Dockers smash Swans to set up Hawks clash

The Freemantle Dockers delighted the 43,249 sellout crowd at Perth’s Patersons Stadium on Saturday night by producing some exquisite pressure football to shoot down the Sydney Swans in their AFL prelimary final.

The 14.15 (99) to 11.8 (74) win booked Freemantle’s place in next Saturday’s AFL grand final against Hawthorn, who recorded their first victory over Geelong Cats since 2008 with a thrilling 14.18 (102) to 15.7 (97) scoreline at the MCG on Friday.

Geelong’s Travis Varcoe had a chance to tie the game with seconds on the clock, but his effort from 30 metres out narrowly missed.
