Fremantle played the game on their terms

From the first quarter, the Dockers were already on the front foot, with a 15-7 start only eight minutes into the first quarter.

At the back end of the first quarter, the Dockers hit their straps and didn’t give the Suns a sniff, with the Sun’s only scoring eight points going into half-time.

The Dockers’ defence was outstanding, keeping young gun Kalinda Howarth goalless, and continuing to stifle her influence for most of the game.

By the end of the third quarter, the Dockers were up by 40 points. They didn’t stop there, finishing the game with an outstanding final term to eventually win by 70 points. No doubt this will help them storm into the preliminary final against the Dees with the confidence they’ll need.
