in good form with the boot,
kicking 4 goals ahead of Nick Dal Santo.

Geelong got the win that was widely predicted when they took on Richmond at Skilled Stadium, but not
before they suffered a scare as the Tigers threatened to cause a major boilover.
Everything looked to be going to script when the Cats led by 31 points at half time. But the third quarter
saw Richmond regroup and come back with a new determination and a new drive to cut the margin. The
Tigers were to run in 8 goals to 3 in the quarter, the last coming from a free kick to Tom Hislop moments
before the siren that put Richmond in front at the last change.
The  Cats fans looked on in stunned disbelief as their lead had disappeared, with the Tigers appearing
full of run and the prospect of a major upset was in the air. But the break was to end Richmond's
momentum, as the Cats steadied in the last term. Steven Johnson scored 3 of his goals in the last
quarter, enough for the Cats to regain the lead and take out a hard-fought 20-point win.

Collingwood didn't have things their own way early in their clash with Melbourne, with the struggling
Demons holding a 13-point lead at quarter time, but the Magpies gradually asserted themselves and
kicked away in the second half to take out a 53-point win.
Ticking into time on in the second quarter, Melbourne were leading by 12 points; but suddenly the
Magpies sparked into action. A double by Alan Didak levelled the scores; and from the centre break Paul
Medhurst marked and goaled to put the Magpies in front. And when Collingwood kicked the first 3 goals
of the second half, the momentum had swung their way and there was to be no way back into the
contest for the Demons. The Magpies went on to kick 9 goals to 3 for the half to blow the margin out to
53 points and give some indications their fortunes may be on the improve after their shock first-up loss
and sluggish start in this match.

Carlton looked to have their match against Brisbane wrapped up when an 8 goals to 1 second quarter
gave the Blues a 41-point lead at the long break. But the Blues would have to hold firm against a spirited
Brisbane comeback during the second half that, during the final term, saw the margin reduced to just 12
points.
It was goal for goal in the opening term, but Carlton's second quarter burst would ultimately prove
decisive. Bryce Gibbs, Chris Judd and Marc Murphy had the better of the midfield all day; while Brendan
Fevola was proving a handy target up forward on his way to 5 goals.
But after the long break, Brisbane came fighting back. Daniel Bradshaw had limited opportunities but
landed 6 goals, while Luke Power and young gun draftee Daniel Rich were also in good form. The
margin had been cut to 18 by the last change, and the Lions kept coming with early goals in the last
quarter to twice reduce the margin to 12 points. But the Blues had the answers, holding on grimly and
with some all-important last quarter goals to Fevola did enough to fall over the line.
Carlton                              3.2        11.5        13.8        18.11 (119)

The inspired Sydney of recent seasons returned to ANZ Stadium, as the Swans took control after half
time to shock reigning premiers Hawthorn by 38 points.
Hawthorn got off to a flying start when Mark Williams goaled twice in the opening 4 minutes of the match,
and were to hold the lead throughout the first half. But whenever the Hawks looked like establishing a
healthy lead the Swans would keep coming back; with Adam Goodes looking in dangerous touch. And
after half-time is was one-way traffic as the Swans took control. Craig Bolton did a great job in keeping
Buddy Franklin quiet, as did Lewis Roberts-Thompson on Jarryd Roughead. Darren Jolly was dominant
in the ruck while Goodes and Barry Hall both kicked 4. In the end the Swans would take a thoroughly
deserved 38-point win, a result that sees the defending champions still looking for their first win in 2009.

Essendon and Fremantle were both beaten in their opening round games, so both were keen to kick
start their season when they clashed at Docklands in the early Sunday game. And it was the Bombers
who got off to the better start, and went on to take the points with a 38-point win.
Apart from Dustin Fletcher, who did a great job on Matthew Pavlich, it wasn't the experienced hands who
did the damage for the Bombers. Matthew Lloyd failed to trouble the scorers, while Scott Lucas only
scored one goal; and neither had any significant effect on the result. Instead it was the youngsters who
stepped up, with Jason Winderlich, Heath Hocking and David Zaharakis enhancing their reputations
with some scintillating football. The Bombers spread the goalscoring around, with 12 of them getting on
the board; Adam McPhee being top scorer with 3. It was a disappointing day for Fremantle, who never
looked in the contest and put up minimal resistance.
Essendon                         5.2        9.5        14.7        16.13 (109)

The Western Bulldogs overcame some early inaccuracy, and held on for dear life against a fast-finishing
Kangaroos lineup to record a hard-fought 15 point win and maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
It was Emergency Services Appreciation Day, with tributes paid to those who worked so hard during the
recent Victorian bushfires. Video messages were played on the scoreboard before the game and during
the breaks, while the teams gathered in the centre for the national anthem and a rendition of "I Am
Australian" before the game.
Once the match started, it was the Bulldogs who came out in better form. They led at every change, and
should have led by more but for some inaccuracy and some poor finishing in front of goal, which kept
the Kangaroos in the contest. Late in the third term the Bulldogs had got to a 28-point lead; but North
came storming back, and as the clock ticked into time-on the margin was cut to just 2 points. But in a
thrilling finish, the Bulldogs steadied, late goals to Josh Hill and Lindsay Gilbee sealing the result.

West Coast in these early rounds are making a statement that they won't be the pushovers that many
were predicting them to be this season. After giving Brisbane a fright at the Gabba in the opening round,
the Eagles took on Port Adelaide in their first home game; and with a comprehensive 50-point win made
the first step towards rebuilding the fortress at Subiaco.
From Ashley Hansen's goal in the opening minute, the Eagles held the ascendancy. Extending their
lead in every quarter, the Power were denied any opportunity to build momentum or to work their way
back into the contest. Instead it was a midfield led magnificently by Daniel Kerr and Adam Selwood who
were the dominant forces in the game, as well as big Dean Cox who dominated the ruck. Kerr kicked 4
and Mark LeCras 3 for the Eagles, while Daniel Motlop kicked 4 in a lone hand up forward for Port.
West Coast                    4.3        10.6        16.8        19.11 (125)
