Commentary

  • Q4 25:10

    GOAL CATSIt's game set and match for Geelong with Hawkins flying like a gazelle on a lead to mark. From 45 metres out the kick starts left but comes back beautifully. Cats are home and hosed.

  • Q4 22:10

    BEHIND CATSMotlop runs inside 50 but he appears to think about his kick too much before actually kicking it. His kick from 15 metres out is sprayed and lucky to register a minor score.

  • Q4 20:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSMelksham kicks a long flat kick that seems to beat them all and roll through for a behind. That's an accidental score if ever there was one.

  • Q4 18:20

    GOAL BOMBERSSelwood handballs too high and causes the turnover. A couple of handballs later and Crameri steadies 40 metres out. He kicks it over the goal umpire's head.

  • Q4 16:50

    GOAL BOMBERSHurley is paid the free kick in the contest for the ball. Goddard is screaming for it but Hurley ignores him and goes BANG! It comes back nicely and it's a 55 metre goal for Hurley.

  • Q4 14:30

    The Cats will again be discussed in terms of premiership credentials. Most of us thought their famous run was coming to an end. This is an odd year and they've won the flag in the last 3 odd years.

  • Q4 11:50

    BEHIND CATSBlicavs snaps it from close range, but he just misses.

  • Q4 10:40

    Essendon needs a miracle now to win this with Geelong at the top of their game.

  • Q4 09:15

    GOAL CATSThe Cats have come back and kicked back to back goals. They have just about knocked the wind out of Essendon's sails with Smedts riding home his second goal.

  • Q4 07:20

    GOAL CATSJust when it looked like Essendon were mounting their case, a terrible kick out of defence goes to Jimmy Bartel. From 50 Bartel sends it straight through the middle.

  • Q4 05:40

    GOAL BOMBERSBellchambers marks besides the behind post and kicks the goal off the tightest of angles.

  • Q4 03:20

    GOAL BOMBERSWatson runs through the corridor and kicks to the lead of Gumbleton who marks. He takes a few deep breaths before jogging in and kicking the goal. Great kick!

  • Q4 01:30

    GOAL CATSBlicavs does what every Essendon supporter doesn't want him to do - kick the first goal of the final quarter. Blicavs kicks it from 54 metres out and the Bombers are up against it.

  • Q4 00:01

  • Q3 31:40

  • Q3 27:20

    GOAL CATSBellchambers has his handball charged down by Stokes who thanks him for the birthday gift. Problem is it's not his birthday. Stokes accepts anyway and kicks the goal!

    BEHIND BOMBERSWatson is about to kick into an open goal before he is tackled late in the piece and misses to the right.

  • Q3 25:20

    BEHIND CATSMotlop does all the hard work before trying to be overzealous with the kick and missing to the right.

  • Q3 24:40

    GOAL CATSHawkins uses his body to edge out his opponent and take the mark. He goes back and kicks goal number 2. Geelong are taking their chances. There is the difference.

  • Q3 22:10

    BEHIND BOMBERSSurely Watson the skipper will right the wrongs of Essendon's poor kicking tonight. He runs in 35 metres out and misses to the right. What is going on?

  • Q3 22:10

    BEHIND BOMBERSZaharakis tries one from 49 metres out but it misses to the right.

  • Q3 20:50

  • Q3 19:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSHocking snaps one under pressure but it's across the face of goal. Essendon missing their chances.

  • Q3 18:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSKommer seems to have dragged one in off the tight angle but the score review leads to an inconclusive result. Goal umpire thought it had hit the post.

  • Q3 15:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSNow it's Geelong's turn to be under pressure with the Bombers pressing. The Cats defence team up to punch it through for a rushed behind.

    BEHIND BOMBERSMyers snaps from the pocket but his shot misses narrowly.

  • Q1 17:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSZaharakis flies like an eagle and takes a very good mark. Unfortunately for Bombers fans the mark was a lot better than the set shot at goal.

Mathew Stokes and Tom Lonergan celebrate Geelong's seventh straight win

GEELONG is now the only unbeaten team in the competition after defeating Essendon by 28 points before a sell-out crowd of 53,014 at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

Chris Scott's men were 18 points down at the 11-minute mark of the second quarter, but the game changed completely between then and the two-minute mark of the final term.

The Cats booted 11.4 to 1.13 in that period, grabbing a 27-point lead by the final change, and they went on with the job from there, winning 17.11 (113) to 11.19 (85) to improve to 7-0 for the season.

Five talking points: Geelong v Essendon

"It looked to me to be a really high-pressure game," Scott said after the match.

"It was pretty fierce and a pretty high-standard game as well.

"The most important thing early in the season is to get over the line, but the big picture for us is that we want to keep improving our game. We think we've got a long way to go."

The result continues Geelong's recent domination of Essendon. The Cats have now won eight of their last nine games against the Bombers.

"I don't know (if we) blew it. We certainly felt we were in the game and closer than what the scoreline said," Dons coach James Hird said after his side’s first loss of the year.
 
"We would have liked to have used the ball a bit better in the second quarter when we had our three or four-goal lead, and also kicking 1.9 (in the third quarter) never helps.

"The guys … certainly didn't give up and we'll learn a lot from that game."

Midfielders Steve Johnson (who equalled a career-high with 36 possessions) and Mathew Stokes were among the many stars for the winners.

First-gamer Jackson Thurlow – the club's first pick in last year's NAB AFL Draft – also looked very comfortable at the highest level.

Elsewhere, ruckman Mark Blicavs continued his remarkable debut season by kicking two goals, while Steven Motlop also showed repeated flashes of brilliance up forward, yet some inaccurate finishing meant he finished with just 1.3.

Geelong showed off the flexibility that coach Chris Scott has been working hard to create, with key defenders Tom Lonergan and Harry Taylor both spending time in the forward line, while usual forward James Podsiadly played as a key defender at times.

Lonergan made the most of his opportunities up forward, booting two goals.

The Cats’ win came with some injury concerns. Tagger Taylor Hunt was subbed out of the game with a right shoulder problem during the first quarter after copping a heavy bump from Essendon onballer Jake Melksham.

Tom Hawkins, who went into the game with a stiff back, looked well below full fitness. He struggled to run freely and found it almost impossible to jump into marking contests, although he still chipped in with two majors in a performance described by Scott as "very effective".

Midfielder James Kelly is also sure to come under scrutiny from the match review panel for a high bump on Brendon Goddard late in the third quarter.

David Zaharakis, who was tagged by Hunt during the opening stages of the game, made the most of his opponent's injury by finishing as Essendon's leading ball-winner with 31 possessions.

Zaharakis was instrumental in the Bombers' impressively manic start to the contest, gathering 13 touches in the opening quarter, but, like many of his teammates, he faded after the midpoint of the second term.

Heath Hocking was Essendon's most influential player. He limited Geelong skipper Joel Selwood to just 19 touches while gathering 19 of his own and kicking a goal.

But the Bombers' big forwards had little impact on proceedings, with Michael Hurley, Stewart Crameri and Scott Gumbleton kicking only three goals between them.

Key backman Jake Carlisle was very good against Hawkins during the first quarter, but in the end Essendon's defence, which had conceded an average of just 72 points per game during its first six matches of the season, was well beaten.

Adding to the Bombers' problems, small forward Alwyn Davey was subbed out of the game in the third quarter with a left hamstring injury.

The Cats will be aiming to continue their winning streak when they take on Collingwood in another blockbuster next Saturday night at the MCG.

In contrast, the Bombers will be confident of getting back on the winners' list when they meet the Brisbane Lions at Etihad Stadium next Saturday afternoon.
