The West Coast Eagles got back on the winners' list against Geelong, using a scintillating first half to fuel a 13-point victory.

We dissect the key statistics from the match.

51…the Eagles’ score in the first half. It was the third-highest first half score from the Eagles this season and set up the win.

127…Champion Data Ranking Points for Dom Sheed. The 22-year-old led West Coast in that category and was influential all night.

11, 9…first quarter disposals and total score involvements for Sam Mitchell. The veteran was cool, calm and collected with the footy, delivering precise, quick-fire hand passes all night.

7, 6…Nathan Vardy’s tackle and clearance count. The former Cat put on a show against his old firm, using his athleticism to impact the contest around the ground.

13…contested possessions for Andrew Gaff. That statistic represented the fourth-highest in Gaff’s career.

59%, 19…Patrick Dangerfield’s disposal efficiency and Joel Selwood’s disposal count. Eagles Elliot Yeo and Mark Hutchings were admirable in their efforts to curb the influence of the Cats’ superstar duo.

26, 12…Matt Priddis’ pressure acts and tackles. The 2014 Brownlow Medalist set the tone for his side, as West Coast played with a newfound sense of aggressiveness.

57%, 19…the Eagles’ time in forward half percentage and tackles inside 50. Adam Simpson’s men were able to lock the ball in their attacking zone and control the flow of the game.

10…intercepts from skipper Shannon Hurn. West Coast’s leader was his usual stern self in defence, chopping off numerous Geelong attacking chains.

85%…Lewis Jetta’s disposal efficiency. The Bunbury product's purple patch of form continued, as he delivered some exquisite passes.
