David Zaharakis talks about the Dons emotionally charged comeback on Saturday night.

DZ Dons vs. Blues

A goal to David Zaharakis in the dying seconds has given Essendon a stunning and emotional six-point win over a wasteful Carlton at the MCG on Saturday night.

Following yet another tumultuous week as a resolution to the supplements saga draws near, the Bombers put their off-field woes aside to turn a 20-point third quarter deficit into a 12.10 (82) to 9.22 (76) victory in front of 53,630 fans.

That Zaharakis kicked the winning goal was fitting, given it was he who sparked the late fightback with a superb 11-disposal final quarter.

The win snapped a dismal four-game losing streak for James Hird’s men, which had seen them tumble from second to seventh on the ladder.

“It was a terrific win,” Hird said.
