Here's another 117 coincidenceIn mid 2005, Port Adelaide had their biggest win and biggest loss in the competition to date within three weeks - both by 117-points. Three weeks before the Power defeated the Hawks by 117-points in Adelaide, they had played West Coast at Subiaco in Round 10, with Port Adelaide leaving Perth with a 117-point thrashing from the Eagles.
Further adding to the coincidences, Port's biggest winning margin to that stage was by 112-points over the West Coast Eagles in a match played at Football Park in the final round of 2001.
