Subi roar in Leederville derby

 
Subiaco has confirmed their position as premiership favourites with a 23 point win over rivals East Perth at Medibank Stadium. 
 

The Royals have been the only team to comprehensively beat the Lions in 2015; and Subi redeemed the Round Three debacle with a thrilling five goal last quarter. 

Subi overcame their co-tenants despite a host of big changes to the line-up. Craig Hoskins earned his league debut and contributed nicely in the midfield. Young ruck Jordan Bestry came in for Dave Madut whilst Dylan Elliott, Simon Moore and Scott Worthington came into the side.  

Even though Subiaco played their youngest side of the year; they looked more composed when the game was there to be won. 

Half-back Jordan Lockyer was outstanding for Subi and continues to be one of the best intercept defenders in the league. Lockyer recorded nine marks; eight were contested. 

Kyal Horsley led the midfield valiantly with 25 touches and Brett Robinson, Brett Mahoney, Leigh Kitchin, Sam Menegola were prominent. The efforts of Horsley and Menegola in the last quarter were invaluable as they drove the Lions to a win. 

Michael Wood and Kyle Halligan led the goal-kicking for Subiaco with three each. The most rewarding thing about the Lions attack was their ability to spread the load. Wood and Halligan are both young goal-sharks who will only get better. 

Subi started the game well and burst out to a quick three goal lead. Clancy Wheeler was integral for the Lions in the first quarter and played a healthy part in Shane Yarran and Kyle Halligan goals. Subi looked like they were running away with the game early until Karpany capitilised on a free kick. Moments later another free kick gifted Royals captain Craig Wulff a goal, 23-14 at quarter-time. 

East Perth got the first goal of the second through another free kick to Wulff, the experience Royal took his chances against the flow to make it 23-22 early in the second. Subi established dominance and kicked back to back goals through Michael Wood and Kyle Halligan but the game was up for grabs in the second half. Subiaco leading 49-35 at half-time. 

The Royals came out hungry in the third and kicked the first two goals of the quarter to tie the scores at 49 a piece. Subiaco managed to shut-down East Perth's attack however; with Jordan Lockyer's presence proving paramount for the Lions. Subi could only manage two points in the third to lead by a point at three quarter time. 

With the game on the line the Lions did what good sides do; and lifted. The clearances dramatically favoured Subiaco in the last quarter as they ran the Royals of the park with a five goal rampage. Wheeler soccered home before Halligan and Wood finished off their scoring for the day. East Perth kicked back with two quick goals late until Simon Moore nailed a set shot sealed the victory. Subiaco winning by 16. 

 
 
TALKING POINTS
 
 
BESTRY BATTLES:

Big Jordan Bestry got the call up against East Perth and fought valiantly against two of the best big men in the WAFL. Paul Johnson and Fraser Mcinness stood as a huge challenge for Bestry; but the youngster earned his stripes with a gutsy performance. Bestry and the Lions high powered midfield won the contested battles which went a long way to winning the game. 

 
HORSE AND THE SNAKE:
Subi needed a big finish as they held a single point lead going into the last. They recieved un-bridaled effort from captain Kyal Horsley who left everything on the field. Horsley was inspirational for Subiaco alongside Sam "The Snake" Menegola who has become a big game player for the Lions. Menegola missed a couple of opportunities, but made amends with a huge running goal to take the air out of the Royals in the last quarter. 
 
 
WULFF ON A CHAIN:

East Perth captain Craig Wulff was pure class in the encounter and made the most of his opportunities against the play. Wulff kicked three from four in a un-predictable first half and looked to be the thorn in the side of Subiaco again. Fortunately for the Lions they were able to shut-down his impact in the second half, with the Royals veteran only managing four more possessions. 

QBE MAN OF THE MATCH:
Jordan Lockyer takes the QBE Man of the Match for Round 16 after a best on ground display. Lockyer had 24 touches, nine marks and eight tackles in an absolute blinder against the rival Royals. Derek Cullinane wins the signed jersey for guessing the MOTM correctly! 
 
THE GAME WAS WON WHEN:
Subiaco moved the ball with precision on the counter after East Perth pulled the lead back to 16. Through a string of kicks Shane Yarran found Simon Moore in acres of space in the forward line. The midfielder collected his nerves and slotted the 40 metre set shot to ice the game.

RESERVES RECAP:
 
Subi’s reserves suffered a second half fade-out to fall to the Royals by 26 points at Medibank Stadium.

Dave Madut made way for the first time this season and played reserves football in favour of Jordan Bestry. Madut displayed how much he’s grown in 2015 with a whopping 48 hit-outs.

Max Walters led a depleted midfield group with 25 disposals but lacked support around the stoppages. Blechynden (16 disposals) and Scafidi (16 disposals) also worked hard.

Subiaco’s international recruit also made his debut with Rory Smith from the Boston Demons making his debut for the reserves. Smith is a project player Football Operations Manager Luke Sanders is exciting to be working on as the US utility acclimatises to the club.

REDiMED COLTS RECAP:

Subiaco’s colts have recorded their third win of the season with a 19 point win over East Perth at Medibank Stadium.
 
The Lions were buoyed by the inclusion of WA State 18’s captain Greg Clark who returned from state duty last week. Clark was a league above collecting 29 disposals, six marks and five inside 50’s.
 
Ethan Burnett enjoyed having Clark in the trenches gathering 21 and kicking two goals whilst Chad Barns had 21 touches and five marks.

Paul Silvestro kicked two goals to make it five from two games. Silvestro is becoming a handy forward option. Josh Underwood also kicked two goals.
