Magpies ride blistering opening to dominant win


//

Collingwood has reaffirmed its premiership credentials by riding a blistering first quarter to a dominant win over Port Adelaide.

With the Power coming into the game in red-hot form, the Magpies were scintillating from the opening bounce before steadying to run away 15. 18. (108) to 10. 9. (69) winners at Marvel Stadium.

Second-year forward Jaidyn Stephenson was electric all night after kicking three of his four goals in the opening stanza, while skipper Scott Pendlebury and star midfielder Adam Treloar continued their strong seasons.

Port Adelaide was hoping to give former captain Travis Boak a milestone win in his 250th game, but the milestone man proved to be the lone hand for the Power on a disappointing night.

Despite Collingwood’s seven unanswered goals in the opening term, the Power dominated the second quarter and a Connor Rozee goal to open the third quarter cut the lead to just three goals, before the Magpies regained the ascendancy.

Taylor Adams

Unfortunately for the Magpies, the one sour note was a serious groin injury to midfield star Taylor Adams.

Adams was attempting to break away from a centre bounce before pulling up and immediately feeling for his adductor.

After the receiving treatment and getting strapped, Adams eventually iced and forced to sit out the remainder of the match.

With the Magpies missing American big man Mason Cox through an ankle injury, the side will be wary of losing Adams for an extended period.
