West Coast had a handy lead early but squandered their chances in the second quarter to trail at half-time. Collingwood then kicked three quick goals at the start of the second half to take full control, and led by as much as 35 in the final quarter before a couple of late Ben McKinley goals improved the scoreboard a little.
