West Coast enjoyed a 26 point win in front of home crowd and stunned Sydney Swans, and hopes for Swan are dangling in the air as they lost all four matches of AFL, 4 rounds.

 

In a match played with a finals-like fierceness around the ball, West Coast fought hard to grab the victory. It was a low scoring match and we can say a ferocious battle against two rivals.

Sydney held Eagles down until last quarter and kept the pressure on. But Eagles managed to fight back and keep the match going until they hold the game in their hands. And they finally broke away to secure a 13.13 (91) to 10.5 (65) victory.

 

Team Eagles opened up a four-goal lead during the third quarter and despite aggressive and desperate Swans in the way, they kept the flow going. And scored 18 points lead into the final change.

But with their season seemingly on the line, the Swans threw everything at West Coast in the last stanza, with goals to Will Hayward and Jake Lloyd closing the gap to one straight kick as anxiety swept through Domain Stadium
