Port punishes winless Suns

PORT Adelaide gate-crashed Gold Coast Suns' home ground birthday party with a 48-point win at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

Barely 12 months after becoming the Suns' first scalp, Port ensured history did not repeat by thumping in seven unanswered goals in a stunning third quarter.

The 17.16 (118) to 10.10 (70) win in front of 12,416 fans dashed the Suns' hopes of marking the one-year milestone of their Carrara venue with a first home victory.

They looked on track by juggling the lead before a slow-starting Power grabbed a one-point half-time advantage.

Then all hell broke loose.
