GREATEST TEAMS EVER Carlton v Essendon ... who wins the game?

Game two - Round 22, 2013: Essendon 12.10 (82) defeated Carlton 9.22 (76)

Essendon trailed by 19 points in the final quarter of this clash, which came at the end of another emotional week in a tumultuous 2013 season for the club. But three goals in five minutes quickly gave the Bombers a chance. With the scores level with 27 seconds remaining, in swooped David Zaharakis. Another late 'Zaka' shot, another late 'Zaka' goal, another dramatic Essendon win against an old rival.

Game one - Preliminary final: Western Bulldogs 13.11 (89) defeated Greater Western Sydney 12.11 (83)

What an unbelievable match. With a spot in the 2016 Grand Final at stake, nothing separated these sides with just three minutes remaining in a pulsating final term. Enter Jack Macrae. His calm set-shot put the Dogs six points clear and the rest, as they say, is history. The Dogs would snap a 62-year premiership drought the very next week.
