The Fremantle Dockers and 3 goal games

As of tonight, through their first 599 games, the Fremantle Dockers have now kicked 3 goals in a game exactly 3 times.

The common trend in those 3 games?

They all occurred against Geelong.

Round 20, 2004 at Kardinia Park – 3.7-25 to 9.21-75, which marked the first time Freo hadn’t kicked at least 5 goals in a game

Round 21, 2018 at Kardinia Park – 3.7-25 to 24.14-158, a game in which Fremantle LED AT QUARTER TIME, only to concede the final 23 goals of the game and suffer the heaviest defeat in their history

And tonight at Optus Stadium – 3.13-31, although this was the odd game out, in that it didn’t occur at Kardinia Park

On that note, the margin tonight was 69 points…

Geelong have held the Dockers to three out of their four lowest scores in club history, although none of them are the record low score, which is the infamous 1.7-13 against Adelaide in Round 15 of 2009.
