GEELONG'S swingman revivalist Harry Taylor said the wisdom of Cats' goalkicking coach Blake Caracella helped him deal with his pressure set shot late in the game against Richmond on Sunday.

With his side three points behind and five minutes remaining, Taylor kicked the goal to propel the Cats to an unlikely victory.  

It was Taylor's first goal for the season and the first time he has been swung forward for the year.

"His [Caracella's] face kept popping up with his little cues for kicking goals," Taylor said.

"He is our goalkicking coach so I could see him pretty clearly and what he would be telling me to do."

Taylor said the Cats adopted a play-on mentality in the final quarter with Josh Caddy's goal within the first 25 seconds of the quarter giving them the belief they could overhaul Richmond. 

"Everyone was frustrated but we just needed something to spark us," Taylor said.

"That goal that Josh Caddy kicked early in the first quarter really got us going."

Geelong has built a reputation this season for its final quarters, having now won 17 of 20, three ahead of the next best in Hawthorn with 14.

The 45-point barrage against the Tigers was the fifth time this season the Cats have kicked 35 points or more in a final quarter.  

Taylor said it was a miracle given how the Cats had played for the first three quarters but he was happy to revel in it with his family watching from the stands as he celebrated his 200th game.

"It was a fantastic comeback. You don't get to play in many games where you come back like that," Taylor said.

"When the emotion runs out we'll be able to look at it from an analytical point of view and highlight what we need to improve on."
