Adelaide Crows crumble in the secod half to lose Showdown XXXIV.
Port Adelaide continue to impress early in the AFL after stunning their arch-rivals the Adelaide Crows to win by nine points at AAMI Stadium.
The Crows had Port Adelaide at their mercy mid-way through the third term as they lead the Power by more than five goals.
But two majors to Justin Westoff in as many minutes triggered a remarkable turnaround by the power, as they stormed home to collect the win.
Westoff collected all four of his goals in the second half as the Power kicked nine of the last 12 of the game to finish over the top of the Crows in the 34th edition of their derby.
Travis Boak was outstanding for Port in collecting 30 disposals while also kicking 3.1 with Kane Cornes (30 disposals) and Hamish Hartlett (28).
In a losing side, Scott Thompson (28 disposals), Richard Douglas (26 and two goals) and Rory Sloane (24) were busy around the ground.
The win sees Port Adelaide climb to second on the ladder while the Crows are well off the early pace, and find themselves in 11th after securing just one win to date.
