Essendon kicked 5.4 to 6.2 after half time, but a win was beyond reach.
“In that first quarter I thought the players threw everything we had at Sydney,” Worsfold said.
“They withstood that and went in 1.3 (Essendon) to 3.2 (Sydney) at quarter time, so we’d had the same number of shots at goal, we were just accuracy out of being equal.
“Then in that second quarter we couldn’t slow them down at all and that was disappointing that at no point during the quarter did it look like the players got together to say ‘let’s just close this down as much as we can and halt them’.
“We addressed that as a group at half time and the players responded pretty strongly as a group after that and took the game up to Sydney, but obviously the damage was done.”
