AFL round 11 live updates: Port Adelaide Power kick clear again of Richmond Tigers in see-sawing, finals-like contest


Latest updates

Dixon delight

How about this six-pointer from Dixon in the third quarter?

4Q 4min, PA 89 RICH 72

THREE POWER GOALS IN A ROW IN FOUR MINUTES!!

Rockliff wins the free kick and then receives back-to-back 50m penalties!! Firstly for being hit high by Martin and then Caddy for not getting out of the protected zone!

The former Lion is brought from behind the centre circle to the goal square and boots the easiest goal of his career!

And Richmond coach Damien Hardwick is absolutely furious! He threatens to throw his headset against the wall, and rightfully so!

BACK-TO-BACK POWER GOALS

Houston crashes the pack, collects his own crumbs and his quick checkside punt from the pocket spins straight through the big sticks!

The Power have started this quarter brilliantly and are leading the disposals 12-3 so far.

4Q 0min, PA 77 RICH 72

POWER BACK IN FRONT!

Butters intercepts the Balta handball in Richmond’s defence, breaks the Vlastuin tackle and handballs it to Gray who runs into the open goal inside 15 seconds of the restart!

That ends a run of four consecutive Richmond goals and Gray becomes Port Adelaide’s leading goalkicker with three.

The rain is now tumbling down at Adelaide Oval.

3QT, PA 71 RICH 72

The Power have enjoyed so much of the play, but they haven’t been able to finish it off in front of goal and could only manage 2.5 in that third term.

They now trail by one point, but are still dominating the disposals 232-187, clearances 30-18, inside 50s 36-22, contested possessions 106-83, free kicks 13-8

They’re also leading the marks 41-39, hitouts 27-26 and scoring shots 21-17.

Richmond have been ice cold in attack with 11.6 from just 22 forward entries.

3Q 22min, PA 70 RICH 72

FOUR RICHMOND GOALS IN A ROW!

The Tigers have withstood another Power onslaught to take the lead!

Hartlett’s hurried dribbler from defence goes only as far as McIntosh who quickly centres it and finds Stack!

From 20m out directly in front, Stack splits the big sticks and the Tigers are back in front after trailing by 26 points at one stage.

And again, a missed set shot down the other (this time from Woodcock) is punished by the Tigers.

3Q 18min, PA 69 RICH 66

THREE RICHMOND GOALS IN A ROW!

The momentum swings in this game have been huge!

Lynch centres it from the boundary line to Chol who takes the strong mark against Lienert!

From 20m out directly in front, Chol becomes Richmond’s third multiple goalkicker along with Riewoldt (three) and Aarts!
