Several Kimberley-born AFL players will feature in the finals after their teams secured spots in the top eight following the last round of the home-and-away season. Broome’s Jack Martin and Halls Creek’s Ash Johnson went head to head as Carlton took on Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday with the Blues’ season on the line and the Magpies looking to finish in the top four. Johnson continued to show off his skills in front of goals, kicking two for Collingwood over the course of the match from his position at half position while Martin scored a single behind and gathered 11 disposals at full forward for the Blues. Collingwood dominated the first half before the Blues recovered to lead by as much as 25 points and it looked like they were headed for victory and a spot in the top eight. But then the unexpected happened as Collingwood kicked the final five goals of the game to snatch victory by just one point, 11.9 (75) to 10.14 (74). The Fremantle Dockers overcame the Greater Western Sydney Giants at Manuka Oval on Saturday morning. Broome product Bailey Banfield jumped on to the field after a late change meant injured teammate Griffin Logue did not play and managed to slot two behinds, one in the first term and one in the last. The Dockers were on the back foot in the first half but managed to pull through in the second half to beat the Giants and temporarily secure themselves a spot in the top four, 13.11 (89) to 10.9 (69), before Collingwood’s win saw them drop to fifth. The Gold Coast Suns destroyed the North Melbourne Kangaroos at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Halls Creek’s Jy Farrar didn’t need to work too hard this round as the Suns kept the ball in their forward line most of the match, kicking a huge 16 goals to record a comfortable 67-point win for the Suns 16.18 (114) to 6.11 (47). The West Coast Eagles ended their season with another devastating loss to the Geelong Cats at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Halls Creek’s Sam Petrevski-Seton managed 16 disposals in the centre but despite his and the Eagles best efforts, the Cats ran away with the match from the first siren, winning by 85 points, 19.17 (131) to 7.4 (46). There was no sign of Derby’s Callum Ah Chee for the Brisbane Lions in their 58-point loss to the Melbourne Demons on Friday night at the Gabba, 8.9 (57) to 18.7 (115). Halls Creek’s Shane McAdam was also out due to injury this round, missing out on the Adelaide Crows derby loss to Port Adelaide Power on Saturday afternoon, 16.15 (111) to 7.13 (55).
