The Dockers reversed the momentum in unbelievable circumstances as they surged after quarter time to kick 10 of the next 11 goals and claim the 12.7 (79) to 11.7 (73) victory.

But it was in the last quarter when things went to a whole next level.

Fremantle kicked the opening two goals of the final quarter and looked to have the game sewn up with a 19 point lead.

But the Saints weren’t done yet as they caught Fremantle napping to draw the game level before a late goal to Lachie Schultz sealed the victory for the Dockers.

The come from behind victory is the biggest deficit overcome at quarter time since back in 2012.

“Best win I’ve seen for the year,” Gerard Healy said on Fox commentary.

“It was full of character. It’s a memorable win” Gerard Whateley said on AFL Nation.

The win bumps the Dockers up into 12th spot on the ladder for the time being with the victory becoming all the more special after they lost two players before halftime.

Defender Hayden Young went down in the opening term with an ankle injury before ruckman Sean Darcy was left concussed following a bump to the head from St Kilda’s Ben Long which could result in a two week suspension.
