SPP nominated for Goal of the Year

Powell-Pepper saves the day - PTV Paddy Ryder's shot at goal falls short but Sam Powell-Pepper finishes with the goal

PORT ADELAIDE’S Sam Powell-Pepper has been nominated for the Coats Hire Goal of the Year for his crumb and kick in mid-air against Richmond on Saturday.

Powell-Pepper swooped on a Nathan Broad spoil on the goal-line, jumped and grabbed the football and before he hit the ground had slammed through the major.

Adding to the drama, the goal was sent upstairs to the decision review system but it was eventually awarded to the midfield bull, as Port extended their lead to seven points late in the second quarter.

The 21-year-old will be competing with Melbourne’s Christian Petracca and Gold Coast’s Alex Sexton for the best goal in Round 4.
