27-point loss to Adelaide the one that got away for West Coast

No Kennedy, no Darling, no LeCras โ€“ no worriesโ€ฆ or so it seemed when West Coast led by 27 points during time-on of the third quarter at Adelaide Oval on Saturday. Enter Taylor Walker.

The powerful Crows captain had been well held by the Eaglesโ€™ Mr Fix-It Elliot Yeo for most of the match.But he gave his side a sniff with a scrappy goal off the deck in the shadows of three-quarter time.Walker marked on the lead in front of Will Schofield and converted a bomb from 60m to get the ball rolling in the final term.

He kicked another after a towering pack mark moments later to level the scores.It brought the 44,771-strong crowd to life and Adelaide ran all over the top of West Coast, kicking 6.6 to 2.0 in the final term to post a gritty 12.16 (88) to 12.6 (78) win that could be the shot in the arm their season so desperately needed.
