Game four – Round 23, 2016: Hawthorn 17.10 (112) defeated Collingwood 17.9. (111)

When Collingwood hit the front deep into the final term of this final-round classic, it looked like the Hawks would be aiming for a record-equalling fourth straight flag from outside the top four. Enter unlikely hero Jack Fitzpatrick. On his Hawthorn debut, the ex-Demon launched a long bomb with two minutes remaining to tie the scores. A late behind to Paul Puopolo handed Hawthorn the win and the all-important double-chance but Fitzpatrick’s puzzled expression after his earlier heroics formed the moment that lives on.

Game three – Round eight, 2012: Port Adelaide 12.10 (82) defeated North Melbourne 9.22 (76)

The Power were staring down the barrel of a 1-7 start to 2012 when they trailed by 32 points halfway through the last quarter at home to the Kangas. But a pair of Jay Schulz goals in quick succession gave the Power a sniff against a team that was notably shaky in close matches. Paul Stewart’s mark and late running goal on the usually reliable Roo Michael Firrito in the dying moments earned the Power a memorable win.

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.
