Hawthorn has kept its faint finals hopes alive with a routine 31-point win over Fremantle in Launceston.
A week on from amassing 2.19 (31) in the Western derby, Fremantle looked like dishing up something similar to a UTAS Stadium crowd of 13,006 as the Hawks kicked the game's first five goals.
It took a huge Nat Fyfe contested mark 17 minutes into the second term for the Dockers to register their first major, and the Brownlow Medallist followed it up with two more before half time.
The Dockers wrestled the deficit back to one point midway through the third term before the Hawks kicked away through two quickfire goals from emerging forward Mitch Lewis.
The margin hovered at the three-goal mark for much of the last before Chad Wingard slotted his second tough set shot, allowing the Hawks to run out 12.12 (84) to 8.5 (53) winners.
The match sealed Hawthorn's first successive wins of the season, and Fremantle's 10th unsuccessful meeting with the Hawks in Launceston.
