WAFL round three...
SIX goals in the last quarter by East Fremantle was enough to put overdue doubt in the Claremont camp in round three of the WAFL. Max Duffy, who has been in draft discussion for the past two years, finally made his debut for the Sharks and booted four goals. Former AFL listed players Jayden Schofield (Western Bulldogs) and Jack Perham (Collingwood) each kicked three goals for a team that now looks potent. Jonathon Griffen dominated in the ruck and midfielders Brad Shepherd and Mark McGough enjoyed the service. Chad Jones kicked four goals for the Tigers and Tom Lee was again impressive.
East Fremantle 19.8 (122) Claremont 13.10 (88).
Subiaco took a clear lead at the top of the table after coming from behind to beat South Fremantle in the Friday night game at Fremantle Oval. Blake Broadhurst spent the summer traveling overseas, had a run in the reserves last week and kicked six goals in his return to the senior team. Recruit Callum Sinclair kicked four goals and Aidan Parker continued his impressive start to the year in defence. Ryan Cook was dynamic for the Bulldogs and Ryan Murphy kicked three goals.
Subiaco 18.5 (113) South Fremantle 15.15 (105).
East Perth jumped West in the Perth derby and still led by 23 points at three quarter time before falling in a hole. The Falcons kicked five goals to none in the last quarter to win by eight points. Queenslander Matthew Fowler kicked four goals in debut for the Falcons, Anton Saylor got three and Jay Van Berlo was strong throughout in the midfield. Dylan Roberton, playing on the wing, was the best of the Royals and youngster Hayden Crozier again gave indications of real talent.
West Perth 13.8 (86) East Perth 11.12 (78).
Perth picked up their first win for the season when they held off Peel to win by five points at Lathlain Park. Ross Young was outstanding for the Demons, Ben Noakes was solid in his first game and Brad Fry kicked the winning goal. Pat Travers was instrumental in the Thunder come back, Peter Faulks was again good in defence and Kris Thornton almost won the game for his team. Perth led by 36 points during the third quarter only to give up the lead in the last – after losing from 50-points up in round two they have a little chink to iron out.
Perth 12.12 (84) Peel 12.7 (79).
Ladder: Subiaco 12; Claremont 8; Swan Districts 4; East Fremantle 4; South Fremantle 4; Perth 4; West Perth 4; East Perth 0; Peel 0.
