Leroy Jetta kicked three goals in a losing side while Blair Bell was the only other multiple goal kicker booting two.
In Docker watch, Taylor Duman proved why he was named an emergency for Fremantle's clash collecting 28 disposals and 10 marks while Ethan Hughes continued his consistent season with 24 touches.
Peel sit in third position on the ladder alongside five other teams who have all had one win and two losses after three rounds.
