Instead the Brisbane Lions and Tipperary’s Orla O’Dwyer were left celebrating after the Round 7 clash as they claimed a 35-32 win at Whitten Oval.

The result leaves Collingwood, Brisbane and Fremantle all with 6-1 win-loss records at the top of the table with just two rounds of the regular season left to play.

O’Dwyer had 11 disposals and scored one behind during the game for Brisbane.

Sheridan had got Collingwood off to a great start with the opening goal of the game and was on the mark again in the final quarter as they chased down the Lions.
