Highlights: Hawthorn v Essendon The Hawks and Bombers clash in round 20

THERE wasn't a line-in-the-sand moment, but Hawthorn might have drawn a line through Essendon's finals chances with a four-point victory at the MCG on Saturday.

A seesawing battle with violent momentum changes stuck in the Hawks' favour just long enough for them to deny the Bombers' last-gasp fightback.

HAWKS HOLD ON Full match coverage and stats

But ultimately it was sixth-gamer James Worpel's clutch goal in the final minute – after keeping his feet in a contest with dual All Australian Michael Hurley – that proved the difference.

Travis Colyer responded quickly with a long-range major with barely 10 seconds on the clock that cut the deficit to four points again, only for Hawthorn to win the resultant clearance.

WATCH The thrilling final two minutes

It could have been so different for Worpel, who was dubiously caught holding the ball shortly before his sealer, as part of a sequence that resulted in the second of three straight Essendon goals.

Liam Shiels had won a free kick for a tackle on Bomber David Zaharakis, with Worpel initially taking the advantage then opting not to – but the umpire believed his change of heart came too late.

Alastair Clarkson's Hawks suddenly sit comfortably inside the top eight, with the 16.11 (107) to 16.7 (103) triumph in front of 68,857 baying fans placing them in the race for the top four.

"We worked our way back from tough positions on at least two, possibly three occasions throughout the course of the game, which is fantastic for the resilience of this group," Clarkson said.

"It's particularly pleasing that we've got some leaders who can correct the manner in which the game's being played.

"We've also got some young players who understand that just because you're down by two or three goals, the game's not shot for you."

The Bombers now must win all of their final three matches and rely on other results if they expect to be part of the September action.

It was their sixth defeat in seven starts at the home of Australian football in 2018, whereas Hawthorn improved to 6-2.

GODDARD'S COSTLY BLUNDER Five talking points

Worpel was the hero, but the brilliant Jack Gunston (24 disposals, eight marks and five goals) was central to every other Hawks uprising.

Gunston provided what seemed one of the final daggers when he steered through his fifth goal after clutching a third mark inside 50 to send Hawthorn a game-high 21 points clear in the fourth term.

Only minutes earlier he smashed through his fourth with a toe poke on the goalline.

Gunston was also there when the Hawks needed an early spark, after Alastair Clarkson's men conceded the game's first three goals.

His incredible awareness and skill to maneuver a kick over his left shoulder to Ricky Henderson set up Hawthorn's first goal and ignited the brown and gold challenge.

There will also be further discussion about Tom Mitchell's grasp on the Brownlow Medal, with the gluttonous ball-winner racking up 29 of his 43 touches in a magnificent opening half.

Mitchell rounded out his afternoon with 13 clearances and seven inside 50s, opposed predominantly by injury-hampered Essendon skipper Dyson Heppell, whose disposal let him down.

The 25-year-old has won 40 or more possessions in four straight matches.

Ben Stratton (11 marks) was a tower of strength down back in another reminder of his value to this Hawks outfit, while Jaeger O'Meara (30, seven clearances) provided Mitchell with his greatest midfield ally.

Unheralded quartet Henderson, Harry Morrison, Blake Hardwick and reborn defender Teia Miles also made telling contributions.

The Bombers' brave bid to rescue a season that looked as good as over at 2-6 through eight rounds is back on life support.

A disappointed John Worsfold rued his side's inability to match Hawthorn in the clinches, with the Hawks dominating contested ball (160-131).

"What we learned from today is we got beaten in the contest, so we need to get better at that. (Improving in that area) will be our focus," Worsfold told reporters.

"There are a lot of things we've been working on that have been improving, so we'll keep attacking that side of our game, but today we were just off the boil against Hawthorn in the contested possession.

"We have to look at why that was and what we can learn from it and how we can get better, because we have been pretty good at it over the last few weeks."

Zach Merrett (42, nine clearances, five inside 50s) gave his all and went almost possession for possession with Mitchell from the get-go.

Cale Hooker (21, 13 marks), like Stratton on the other side, played the role of goalkeeper for Essendon and repeatedly cut off Hawthorn attacks with his aerial prowess.

Beyond that pair, little men Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti and Mark Baguley had some great moments, especially in the third quarter.

Jake Stringer was also excellent before an ankle injury curtailed him late in the third term and left him powerless to impact the contest.

MEDICAL ROOM 
Hawthorn: Blake Hardwick came off second best when he initiated contact with Orazio Fantasia in the opening term and hurt his right shoulder, but he played out the match. Jaeger O'Meara was on the end of a massive Aaron Francis bump in the dying stages.

Essendon: The Bombers elected not to risk Matt Dea after he sustained concussion in last week's win over Sydney when he landed on the back of his head from a marking contest. Matt Guelfi (illness) was also a late withdrawal. Jake Stringer hurt his left ankle in the third term in a marking contest with Jarman Impey and came from the field shortly after – punching the bench in disgust. He tried valiantly to play on, but was clearly hindered. 

NEXT UP
Essendon simply must sweep aside St Kilda under Etihad Stadium's Friday night lights next week, while the Hawks have another Saturday afternoon blockbuster at the MCG against Geelong.
