Everyone this was a massive match for both of the teams if the Power won they would of gone into the top and if the Giants won they would of kept the finals chances alive.
The first Quarter started off with the Giants getting the first score of the match but it was just a behind and then port took advantage of the kick in and took the ball down the ground with Robbie Gray kick the ball in the forward to try and get the first goal of the match but it just fell short but Brad Ebert was near the goal square when Robbie kicked so he was able to pick up the ball and spin the opposition player off of him and get the goal. but that was there only goal for the quarter. An Ollie Wines Slip up when he kicked the ball to two team mates but they were out of range to mark the ball and Toby Greene was able to mark it and took advantage of this and kick it out to the wing and with Brent Daniels marking it in just his third ever AFL game and running it down the wing to the Tim Taranto the kick the Giants second goals of the match. that was pretty much it for the first quarter with Port only kicking that one goals for the quarter, and the Giants kicked a total of 4 goals to go into the second quarter.
The Second quarter pretty much started with how the first quarter finished with the Giants getting the first goal of the second quarter and kicking another two goals in that quarter to take them with a total of seven goals into the half time break. The power were able to get the ball into the attacking 50 a lot more in the second then the first but they weren’t able to take them only kicking two goals and five behinds if the Power were to take those chance they would of been in front going into the half time break I don’t think I would of like to be a Power player at the half time break because I reckon Ken would of been screaming at the and asking them what they were doing.
The Third and Fourth Quarter the Giants pretty much held on to the ball for most of those quarters with port controlling the ball in the last five to ten minutes of both of those quarters the Second half Port were able to get more goals then the giants but the giants go the ball into the attacking 50 a lot more then them the Giant were only able to kick 4 goals to ports 5 goals but they kicked a total of 7 behind to ports 5 behinds so port were to the kick straighter then the giants in the second half but were a lot less in there attacking 50 then the giants. Phil Davis said to Fox Footy after “The Match that to win at the Adelaide oval is hard and to do it twice in the same year is remarkable and we are happy with this win”.
