Blog log from R18 of 2018: Carlton vs Hawthorn

Puopolo on the burst slaps the footy over the top of Jones on the wing, grabs the one-two with Gunston, and kicks the running goal from 40m. Hawks on the board. (Q1 10:20)
Roughead gives to Breust who makes it two in a minute for Hawthorn on the run. Jones gives away a free after the kick but it’s a goal anyway. (Q1 11:36)
Worpel lowers his eyes and hits Schoenmakers on the lead with a simple kick. From just inside 50, Ryan makes it 3 in a row for Hawthorn. On top early. (Q1 13:48)
Jones’ panic kick lands in Hawthorn laps. Henderson gives to Miles who slots the goal from inside the 50 arc on the run. (Q1 17:03)
Hardwick, Mitchell, Worpel, and then landing in the arms of Gunston. From on the 50 at a 45 angle, it’s an OOF shank. (Q1 23:18)
19 seconds is all it takes for the Hawks to get Q2 underway. Mitchell and Breust combine, with Gunston kicking the goal on the run from 20. (Q2 0:19)
Simpson is called to play on in the forward pocket after marking a wayward Wright snap. On his right boot (!), Kade snaps the goal! (Q2 2:37)

Wright earns a HTB free kick inside his attacking 50. From 45 on a decent angle, his shot is left and stays left. (Q2 7:57)
Schoenmakers the benefactor of a 50m encroachment penalty. From about 55, he launches the shot into the post. (Q2 14:59)

Isaac Smith pokes the inside 50 to Breust who has the chance to slot his fourth for the day. That’s exactly what he does. Minimal angle, 40m out. (Q3 5:59)
Harry McKay earns the free kick for marking infringement. His set shot from just inside the 50 is awful. Mimicking Marchbank before him, OOF. (Q3 7:15)
Second chance for McKay from a similar spot. This time at least he troubles the scorers for a behind. (Q3 7:57)
Hawthorn go coast to coast with Burton finding Smith who marks in front of Shaw with relative ease. Isaac hits the post. (Q3 9:09)
It’s yin and yang with Weitering’s OOF kick-out, followed by Henderson’s dead-eye boundary line goal. (Q3 10:50)

Roughead launches a shot from downtown, but again it misses. Very inaccurate quarter so far. (Q3 15:35)
Charlie Curnow’s quick snap in the pocket just misses to the near side. Blues can’t quite get that second goal despite chances. (Q3 17:05)
Here comes Carlton’s second goal through Matthew Wright. After a good mark, Brand hits him high for a 50m penalty. Easiest of goals. (Q3 18:35)

Mitchell continues to rack it up and it not getting anywhere near the attention he deserves. His shot from 50 is wide. (Q3 22:07)

Pickett shows sublime pace as he takes the game on in the corridor. Isolated at FF on Frawley, Cripps takes the one handed mark. His shot from 25 with minimal angle is a goal! (Q4 14:22)
Weitering too slow or Poppy too fast. Whichever way you look at it, Poppy shoots from the pocket and goals beautifully. (Q4 16:45)
Ed Curnow fights hard in the hot spot for his team. It pops up to Kennedy who kicks a quick goal from the square! (Q4 18:33)

Polson runs into the Mitchell brick wall. To top off an almost certain 3-vote game, Titch goals! (Q4 30:05)
It’s a nail in the coffin with Breust kicking his 5th of the day. Margin out to 73 points and the Hawks fans are laughing. (Q4 32:14)
The siren will buzz before the Ed Curnow kick. From 40 with significant angle, it hits the post. GAME OVER. HAWKS WIN. (Q4 33:28)
