Geelong maintained their unbeaten record so far in 2009, but the Cats were pushed all the way by a
determined Western Bulldogs side in a game that would not be over until after the final siren.
Leading from the start, the Cats went to a 37-point lead during the third quarter, and still led by 22 points at the
last change. But the Bulldogs kept fighting, cutting the margin back to 3 points as the clock ticked into time-on.
The Cats went foward, Travis Varcoe's snapped goal at the 26-minute mark looked to have wrapped up the
match for Geelong. But the Bulldogs weren't beaten yet, a reply from Liam Picken getting the margin back within
a kick. With just seconds to go, the Bulldogs again went forward, and veteran Brad Johnson marked on a tight
angle 15 out near the behind post. The siren sounded as Johnson went back, the fate of the game resting with
Johnson's kick. But agonisingly for the Bulldogs the kick went just wide, giving the Cats a narrow 2-point victory.
Steven Johnson kicked 5 goals for the Cats and Matthew Stoked 4. For the Bulldogs, Johnson and 300th gamer
Jason Akermanis both kicked 4.

North Melbourne returned to the winning list with a 13-point win over Fremantle on Saturday afternoon at
Docklands. It wasn't a match that reached any great heights, but the 4 points are worth their weight in gold for
the Kangaroos, keeping them one game out of the top 8 and in the mix in a very congested ladder.
A small crowd of only 15,000 was there, and it's likely the Kangaroos will receive a bill from the stadium
operators for the game, further intensifying the dispute between the AFL and stadium management. And on the
field it was looking bleak for the Kangaroos early as the Dockers kicked 6 goals to 2 in the opening quarter to
lead by 26 points at quarter time. Although North came back into the game in the second term, the Dockers still
held the lead at half time.
But the premiership quarter swung the balance North's way, 4 goals to 1 in the quarter turning their deficit into a
13-point lead by three-quarter time. And although the Dockers tried hard in the last quarter, the Kangaroos'
defence held firm, enabling them to take out the win. David Hale kicked 5 for the Kangaroos, while Michael
Firrito was best on ground. For the Dockers, Luke McPharlin kicked 4 while Paul Haselby was a dominant figure
in the midfield.
North Melbourne            2.3        8.8        12.11        14.14 (98)

Adelaide's defensive success against a slow-starting Carlton enabled the Crows to set up a
match-winning lead in the first half before cruising to a 44-point victory at AAMI Stadium on Saturday
afternoon.
The Adelaide backline was in stellar form throughout the first half, and the Blues were unable to manage
a goal. By then the lead was out to 49 points and already the game was looking safe for the Crows.
But suddenly in the third quarter the Blues sprung to life. A run of 5 quick goals late in the quarter saw the
lead reduced to 27 points, with the Blues having the momentum and threatening to steal the game. But
the three-quarter time break came at the wrong time for the Blues, allowing the Crows to regroup; and
when Brent Reilly snapped truly in the opening minute of the last quarter, the Carlton fightback was over.
The Crows would go on to kick 6 goals to 3 for the quarter, undoing most of the Carlton third term revival.
The result knocks Carlton out of the top 8, while Adelaide join the Blues on 16 points.
Adelaide                             3.4        8.6        9.11        15.14 (104)

Collingwood took some steps towards salvaging their 2009 season from a disappointing start when the
Magpies travelled to Subiaco to face the Eagles and came home with the 4 points after a hard-fought
22-point victory.
West Coast kicked the first 3 goals and led by 12 points at the first change, but that was the only joy the
Eagles were to experience all night. By half time the Magpies had gone to an 8-point lead, and the Eagles
4th goal was not to come until late in the third term. After having shown some promise in earlier home
games, this was easily West Coast's worst home performance. But for Collingwood it was a welcome
return to form, one that keeps them within reach of the top 8 despite having displayed indifferent form for
much of the season.
John Anthony and Leon Davis kicked 3 goals for Collingwood, while Davis and Dane Swan were among
their best. For the Eagles, Ben McKinley kicked 4 second-half goals, while Adam Selwood played a strong
game to restrict the losing margin to just 4 goals.
Collingwood                      1.4        4.10        8.12        12.16 (88)
West Coast                        3.4         3.8         5.10         9.12 (66)

The AFL's Indigenous Round saw the traditional "Dreamtime at the G" ceremony before the Richmond v
Essendon game, and fittingly Aboriginal players were prominent during the match. It was a match where
Richmond, under pressure during the week with speculation on the future of coach Terry Wallace, had a
dip early before the Bombers asserted themselves in the second half to take out a 40-point victory.
The Tigers, desperate to put in a solid performance to atone for recent shockers, led throughout the first
half and held a 16-point lead at the long break. But the Bombers turned the tables during the third quarter,
a 6 goals to 1 burst turning the deficit into a 12-point lead by the last change. The final quarter was also
one-way traffic, blowing the margin out to 40 points and moving the Bombers comfortably into the top 8.
Appropriately for an Indigenous Round game, Aboriginal players were among the best. Essendon's Pat
Ryder set the crowd into raptures with another superb high-flying mark in the last quarter, while Alwyn
Davey kicked 3 important third-quarter goals to get the Bombers back into the contest.
Essendon                           3.1        7.4        13.6        19.11 (125)

A good start can often be the difference between success and failure; and that was the case when Sydney
took on Port Adelaide at the SCG on Sunday. Eight goals in the opening quarter, to 8 seperate goalkickers,
got the Swans off to the start they wanted; and from there it was a simple task for the Swans to maintain
their lead and take out a 55-point victory.
Accurate kicking in the first quarter, a dominant midfield and a forward line that found goalkickers
emerging from everywhere got the Swans the start they wanted, and once the Swans had got off to such a
strong start the Power never looked a chance to work their way back into the contest. Although Port won
the third quarter, they never looked like making any inroads into Sydney's advantage.
But although the game was over as a contest well before the finish, there were plenty of high marks to
keep the crowd enthralled. Adam Goodes early on took a diving slips-catch mark. Daniel Motlop's flying
effort in the pocket was a highlight. But the best of the lot was a hanger from Heath Grundy, soaring on the
shoulders of his Port opponents to pull down what is surely a contender for Mark of the Year.

Leading by 9 points midway through the last quarter, Brisbane looked set to cause the boilover of the
season before St Kilda steadied, kicking 4 of the last 5 goals to take out a 16-point victory.
St Kilda led by 20 points at quarter time, and dominated much of the play in the second quarter; but the
contrast between St Kilda's inaccurate kicking and the Lions making the most of their opportunities saw
the margin cut to just 8 points at the long break. The third quarter was a similar story; and despite the
Saints having had 20 scoring shots to 13 by three-quarter time the Lions were in front and with the scent
of an upset.
In the end, the Saints finished with the running in time-on to take out the match; but the Lions gained a lot
of respect . Justin Koschitzke and Nick Riewoldt kicked 4 for the Saints, while Leigh Montagna and 200th
gamer Lenny Hayes were among the Saints' best. For the Lions, Jonathan Brown kicked 3 goals, while
Jedd Adcock was their best.

Reigning premiers Hawthorn always looked to have bottom side Melbourne under control, but a last-
quarter rally by the Demons saw the final Hawthorn winning margin reduced to just 22 points.
Getting off to a solid start, the Hawks kicked 11 goals to 4 in the opening half to lead by 43 points at the
long break. By the last change the lead had grown to 47 points before the Hawks took their foot off the
accelerator to allow the Demons to make the game closer than it otherwise would have been; a lapse that
may cost the Hawks dearly later in the season if positions within the finals are decided by percentage.
Lance Franklin kicked 4 goals and Jarryd Roughead 3 for the Hawks, while injury-prone youngster Beau
Muston in just his second AFL game was prominent around the ground. Colin Sylvia kicked 4 goals and
was easily the Demons' best player; but the Demons still find themselves on the bottom of the ladder and
staring down the barrel of a second straight wooden spoon.
Hawthorn                        6.2        11.7        16.9        17.12 (114)
