St Kilda have ended their season on a high after knocking off Fremantle by 58-points in Hobart on Sunday afternoon.

With the Hobart sun beating down, the Dockers turned up the heat after half-time, making the Saints work hard for every possession.
But they withstood the pressure, booting four goals in the third quarter to Fremantle's one to take a 33-point lead into the final term.
