GEELONG CATS LEAD HAWTHORN HAWKS AT
HALF TIME IN ROUND 4 EASTER MONDAY CLASH
AFL ROUND 4 2017, HAWTHORN HAWKS V GEELONG CATS GEELONG are dominating Hawthorn though 'only' lead by 24 points at half time. The Cats dominated the first quarter but with two goals and a costly seven behinds, only lead by 7 points at quarter time with the Hawks two goals straight. The second quarter saw the Hawks themselves a bit inaccurate with just the six behinds, the Cats with three goals five. Each of Geelong's goals has come from a different player, Tom Hawkins opening the goal scoring five minutes into the game.
Harry Taylor has played up forward and while he's had his hands on it quite a bit (12 times) he has only the three behinds to his name. Usual suspect Patrick Dangerfield has had the ball 17 times while Steve Motlop leads the match total to date with Luke Hodge on 18. Sam Menegola is in good touch and the backline combination continues to grow in confidence with each game.
In the second half the Cats will want to push the lead out to 40 points as soon as they can to avoid a Hawks comeback which we've seen so often in recent years, though this is a fairly different side minus Sam Mitchell and Jordan Lewis. Hawkins will be looking to add to his goal tally as will Daniel Menzel.
