A wasteful West Coast failed to take advantage of their first-half domination over the Dockers and paid the price, with three quick Fremantle goals early in the final quarter wresting away the lead. The Eagles had chances to close the gap but continued to put shots wide, and lost a derby for the fourth straight time. In his 50th game, Matt Priddis was West Coast's best with 26 touches and 8 tackles.

From the papers[]

The West Australian[]

"On Saturday, the Dockers defence was under siege in the first half but Duffield, along with Luke McPharlin, Steven Dodd, Roger Hayden and Chris Tarrant did as much as they could as West Coast went on a second-term shooting spree at home.

Fortunately for the Dockers, the safest place on the ground was in the seats directly behind the Eagles goals because West Coast butchered their chances and ended up blowing the game.

The term of missed opportunities came to a head midway through the quarter when the Eagles had the ball bottled up deep in their attack but a series of overhead snaps, soccers and attempts at goals came up short.

West Coast had as much urgency as a bloke rushing his pregnant wife to hospital, but none of the delivery."[1]
