Eleven minutes after the third installment, fans asked: "West Coast on how much?"
Cue a stunning, unexpected 45-minute dominance period that gave rise to Collingwood & # 39; s most important win from 2019 to date.
In one of the games of the season, the Eksters conquered an 18-point margin to overthrow the highly rated Eagles with one point, 11.12 (78) to 12.5 (77), in a brave and brilliant performance.

Over signs of the past two weeks, Collingwood & # 39; s season threatened to derail after loss to North Melbourne and Hawthorn. And then defender Darcy Moore lost to a hamstring injury in the opening period
Instead, the Pies continued under enormous pressure and ensured an astonishing victory in front of a parochial West Coast home crowd to revive their top two expectations.
& # 39; LET & # 39; S F *** ING GOOO LIVING LARGE & # 39 ;: Lion is crazy about his brother's crazy streak
12 OBJECTIVES, DIRECT KITCHEN, STARS SHINE: 35 minutes & # 39; absolute perfection & # 39;
& # 39; WHIL … & # 39 ;: Ironic turn in Pies & # 39;
After Elliot Yeo placed the Eagles in front with three goals, the midfield of Magpies "finally went into gear," said prime ship coach Paul Roos.
These were some of the key numbers, thanks to Champion Data, from the 11-minute sign of the third term to the full-time siren that emphasized the dominance of the Pies.
Assets held: Collingwood +24 (73-49)
Ground-ball gets: Collingwood +16 (52-36)
Within 50s: Collingwood +18 (28-10)
Forward-half intercepted: Collingwood +17 (20-3)
score: Collingwood +19 (2.8-0.1)
The quarter-final goals against Brody Mihocek and Jordan De Goey brought the Magpies back in one point and Collingwood came in the lead with a series of supporters.
West Coast Forward Jack Darling had the opportunity to play his lead with two minutes, but his 50m set shot from the boundary line didn't record a score.
Triple premiership Lion Jonathan Brown called it a "huge reversal" by Collingwood.
"They are a different team. They have life again," Brown told Fox Footy.
"The Pies are then back in town. That is a huge confidence builder given the injury list they also have."
Brisbane legend Alastair Lynch said it was Collingwood's midfield brigade led by Captain Scott Pendlebury (32 sales), Adam Treloar (39), Steele Sidebottom (33) and Jack Crisp (30), who made the comeback made.
"The mid-times probably broke even with the West Coast Eagles in the first half. But they absolutely pulverized West Coast in the second half," Lynch said.
"They were able to turn the West Coast ball when they kicked out of their defensive 50 and kept on applying pressure.
"In the end, West Coast was brave, but they admitted it."
Roos added: "Bucks will show the last 45 minutes. He will get everything out of that period … and say & # 39; guys, this is what we are capable of & # 39 ;.
"Around the ball they were hard, they were cheeky, they were physical – and they win the territory game and they win the game."
Mihocek started four goals and took 10 points in a striking performance, with five of his brands being challenged.
Mason Cox kicked three goals, and could have had more if not for some simple missed points.
The ruck battle between Nic Naitanui and Brodie Grundy created an intriguing look.
Both players had their moments, with early dominant Naitanui, and Grundy influential late.
Naitanui ended with 14 sales, 28 hitouts and 11 free plays, while Grundy had 22 possessions, 31 hitouts and six clearings.
Moore injured his left hamstring, while Jamie Cripps damaged a groin while releasing a pressure.
The injury to Moore is particularly worrying given his recent history of soft tissue problems.
Magpies skipper Scott Pendlebury (finger) and James Aish (shoulder) finished the game with injuries.
Eagles goalsneak Jarrod Cameron started four first half goals, but he was stopped in the second half by rookie John Noble.
The opening period included six major changes because both sides emphasized attacks.
Cameron started three goals for the period, while Jack Darling took two courtesy of strengths.
But the Magpies had enough firepower of their own, with Cox and Mihocek each launching two targets.
Cameron started his fourth goal midway through the second run to help West Coast open a 15-point lead.
Collingwood managed to hold its ground in the third quarter when West Coast threatened to blow up the game.
And when Mihocek and De Goey launched a goal within a minute of each other in the final run, the margin was only one point, but the Eksters had all the momentum.
