ADE­LAIDE 20.23 (143) FRE­MAN­TLE 6.7 (43)

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

Fyfe in an en­gross­ing per­sonal duel yet Freo’s Brown­low medal­list col­lected 25 dis­pos­als and kicked a goal.

The Dock­ers, who host Colling­wood and then travel to Bris­bane be­fore their bye, were crushed by Ade­laide’s mid­field – broth­ers Matt and Brad Crouch amassed 65 dis­pos­als be­tween them and Sloane had 30 and booted two goals.

The Crows’ back­line was stingy, with Jake Lever, Brodie Smith and Rory Laird out­stand­ing, and ruck­man Sam Ja­cobs made the most of Aaron Sandi­lands’ in­jury-en­forced ab­sence.

The com­pe­ti­tion pace­set­ters, who travel to Gee­long then host St Kilda be­fore a bye, broke the 100-point mile­stone mid­way through the third quar­ter to leave the Dock­ers with six wins and four losses.

Apart from Fyfe’s feats, the spark of Lachie Weller (30 dis­pos­als, two goals) and Con­nor Blakely’s 28 touches there was lit­tle to like for Fre­man­tle.
