STRATHFIELDSAYE hung on just long enough to deny hard-charging Golden Square to win Saturday’s BFNL match-of-the-round by three points and re-claim top spot on the ladder.

After a dour low-scoring opening three quarters at Flight Centre Park, the last stanza was an absolute cracker.

Tom Bartholomew nailed the first two goals as the Storm eased out to a 27-point lead.

Then the Bulldogs slammed home the concluding four majors of the game to fall agonisingly short: 7.10 (52) to 7.7 (49).

It took Golden Square until the 15-minute mark of the second term to land its first goal. Paul Symons collected a Dylan Johnstone handpass inside the goal square as he slotted the Dogs’ opening major.

By then skipper Shannon Geary and Tom Dowd had nailed Storm majors. They’d landed those inside the first two minutes of the second term.

Straight after Symons had scored, Storm’s Jake Hall screwed home the goal-of-the-day from the Tannery Lane end’s pavilion flank.

Travis Baird kept Square in touch by capping off a chain of three handballs with a major as the time clock ticked down to the 41 seconds mark.

A mere two goals were landed – one to each team – in the third quarter. Defenders were clearly on top: co-coach Bryce Curnow and Sam Simmons for the Storm, with Brayden Dorrington and recruit Michael Roberts hard workers for the Dogs in their back half.

And so the stage was set for an electrifying last quarter. It didn’t disappoint.

After Bartholomew had taken his personal goal tally to three following a play-on across-the-body ripper and then a set shot from a sliding mark, Square flicked the switch.

Adam Baird speared home a long shot at the Sheepwash Creek end followed by Clayton Anderson soccering through another when a high bomb from Comanche Walls landed in the goal square.

When Travis Baird capped off a long ball from Johnstone suddenly it was an eight-point game: 7.9 to 6.7.

The Storm defence was under all sorts of pressure. Roberts sent a high kick into Square’s forward 50, Anderson ran onto the ball and eased home his second goal of the term.

With four-and-a-half minutes to go the Storm defenders took over. Curnow and his teammates chipped the ball around the midfield and back half as they clung to their three-point advantage.

They managed to keep the Square midfielders and forwards from gaining possession and were clearly relieved to hear the sound of the final siren.

Curnow said it was definitely a nerve-wracking last few minutes and reminiscent of how his players had defended against Kangaroo Flat in round seven.

“We all see how retaining possession works in AFL games, so if we can adapt our game that way it’ll obviously help us in tight situations,” he said.
