The Sydney Swans have strung their fourth win in a row, securing a 40-point victory over Fremantle at Metricon Stadium this afternoon.
Swans forward Isaac Heeney was dominant with 5 goals, including one which came after a spectacular mark over Luke Ryan.
Swans forward Lance Franklin was penalised after connecting with his left elbow to the head of Fremantle's Luke Ryan in the second quarter of the 14.14 (98) to 8.10 (58) win in Round 19.
Franklin ended the game with two goals, moving to 983 for his career as he closes in on the 1000-goal milestone.
Heeney's spectacular grab and goal sparked a three-goal run by the Swans to take a three-point lead into the half.
The Swans would go on to kick eight unanswered goals across the second and third quarters to establish a match-winning lead.
Heeney ended the game with five goals and 22 disposals in an all-action display while Luke Parker had two majors for the Swans.
Josh Kennedy was also sensational for the Swans with 34 disposals, seven tackles and seven clearances.
Fremantle's day of celebration, as veteran David Mundy made his 350th appearance, quickly turned into a horror show.
After a strong start where Justin Longmuir's team failed to really capitalise on their dominance, the Dockers finished the match without captain Nat Fyfe (shoulder) and small forward Michael Walters (hamstring).
Fyfe's right shoulder appeared to dislocate as he fought for the ball just before half-time while Walters limped off early in the third term clutching his right leg.
Heeney goes flyin’ over Ryan
The Swans were still searching for their spark halfway into the second term when the Dockers’ half-back Hayden Young went to switch the play with a long kick to Luke Ryan who was standing 30m out in front of the opposition goal. Except Isaac Heeney had given Ryan just enough space to encourage the pass from Young then easily made up the ground while the ball hung in the air. Heeney arrived in good time to fly over Ryan and claim a spectacular mark with his left shin sitting on the defender’s shoulders. Heeney’s hang time then goal seemed to inspire the Swans who then kicked two more to claim the lead before half-time then followed up with five goals to none after the main break.
