High profile forward Tom Boyd (above) booted three goals including two into the wind in the third quarter when the Bulldogs managed to give the Bombers the slip. Lin Jong (26 disposals) and Jordan Kelly (20) worked hard through the midfield while Jordan Russell (34) and Roarke Smith (21) in defence cleaned up many of the Essendon attacks.

Collingwood have continued their unbeaten run at Victoria Park with 23-point win over fellow finals contender the Casey Scorpions in round 15 of Peter Jackson VFL. Injury plagued Ben Reid played a full game booting three goals, while former Hawk, Clinton Young, sparked the Pies with two third-quarter goals as they kicked clear to win 12.11.83 to 9.6.60.

 

The win lifts Collingwood into fifth place, level with Essendon in fourth. with only percentage separating the pair. It was a hard fought win by the Pies who were missing key players in Patrick Karnezis, Brenden Abbott and Michael Still, with all three having been major goalkickers for the team this season.
