Dockers fall short against Bombers

The Dockers have slumped to a three game losing run the latest a seven-point defeat by Essendon.

In a match that didn't get to any great heights only 15-goals were kicked in the 8.12.60 to 7.11.53 Bombers triumph. 

Brandon Matera was the only multiple goal scorer for Fremantle with two majors. 

Skipper Nat Fyfe finished with 24-possessions with a massive 22 of them contested possessions. 

The Dockers remain in eighth position on the AFL ladder but could be outside the top eight come the end of the round.
