Port Adelaide V Fremantle
Fremantle have succumbed to a massive 89-point loss to the Power at Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon.
The Power stormed into the game with two quick goals and then continued to put the boot in kicking six goals before Danyle Pearce kicked the Dockers first goal. That trend continued throughout the game with the Power in charge from start to finish for their 22.13 (145) to (56) victory.

Nat Fyfe and Brad Hill tried to keep their team in it, giving their team a couple of highlights in the last term and Lachie Neale also made appearances for his 32 disposals and goal.
