Both teams came into the game undefeated, but only Fitzroy came out of it the same way they went in, after handing the Western Wolves their first loss of the season.
That did not look like it was going to be the case early on, as the Wolves came out looking the stronger team, and they took a two goal to nil lead into the half-time break.
Fitzroy came out rejuvenated in the second half, scoring seven goals to two in the half to overpower a Wolves side that did not seem to have the answers for the first time this season.
The Wolves were dealt a blow mid-way into the second half when star anchor Tiema Couliabaly was forced off with an ankle injury.
