Fremantle defeat Collingwood in front of almost 42,000 at Optus Stadium

The first game of footy at the stadium.

SUPERB games from reigning best and fairest winner Dana Hooker and defender Ebony Antonio have led Fremantle to a ground christening 13-point win in the AFLW over Collingwood at Optus Stadium.

In front of a record crowd of 41,975, the Dockers overcame a sluggish start to dominate the middle stages of the game and then held on in the sapping heat late for the 6.4 (40) to 4.3 (27) win.

Hooker topped 20 possessions, 14 won in contests with seven tackles and two brilliant goals.

Antonio played with dash and poise in defence for 15 touches and Lisa Webb capped a brilliant debut with 17 possessions including 11 in a dynamic first half.

Lara Filocamo, Melissa Caulfield (two goals), Kara Donnellan and Hayley Miller were other strong contributors.
