Collingwood were the only team to beat Geelong during the home & away season last year, and a bright start
by the Magpies gave them hope that they could do it again this time. But, after leading by 20 points at the first
change, the Magpies were unable to keep up with the contest as Geelong took control in the second term.
Eight unanswered goals turned the game around; giving the Cats a 27-point lead at the long break.
Collingwood tried hard to peg back the deficit during the third term, but were let down badly by some poor
kicking from set shots. Heath Shaw in particular had a shocker, with some clear-cut opportunities going
begging; and was also reported for a bump on umpire Michael Vozzo. And on the three-quarter time siren,
Josh Fraser had a chance to cut the margin to just 9 points; but his shot sailed wide. Let off the hook,
Geelong came out firing in the last term, with Steve Johnson scoring in the opening minute, before setting up
Shannon Byrnes a minute later. And when Cam Mooney marked and goaled at the 5 minute mark, the game
was safe; and the Cats would go on to take out the game by 27 points. Geelong's midfield was again
magnificent. Gary Ablett picked up 37 possessions, while Paul Chapman touched the ball 35 times and
kicked 4 goals.

St Kilda sent a message to the rest of the clubs that they mean business in 2009 when the Saints
comprehensively demolished West Coast by 97 points at Docklands. The second quarter saw the game
blown out of the water when the Saints raced through 10 goals to 2 to lead by 63 points at half time; and after
an even third term the Saints added another 5 goals without reply in the last as the winning margin fell only
just short of 3 figures.
Brendon Goddard was irrepressible early, kicking 4 goals in the first quarter to get the Saints off to their flying
start. Nick Dal Santo and Leigh Montagna each racked up more than 30 possessions, while Justin
Koschitzke and Stephen Milne also contributed 4 goals. 15 St Kilda players got their names on the
goalscorers' list compared to West Coast's 4 as the Saints ran riot, the Eagles suffering their second biggest
losing margin ever.

On a wet night in Brisbane, the Lions had all the answers and were far too good for a disappointing
Sydney, taking out their clash by 33 points. The damage was done in the first half, with the Lions kicking
10 goals to 4 to lead by 37 points at the long break; and although the Swans won the second half they
never looked like getting back into the contest.
The Brisbane twin forwards, Jonathan Brown and Daniel Bradshaw each scored 4 for the Lions. With
Brad Dalziell, Jed Adcock and Josh Drummond racking up plenty of possession and Joel Patfull keeping
Adam Goodes quiet, the Lions controlled the play around the ground and the Swans were never able to
get their game going. Barry Hall kicked 3 for the Swans, and Darren Jolly had the better of the ruck
contests, but too few Swans were on their game for them to mount any serious challenge. It was
Brisbane's first win against Sydney since the opening round of 2004.

Carlton were favourites to defeat Essendon at the MCG on Saturday night, and after leading by 20 points at
quarter time and with Brendan Fevola kicking the first goal of the second term, everything looked to be
going to script. But the Bombers turned things around, kicking 7 of the next 9 goals, with Scott Lucas
remarkably putting Essendon in front just before half-time.
The third term was a thriller, with constant changes in momentum. Carlton early in the term looked to be
getting on top, but the Bombers kept pulling them back. A key turning point came as the clock ticked into
time-on. Matthew Lloyd marked on the 50 metre line, but as tempers became frayed a 50 metre penalty
was awarded, turning a tough shot into a certainty. A scuffle then broke out on the Bomber forward line,
and Brett Thornton brought down Alwyn Davey. A free was paid to Davey, and suddenly the Bombers were
in front. The margin was 6 points at the last change, but a desperate pressure-filled last quarter meant the
game would go down to the wire; and it would be Essendon who would take out the match by just 4 points
in what had been the best game of the season to date.

Port Adelaide returned to the winners' list in style in the early Sunday game, the Power being 57 points too
good for Melbourne at AAMI Stadium. Port took control of the game in the second quarter, kicking 7 goals
to 2 to go to a 35-point lead at half-time and leading by 61 points at the last change. Although Melbourne
salvaged some respectability in the last term, doubling their goal tally and winning the quarter, it had been
another disappointing day for Melbourne.
Particularly pleasing for Port Adelaide was the return to form of Warren Tredrea, a bag of 6 goals giving a
sign the former skipper is set to return to his best after a disappointing 2008 and opening to 2009. Danyle
Pearce and the Burgoyne brothers were also in good form for the Power. There were few highlights for
Melbourne, although Aaron Davey tried hard all day; and the Demons' 2009 campaign already looks to be
doomed to another year at the lower ends of the ladder.
Port Adelaide                     3.3        10.5        16.12        22.15 (147)

Hawthorn broke through for their first win in 2009, the defending champions being 54 points too good for
North Melbourne on Sunday afternoon at Docklands. Most of the first quarter was a tight and low-scoring
affair, but two goals in the final minute to Buddy Franklin gave the Hawks the lead and from there they
would never look back.
By half time the margin was out to 29 points, and with Hawthorn winning every quarter the Kangaroos
never looked a chance to work their way back into the contest. Sam Mitchell was in blinding form for the
Hawks, picking up a glut of possession, while Jarryd Roughead moved from the forward line to the ruck
and finished with 5 goals and plenty of the footy and Lance Franklin kicked 4. Although still not yet back in
premiership form, it was an encouraging afternoon for the Hawks, and a relief to finally get the first win of
their premiership defence.
Hawthorn                          4.1        10.4        15.5        19.9 (123)

Adelaide recorded their second victory of the season, leaving Fremantle winless, after the Crows took out
a 24-point win at Subiaco Oval on Sunday.
The Crows had led by 20 points during the third term, but the Dockers wouldn't give up; and after kicking
the first 3 goals of the final quarter the home side had the lead. But, as has too often been the case in
recent seasons, the Dockers got into a winning position but were unable to complete the job; and the
Crows were able to regain the lead and run away in the closing minutes of the game to take the winning
margin out to 4 goals in a match that for much of the day looked to be a lot closer. Jason Porplyzia kicked
4 for the Crows, while Nathan van Berlo and Tyson Edwards stood up and were counted down the ground
when the game was there to be won.
Adelaide                            1.3        6.7        9.12        15.14 (104)

Western Bulldogs maintained their unbeaten start to the 2009 season and left Richmond still looking for
their first victory when the Bulldogs took out the Easter Monday clash by 47 points.
It was a slow start for the Bulldogs, who were unable to score a goal during the opening term; but the
Tigers were unable to capitalise on their dominance around the ground, and the quarter-time lead of 16
points was never going to be enough once the Bulldogs hit their straps. By half time the Bulldogs had
taken the lead and continued to extend their advantage during the second half. The result sees the
Bulldogs join St Kilda and Geelong on the top of the table, while Richmond will be looking forward to the
Tigers' clash with Melbourne next week for a chance to open their 2009 account.
Western Bulldogs              0.6        6.11        10.13        16.14 (110)
