Lewis stars in Hawks’ AFL win over Crows

Mitch Lewis has kicked an equal career-high five goals to help Hawthorn register a comfortable 32-point AFL win over Adelaide.

The Hawks welcomed back captain Ben McEvoy from a long-term neck injury as they triumphed 13.8 (86) to 8.6 (54) at Marvel Stadium on Sunday in a match between two sides who won’t play finals.

The result snapped a five-match losing streak for Hawthorn, who have drawn level with the Crows on five wins for the season.

Lewis was held goalless for the first time this year in the Hawks’ defeat to GWS in round 16 and responded in stunning fashion, putting Adelaide to the sword with five first-half goals.

Three came in the opening term as the Hawks laid the platform for the victory by opening up a 31-point lead by the first change.

The buffer grew to 38 points and was cut back to 20 during the final term but the Crows were always kept at bay.
