West Coast were challenged by the bottom-of-the-ladder Cats, who held pace with the home side for the first three quarters and even led at the final change. The Eagles were able to steady in the last with a six-goal term, including a couple of crucial goals from an unlikely source in Kasey Green. Chad Fletcher was West Coast's best with 31 possessions and Michael Gardiner dominated the ruck in his 100th game, as 1994 premiership player Drew Banfield also celebrated his 200th.
