FULL TIME: Adelaide 6.7 (43) Port Adelaide 4.3 (27)

There it is! The Crows take out the mini-Showdown and each team today wins a game. Seemed like the Power were just too tired to keep up the good form of their first game, and turnovers and sloppy skills took a toll. The Power did their best to stick in it though, and were still a chance late into that game. Adelaide looked much better than in its first game, and having the break in between probably helped them get over the line.

Adelaide 6.7 (43) Port Adelaide 4.3 (27)

Goal Adelaide! There's the sealer. Just seconds left on the clock as an exhausted Douglas sends a long ball home for a goal.

Adelaide 5.7 (37) Port Adelaide 4.3 (27)

Crows have possession now with just over a minute to go. Looks like they will hang on, though a supergoal to Port would make things interesting.

goal

And they do! Goal to Port Adelaide through Ah Chee, who was nicely positioned in the goal sqaure. Ball spilled out the back of the pack and Ah Chee makes the Crows pay.

Adelaide 5.7 (37) Port Adelaide 3.3 (21)

With three minutes left, Port Adelaide need to get moving if they are to have any chance.

goal

Adelaide 5.7 (37) Port Adelaide 3.3 (21)

Goal Port! Bad turnover by Adelaide heading back towards goal. Monfries picked up the spilled ball and bounced it through nicely. Six minutes to go - plenty of time left for Port if they can string a couple together.

AFL behind

Adelaide 5.7 (37) Port Adelaide 2.3 (15)

Behind Adelaide. Jenkins is everywhere in this half. He's marked it again after some quick handballs in the midfield left Port Adelaide to stand and watch. Pity he can't finish off on this occasion, though the shot did not look to be a difficult one.

goal

Adelaide 5.6 (36) Port Adelaide 2.3 (15)

Goal Adelaide - it's all happening now. Mighty kick from outside 50 by Henderson, but the man on the mark was inside the arc, so just 6 points for that one.

goal

Adelaide 4.5 (29) Port Adelaide 2.3 (15)

Sorry, just eating my words here - Port Adelaide has just torn through the centre of the ground to go coast-to-coast for a nice goal. O'Shea the scorer at point-blank range. Power still in it.

AFL behind

Adelaide 4.6 (30) Port Adelaide 1.3 (9)

Another behind to Adelaide, this time rushed through off hands, Port Adelaide has really dropped away here.

AFL behind

Adelaide 4.5 (29) Port Adelaide 1.3 (9)

Huge grab by Jenkins! McKay sent in a high floater and Jenkins came from the deep to take a nice grab over two Port Adelaide defenders. He goes back and takes the shot on a very slight angle, but the kick is a poor one. Would have been nice to see him kick a goal after such a good mark.

AFL behind

Adelaide 4.4 (28) Port Adelaide 1.3 (9)

Behind Adelaide. After that first miss by Port it has been all Crows. McIntyre has an ambitious snap from the pocket but the kick is no good.

goal

Adelaide 4.3 (27) Port Adelaide 1.3 (9)

Goal Adelaide! Horrible, horrible turnover in the middle of the ground by Port Adelaide. The Crows have taken full advantage, banging the ball in long where Jenkins got a boot to the bouncing ball. Nice goal for the Crows. Port will be disappointed.

Adelaide 3.3 (21) Port Adelaide 1.3 (9)

Second half has begun and Port has the first chance. It is yet another poster! Not the start they would have been hoping for, the Power.

Adelaide 3.3 (21) Port Adelaide 1.2 (8)

INJURY UPDATE: Brenton Sanderson has told Fox Footy that Brodie Smith has busted his collarbone. He says it looks like a 6-8 week injury.

Scott Watters has spoken about the heat at his post-match press conference: "You have to take a close look at the heat policy."

"At the end of the day, when you're playing in that sort of heat, it's testing, especially for the younger players."

He said the only concession his team had was two extra water carriers.

HALF TIME: Adelaide 3.3 (21) Port Adelaide 1.2 (8)

Adelaide takes the lead at half time in the mini-Showdown. The Crows were clearly the fresher team, as you would expect. But Port Adelaide fought back to stay in the contest in the second part of that half. Much tighter game than the first two, should be an interesting second half.

goal

Adelaide 3.3 (21) Port Adelaide 1.2 (8)

Crows win a strange free - awarded for a shepherd in the ruck, when the Crows didn't seem to have a ruckman in the contest. Lyons took the free and kicked the goal. Adelaide won't say no to that one.
