Commentary

  • Q4 31:15

    FULL TIMEThe final siren sounds with Sydney putting in a solid shift tonight. Essendon kept coming at them but in the end the Swans were too good, winning by 22 points.

  • Q4 30:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle drops a mark he should have taken but recovers to take a flying shot at goal. That's the good news. The bad news is it just manages to sneak in for a behind.

  • Q4 29:15

    GOAL BOMBERSHurley juggles the mark in a move up forward and comes up with the goods. He hurries back and kicks the goal. He has had 29 possessions tonight.

  • Q4 27:20

    GOAL SWANSMcGlynn gets a well deserved second goal. Front and centre to the contest, he does the roving and quickly throws it onto his boot for maximum results.

  • Q4 25:15

    BEHIND SWANSGoodes looks to ice the cake for the Swans. His kick bounces towards goals but bounces away from the target and it's only a minor score.

  • Q4 24:05

    BEHIND SWANSTippett claims the mark but it isn't paid. He recovers to tap it onto Parker who slams his kick into the post.

  • Q4 21:55

    GOAL SWANSGoodes is held in the marking contest and he makes sure the umpire sees it. From the free kick he slots it through from 20 metres out. That's officially game over.

  • Q4 20:00

    Just the one goal in this quarter and that was scored by Essendon. It's hard to see them come back from here.

  • Q4 18:20

    Zaharakis tries to work it with the outside of his boot from 50 metres out, but Richards is there to mark it in the goal square.

  • Q4 16:00

    Essendon need to find three unanswered goals to take home the pot of gold being the four premiership points.

  • Q4 15:30

    Sydney are beginning to work the clock and are finding the passes with ease.

  • Q4 13:50

    Dempsey pushes into the 50 and takes a flying shot at goal, but he kicks it out of bounds on the full. He has made a few mistakes tonight.

  • Q4 13:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSSydney rush through another behind with the Bombers really pushing for a result here.

  • Q4 12:00

    SUBSTITUTION SWANSA famous name at Essendon in Lloyd has come on for the Swans as their substitution in place of Membrey.

  • Q4 10:55

    BEHIND SWANSDempsey fumbles and can't get the ball out of defence. Rohan steals it and snaps, but he sneaks it in for a behind.

  • Q4 09:50

    BEHIND SWANSMcVeigh runs with purpose to the edge of the 50 and kicks to Kennedy, but he can't take the mark and it's through for a behind.

  • Q4 08:45

    Essendon have plenty of time left and are a chance to take the Swans all the way and perhaps steal a cheeky win here in Sydney.

  • Q4 07:10

    GOAL BOMBERSHeppell marks 40 metres out and he sucks in a couple of deep breaths and chills out. He sends the kick on its way and it's a wonderful kick!

  • Q4 06:10

    BEHIND SWANSSydney work it straight down the other end with McGlynn looking to perform another miracle from the pocket. On this occasion it's rushed through.

  • Q4 05:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSDell'Olio with a hurried snap for goal that is off hands and through for a behind.

  • Q4 02:00

    Needless to say this so we just won't say it then. We will say something else instead. Sydney will be looking to ice the game with the first couple of goals in the final quarter.

  • Q4 00:01

    The final quarter is underway.

  • Q3 28:00

    THREE QUARTER TIMEEssendon threw the challenge out in the third quarter but Sydney rallied and hold a 20 point lead at three quarter time.

  • Q3 26:40

    BEHIND BOMBERSStanton hacks it out of mid air but he misses to the near side.

  • Q3 24:00

    SUBSTITUTION BOMBERSEssendon have activated their substitution with Dell'Olio coming on for Ambrose.

  • Q3 22:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSRyder takes another mark inside 50 and he has been prominent tonight. Looking to kick his third goal he pulls the kick badly to the left.

  • Q3 20:00

    GOAL SWANSSydney make it two in a row. McGlynn runs towards the boundary and kicks a miraculous goal! Swans lead by 22 points once again.

  • Q3 18:15

    GOAL SWANSAnd there is the ship steadying. Tippett is taken high in the tackle. This is a big kick and that's why they pay him the big bucks. He makes no mistake.

  • Q3 17:00

    You get the feeling that the Swans have weathered the storm but they are yet to confirm it on the scoreboard.

  • Q3 14:50

    Sydney have steadied after the onslaught from Essendon and are plotting their path towards that ship steadying goal.

  • Q3 12:30

    Essendon are impressing in this third quarter. Sydney are struggling to get their hands on the ball at the moment and the challenge has been thrown at them.

  • Q3 11:30

    GOAL BOMBERSCarlisle marks 15 metres out. This will be a soda, or perhaps a soft drink. Doesn't quite sound the same but it doesn't really matter as Carlisle kicks the goal.

  • Q3 10:40

    The Bombers are running with purpose and they look up to the challenge in this third quarter.

  • Q3 08:15

    GOAL BOMBERSEssendon have kicked back to back goals and business has just picked up! Howlett finds space inside 50 and marks. His shot for goal hits the spot! Essendon within 16 points.

  • Q3 06:15

    GOAL BOMBERSChapman is a determined player tonight as he negotiates his way through the middle. He kicks high to the lead of Ryder who marks it overhead and kicks a ripper from 50!

  • Q3 04:20

    Remarkably Sydney are plus 60 in the disposal count. This needs to reverse if Essendon are to take anything away from this match tonight.

  • Q3 02:00

    Luke Parker has been busy tonight and he has kept the statisticians the busiest with his 19 disposals.

  • Q3 00:01

    The third quarter is underway with the Bombers really in need of a surge in business inside their attacking fifty.

  • Q2 29:30

    HALF TIMEThat's a wrap for the first half and it's the Swans who almost seem to have this match in their grasp. They lead by 28 points at half-time and it will take Essendon's best to get back.

  • Q2 28:10

    BEHIND SWANSThe slingshot is in full force here with the kids kicking it to Tippett who marks. Tippett misses one he should have snagged and lets Essendon off the hook.

  • Q2 27:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSEssendon take it away from the middle. They don't want to dine in because they have a huge lead to bridge. Zaharakis looks to finish it off but his kick lacks the accuracy.

  • Q2 25:50

    GOAL SWANSGoodes marks in between the goal and behind post and is sent around on the angle. He sells some candy leaving Hurley flat footed and then kicks the easiest of goals.

  • Q2 23:30

    The next goal will prove to be very important in the overall context of this contest. A Swans goal will flatten Essendon, whereas an Essendon goal will give them momentum into the break.

  • Q2 21:25

    GOAL BOMBERSAmbrose takes a juggling marks 25 metres out directly in front. He goes back and kicks a badly needed goal for the Bombers.

  • Q2 20:40

    BEHIND BOMBERSGoddard tries one from distance but he misses to the left.

  • Q2 17:05

    Heath Grundy is as busy as an accountant on the 30th of June tonight. He has touched it 15 times and keeps on racking them up.

  • Q2 14:40

    Michael Jackson predicted this situation for Essendon when he released the CD titled 'Dangerous'. It needs to bridge the gap otherwise these Bombers could be down and out before the main break.

  • Q2 12:40

    GOAL SWANSTippett is held in the marking contest and he is paid the free kick 20 metres out. He goes back and kicks his first of the night. Swans lead by 29 points.

  • Q2 10:40

    BEHIND BOMBERSEssendon work it from coast to coast with Ryder getting it out the back. He takes a couple of steps and kicks for goal, but that's not a career highlight.

  • Q2 10:10

    BEHIND SWANSMcGlynn is bumped as he kicks it, but his shot misses to the left.

  • Q2 08:10

    BEHIND SWANSMalceski has the shot from just inside 50 and it's within range but his kick misses to the right.

  • Q2 06:50

    BEHIND SWANSGoodes with a difficult shot for goal kicking into the breeze. It doesn't carry and it's punched through for a behind.

  • Q2 04:30

    BEHIND SWANSA rushed behind to the Swans with the Essendon defence happy to force it through.

  • Q2 02:30

    Essendon have made a promising start to the second quarter and they really needed to.

  • Q2 00:30

    GOAL BOMBERSMyers tries one from distance and some distance it is. He sets sail from outside 50 and that kick is what is universally known as a beauty!

  • Q2 00:01

    The second quarter is underway.

  • Q1 30:55

    QUARTER TIMEIt's been all one way traffic in the first quarter with the Swans keen to avenge last week's loss to the Hawks. They are doing a good job of it to lead by 26 points.

  • Q1 30:55

    GOAL SWANSReid marks inside 50 just before the siren sounds. As cool as a cucumber Reid walks in and kicks the goal.

  • Q1 27:50

    GOAL SWANSKennedy with a difficult shot hard up against the boundary. Difficult? You have got to be kidding. That looked like a goal from the moment it left his boot!

  • Q1 26:00

    Sydney are working hard and creating a defensive structure that is very hard to penetrate. Essendon at the moment are not seeing much of their attacking 50.

  • Q1 23:40

    An interesting sequence of events here with one umpire paying Adam Goodes a mark 35 metres out only to be overruled by the other and the end result being a ball up.

  • Q1 21:40

    Jarrad McVeigh is the leading disposal gatherer at the moment with 8 disposals.

  • Q1 20:20

    BEHIND SWANSHarry Cunningham marks inside 50 as the Swans strive to get that goal back. His kick for goal will not achieve such aims as he misses to the right.

  • Q1 18:20

    GOAL BOMBERSRyder marks on the lead overhead as the Bombers break through the middle. He goes back and kicks Essendon's first goal.

  • Q1 17:05

    GOAL SWANSKennedy kicks long to the square for Goodes and Tippett. Enter Mike Pyke and he takes the mark. He goes back and takes care of business. Swans by 19 points.

  • Q1 16:00

    Essendon have enjoyed a good period of sustained possession but have not been able to reflect that on the scoreboard.

  • Q1 14:05

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle marks 45 metres out. His set shot for goal starts right and comes back, but doesn't come back enough.

  • Q1 11:40

    Both sides are still getting a feel for things tonight with turnovers quite a regular pattern early on.

  • Q1 09:20

    Nick Malceski continues his fine form with a very good start to the match. He has already touched the Sherrin 5 times tonight.

  • Q1 07:05

    GOAL SWANSWinderlich with a terrible kick out of defence that goes straight to Rohan. He marks and plays on to kick it straight over the goal umpire's hat. He did not move at all!

  • Q1 06:45

    BEHIND SWANSJack goes off the ground but it's to the wrong side of the target.

  • Q1 06:20

    The Swans may be a little more predictable tonight with the absence of Franklin.

  • Q1 04:30

    Essendon are employing some numbers behind the ball here and they look to be plus two back there at least.

  • Q1 02:40

    GOAL SWANSThe kick comes unstuck from Essendon with Jetta handballing to McVeigh who watches it sail through from 45 metres out after kicking it with the outside of his boot.

  • Q1 02:00

    BEHIND SWANSParker takes it off hands with his snap off a tight angle hitting the post.

  • Q1 00:01

    We are off and underway in Sydney.

  • Q1 00:00

    Welcome to the SCG for Sydney vs Essendon. We have a huge late withdrawal tonight with Lance Franklin out with knee soreness and replaced by Tim Membrey. The substitutes are Lloyd and Dell'Olio.

Highlights: Sydney Swans v Essendon The Swans and Bombers clash in round 19

David Zaharakis tries to wrap up Luke Parker at the SCG on Friday night

THE SYDNEY Swans have overcome Lance Franklin's absence to defeat Essendon by 22 points and reinforce their position atop the AFL ladder.

Franklin was a late withdrawal with knee soreness, but the Swans still had just enough firepower to prevail 11.13 (79) to 8.9 (57) in a largely dour, low-scoring contest at the SCG on Friday night.


The result takes the Swans to 14-4 for the year and one victory ahead of both Hawthorn and Geelong, who play the Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne respectively this weekend.

Luke Parker (who had a career-best 35 possessions), Mike Pyke and Ben McGlynn were all excellent for the home side, with Adam Goodes, Kurt Tippett and McGlynn kicking two goals apiece in front of a healthy crowd of 36,804.

The Swans travel to Port Adelaide next week before closing their home and away season against St Kilda, the Bulldogs and Richmond.

"It was good to win," Swans coach John Longmire said afterwards.

"We got off to a good start in the first quarter and thought our pressure was pretty good.

"Conditions were pretty tough, it was pretty windy, so it was about getting the result. We persisted long enough to do that."

In a year that continues to be overshadowed by the supplements scandal and uncertainty over James Hird and Mark Thompson, the Bombers never gave in and were within 15 points deep into the final term.

But they couldn't get any closer, with a late Goodes goal sealing the Swans' 13th victory from their past 14 games as they bounced back from last week's loss to the Hawks.

Jake Carlisle (11 disposals, one goal), who had been in outstanding form over the past fortnight, was well held by Heath Grundy, while at the other end Michael Hurley (29 disposals, seven marks) was a clear standout.

Patrick Ryder (15 disposals, 28 hitouts, two goals) loomed as a potential match-winner for the Bombers, particularly in the third quarter, but he faded in the final term as the Bombers had their three-game winning streak snapped.

Dyson Heppell and Zach Merrett were also influential for an Essendon side that was far from outclassed, but still finds itself in a dogfight at the bottom half of the eight ahead of next week's Friday night clash with the Tigers.

Essendon dropped to 10-8 with the loss, with Adelaide a chance to leapfrog them on the ladder if they beat West Coast at home on Saturday afternoon. 

The Swans dominated the opening exchanges and were far more potent going forward, kicking five goals to one in the first term for a healthy 26-point lead at the first change.

A strong breeze was making scoring difficult towards the Paddington end of the SCG, but the Bombers were unable to capitalise in the second quarter against a home side that wanted the ball more.

David Myers got the Bombers off to a flying start in the second term with a long-range goal in the first minute, but the Swans extended their advantage to 28 points at half time, with Goodes particularly dangerous

Whatever Bombers coach Thompson said at the main break had the desired effect, with Ryder rampant as the visitors kicked the first three goals of the quarter to close to within 10 points.

But the Swans responded, with Tippett's second goal and McGlynn's brilliant snap from an impossibly tight angle giving them back control of the contest.

From that point on the Swans were always able to keep their noses in front as the premiership favourites banked another important four points.

Thompson felt his side had been fortunate to get as close as it did by full-time.

"We got going in patches and clearly they were the better side on the night," he said after the match.

"We were lucky just to lose by the margin we did.

"But we haven't lost too much tonight. There's no shame in losing to Sydney."

Josh Kennedy was in typically prolific form for the Swans in an SCG slog. Picture: AFL Media
