Sydney’s Lance Franklin has produced a memorable and much needed three-goal blitz in as many minutes to become the latest man to attain the 700-goal milestone in VFL/AFL competition.
In the second quarter against his former team Hawthorn at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on Saturday, Franklin 28, became the 21st man to reach the landmark.
They were desperately needed goals too, as a shell-shocked Sydney were trailing 46-4 at the time against a ruthless Hawthorn, who blew the Swans away with their kicking efficiency and defensive pressure.
They kicked 6.1 to 0.2 in an awesome first quarter display despite the fact Sydney held a distinct early advantage in disposals, contested possessions, inside 50s and marks.
Former Hawk Franklin, who started the game on 698 goals didn’t have an attempt in the first quarter in which he accumulated four touches.
The second quarter didn’t start auspiciously for him either, as his first shot was touched by the man on the mark.
With the Swans trailing by 43 points after conceding the first seven goals, Franklin lifted his team and their crestfallen home supporters.
He kicked two set shot goals in the 18th and 19th minutes to reach the 700 mark and earn a standing ovation.
Another minute brought another Franklin goal, one on the run, and a smart piece of play from co-captain Jarrad McVeigh delivered another major to get Sydney within three goals.
However, goals to Angus Litherland – his first in the AFL – and Cyril Rioli, inside the last two minutes of the term, swelled Hawthorn’s halftime buffer to 30 points.
