DOCK­ERS DON’T MISS A BEAT

Cockburn Gazette - - UPDATE -

AN al­most full strength Fre­man­tle Dock­ers team proved too much for Rich­mond in the open­ing round of the NAB Cup.

A 14.6.90 to 4.6.30 score­line on Fri­day night’s match in Man­durah out­lined the ex­tent of the Docker’s scor­ing prow­ess, but the lo­cal team also dom­i­nated in pos­ses­sion, clear­ances and hitouts.

The Docker’s en­gine room proved too strong, with Lachie Neale and Michael Bar­low get- ting 29 and 27 touches re­spec­tively, while Matthew Pavlich showed doubters age was no bar­rier to kick­ing four goals.

Fre­man­tle will play Ade­laide in Mt Barker on Sun­day.
