Live Commentary

Full Time

Brisbane: 19.9.123
Port Adelaide: 11.9.75

The Lions move on to a home preliminary final with their 12th win at the Gabba in as many games. Port Adelaide now need to take the long road to the grand final, hosting GWS in a semi-final next week.

0:00 - Neale finds space through the centre of the field and has time to step through and chip the ball to Cameron on the lead. The Lions forward can't finish the job, but the siren sounds.

17:52 - Berry looked to inflict more late damage but his set shot is punched over the line after fading across the goal-face.

16:51 - Goal No.5 for Joe, who marks the ball 35m from goal on a tough angle. Goes back and absolutely slots it to cap off a solid evening in front of goal.

13:57 - Another for the Power through Powell-Pepper, who crumbs the ball and snaps truly on his right foot from 20m out.

13:31 - The Power get one back late through Powell-Pepper, but all the juice from this one has been squeezed.

7:22 - Lyons has an immediate impact, booting a goal within a minute of coming onto the field as the tactical sub.

SUB MADE: Jarryd Lyons replaced Deven Robertson for the Lions.

7:07 - Zorko uses the outside of his right foot to centre the ball to the top of the goalsquare, with Fletcher taking a nice grab before playing on and booting his third for the night.

6:00 - Trent McKenzie has made his way back on the field after an earlier worrying knee issue.

5:23 - Rayner marks near the right forward pocket 30m from goal looking for his fourth of the night. His shot starts right and comes closer to goal, but not enough. Behind.

3:09 - Zac Bailey records the first score of the final term after a quiet few minutes, with a snap attempt from 30m out fall to the near side on the left.

Three-Quarter Time

Brisbane: 16.5.101
Port Adelaide: 9.9.63

19:34 - Two in 20 seconds for Brisbane as Daniher boots his fourth. Can't mark Neale's clearance but out-bodies Aliir before shaking and baking by defenders before snapping it from 20m out.

19:16 - Lions more than five goals up after some more Fletcher brilliance, with the young Lion taking an intercept and kickstarting a counterattack for the Lions. Hands it over to Cameron, who goes long to Hipwood in attack. The Brisbane forward indecisively plays on and kicks the Lions further ahead.

16:56 - Daniher kicks his third after a lace kick from McCluggage hits the tall Lion's chest 40m from goal on a minor angle. Lions lead by 27.

15:15 - McCarthy slots home another for the Lions from the boundary line with a nice bending snap from the left pocket off a set-shot.

13:50 - A pair of injury concerns for the Power right after their sub change, with Trent McKenzie limping to the bench with a suspected knee injury, while Dylan Williams' night is over with a hamstring complaint.

SUB MADE: Darcy Byrne-Jones is replaced by Travis Boak for the Power

12:04- Marshall again unmarked inside 50. He goes back and hands it off to Rozee who sets sail for goal from range. The ball falls short but in the hands of Ollie Lord, who quickly turns and kicks his fourth goal from a metre out.

9:06 - A clearing handball from Powell-Pepper in attack finds Byrne-Jones in space 45m from goal. The defender-turned-forward check-sides his kick and it sails through the big sticks nicely. Lions' lead cut back to 22.

8:20 - A long kick forward from Rayner is spoiled by Ah Chee, but Daniher is there to take the ball and runs into goal to blast the Sherring deep into the stands.

7:40 - Marshall finally gets another one on the board through a near-open mark right at the hot spot. The Lions' backline was lacking and the Power get one back at a much-needed venture.

6:31 - ANOTHER FOR CAMERON! The Lions star gets on the end of a McCarthy handball out the back after the ball made its way over the head of the tall forwards, making it two in a flash for the small forward.

6:18 - Charlie Cameron gets on the right side and over the back of a forward 50 entry against Burton. The milestone man nails his 45m set shot and gives the Lions a 22-point buffer.

5:37 - A long kick to the square sees Daniher rewarded with a free kick after being wrestled by Aliir. The ball spills from the halted contest and Fletcher sticks out a boot to kick his second thanks to paid advantage.

2:50 - Hipwood handed a difficult chance in the pocket, shooting from the boundary line on a near-90-degree angle. His kick looks close but goes down as a behind on the far side.

0:24 - The perfect start for the Power, with the ball falling into the lap of Willie Rioli from a long spoil, with the small forward bending through a nice snap on the run.

Half Time

Brisbane: 8.4. 52
Port Adelaide: 5.6.36

18:47 - The ball rolls out to Zorko from McCluagge, with the former captain all by himself in Brisbane's front third. He takes possession and off one step nails a bending right-foot snap.

16:37 - McKenzie is pinged for a throw right near the Lions' goal, with McCluggage winning the kick and booting his side's next goal. Lions by 10.

15:40 - Marshall shanks another after winning a holding the ball free kick 30m from goal. Doesn't even register a score, with his kick going OOTF across the face.

14:23 - Rayner slots home another off his left boot after breaking slapping away his opponent and kicking truly from close to 25m out.

12:51 - Rozee dances at the top of the 50m arc before setting his sights on goal, launching a huge kick toward the line before it's blocked through in the square by Powell-Pepper. Port in front.

11:51 - Another for the Power, with Todd Marshall unmarked in the right forward pocket. He steps around and bends it through the middle to have his side within a kick of the Lions.

11:00 - Daniher almost had the instant reply to Lord's goal, with a snap from the middle of the Lions' forward 50 missing to the right.

10:45 - Three for Lord, who is leading this Port Adelaide forward line with some much-needed accuracy. His set shot from close range after a pinpoint pass from Rozee narrows the lead to nine.

8:37 - An immediate reply through the centre clearance for the Lions, with Rayner running toward goal from 50m out and delivering.

8:15 - Lord doubles up with a nice goal from 20m out after some brute force from Horne-Francis and pressure from Rioli gave him an opportunity deep in attack.

7:36 - Jeremy Finlayson is the latest to miss a shot on goal for the Power, skewing his set shot from 35-40m out on a small angle to the right.

3:51 - Powell-Peepper is the latest that can't take his chance for the Power, missing a set shot from the right-pocket to the near side.

2:04 - A shanked snap toward goal from Fletcher luckily falls to Daniher, who can shoot from 20m out on a 45-degree angle. The Lions spearhead makes no mistake and gets the first of the quarter.

Quarter Time 

Brisbane: 3.3.21
Port Adelaide: 1.4.10

18:15 - Some strong pressure from the Power on Wilmot forced the young Lion to incorrectly dispose of the ball in a dangerous spot. The Power ruckman's shot starts and stays right for a behind.

16:55 - Lincoln McCarthy manages to outmark Scott Lycett in his side's attacking 50, with the Lions livewire unable to kick accurately, recording another behind for his team.

15:41 - The Power offer a quick reply, with Ollie Lord booting his side's first of the night with a nice snap shot after crumbing a failed mark attempt.

15:22 - From close to 50m out, Cam Rayner takes his time from a set shot and beautifully curls one through the middle of the big sticks.

14:01 - Bailey squares a pass to the hot spit from the boundary, with Cameron and Fletcher flying for the same ball only for the latter to come away with a good grab. Fletcher goes back and slots his first AFL finals major.

11:20 - Rozee's high ball into attack is set to land between three Lions defenders, only for Harris Andrews to concede a holding the man free kick against Marshall. The Power forward hasn't brought his shooting boots, missing to the right. Lions by 5.

9:18 - McCluggage dances around his opponent atop the arc and drills one to Hipwood who's 15m closer. Hipwood can't kick accurately again, this time missing to the right.

7:07 - Despite being second in line, Marshall takes a grab over Payne 25m out from goal. The reliable shooter shanks his kick to the left and fails to even register a score.

6:16 - Zac Bailey sets the bar high early with a miraculous goal from the boundary. He gathered the ball off the turf, fended off Bergman, shrugged any lasting contact and stepped inside to snap truly from 30m out.

3:42 - Daniher marks the ball on the half-forward flanks before reading the play. His kick heads toward the top of the goal square where Eric Hipwood launches to take a contested grab. From 15m out on a small angle he stuffs his set shot to the left. Scores level again.

1:10 - An unmarked Jed McEntee gets the first chance on goal but fails to capitalise from 40m out directly in front, missing to the right-hand side to give his side an early lead.
