Hawthorn triggered an upset 10-point win over St Kilda at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon to assert their third win of the season.
Three consecutive objectives within the remaining 4 minutes from Dylan Moore, Jacob Koschitzke and Luke Breust spurred the win, after an arm wrestle of a day. The Hawks kicked the final 5.
Scores had been stage at half-time and the Saints appeared set to place the foot down with an assault spearheaded by Max King (4 objectives), and with a 14-point lead on the final change, however the Hawks saved the battle.
“Their [St Kilda’s] warmth across the ball and their strain, we had been in a position to face up to it, [with] the work we’ve completed, and the work the gamers have completed, on studying from previous experiences and with the ability to put issues in place within the second,” mentioned Hawks coach Sam Mitchell post-match.
