Game ReviewLittle seperated the teams through a first half which provided a large advantage when kicking towards the Dight's Falls end.
The Blues appeared to have secured victory when they outscored the Pies into the breeze in the third term but were thwarted late by a goal from the Pies Guy Moore.
Remarkably, this was the third successive week where the Blues had contested matches in which the final margin was 2 points, having edged the Cats in Round 3 and succumbed to the Bulldogs in Round 4.
