WEST COAST 18.12.120
Norm Smith Medal: Josh Kennedy (West Coast)
A case of the yips and some weariness will cost Hawthorn in this year’s Grand Final.
West Coast will score four of the first five goals, including one from Kennedy, and lead by 20 points at quarter time. The game will remain steady for the second quarter, but Hawthorn will hit the lead in the third, before West Coast plunges it back to a 10 point lead at 3 quarter time (2 late goals from Kennedy). Hawthorn will have plenty of chances at goal in the last, but will miss most of them, and Kennedy will kick a late goal to seal the deal for West Coast.
