Lions Push Premiers

 

 

Subiaco fought out a tough 7 point loss to reigning premiers Claremont at Medibank Stadium on Saturday night.

 

 

Former Subiaco teammates Jarrad Schofield and Marc Webb locked horns for the first time in their short coaching careers with Webb taking the early honours.

 

Subiaco suffered a blow when Jarrod Kayler-Thomson was ruled out pre-gam due to a foot injury.

 

West Coast listed forward Jeremy McGovern proved a handful for the Lions defence early on with three first half goals.

 

Brad McDonald showed glimpses of why Subiaco recruited him from Tasmania, battling hard against a star studded Tigers forward line which featured McGovern (3 goals), Ian Richardson (3 goals) and Paul Medhurst (2 goals).

 

Lions midfielder Robert Forrest suffered a shoulder injury just before half-time and played no further part in the game.

 

Claremont gained the momentum in the third quarter and the damage could have been worse if not for the defensive efforts of Ben Randall plus two quick fire goals to Buddy Pickett who finished the night with three majors. 

 

The Lions midfield brigade surged early in the last quarter and Sinclair found himself a deep target in the forward line. The big man bagged his second and third goals for the night within the first 6 minutes to spark a Lions revival.

 

Subiaco stormed to the finish line peppering the goals late but couldn't close the gap.

 

Callum Sinclair continued his red-hot pre-season form finishing with 24 disposals and three goals opposed to Claremont recruit and former West Coast Eagle and Sydney Swan Mark Seaby.

 

First Quarter. 

Ian Richardson started where he left off last season kicking the opening goal from his favoured left foot pocket.

 

Joey Daye provided plenty of dash from half back for the Lions while a clever soccer from Myles Smythe set up David Madut who bagged his first goal in Lions colours.

 

Second Quarter

Sinclair showed courage to run back with the flight of the ball while for claremont 

Andrew Browne found plenty of the ball, highest possession winner on the ground with 14 to half time.

 

Third Quarter

Richardson again found the score board for his second goal of the night, sparking a run-on for the visitors

 

Buddy Pickett provided the highlight of the quarter for Subi fans with back to back goals.

He converted the first after a run down tackle from behind while dummied around his opponent to nail his second.

 

An impressive goal on the run from Brett Mahoney just before the siren reduced the margin to 19 points.

 

Fourth Quarter

Sinclair bagged the opening two goals and while the Lions looked the fitter side Claremont were able to hold on for a 7 point win.

 

SUBIACO 14. 4 88

CLAREMONT 15. 5. 95

 

In the Reserves the Lions were too strong demolishing Claremont by 57 points
