When was the last time that a team scored 0.0.0 at quarter time and still won the game? I can only imagine that on most occassions it would have been due to a force 4 gale blowing straight down the ground which was not the case last night.

(I also thought the subject line was incredibly clever .... until I imaginged Basil saying it with a smug grin. Now I feel dirty)

So Freo is the only side to pull off this feat since we joined the competition, and we've done it twice! Glass definitely half full.

So what are the stats for sides held scoreless in the 1st quarter and losing the game? and where do we rank in those stats?

Yes, I am a lazy bastard, or maybe I work too hard to get into "Footystats" in a big way. C'mon Gumby, give us something.
