Sydney survive Essendon fightback, Dockers end hoodoo

9 junio 2012 16:04

In one of the season's most memorable finishes, the Swans appeared home when they led by 48 points late in the third quarter after Jarrad McVeigh kicked truly, with Essendon having scored a woefully inaccurate 2.14 to that stage of the match.

Somehow, the Bombers found their rhythm and fired off nine goals to two in an incredible final term, but the Swans hung on to claim a 13.8 (86) to 11.16 (82) victory.

Also on Saturday, a seven-goal haul to St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt helped his side to a 95-point thrashing of the Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium.

The Saints were never in doubt of securing the four points as they had too much skill and spirit, overrunning the winless Suns.

Compounding the loss for Guy McKenna's team was a knee injury to defender Campbell Brown, who donned a leg brace after being substituted in the second quarter.

Earlier, Fremantle breathed new life into their stalled 2012 campaign with a memorable backs-to-the-wall 12-point victory over a stunned Richmond at a sodden MCG.

The Dockers lost superstar ruckman Aaron Sandilands two minutes into the contest but that did not stop them from registering a famous 12.6 (78) to 9.12 (66) win to end their five-year, 10-match barren stretch at venue.

The result sees Fremantle leapfrog Richmond on the ladder as the Tigers' charge towards the top eight hit a major hurdle.
