    Match preview:

    The Brisbane Lions host the Fremantle Dockers on Saturday afternoon at the South Pine Sports Complex, and on the teams’ recent form it should be a tight contest. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 4:35pm AEDT.

    Both teams are coming off wins in Round 3 and another win here will cement their place at the top of the ladder.

    Last weekend, Brisbane settled after a low-scoring wrestle with Carlton in the first half, to come away 22 point victors. A three-goal last quarter set up the percentage-boosting win.

    Meanwhile, the Dockers had a hard-fought five-point win against competition favourites, Melbourne, last Sunday.

    However, with only a six-day break and cross-country travel, the Dockers will struggle to find the energy to match Brisbane’s midfield run.

    The two sides last played in Round 2 of the inaugural AFLW season, with Brisbane thirteen-point victors in the west.

    Both teams had NAB Rising Star nominees in Round 3, the Lions’ Sophie Conway and Dockers’ Emily McGuire getting the nod.

    However, Conway will miss this clash with Fremantle, due to a minor shin injury sustained against Carlton, Gabby Collingwood returns to the side in her place.

    Fremantle’s Emily McGuire will look to build on her strong debut up forward, which featured two snapped goals at critical times.

    Despite two consecutive wins, albeit at home, a short turn-around and cross-country travel will make it difficult for this Dockers outfit to find the energy to run out another win.

    It should be a tight contest, but the Brisbane Lions will finish strong and take the win.

    Lions by 10 points

      Match Report: Brisbane Lions win in an AFLW wet weather slog

      The Brisbane Lions have taken a 7 point win over the Fremantle Dockers in very wet conditions at the South Pine Sports Complex.

      Brisbane took a 5 point lead into the final quarter and scored first, to stretch their lead to 11 points. In a game where goals were hard to come by, the match looked all but over.

      However, Fremantle kept coming and scored their second goal of the game through a snap by Ashlee Atkins.

      With only 3 minutes to go, the ball headed towards Brisbane’s forward 50 once again. Kaitlyn Ashmore marked and attempted a right-foot banana with less than a minute left on the clock. It was too tight and only scored a behind, but it was an important point that sealed the match.

      Jess Wuetschner led the way for Brisbane today with 18 disposals and 2 goals, while Kate Lutkins (18 disposals and 3 tackles) stayed composed in defence throughout the match.

      Fremantle had 10 inside 50s to Brisbane’s 1 in the first quarter, but only entered their forward 50 another 12 times for the remainder of the day.

      Despite this early press forward by Fremantle, they could only score 1 behind and did not make the most of their opportunities.

      After that first quarter, the momentum swung and Brisbane looked the more composed outfit in very wet conditions.

      The Lions’ season is well and truly alive; they sit on 12 points, just behind the Western Bulldogs on percentage.

      Next week the Dockers’ return home to Fremantle Oval to take on the GWS Giants, while Brisbane will head to Casey Fields to play the Demons.

      It will be another must win for the Lions.

      Fourth quarter underway

      Stanton was an injury concern at the end of that third quarter with a hyperextended knee. She’s been assessed and is back out on the ground with it strapped.

      Will Brisbane hold on to their 5 point lead? or will Fremantle replicate their steal against Melbourne last week, with a late goal and take the win?

      Three quarter time

      Fremantle only down by 5 points after a late goal by Barr in the third quarter.

      Big last quarter coming up. Goals have been hard to come by, so both teams must make the most of their opportunities in the last.

      Brisbane: 2.2.14
      Fremantle: 1.3.9
