It was as if two games were played tonight

Round 5’s Friday night match saw the Gold Coast Suns come to the plate swinging against Geelong.

As they ramped up the pressure in the first 30 minutes, the Cats struggled to transition the ball out of their back half, and the Suns were able to capitalise, taking an early lead.

Coming back from the main break, the tide had changed completely in favour of the Cats, who were clearly thirsty to make it two wins in a row after their defeat of the Tigers last week.

It was another classic AFLW arm wrestle that saw Geelong pull out in front in the dying moments of the third term thanks to a dynamite goal from Richelle ‘Rocky’ Cranston.

This was the spark the Cats needed and by the fourth quarter, it was as though a whole new game was being played; the early domination by the Suns nothing but a distant memory as the Cats brought home a resounding win that will move them to fourth place in Conference A.
