After leading for most of the game St Kilda were overrun in the dying stages of the final quarter in last week’s defeat to West Coast Eagles as they slipped to 0-2.
The West Coast Eagles played a get out of jail card with a stunning comeback to defeat St Kilda by 19 points at Domain Stadium. Trailing at every change, the Eagles didn’t hit the lead until the 21st minute mark of the final term with Josh Kennedy the hero as he booted three late goals to help snatch the victory.
St Kilda had a strong opening to the game and should have led by more after kicking 6.7 in the first quarter. Seb Ross (29 disposals), returning veteran Leigh Montagna (21, one goal), tough nut Luke Dunstan (20) and Jack Steven (20) were winning the contests for possession which provided the forwards with great supply.
A second half fightback for the Brisbane Lions almost caused a huge upset before Essendon settled and won by 27 points at the Gabba.
The Bombers looked to be coasting towards a big win when they led by 42 points late in the second term. Brisbane kicked 6.3 to 2.3 in the third term comeback to head into the final quarter trailing by just five points.
Eric Hipwood gave the Lions the lead early when he cooly converted a set-shot in the final term. But Essendon steadied and kicked the game’s final five goals to win the match.
The Lions’ leaders defiantly stood up in the contest, Tom Rockliff (28 disposals and 11 tackles), captain Dayne Beams (33 disposals and two goals) were standouts. Dayne Zorko was also a standout with 29 possessions whilst Stefan Martin won the ruck with 43 hit-outs.
