Magpies increase lead in Aussie Rules football

Magpies increase lead in Aussie Rules football

First-place Collingwood won its 19th of 20 matches this season and took a four-point lead in the Australian Football League standings by beating the Brisbane Lions 14.18 (102) to 13.6 (84).
Travis Cloke kicked five goals for the Magpies, who had to fight harder than expected against the lowly Lions at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday.
Geelong, which level on points with Collingwood going into the weekend but in second place on scoring percentage, had a bye. The Cats are the only team to have beaten Collingwood this season.
Hawthorn shored up third place with a 10.18 (78) to 8.18 (66) win over Carlton. The Hawks led by as many as 45 points in the third quarter but were put under late pressure by the Blues.
