Eagles soar late

The West Coast Eagles have won their fifth game straight mounting a huge comeback against the Geelong Cats to run out 9 point victors.

Despite the Eagles registering the first goal of the night, the Cats surged ahead through Zach Tuohy and Tom Hawkins with two goals apiece.

Eagles debutant Harry Edwards had a rough night unable to play out the game after a heavy knock. Geelong’s Charlie Constable’s night also ending after colliding with Liam Duggan.

The stage was set for a huge final quarter when Brendon Ah Chee scored in the dying moments of the third quarter, the Eagles making the most of the momentum in the final term.

Spearhead Josh Kennedy led the charge with his fourth and final goal sealing the deal for the Eagles and also surging into the lead of the Coleman medal race.


The Cats will now face North Melbourne at the Gabba on Wednesday evening, while the Eagles will enjoy a mid-week bye in round 10 before hosting Carlton at Perth Stadium next Sunday afternoon.
