Brisbane has scored an almighty upset, beating the Hawks by 33 points.
The Lions broke the game open with a six-goal third term, before running home with the only four goals of the final term.
Matthew Lloyd was full of praise for the young Lions.
“This is a win off the top shelf,” he said.

Hawthorn lead by 11 points at the main break.
Tom Mitchell is causing all sorts of headaches for the Lions, already racking up 29 touches.
Matthew Lloyd said the Lions really have to address the issue.
“He’s clearly the best player on the ground,” Lloydy said.

Luke Hodge is out of the clash with his old side.
Hodge took a knock to his calf earlier in the week.
Cedric Cox comes in.
Hawthorn will line up as selected.
Hawthorn has slowly worked its way back into the top eight.
The Hawks have won four of their last five to slip quietly into eighth place.
But they know better than most not to take the Lions lightly; Brisbane smashed the Hawks when they met in Round 9.
Many of us have long suspected the Lions were better than their ladder position, and their last fortnight has proven such, with big wins over Fremantle and Carlton.
Can the Lions keep their winning run going? Or will the Hawks continue their rise up the ladder?
