Royals Out Run Lions

 

The Subiaco Lions have gone down to East Perth 15.25 115 to 11.9 75 in the annual Mayors Cup.

A gallant Lions outfit competed early but couldn’t handle the powerful midfield of the third placed Royals who dominated possession.

George Hampson furthered his AFL interest today with a gutsy 20-possession game in a losing side joined by Joey Daye, Patrick Hassett, Ryan Wade and Clancy Wheeler in the best's column.

Young gun Chris Deluca also had a solid day on the paddock with a handful of possessions and two goals.

It was always going to be a tough encounter for the sixth placed Lions, even with the confidence from a two-point victory against West Perth the week before.

The sides were five goals apiece at the first break, but the Royals mustered 11 scoring shots to just five in the second to stretch a 38-point lead, to which the Lions never recovered.

QUARTER BY QUARTER

First quarter:
Subiaco came out with a spring in their step as they took the Royals head on. Although poor kicking from the co-tenants kept the score tight, there was no denying Subiaco's pressure and energy around the ball. Broadhurst stood tall in the forward line working well with goal-sneak Chris Deluca, who nailed two goals.
 
Second quarter:
The Lions struggled to get off the ground in the second and gave up a string of easy goals. As the pressure in the midfield dropped East Perth took advantage and set up numerous scoring chances against Subi's battered defenders. Captain Aidan Parker and fellow veteran Patrick Hassett stood up to the challenge in the second and contested well to hold onto a glimmer of hope for the maroon and gold.
 
Third quarter:
A gigantic third term was required from the Lions but unfortunately effort didn’t translate onto the scoreboard. Although they did negate East Perth to only three goals, a meager goal and four points saw the Royals steam away in the premiership quarter. 

Fourth quarter:
The Lions are renowned for their fight, and fight they did; winning the last quarter with a four goal last term to reduce the deficit to a more realistic total.
A Rhett Kerr goal right at the end highlighted his brilliant kicking accuracy as the developing Lions finished their last home game of 2012 with a 40 point loss.
 
One percenter:
Although the Lions didn’t kick a winning score, big forward Blake Broadhurt's forward pressure and second efforts didn’t go unnoticed. He hassled, chased and led all day in a hard outing at the office, but it wasn’t from lack of trying. The veteran now has an important job ushering in the new wave of Subiaco goal-kickers.
 
Shuff Ruck:
Usually a defender, sometimes a midfielder and now a ruckman as captain Aidan Parker filled Subiaco's secondary ruck duties in the absence of Scott Douglas. The 29 year old veteran energetically played a ruck role and won ten hit-outs and gathered 18 disposals, a few roved from his own hits.
