Tyrone's Conor McKenna turns on the afterburners for brilliant Aussie Rules goal

McKenna and Essendon control their own destiny in the AFL finals race.

TYRONE’S CONOR MCKENNA produced one of the highlights as Essendon picked up a crucial win in the race for the AFL finals.

McKenna showed a serious turn of foot to accelerate away from his marker, bouncing the ball four times on the run before converting.

Essendon ran out 90-57 winners against Gold Coast, knowing that a win next week against Fremantle would likely secure their place in the top eight and the end-of-season playoffs.

Elsewhere on Saturday, the Carlton Blues – featuring Ciaran ‘Casey’ Byrne of Louth – beat Conor Glass’s Hawthorn to end the latter’s playoff hopes.
