West Coast forward Imahra Cameron has produced a stunning second quarter to lead her side to a crushing 39-point AFLW win over Geelong in Perth.
- Cameron kicked three goals in the second quarter of the Eagles’ win
- It is the Eagles’ second victory of the season
- The Cats did not register a goal until late in the third quarter
Cameron booted three goals in the space of six minutes during a second-quarter blitz to set up the 8.5 (53) to 2.2 (14) triumph.
The result left Geelong winless after seven matches, while the Eagles now have two victories to their name.
Cameron finished with three goals from six disposals, while Irish sisters Grace Kelly and Niamh Kelly kicked two goals apiece and created numerous other attacking forays.
Grace Kelly limped off with what looked like a groin injury after booting her second goal of the match in the final quarter.
Geelong was best served by Amy McDonald, with the star midfielder tallying 24 possessions, nine clearances and a goal.
Eagles skipper Emma Swanson faces a nervous wait for her heavy shepherd in the dying minutes that sent Georgie Rankin crashing to the turf.
Rankin lay dazed on the ground for more than a minute before being helped off.
The Eagles dominated the opening term, but their wayward kicking meant they came away with just four behinds to their name.
Two of those were touched just before the line, while they had another two shots that did not even register a score.
Cameron turned the match on its head in the second quarter with a series of dazzling moments.
She booted her first goal courtesy of a mark at the top of the goal square, while her second came when she ran on to a loose ball and snapped truly from 35 metres out.
The destruction was complete when she took a big pack mark and duly converted from 30 metres out, with West Coast heading to half-time with a dominant 28-1 buffer.
Geelong’s first goal of the match did not come until the dying seconds of the third quarter, when McDonald twisted and turned out of trouble to kick a spectacular goal.
But the score was already 40-1 when she kicked that goal, with the match out of reach.
