Two-time All-Australian Anne Hatchard produced a midfield masterclass as she inspired Adelaide to its win over Fremantle.

The Crows could not manage a goal in the third term of the match at Fremantle Oval, meaning they turned for home down by two points and kicking against the breeze.

But Hatchard produced a scintillating burst early in the final quarter, tallying nine possessions within the space of a few minutes to set up two quick goals for the Crows.

They proved to be the final goals of the match, with Adelaide prevailing 3.7 (25) to 2.4 (16).

The result boosted Adelaide’s win-loss record to 7-1, while Fremantle is now 6-2.

Hatchard finished with 30 disposals and eight marks in a best-afield display, while Ebony Marinoff was also damaging with 30 possessions.

Teammate Danielle Ponter starred up forward with two goals from 20 disposals.

Stephanie Cain collected a team-high 22 possessions for Fremantle, with Airlie Runnalls tallying 20 disposals and a goal.

Dockers captain Hayley Miller was restricted to 10 possessions and a goal in a quiet display.

Both sides entered the match minus key players.

Adelaide was without superstar Erin Phillips (knee), while the Dockers were missing midfield gun Kiara Bowers (knee) and forward Roxy Roux (hamstring).
