FIVE BRISBANE GOALS IN A ROW !!
The hosts have blown this game wide open
Bailey converts the set shot from 40m out directly in front and this is all of a sudden a one-sided encounter.
The Bulldogs’ defence is under siege from the Lions’ repeat inside-50s. The Brisbane on-ball brigade dominating.
The hosts have booted nine of the last 11 goals.
FOUR BRISBANE GOALS IN A ROW!
Hipwood is taken high by Gardner in the marking contest and wins the free kick.
From 30m out on a very tight angle, Hipwood makes it look easy! He now has a game-high three goals and the Lions are looking good now.
The hosts have kicked eight of the last 10 goals.
Bulldogs fans must be wondering how their team isn’t lining up for goal 40m out. Andrews is tackled by Dunkley and throws the ball away, but the umpire waves play on. Bemusing! Making matters worse, the Lions clear the danger with a rebound-50 from Rich.
Earlier this quarter, Zorko forcefully pushed Smith into the fence and the young Bulldog face-planted the LED signage. It will be interesting to see if the Brisbane skipper comes under scrutiny. He might cop a fine for rough conduct.
THREE BRISBANE GOALS IN A FOUR MINUTES!
The Lions go bang, bang, bang and all of a sudden they have the biggest lead of the game.
Jarryd Lyons wins the centre clearance and passes it beautifully to Hipwood.
Hipwood lines up from 50m out on a tough angle, and defies his recent goalkicking woes by converting the set shot! Beautiful kick and the Lions now have three multiple goalkickers.
BACK-TO-BACK BRISBANE GOALS!
Hipwood wins the free kick for being held by Gardner in the marking contest.
Bailey takes the advantage and handballs it to McStay who dribbles it home from the pocket.
BRISBANE BACK IN FRONT!
What a cracking contest this is
Zorko chips it from the traffic to McCluggage who runs to 40m out on a tricky angle and nails another one!
He becomes the Lions’ second multiple goalkicker along with Ah Chee.
Leading disposals: Macrae 18, Neale 11, Zorko 11, Bontempelli 10, Witherden 10
