TOP 5 MOMENTS: SO FAR
- Wednesday, 20 April 2016
Subiaco faced tough competition in Round One of the 2016 WAFL Season with Peel Thunder fielding a side with 19 Fremantle Docker listed players. Despite falling behind; a spirited comeback in the second half and six goals from Kyle Halligan lifted the Lions above a loaded Peel side for a memorable eight point win at Bendigo Bank Stadium.
2. GOOD FRIDAY FRACAS
In Round Three the Lions travelled to West Perth, HBF Arena for the International Football Festival. Subiaco celebrated the 100th game of two time premiership player and x-factor Clancy Wheeler. In-accurate kicking let the Falcons back in the game before a last quarter burst from Subi blew them out of the water. Wheeler manned the ruck and enjoyed a goal as the Lions steamrolled West Perth on their home-deck.
4. DEMON HUNTING
The Lions faced a lively Perth outfit buoyed by a win the previous week. The Lions had won the last six over the Demons and Round Four at Medibank continued the streak. Utility Lachlan Delahunty was unstoppable with 33 touches, 23 hit-outs and a goal. Subi recruit Hamish Shepheard also stood out with his biggest tally as a Lion so far, kicking five against an overwhelmed Perth. Subiaco went 4-0 with a comfortable 50-point win over the WAFL strugglers.
The Lions were hungry for an undefeated record heading into the bye-week and they achieved that goal with a 39-point win over Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval. Big men Lachlan Delahunty and Clancy Wheeler were dominant again and helped the Lions to a big win after a slow start. The Swans led by two points at half time before reigning premiers Subi amounted a convincing 39-point win.
