AFL ROUND 18 – FREMANTLE vs. HAWTHORN

Fremantle (12th) vs. Hawthorn (13th)

Domain Stadium

Saturday, July 22, 5:40pm (AWST)

Hawthorn have overcome some minor infighting to post a crushing 52-point win over Fremantle in their AFL clash at Domain Stadium.

The Hawks made a hot start to Saturday night’s match, and booted six goals to two in the final quarter to cruise to the 15.10 (100) to 7.6 (48) win in front of a crowd of 30,818.

The most-intriguing moment of the match came on the stroke of halftime when Hawthorn teammates James Sicily and Taylor Duryea engaged in an angry exchange.

Sicily was left fuming when the umpires didn’t pay him a kicking-in-danger free after a Fremantle player soccered the ball into his head.

Duryea went over to Sicily to tell him to get his focus back on the game.
