The loss leaves Fremantle two games outside of the top eight with just four games remaining.
A shoulder injury to Connor Blakely soured the loss. Blakely dislocated his left shoulder in the first quarter but returned to the field after club doctors popped it back into place. The 21 year old re-injured the same shoulder again in the second quarter and took no further part in the game.
