Mark Blicavs takes a mark against Fremantle at Domain Stadium in R17, 2016

A PATRICK Dangerfield masterclass has helped Geelong hold off a plucky Fremantle to remain in the hunt for a top-four finish. 

Dangerfield kicked four goals and had 31 disposals to help the Cats avoid slumping to a third straight defeat with an 11.12 (78) to 9.7 (61) win at Domain Stadium on Friday night.

The Cats appeared in control at three-quarter time despite only leading by 14 points, but they had to survive a final-quarter surge from the Dockers. The home side had 16 inside 50s to eight in the final term but squandered its chances, kicking 2.4 to the Cats' 3.1 to fall 17 points short.
