Westgate dominated most of the play early, scoring at the 25 minute mark. Geelong got back into the game with a “chested” goal from new recruit, Berim Elmazi, on the 60 minute mark only for Westgate to take back the lead almost immediately. Shortly after Geelongs night went from bad to worse when captain, Steven Nikolovski, got sent off for persistent fouling. Elmazi suffered the same fate, receiving a red card thus reducing Geelong to 9 men. Westgate took full advantage of a depleted Geelong side, scoring a further 2 goals late in the game.
