Dayne Zorko was influential in the first quarter and ended up with 26 disposals and eight tackles by the game's end.

Daniel Rich continued his solid back-half of the season by grabbing 24 touches.

Josh Walker took a game-high five contested marks and kicked a valuable goal near the end of the match which gave the Lions a glimmer of hope.
