Mitchell stars as Hawks soar
HAWTHORN have crashed Scott Pendlebury’s 250th AFL game, downing a depleted Collingwood by 24 points at the MCG.
The Hawks trailed by two points at three- quarter time on Sunday but rallied in the final term to claim an 18.10 ( 118) to 14.10 ( 94) victory. Tom Mitchell was again a thorn in the Magpies’ side, racking up 35 disposals and booting two clutch fourth- quarter goals to seal the Hawks’ victory. The Pies trailed by a goal at halftime before snatching back the lead in the third quarter.
But the final term belonged to a fast finishing Hawthorn side.
The 13th- placed Hawks remain in the finals hunt after backing up their upset victory over Adelaide last week.
