Freo farewell season with loss to Bombers

Season 2017 is over for Fremantle after a 15-point loss to Essendon at Etihad with the win securing a finals spot for the Bombers.

The Fremantle Dockers came off consecutive 104-point losses but were a different side this week, kicking five goals in a row in the third term to get within eight-points. Essendon fought back for the 16.11 (107) to 14.8 (92).

“There’s definitely signs there for our members and supporters to be excited for next year,” Hayden Ballantyne told us after the game.

“Harley Bennell, gee whizz he was exciting at the end, I thought we had them on toast,” Ross Lyon said after the game.
