Port Adelaide have beaten North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium to regain their momentum in season 2018.

This was a game devoid of twists and turns with the Power dominating in the first term and having the measure of the home team for much of the day.

North tried hard and their pressure in the attacking area was impressive yet the Power were able to repel the Kangaroos’ forays into the forward fifty easier than the home side would have liked.

Sam Gray who kicked four goals and Chad Wingard were influential up front and North didn’t have players doing something similar in their attacking zone.

The Kangaroos are Ben Brown focused, for good reason, yet the Power defence held him very well with the majority of his goals coming in the final term.

North were not embarrassed and will take a lot from the contest with Port restating their claims on a top four spot with an excellent performance.

Final score
North Melbourne 10.9.69
Port Adelaide 15.12.102
