Giants smash Freo by 92 points in AFL

A six-goal haul from Jonathon Patton has helped Greater Western Sydney to a club-record 92-point home win over Fremantle and kept their hopes of a spot in the AFL top four alive.

The Giants kicked 13 straight goals and 16 out of 17 to take control of the game at Spotless Stadium on Saturday, and win 19.15 (129) to 5.7 (370 after the Dockers led by seven points in the first quarter.

The second half was a disaster for Freo, who were outscored 11.8 to 0.2.

Key forward Patton, who played just 33 games in his first four seasons but has missed just one this year, doubled his previous best of three goals in a game.

He kicked two in each of the last three quarters and boosted his tally for the year to 29, which beat his previous season best of 25 in 2014.

The winning margin was one point better than the Giants’ previous best of 91 at the same venue against Gold Coast earlier this season.

It was a handy percentage booster for GWS, while Freo slumped to their biggest loss of the season and their seventh straight defeat.

Shane Yarran kicked three well-executed goals in the first quarter for Freo, but touched the ball only four times after the first term.
