Magpies, Cats in thrilling AFL wins

7 april 2013 12:12

The Blues led for nearly the entire first three quarters, before Nathan Buckley's side booted seven goals to three in an exciting final term to clinch the 17.15 (117) to 15.10 (100) victory in front of almost 85,000 fans at the MCG.

For three quarters Carlton attacked the contest with vigour, tackled hard, earned more ball in the middle of the ground and found able goalkickers up forward to make up for the absence of Jarrad Waite and Eddie Betts.

But that was all missing in the final stanza as a Magpies side led by Dane Swan and youngster Jamie Elliot found their best form to find the lead and maintain their unbeaten status in 2013 with a second consecutive victory.

Earlier, Geelong produced their second remarkable comeback in as many weeks after fighting back from 41 points down in the second quarter to beat North Melbourne by four points at Etihad Stadium.

Michael Firrito was the villain for the Kangaroos after he booted the ball away when Jimmy Bartel received a free kick for in-the-back 30 metres out from goal with 25 seconds left in the match.

Firrito's actions led the umpire to award Bartel a 50m penalty which brought the star Cat to the goal line. Bartel converted from point-blank range to put Geelong back in front as the Cats held on for a 16.16 (112) to 17.6 (108) win.

In Sunday's final game, Hawthorn recorded a brave 50-point victory against fellow premiership contenders West Coast at Patersons Stadium.

The Hawks, beaten in a typically physical encounter only six days earlier against Geelong, blew the Eagles out of the water early before keeping their opponents at arm's length in the 23.10 (148) to 15.8 (98) win.
