GEELONG Falcons have snatched a double-chance after an impressive 36-point win over second-placed Dandenong Stingrays at Simonds Stadium.

The Falcons, who needed the four points to jump into fourth spot after Sandringham upset Eastern Ranges on Saturday, produced arguably their best defensive effort of the season in the 10.9 (69) to 3.15 (33) victory.

Geelong restricted the Stingrays to just one goal in the first half, laying the foundation for the win.

Charlie Curnow kicked three goals and Harry Kol and Joel Bennett two apiece.

Kol, Bennett, Will Sexton and Rhys Mathieson were among the best places for the Falcons, who will play North Ballarat in a qualifying final.

Meanwhile, Western Jets have avoided the wooden-spoon with a nail-biting nine-point win over neighbours Calder Cannons at RAMS Arena.

The Jets trailed by five points at half time, but turned the game on its head with a 4.6 to 1.2 third quarter.

Calder threw everything at Torin Baker’s men in the last quarter, but could only manage an inaccurate 2.8 from 10 scoring shots.

Brayden Monk, Cameron Rayner, James Harrison and Oscar Junker each kicked two goals for the Jets.

Rayner was among the best along with Mitch Norton.
