An eight goal last quarter seals an easy 44-point victory in the AFL.
Gold Coast has produced an emphatic last quarter to beat Greater Western Sydney by 44 points at Star Track Oval in Canberra.
Gold Coast always held the upper hand on Saturday, but the Giants hung on grimly until the last quarter, when the floodgates opened as the Suns booted eight goals to four.
Charlie Dixon was brilliant for the Suns, booting six goals, as his team surged to a 21.22 (148) to 16.8 (104) win.
Both sides started neck-and-neck in the first quarter, with windy conditions making it tough for both outfits to capitalise on the scoring chances they had created.
Finishing level at the end of the first quarter, Gold coast started to take control of the game with goals to Gary Ablett, Charlie Dixon and Zac Smith saw the lead blow out to 38.
However, a late run by the Giants which saw them score three of the last four goals put them back into the contest as they trailed by 25.
Greater Western Sydney continued their momentum after the long break, and when Stephen Coniglio cut the suns’ lead back to just seven.
However, the Suns sealed the win when they kicked eight majors in the final term to run out deserving winners, the second time this season.
Despite showing improvements in their second season in the AFL, Greater Western Sydney have nothing to show for it and are win-less through the first five rounds.
And the prospect of them picking up their first victory appears several weeks away, as they face top-of-the-table Essendon, Adelaide, Hawthorn, West Coast and Carlton in the next five weeks.
Gary Ablett has been in stellar form again so far this season, check out this classy goal, one of his three from the game:
