The match was moments old when the first of two melees took place, with both clubs looking to assert their authority.

Ben Howlett would kick the opening goal, before both clubs kicked long range goals, with the Dons taking an eight point lead into the first break.

Another melee occurred at the start of the second, which would see Sam Perkusich sent from the field, and also reported by a goal umpire for striking.  The disruption favoured the Tigers, with Lachlan Riley kicking a subsequent goal before Blaine Johnson kicked to goals to have the visitors twelve points in front.  Meanwhile, after kicking six goals last week, Jace Cormack was getting plenty of the ball yet again.  A long range goal to Cooper Clarke-Dehring, returned the margin to six points, before Lachlan Riley goaled again from the pocket with a left foot snap.

After half time the Tigers dominated proceedings, kicking seven goals to three, with Richard Bourne kicking a fantastic goal to extend the margin.  Bourne and Cormack both goaled in the final quarter before Blaine Johnson finished off a good day, kicking his fourth.
