Blast from the past
Ablett, who, no doubt, is resting an aching body this morning, would realise that it is not always the freak marks, kicks and goals that win games. Wanganeen’s spectacular lunge in the final quarter to pluck a mark rated with any of Ablett’s 14. Ablett was brilliant throughout the day, but the timing and importance of Wanganeen’s mark was crucial.
Little wonder that Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy charged on to the ground at the final siren to congratulate his players. They had gone beyond the call of duty, particularly in the final 15 minutes when the Cats looked as though they had the game in their keeping.
