PODSIADLY COMES OF AGE AS CATS BURY PORT BY 95 POINTS
By Anthony Jensen GEELONG treated a packed new-look Skilled Stadium to a scintillating display of football to comfortably defeat Port Adelaide by 95 points on a warm Sunday afternoon which included a third quarter that boasted 11 Geelong goals to Port's solitary major.
The victory is Geelong's 24th in a row at home which is the most ever for an AFL/VFL side. Ironically, Geelong's last home defeat was against Port Adelaide in round 21, 2007 thanks to a last minute Dominic Cassisi goal. In the VFL the Cats lost to Hawthorn affiliate Box Hill.
