Commentary

  • Q4 30:24

    It is also the biggest differential in inside 50's in a match since the stat was recorded in 1999. 51 differential just shading the old record of 50

  • Q4 30:23

    To illustrate the dominance of the performance, Melbourne had the least ever inside 50's since the stat was recorded in 1999. 19 inside 50's eclipsing the old record of 20

  • Q4 30:18

    FULL TIME: Geelong canter to a comfortable 68 point win. Johnson had 38 touches while HorlinSmith, Caddy and Hawkins kicked two majors

  • Q4 28:59

    GOAL CATS: Stevie J does what Stevie J does. Steals the ball at full steam and rams through the snap from 15m out

  • Q4 26:47

    Geelong have kicked 1.8 this quarter

  • Q4 25:20

    BEHIND CATS: The Dees again fail to clear the footy and Pods tries an audacious shot from 65m out and it bounces into the woodwork. The crowd gasp loudly

  • Q4 24:10

    BEHIND CATS: Murdoch, with all the time in the world, sharks the ball off the pack but somehow misses his snap. Should have been six points but doesn't matter in the scheme of things

  • Q4 22:15

    GOAL CATS: Stringer wobbles a kick forward and Pods marks on his chest by doing the right thing and playing in front. He steers the set shot straight through from 35m

  • Q4 21:10

    BEHIND CATS: Lonergan sneaks his way forward and marks Selwood's chip 40m out on a 45 degree angle. With the heavy ball, he can't guide it through the big sticks

  • Q4 19:26

    Dees winning the quarter so far. 1.1 to 0.5. Geelong wasteful however

  • Q4 18:27

    Definitely been Melbourne's best quarter so far today. Geelong may have taken the foot off the pedal slightly

  • Q4 16:44

    GOAL DEMONS: Bartel drops an easy chest mark on the last line. He slams the ball on the boot but it goes straight to Howe. The highflying Melbourne star snaps an easy goal

  • Q4 15:15

    The greatest differential in inside 50's between two sides is 50...the current difference between these two sides is 44 at the moment

  • Q4 14:45

    The record low for inside 50's (since they were recorded in 1999) is 20. Melbourne currently have 16

  • Q4 12:13

    Blicavs nearly kicked the ball the wrong way in a moment of comedy

  • Q4 11:10

    BEHIND DEMONS: Terlich marks 45m out basically straight in front. His shot is slightly across the face and can only register a minor score

  • Q4 08:51

    BEHIND CATS: Geelong counter at pace through the corridor. Caddy streams through with the ball. From 80m he goes for goal but it bounces and skids through for a behind

  • Q4 07:22

    BEHIND CATS: Selwood tries to find Pods inside 50 but the ball is off hands and skids through for a behind

  • Q4 06:27

    Caddy has been good in the wet conditions today. 19 disposals is a good contribution

  • Q4 04:57

    Geelong have kicked 8.8 from turnovers. Melbourne only 0.1

  • Q4 03:50

    BEHIND CATS: Gawn handballs through a rushed behind and Geelong press deep again. Melbourne holding on as Geelong look to blow the deficit out

  • Q4 02:49

    BEHIND CATS: The Cats lock the ball inside their forward 50 and HorlinSmith gets a fraction of a second to snap at goal but it misses to the right

  • Q4 01:41

    BEHIND CATS: Motlop paddles the ball along the boundary, gathers and handballs to Selwood at point blank on the goalline, but under pressure the ball ricochets and hits the post

  • Q4 00:01

    The umpire has bounced the ball for the last quarter

  • Q3 31:33

    THREE QUARTER TIME: Geelong extend their lead to 55 points with another dominant quarter. The conditions are keeping the margin low today. No doubt about it

  • Q3 31:23

    BEHIND DEMONS: The Dees GO INSIDE 50!! Davey's shot from 55m on the run skids through the wrong side of the left post. Two forward entries for 1.1 for the Dees this quarter

  • Q3 30:04

    Less than a minute to go and the Cats lead by 56 points. The Demons still with only 1 inside 50 for the quarter

  • Q3 28:00

    GOAL CATS: Brilliant roving by Motlop. The ball comes off McDonald's hands and the quick Cat sharks the footy and smashes through the goal through on the snap from 25m

  • Q3 26:00

    Ball up after ball up is occurring inside Geelong's forward 50. Rain is heavier and it's harder to move to the ball cleanly

  • Q3 23:57

    Inside 50's are 131 in favour of Geelong this quarter. They kept Fremantle to one inside 50 in the third quarter in their last game at Simonds Stadium!!

  • Q3 22:40

    BEHIND CATS: Johnson mongrels another forward 50 entry but it's to Pods advantage and he hauls in the mark 33m out on a tight angle. He misses the shot to the near side

  • Q3 20:00

    Each team has just made their substitution. Geelong: Guthrie on, Mackie off. Melbourne: Blease on, Fitzpatrick off

  • Q3 17:40

    GOAL CATS: Big Hawkins steams out of the goalsquare and marks on the lead 25m out on a slight angle. He drills the goal straight through the middle and the margin is now 49 points

  • Q3 16:50

    Nathan Jones has tried hard for Melbourne with 19 disposals so far

  • Q3 15:45

    Stevie J has had a field day today. Gathered 25 possessions up to this point in the game

  • Q3 12:40

    GOAL CATS: Geelong force the ball forward and Caddy (playing in front again) gathers the footy and snaps straight away on the turn from 20m to get his second goal of the quarter!!

  • Q3 10:25

    GOAL DEMONS: ExCat Byrnes snaps a wonderful goal from the boundary on his opposite foot. The Cats failed to kill the ball as it came in long and deep. Can the Dees get the next one?

  • Q3 07:46

    The game is being played between to the two arcs at the moment. Lots of ballups and scrimmages. Conditions making it a complete scrap

  • Q3 05:05

    GOAL CATS: Johnson gives off a lookaway handball to Stringer, who's dinky snap is marked by Caddy 20m out. The former GC youngster makes no mistake. Well done for playing in front!!

  • Q3 03:40

    BEHIND CATS: Sylvia tries to bulldoze his way out of the pack but he is claimed by Stringer and it's holding the ball. From 25m out with not much angle, Stringer misses to the left

  • Q3 02:15

    Geelong have been inside 50 a few times for no reward. Conditions still horrendous here at Simonds Stadium

  • Q3 00:01

    The premiership quarter is underway at Simonds Stadium. Can Melbourne fight their way back into the game or will it be the expected Geelong procession?

  • Q2 29:02

    HALF TIME: The Cats hold a comfortable 36 point lead at the long break. They really strangled the life out of the Dees that quarter. Craig needs to regroup his side for the premiership quarter!!

  • Q2 27:50

    BEHIND CATS: 150 gamer Selwood marks on the lead 45m out. His set shot fades at the last moment out to the right hand side

  • Q2 25:46

    GOAL CATS: Johnson attempts to volley a goal but fresh airs it, Pods picks up the ball under no real pressure and snaps an easy goal from 20m out

  • Q2 25:00

    Was great play by Nicholson. Backed his pace in and was rewarded by assisting his team's only goal for the quarter

  • Q2 24:01

    GOAL DEMONS: Nicholson takes Mackie on 55m out, beats him for pace and spots up an unmanned Dawes in 10m out. Dawes plays on and slams the sixpointer through from close range!

  • Q2 22:50

    BEHIND CATS: Johnson robs the ball off Toumpas deep in the pocket and his snap just misses. The crowd would have been up if that snuck in

  • Q2 21:52

    Geelong leading the inside 50's 26 to 12 at the moment. Illustrating their dominance

  • Q2 20:01

    BEHIND DEMONS: Davey gathers the ball and streams through forward 50. His checkside attempt on the run from 35m was never close and bounces disappointingly through for a behind

  • Q2 19:01

    BEHIND DEMONS: Melbourne finally hit the scoreboard. A deep kick inside 50 by Byrnes is off hands and sheparded through by Taylor for a behind

  • Q2 17:41

    The Dees need a couple of late goals to get some momentum with half time slowly approaching. Just need to be a bit more cleaner going forward

  • Q2 14:31

    Melbourne still haven't scored this quarter. To be honest, they don't really look like scoring either. Only a couple of forward 50 entries too

  • Q2 12:07

    GOAL CATS: Melbourne have their best patch of the quarter but the Cats counter and Smedts goes for goal from inside the centre square and it skids through for six points!!

  • Q2 09:31

    You feel as if the floodgates are about to open here. Geelong's pressure has lifted. Only a matter of time before the scoreboard pressure comes

  • Q2 07:53

    Geelong starting to get on top here. Melbourne don't really look like being able to sweep the ball forward effectively

  • Q2 06:15

    BEHIND CATS: Simpson finds space deep in the pocket and takes an uncontested mark. He pushes his set shot from 40m across the face

  • Q2 04:30

    BEHIND CATS: Johnson goes for goal from outside 50 and it sails through the big sticks!! But wait.....it's touched off the boot. Only a minor score

  • Q2 03:30

    BEHIND CATS: The Cats go deep inside 50 again and McDonald gets up to thump the ball through for a rushed behind

  • Q2 01:50

    GOAL CATS: Pods uses strength to fend off his opponent on the boundary, his kick to the hotspot is taken by Duncan at full speed and he dribbles through an easy goal. Great attack!

  • Q2 01:20

    Definitely wet weather football today. Huge numbers around the ball. Geelong look slightly classier but the Demons are holding their own in the scrimmages at the moment

  • Q2 00:01

    Second quarter is underway!!

  • Q1 29:01

    HorlinSmith, the late addition to the Geelong side for Mathew Stokes (groin), has been the spark up forward with a couple of goals. Byrnes the solitary goalkicker for the Dees

  • Q1 29:00

    QUARTER TIME: Melbourne fighting valiantly but Geelong hold sway by 21 points at the first break

  • Q1 26:41

    BEHIND CATS: Kelly tries a miraculous snap from the boundary and it trickles into the post. Nearly an amazing goal

  • Q1 25:42

    BEHIND CATS: Melbourne struggle to clear the ball from their defensive 50. Johnson profits but his flying shot for goal comes off hands for a point

  • Q1 24:11

    Too easy for the Cats. Hunt's win a free for in the back in the centre square and pumps it forward. Pods leaps for the ball and marks with Dunn in tow. His set shot from 40m doesn't make the distance

  • Q1 20:30

    BEHIND CATS: Kelly floats a high ball inside 50 and Smedts marks with a metre gap on his oppponent. His set shot from 35m drifts out to the left however

  • Q1 19:00

    Greasy conditions here at Simonds Stadium. Still over seven minutes to go in the quarter. Geelong are pressing the ball into their forward half

  • Q1 17:00

    HorlinSmith has two goals for the Cats with singles to Hawkins and Stringer. Byrnes has Melbourne's only goal

  • Q1 00:01

    Apologies for the late start in commentary. We have had technical difficulties

  • Q1 00:00

Cats cruise as Dees break unwanted record

Highlights: Geelong v Melbourne The Cats and Demons clash in round 16

Cats George Horlin-Smith and Mitch Duncan celebrate a goal on Saturday against the Dees

GEELONG has continued its mid-season surge by cruising to a 68-point victory over Melbourne at Simonds Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

In cold and wet conditions, with the new lights on for the entire afternoon, the Cats kicked the first three goals of the game and were never headed from there, winning 13.20 (98) to 4.6 (30). 


It was Geelong's third win in succession, its 13th for the season and its ninth on the trot against Melbourne.

The Demons were competitive early. In fact, they led the inside-50 count 8-5 at 15-minute mark of the first quarter.

But they rarely went forward after that. By the mid-point of the last quarter, the Cats had 62 inside-50s to 16.


Melbourne's final tally of 19 inside-50s was a new record low; breaking the previous mark of 20, set by the Brisbane Lions against Fremantle last season.

The Dees also notched their equal-lowest score in over 70 years of visits to Simonds Stadium.

When all that is taken into account, Geelong probably should have won by a lot more.

Joel Selwood led the way for his team in his 150th game. The Cats' skipper gathered eight possessions in the first quarter and finished with 30.

Back after serving his two-match suspension, mercurial midfielder Steve Johnson, who was tagged by Daniel Nicholson, was the leading ball-winner on the ground.


Johnson had the Sherrin on a string during the second quarter, when he picked up 15 disposals, and ended the game with 38, although at only 34 per cent efficiency.

James Kelly and Josh Caddy were other leading lights in the midfield.

Caddy also kicked two goals, as did James Podsiadly, Tom Hawkins, and George Horlin-Smith, who came into Geelong's line-up when Mathew Stokes pulled out due to groin soreness.

In his first game since suffering a serious shoulder injury in round three, speedster Travis Varcoe eased his way back into footy with eight touches.
 
Harry Taylor held things together down back until he was switched to the forward line in the third term. At the same time, the Cats continued their experimentation by playing ruckman Mark Blicavs in a key defensive post on Jack Watts.

"I don't think there's a whole lot you can glean from the game, to be honest," Geelong coach Chris Scott said. "We did what we needed to do, and I'm pleased from that perspective.

"We've got to acknowledge that our players did read the conditions well and brought the right attitude to the game and implemented those basics well."

In their fourth game under interim coach Neil Craig, the Demons fought hard but were outclassed in most positions on the ground.

Former Geelong player Shannon Byrnes was their most dynamic contributor.

Byrnes, who played in two premierships with the Cats, registered Melbourne's first goal with a 50m bomb on the run. He also slotted a brilliant right-foot snap from near the boundary in the third quarter.

Nathan Jones and Matt Jones battled hard, while Colin Garland continued his great season with a solid performance in the backline.

"If I had to be critical of our club today, it would have been that we did not adjust to the conditions with the way the ball should be moved," Melbourne coach Neil Craig said after the game.

"So, anyway, that's we've experienced and that is part of our development as a club.

"Capacity to change our game in the way we executed was poor, so we tried to use the handball too much rather than the kick."

After a very impressive showing against the Sydney Swans last weekend, big forward Jack Fitzpatrick was brought back to earth by the terrible conditions. 

He was subbed out during the third quarter after managing only one kick, one handball, one mark and five hit-outs.

Melbourne will head north to host the Brisbane Lions at Darwin's TIO Stadium next Saturday night.

Geelong will be aiming to further entrench itself in the top two when it travels to Adelaide to meet the Crows at AAMI Stadium next Sunday.

The Cats are expecting to regain Stokes (groin), star defender Corey Enright (foot) and veteran midfielder Joel Corey (concussion) for the trip to South Australia.
