  • Q3 23:45

    BEHIND BOMBERSGoddard jabs the kick to Pears and he in turn spears the pass to Hurley who does not have to break stride. Unfortunately Hurley is unable to finish the job from 40.

  • Q3 21:40

  • Q3 10:40

    BEHIND DOGSDickson just misses the shot at goal under pressure and reduces the margin to 17 points.

  • Q3 07:50

  • Q3 00:01

    A 6 goal second quarter (3 each from both sides) so the Dogs have broken even with the Bombers since the first term. It will be interesting to see if they can sustain the effort. Third term underway.

  • Q2 26:55

    HALF TIMEThe Bombers step up and match the intensity shown by the Dogs in that quarter to grab two late goals and take a 23-point advantage in to the main break. Entertaining contest.

  • Q2 24:10

    GOAL BOMBERSAnother cracking long-range goal from the Bombers as Myers launches the bomb from 60 out and he has a very powerful left boot! Roughead unable to get back in time to touch it.

  • Q2 19:40

    Zaharakis back on the field and the Bombers need his skills and smarts at the moment because the Dogs are coming and coming fast. Margin is 10 points.

  • Q2 17:55

    GOAL DOGSStevens also playing the game of his life and with possession number 19 he tumbles home a fantastic major after roving the ball at the back of the pack. Dogs right in this one!

  • Q2 16:55

    Hrovat playing a sensational game with 17 touches and the Dogs are playing with some real mongrel. Zaharakis off the ground again and still in pain after that nasty knee in the back.

  • Q2 15:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSColyer with acres of space ahead of him, he gallops away to the paint and keep the shot low but misses to the left.

  • Q2 14:30

    Dogs with the last six forward 50 entries and they have really stepped up a gear and increased their intensity at the footy. Great match at the moment and the crowd are loving it.

  • Q2 12:20

    GOAL DOGSTutt with a beautifully guided kick over the top of the Essendon defender and in to the arms of Jones. From 30, Jones slots his second and the Dogs hit back again!

    GOAL DOGSLiberatore gets on to his trusty left boot and sets sail from the 50m arc and guides home a very important goal for the Dogs. Bombers by 21.

  • Q2 06:15

    GOAL BOMBERSMyers thumps the kick forward from the heart of Etihad Stadium and Bellchambers out-bodies Roughead and sticks the mark with strong dukes. As easy as you like; both the mark and goal.

  • Q2 03:30

    Zaharakis got a knee in the back in the marking contest and is taking in some deep breaths. He'll be OK, but will be given some time to recover on the bench.

  • Q2 00:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSWell done Roughead as he gets his fist to the ball and knocks through the shot on the run from Zaharakis.

  • Q2 00:01

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle is gifted a shot at goal from point blank range courtesy of a free kick but he shanks the kick and the Dogs are let off the hook.

  • Q1 27:45

    GOAL DOGSSensational goal from Smith with a stunning snap around the corner deep in the left forward pocket and in the last couple of minutes the Dogs have responded well.

  • Q1 25:40

    GOAL DOGSStevens drifts his pass to the advantage side of Jones who takes a very strong overhead contested mark 20m from goal. The Dogs grab their opener as we approach quarter time.

  • Q1 23:30

    QUARTER TIMEA fantastic response from the Dogs who were being beaten all over the ground for majority of that term but manage to bag three late majors to trail by 20 at quarter time.

  • Q1 23:30

    GOAL BOMBERSGreat transition footy by the Bombers. Dempsey hands to Kommar running through the middle and he hits Ryder. Bombers flying as Ryder makes no mistake from 50.

    BEHIND DOGSTutt with a great opportunity for the Dogs' first goal but he makes a mess and misses to the left.

  • Q1 21:00

    GOAL BOMBERSBombers are running riot as Kommar knocks the ball through to Winderlich who bends through a fantastic goal from 35 and Essendon leads by 32 points.

  • Q1 20:30

    Goal of the year contender that shot from Melksham even though replays suggest he was about a metre over the boundary line. Glad the umpire didn't call out of bounds as it was a stunning major.

  • Q1 17:50

    GOAL BOMBERSMelksham drops the mark 45 out tight up against the boundary but makes amends as he regathers, unloads from the line (looked like he was over) and sinks a cracker!

  • Q1 15:00

    GOAL BOMBERSGoddard this time the beneficiary of a long kick forward as he gathers at the back of the pack and is able to curl home the Bombers' third goal of the afternoon. Ominous signs.

  • Q1 14:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSColyer with a neat kick to Hurley tight in the pocket. Hurley runs around to lessen the angle but pulls the shot too much.

    GOAL BOMBERSGoddard swoops on the loose footy deep inside 50 and centres a nice handpass to Carlisle who has ample time to steady and nail a lovely goal. Bombers by 13.

  • Q1 08:50

    BEHIND DOGSGoodes lowers his eyes and chips the pass to Hrovat just inside attacking 50. His shot has the carry but not the accuracy.

  • Q1 05:35

    GOAL BOMBERSWinderlich drives to full forward and Bellchambers with strength and height gets a great leap at the flight of the footy and clunks the overhead grab. He turns and pumps it home.

  • Q1 04:10

    BEHIND BOMBERSZaharakis under pressure misses the shot at goal to the left hand side from about 35.

  • Q1 03:15

    BEHIND BOMBERSA snap out of the congestion from Stanton flies well off target across the face of goals.

Bulldogs brave, but Bombers' class shines in thrilling clash

By Mark Macgugan 07:24pm July 14, 13

Highlights: Western Bulldogs v Essendon The Dogs and Bombers clash in round 16

294851-tlsnewsportrait.jpg

Bulldogs ruckman and Will Minson and Bombers defender Cale Hooker leap for a mark

IT WAS far from easy, but Essendon has passed its first test without injured captain Jobe Watson, beating the Western Bulldogs by 31 points at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The 18.13 (121) to 14.6 (90) win in front of 32,500 fans was the Bombers' 12th of the season, and will see them safe inside the top four for another week.


But coach James Hird won't be totally satisfied with the performance after his team let the Bulldogs back into the match after having booted the first six goals. 

Behind by 37 points at the 18-minute mark of the first term, the Bulldogs had the better of play for much of the next two-and-a-half quarters.

Dominating clearances and contested possessions, they whittled the lead back to 11 points mid-way through the final quarter, and would have been even closer if not for a disallowed goal to Nathan Hrovat, after the umpire decided not to pay advantage when Tom Liberatore won a free kick for a tackle on Brendon Goddard.

The decision proved critical as the Bombers steadied and kicked the next three goals to ice the game.


Hrovat said after the game he was surprised by the umpire's call.

"I honestly don't know why it wasn't called advantage," the 19-year-old said.

"I think a lot of players out on the ground, including Essendon players, didn't know.

"But I guess the umpire had his reasons to bring it back."

Hird praised the Bulldogs for their efforts – particularly in contested ball, where they won 165-135 – but maintained his team had deserved its win.

"I still think we were the better team, although the Bulldogs played some really good football," he said.

"It was an outstanding performance by [them] around the ball, giving us a hiding in the contested possessions, and really they were pretty exciting with the ball too.

"It took our defence and midfield time to adjust too, and once we [did] it was probably OK." 

Lively half-forward Jason Winderlich was outstanding for the winners, booting a game-high four goals, including a goal of the year contender during the third quarter.

He also had 23 disposals and laid seven tackles to be clearly Essendon's best player.


Veteran Dustin Fletcher's ability to chop off incoming Bulldogs kicks was critical in defence, while Dyson Heppell, Brent Stanton and Goddard were hard workers through the midfield.

The brave Bulldogs gained great service from young midfielders Hrovat and Tom Liberatore, along with veterans Adam Cooney and Robert Murphy.

In his first game of the season, Jarrad Grant also turned in an encouraging display, finishing with 19 disposals and a goal.


The Bombers' opening quarter blitz included a brilliant yet controversial goal from Jake Melksham.

The 21-year-old appeared to be outside the boundary line when he launched a quick kick from the forward pocket, but the boundary umpire did not call out of bounds and the shot sailed through.

It is the first time the Bombers have won 12 games in a season since 2004, but the victory did not come without a price, with midfielder David Zaharakis subbed from the game after receiving a knee to the back.  

However, Hird said he was hopeful Zaharakis would be fit to face Greater Western Sydney next week. 

Watson is expected to miss at least another three weeks after having surgery to repair the broken collarbone he suffered against Port Adelaide last week.

Young Bulldog Clay Smith was the major casualty of the hard-fought game, leaving the ground on crutches and with ice on his right knee.

Coach Brendan McCartney said early signs were that Smith had ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, which would likely rule him out for a year.
