Young goals for Freo

Dockers star Hayden Young has stepped up when his team needed him and he booted a left foot shot on the run.

The Magpies will have to fight to keep this match in their grasp.

Darcy goals

Collingwood have been pinged for time-wasting after a player handed the ball to his teammate instead of the umpire after a ball-up was called.

Sean Darcy kicked the goal and now Fremantle have a sniff.

Banfield kicks his third

Banfield has booted another goal. This one on the run.

He is keeping the Dockers in this match but time is fast running out.

Pies 75, Freo 56 with six mins to go.


Mihocek is off with hamstring ‘awareness’; Hill goals

You hope for Brody Mihocek’s sake that it is only some soreness but the Collingwood forward, who has been crucial in this second half, won’t return after reporting some hamstring “awareness” in the final term.

He just missed two weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Magpies have kept attacking, with Wil Parker finding Bobby Hill on the goal line. He snapped the goal and did his Indigenous dance as a celebration.

Pies 75, Freo 50 with seven mins to go.


Banfield gives Dockers hope

Banfield has booted his second goal and it gives the Dockers some slim hope from here.

Pies 69, Freo 50 with 11 mins to go.


Crowd tonight is 54,035

The Magpies and Dockers fans have turned out in big numbers in Perth tonight with 54,035 in attendance.

Channel Seven said it was the biggest non-derby crowd for a Fremantle home game.

Crisp kicks key goal

Jack Crisp has taken a mark and booted the all-important first goal of the last term.

He was fed a lovely weighted kick from Nick Daicos and then went back and booted the goal.

That is six-straight goal for the Magpies since the start of the third term.

A brilliant set shot by Jack Crisp, from a position on the ground he likes — from 50, on the left hand side of the ground.

He’s put together an immense month after a slow start to the year and is a big reason why Collingwood are back in the premiership hunt.

Huge task for Dockers

By Andrew Stafford

An incredible quarter of football by the Magpies, holding Walyalup goalless and repeatedly pressuring them into error while scoring five goals to take a handy 16-point lead into the last quarter.

Key to the surge was returning forward Brody Mihocek. It wasn’t just that he kicked the first two goals; it was his presence and determination to make every contest which helped create a couple more.

And again, Joe Richards and Harvey Harrison are showing they have big futures. They are natural, instinctive footballers.

The Dockers are in trouble. Jye Amiss has lost all confidence in his kicking, and Josh Treacy has been unsighted after an early goal.

They will need a mighty response to get back over the line here.


Three-quarter time stats


3QT: Collingwood 8.12 (60) to Fremantle 6.8 (44)

The Magpies have made their move and go into the final term in charge of the contest.

But the Dockers are close enough if they are good enough.

If you are looking for something positive, between the two sides, the last 10 goals have been kicked at the end Freo will kick to in the final term.
