CATS outlast impressive Giants

The newcomers from Greater Western Sydney hung tough with the defending premiers before fading out in a 65-point loss to Geelong at Kardinia Park on Saturday afternoon.

Scores were tied at 26 apiece after the first term and 45 each by the main break before the Cats opened the throttle and raced away from the Giants to record a 19.12 (126) to 9.7 (61) victory.

Fabulous Franklin bags baker's dozen

It was the Lance Franklin show in Launceston on Saturday, as the Hawthorn spearhead kicked a career-best 13 goals in the Hawks 115-point thumping of North Melbourne.

For North Melbourne it was a nightmare performance, putting further pressure on coach Brad Scott, as his team could make no impression and gave up more than a dozen goals as a result of turnovers.

Scott kept his players behind closed doors for more than half an hour after the 27.12 (174) to 9.5 (59) defeat.

Demons survive to record Bombers boilover

Melbourne produced the upset of the season, taking advantage of a wasteful Essendon to win by a goal at the MCG on Saturday night to give coach Mark Neeld the first victory of his reign.

Another loss would have given the embattled club its first 0-10 start since 1919.

But the Demons, who faced an avalanche of criticism after copping a 101-point hiding from Sydney just two weeks ago, won 8.10 (58) to 6.16 (52) in front of 42,987 fans.

Port give Carlton the Blues

Port Adelaide made a mess of pre-match predictions, winning its third game in a row with a 54-point belting of Carlton at Football Park on Saturday night.

The Power kicked five goals to three in the opening term and went on to steamroll the Blues 14.15 (99) to 6.9 (45) on a wet night in Adelaide.
