Alex Keath enjoyed a win in his debut for Adelaide, with the Crows taking out a 21-point victory against Geelong in a high pressure match at Adelaide Oval.

The Shepparton product held strong in defence, gaining three marks and six disposals as he successfully completed his transfer from cricket back to the football field.

Keath relished the victory, being sprayed with the customary Gatorade shower during the team song as the Crows continue to hold top spot on the AFL ladder.

Collingwood’s Jamie Elliott sunk the goal which put the Pies into the lead against West Coast in a thrilling eight-point win at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

With the Magpies trailing the Eagles, the Euroa export kicked a set shot to send the black and white army into a frenzy.

It was Elliott’s third straight goal for the day as Alex Fasolo also converted truly in the dying minutes to increase the margin.

Steele Sidebottom captained the Pies with Scott Pendlebury injured, and the Tallygaroopna product stood up to the increased responsibility.

Among the best players on the field, Sidebottom gathered 20 disposals in a blistering display of leadership.

Echuca’s Ollie Wines racked up 23 touches in another impressive game for the season, splitting his possessions with 11 kicks and 12 handballs.

Wines gathered eight contested disposals during the match as Katamatite’s Tom Clurey, Rochester’s Joe Atley and Shepparton Swans product Jarman Impey were all solid in the Power’s loss to Melbourne.

Neither Benalla’s Tom Rockliff or Seymour’s Josh Schache produced their best, but Brisbane still found a way to secure a fourth win of the season against Carlton.

At the Gabba on Sunday, the Lions secured a 30-point victory, holding on despite a late push from the Blues.

Brisbane got up by as much as 56 points in the third quarter before the Blues fought back.
