Essendon gave their top-eight credentials a boost when the Bombers came from behind to defeat Adelaide by 11
points at AAMI Stadium on Friday night.
Travelling to the City of Churches has been a challenge for the Bombers in recent seasons, and their last finals
appearance saw them flogged by the Crows; and the first quarter showed the potential for the Bombers to crash
to another hefty defeat. Slow, flat and error-prone, the Bombers were never in the contest during the first quarter,
as they were held goal-less; while the Crows ran through five unanswered goals to lead by 31 points at the first
change.
The Crows were a man down after Graham Johncock landed awkwardly after a marking contest, being assisted
from the field and subbed off after he failed to respond to treatment. The Bombers were getting more of the ball,
but some poor finishing would let them down as they kicked 2.5 for the quarter, while the Crows scored another
three goals to extend their lead to 36 points at the long break.
The Crows were still six goals up midway through the quarter, but by then Matthew Jaensch and Sam Jacobs had
joined Johncock on the sidelines; and with limited interchange options the Crows were slowed. Late in the
quarter the Bombers lifted, three goals in time-on reducing the margin to 16 points at three-quarter time.
Kyle Riemers goaled within 20 seconds of the start of the final quarter, and the game was alive. The Crows
resisted as long as they could, but the Bombers had snatched the momentum; and hit the front as the clock
ticked into time-on. Six goals to one for the quarter turned the deficit into victory; a game that for much of the
evening looked Adelaide’s for the taking had turned into Essendon’s first win at AAMI Stadium since the opening
round of 2007, propelling the Bombers into the top eight and sending Adelaide’s dismal season even worse.

AFL football came to North Queensland for the first time when Richmond took on Gold Coast at Cazaly’s Stadium
in Cairns. And the crowd that crammed into the small country oval saw Gold Coast take out their third win of the
season, a 15-point win over Richmond.
The small oval with open spaces behind the goals, a contrast to the concrete jungle of many modern stadiums,
saw a stiff southerly wind blowing through the game. Richmond won the toss, and kicking with the wind in the
opening quarter took control, with 14 scoring shots to three as they took a 36-point lead to quarter time.
But importantly, Gold Coast had managed to get one goal into the wind, something the Tigers were unable to do
during the second term. With the Suns having their turn at the scoring end, six unanswered goals saw the deficit
reversed out, and Gold Coast snatched the lead late in the quarter to lead by three points at half time.
The Tigers had the wind in the third term, but the premiership quarter would again prove pivotal to the
game. The Suns flooded numbers back, pressured and tackled the Tigers, and the errors in the
Richmond forward line began to glow. The Tigers kicked 2.7 for the quarter, and although they regained
the lead and held a 13-point advantage at three quarter time, the Suns were coming home with the wind at
their backs and with the support of the crowd.
It took the Suns a while to find their groove in the last quarter, and ten minutes passed before they finally
broke through for a goal. But it was the start of a strong final quarter, as the Suns kicked five goals to one,
taking the lead and heading for victory. The 15-point margin is the club’s biggest win to date, their third
victory of the season lifting them off the bottom and strongly boosting the club morale of the competition
newcomers.

Traditional rivals Carlton and Collingwood faced off in front of a blockbuster Saturday afternoon crowd at
the MCG. And after a closely-fought and exciting contest, it was top side Collingwood who took the points,
after defeating the Blues by 19 points.
The Magpies had suffered a distraction in the lead-up to the game, with Heath Shaw put under an 8-game
suspension after admitting to betting on games. But they put that behind them as the game got under way,
and were getting plenty of the ball in the first quarter. But the Magpies were inaccurate, which prevented
them from getting full reward for effort, and after kicking 2.6 for the quarter they led by just five points at
quarter time.
It was a similar story in the second quarter, and although Carlton were hanging in there, they never took
the lead and Collingwood looked to have the answers. In a low-scoring half of football, the Blues tried hard
but were unable to break the Magpies, and it was an 11-point lead to Collingwood at half time.
The game opened up in the third quarter, and the Blues made an attempt to snatch the lead. They came
perilously close, as they got to within a kick; and then hit the post four times during the third quarter. But
despite those posters, and a five-goal return, the Magpies won the quarter as they found enough space for
their runners to move and finished with six for the quarter, extending their lead to 17 points at the last
change.
The Blues had been gallant, and refused to concede, but were unable to make up ground on the Magpies.
Two goals apiece in a low-scoring final quarter wasn’t enough to get the Blues back into the game; and
the Magpies had done enough to win their eighth game on the trot and maintain top spot on the ladder.

St Kilda, after a slow start to the season, are getting their season back on track. Their third win on the trot,
a hard-fought 21-point win over West Coast at Docklands on Saturday evening, sees the Saints edge ever
closer to the top eight.
The Eagles had won their last five games, but soon found themselves shell-shocked against the
resurgent Saints, as they were blown out of the water in the first quarter. Six unanswered goals for the
opening term was the perfect start for the Saints, as they led by 36 points at quarter time and with the first
goal in the second term extended the margin to 43 points.
But the Eagles finally sparked into action, with four of the last five goals in the second term to reduce the
margin to 26 points at the long break. And the third term was a reversal of the first; as the Saints were
reduced to spectator status as the Eagles locked the home side out of the contest. The Saints were held
scoreless for the quarter, while the Eagles managed to create enough opportunities to hit the front during
time-on and lead by two points at three-quarter time.
It had looked a one-sided contest early, but the Saints’ lead had been eroded in its entirety, and
momentum looked to be with the Eagles at the last change. The last quarter began as a see-sawing
contest, with the Saints kicking the first goal to regain the lead; before the Eagles scored and the Saints
the third. The last four goals had all resulted in lead changes, and a thriller was in prospect. But the Saints
had regained the initiative, and added three more goals to round out the victory.
Leigh Montagna was a ball magnet for the Saints, picking up the ball 34 times; while Jason Gram with 31
and Brendan Goddard with 30 were also influential. For the Eagles, Dean Cox was their best after a
dominant performance in the ruck. Slowly but surely, the Saints are moving closer to the finals, a goal that
looked beyond them at the halfway point of the season. But it was a setback for West Coast, the Eagles
missing an opportunity to move into the top four.

It was a change for Melbourne, as their home in Melbourne was swapped for the tropical Darwin heat and
humidity for their match against Port Adelaide on Saturday night. But it was a worthwhile exercise for the
Demons, and they were rewarded with a 21-point win over the Power.
Keen to make a statement early and lock the Power out of the contest, the Demons got off to a flying start
with the first six goals of the game within 20 minutes. Ricky Petterd and Addam Maric were influential
during the first term, each kicking two goals and picking up plenty of possession. Even with Port kicking
two late goals, the Demons held a 24-point lead at quarter time.
The second term saw a Territory boy, Liam Jurrah, step up and provide the locals with some
entertainment. Jurrah kicked all three Melbourne goals for the quarter, with some high-flying marks. In a
season in which Jurrah’s game time has been severely restricted by injury, he underlined the value he can
show when he is fully fit with a virtuoso performance for the quarter. But despite Jurrah’s heroics, the
Demons fell short for the quarter, with the Power kicking four goals to three and the margin reduced to 20
points at the long break.
The Power had made a goal up on the Demons by the 10 minute mark of the quarter, but the Demons
then put on the decisive, match-winning break. Five unanswered goals in eight minutes, including an
impressive 55-metre torp by Colin Sylvia, saw the margin blow out to 45 points; and the Power’s fate was
sealed. Seven goals to four for the quarter was fair reward for an exciting display of footy, with the Demons
39 points ahead at three quarter time.
But the Power weren’t finished yet, and a determined charge early in the final quarter saw the match
brought back to life. Four goals in the first 10 minutes, including long range bombs by Chad Cornes and
Mitch Banner, and suddenly the margin was back to 14 points and Port began to have visions of a miracle
comeback to snatch the win.
But, although the Power had gone this far, they could go no further. For ten minutes the game remained
scoreless, as the Power searched in vain for another goal to continue their charge. Instead, a defensive
clearance was botched, the ball sailing out on the full. The resultant possession to the Demons saw the
ball land in the chest of the leading Stefan Martin; and with his goal, the Demons were safely home.
With the win, Melbourne keep themselves in contact with the top eight. But it was another disappointing
chapter in a depressing season for Port Adelaide; their sixth loss in a row and one that sees the once
proud club languishing at the bottom of the ladder.

Fremantle broke a long losing run when the Dockers defeated the Swans in Sydney for the first time since
1996, hanging on against the surging Swans to record a controversial 11-point win.
A scrappy opening term saw four of the six goals come from free kicks, including all three of Fremantle’s. It
set the tone for the day, in which some poor discipline by the Swans’ defence saw the Dockers gifted soft
goals by the umpires throughout the afternoon. Scores were level at quarter time, and early in the second
the Dockers looked set to run away as they skipped out to a 19-point lead. But the Swans fought back till
late in the quarter, reducing the margin to just seven points.
The weather had been overcast through the first half, and the heavens opened during the half time break;
and it continued to rain during the third quarter. But the rain and the slippery ball proved no problem for the
Dockers, as they kicked seven goals to two for the quarter to open up a 38-point lead at the last change.
But the Swans weren’t beaten yet, and in the final quarter they suddenly sprang back to life. Five
unanswered goals in 20 minutes saw the margin cut back to six points; with the Swans having the
confidence, the momentum, and the small but vocal home crowd on their side. Hopes were rising for the
home team that they could complete what would be a memorable come-from-behind win.
But the momentum was killed as Tadgh Kennelly gave away a 50 metre penalty, sending Nick Lower to 20
metres from goal to kick the goal that would seal victory for the Dockers. After a lopsided free kick count,
the crowd vented their fury at the umpires, particularly Ray Chamberlain who awarded the decisive 50
metre penalty.
Nick Lower, as well as kicking the match-winning goal, picked up 30 possessions for the game in a best
on ground performance; while Nathan Fyfe and Greg Broughton were also prominent. For the Swans,
Jarrad McVeigh and Daniel Hannebery were solid contributors. The result sees the Dockers move ahead
of the Swans on the ladder, strengthening their hold on a top-eight position and shortening the odds of
back-to-back finals appearances for the first time in Fremantle’s history.

Geelong were the hottest of favourites to record a big win over Brisbane when the two sides clashed at the
Gabba on Sunday afternoon. But in the end, although the Cats emerged with the points thanks to an eight-
goal haul by James Podsiadly, it was far from convincing as the unfancied Lions took the fight up to the
Cats. It was only late in the game that the Cats pulled away to record an unconvincing 29-point victory.
The Lions came out swinging, and it didn’t take long for the Cats to realise they were in for a fight. Two first
quarter goals to Todd Banfield got the Lions off to a strong start, and they went to an eight-point lead at
quarter time. But the Cats lifted in the second term, with second year gun James Podsiadly presenting
himself as a handy target. Podsiadly kicked four goals for the quarter, among the Cats’ six, as the visitors
took the lead shortly before half time and led by two points at the long break.
The lead switched hand several times during the third term, as the Lions continued to take the fight up to
the Cats. But midway through the quarter, the Lions suffered a body blow as captain Jonathan Brown was
flattened in a collision and departed the field in a neck brace suffering from concussion. And without
Brown’s leadership, the Lions were unable to maintain the pace during the final term.
The Lions were leading by three points at three quarter time, but the complexion of the game changed in
the final term. Finally the Cats turned on the drive and pace that had been expected all day, and the Cats
would dominate around the ground. Seven goals to two for the quarter saw the Cats record a 29-point
victory, after a game that for much of the afternoon looked poised to be considerably closer. The Lions may
not have won the game, but they lost no respect after a gutsy and determined performance.

North Melbourne bounced back from the humiliation of last week’s heavy defeat to Collingwood when they
completed a 31-point win over the Western Bulldogs at Docklands on Sunday evening.
The Kangaroos started brightly with two early goals, and with Daniel Wells picking up a stack of
possession; but the Bulldogs replied with the next five goals, leading by 20 points at one stage late in the
opening term and by 12 points at quarter time.
But in the second quarter, the momentum of the game shifted and it was the Kangaroos who assumed
control of the contest. It was a high-scoring shootout, with both sides electing to run rather than tackle, to
create space rather than flood, to attack rather than defend. But it was the Kangaroos who did it better, with
eight goals to two for the quarter turning the deficit into a 27-point half time lead.
When Lachie Hensen kicked the first goal of the third term, the Kangaroos were leading by over five goals,
and looking good. But this was a game of swinging fortunes, and the pendulum suddenly and decisively
swung the Bulldogs’ way for the remainder of the quarter. The Bulldogs kicked six goals for the term,
reducing the margin back to within a kick of the Kangaroos at three-quarter time and the game was still
very much up for grabs.
The Bulldogs took the lead early in the last quarter, but that propelled the Kangaroos into action, and an
explosive burst of five goals in five minutes opened up a break from which there would be no turning back.
The Kangaroos finished with eight goals to four for the quarter, another open and high scoring quarter of
footy; as they finished the game as 31-point winners.
Jack Ziebell was a ball magnet all day, finishing with a whopping 41 possessions in a best on ground
performance. Andrew Swallow and Daniel Wells were also prominent possession-getters, while Drew
Petrie proved a potent force up forward with five goals. For the Bulldogs, Barry Hall contributed five goals,
while Daniel Cross and Matthew Boyd were among their best. It was a result that keeps the Kangaroos
within reach of the top eight, but one which brought the Bulldogs’ four-game winning streak to an end.
