Crows hold off Lions in an entertaining game.

The Adelaide Crows held off a fast finishing Brisbane side by 5 points at the Gabba, Adelaide Crows 13.14.93 d Brisbane Lions 13.10.88 .

In what was a highly entertaining game the Adelaide Crows were able to get the 4 points over the in form Brisbane Lions.

The Lions lead the game at the first break but that was the last time they would lead at a break. The Crows got the first goal of the game through Bryce Gibbs which was his only goal of the game. The teams then traded goals before the Lions broke out to a 9 point lead before the end of the quarter. A goal with 7 seconds left in the first to Hugh Greenwood cut the lead to 3 at the first break.

The 2nd quarter started off with a bang through Greenwood who kicked 2 goals and what was 3 consecutive to give the Crows back the lead, another flurry of goals from the Lions though gave them back the lead at the midway point. Adelaide then broke the shackles and scored 4 goals to 0 and took back the lead in what would be for good.

Brisbane started the third quarter well through a Cameron Rayner goal but that would be their one and only goal for the quarter as the Crows continued to pepper their goals, inaccuracy hurt the crows at times but they were doing enough to keep the Lions at bay. The Crows lost Josh Doedee to concussion after a hard hit that was not called a free kick. Another uncalled high tackle saw Lachlan Murphy also leave the ground with potential concussion.

The Lions came out into the 4th quarter knowing they had at 2 extra players on the bench and tried their hardest to take the lead, each time they tried though Adelaide either had an answer for it or the Lions committed a costly turnover preventing any real chance. Despite kicking just 1 goal to the Lions 4 in the term the Crows walked away with the win and the much needed 4 points.

The Crows now have a home match against the Demons next week while the Lions will face the Bombers in Melbourne.

Free kick to Hugh Greenwood for holding the ball.

He misses the shot but should have done enough to give the crows the win.

McInerney paid a mark just in front of the goal square. Goal Lions.

Probably didn’t deserve the mark considering it was not called by the closest umpire to the ball.

Some ugly football from both sides right now. Brisbane have had some costly turnovers in their forward 50 though.

End of the third quarter.

Brisbane Lions 9.7.61 Adelaide Crows 12.11.83

Adelaide had another strong quarter as Brisbane struggled to get any meaningful shots on goal in the quarter.

Adealide will have some depth issues going into the final quarter as they are at least one man down and another is being looked at under the concussion protocol.

Hugh Greenwood has been impressive all game kicking his 4th for the game in that term.

Adelaide leading by 22 points.
