McDonald-Tipungwuti takes a bounce on the wing and releases Langford who kicks it deep into attack where Stewart takes the grab,

The siren sounds and from 25m out on a slight angle, Stewart splits the big sticks – that’s Essendon’s first goal in 44 minutes of playing time.

It’s been 38 minutes of playing time since Essendon kicked their last goal, which came on the quarter-time siren courtesy of Stringer.

The match is in a bit of a lull at the moment, still no goals this quarter…

The first score of the second half is a missed Stringer set shot from 50m out directly in front.

The scoreboard is now reflecting Melbourne’s dominance. The Demons are leading the disposals 166-147, clearances 12-7, marks 65-38, inside 50s 22-21, contested possessions 48-45, free kicks 7-3, hitouts 11-8 and scoring shots 12-4.
