After a close-range Lord snap goes OOTF in the pocket, Shuey’s long bomb to the HFF is spoiled back in for Rozee who snaps a lovely goal from just outside 50m. (Q1 6:05)
Kelly baulks away from a stoppage on the HFF and kicks short for Waterman to mark in front of Burton 35m out on a slight angle. Waterman hooks it left. (Q1 8:51)
Ginbey gives away a contact free to Lord 20m out in front, clear arm around the belly there from the undersized Eagle. Lord shanks OOTF, unfortunately. (Q1 12:06)
Ginbey beats Rioli to a ground ball on the wing then receives back for the pass inside 50 to Culley 40m out on a slight angle. Culley hooks it right. (Q1 14:33)
Culley is front and centre for a long ball to Darling 20m out, he roves and snaps the goal off the left. (Q1 16:01)
Finlayson hits Lord on the lead in front of Ginbey 30m out on a slight angle. Does the first-gamer have the on button for his radar? Called to play on… and kicks it! (Q1 18:04)
Allen boots his first goal of the day after winning a free on Aliir at the top of the square for a push. The home Power fans give the away team donuts. (Q1 20:36)
Butters passes long and hard from centre wing to Rioli leading to 40m on a slight angle, whose kick is lackadaisical and wide left. (Q1 22:41)
Waterman desperately tries to tackle Boak after Rozee handballed to him at the hotspot, Boak falls and Waterman is pinged unluckily for high contact. Boak hits the post. (Q1 26:11)
