SCOTT Pendlebury kicked four goals, including the one that sealed victory, as Collingwood triumphed by two goals over Geelong in their Friday night blockbuster at the MCG.

In a match played in front of 75,650 fans at the MCG, last year's runners-up Collingwood led by 17 points at three-quarter time and slowed to almost a walk but held on to win 14.12 (96) to 11.18 (84).

Both sides kicked four goals in a tense final term.

With scores level and less than two minutes remaining, Collingwood's Alex Fasolo marked on the wing and was handed a 50-metre penalty after he shaped to play on and was tackled by Josh Hunt.

"I knew Josh Hunt grabbed me and I just milked [the penalty] for all it was worth ... I hope it was there," Fasolo laughingly told Grandstand.
