Dockers outplayed at their own game as clash turns into battle of defences.
The Geelong Cats have earned their 11th win of the AFL season after a dominant second half against the Fremantle Dockers saw them run out 41-point winners.
Fremantle continue to have their finals credentials question having beaten just two top eight side so far this season.
And those queries seemed to be justified after they were thumped by the Cats 11.19 (85) to 7.2 (44) with the game all but over as a contest early in the final quarter.
Fremantle were missed several of their big names in attack, but they were outmatched by the home side.
Hayden Ballantyne was kept to eight possessions, Chris Mayne just 12 and their recently scything midfield momentum was totally scuppered by the disciplined Cats who completely shut down Nathan Fyfe and Danyle Pearce after halftime.
The only winner for Freo was the man whose style has long been despised by Cats fans – Ryan Crowley keeping Joel Selwood to an unusually low 13 touches.
Taylor Hunt, in his 50th AFL match, kept the dangerous Stephen Hill to 13 touches and managed to boot a goal himself to cap his milestone celebrations.
