WRAP: Round 10 (2017) vs East Fremantle

 
Subiaco are solid on top spot after withstanding a QBE Day scare against the Sharks at Leederville Oval.

The Lions looked comprehensively in control until the last placed Sharks made a resurgent comeback in the second half. The scores were tied early in the last quarter until Subiaco steered away for a hard-fought victory.

Subi have now beaten every other WAFL team in 2017 and are looking strong heading into the state week bye at 8-1. South Fremantle’s loss to East Perth places the Lions two games ahead in 1st.

Corey Adamson continues to be a revelation in the backline and his speed and physicality was huge again for the Lions. Adamson collected 28 disposals, eight tackles and nine inside 50’s. The vice-captain Leigh Kitchin was a general in the midfield, gathering 30 touches, 7 tackles whilst skipper Kyal Horsley collected 25 and a goal.

Liam Ryan produced another solid yield despite his presence remaining quiet. Whenever Ryan touches the ball cleanly a Subiaco score is usually inbound. Ryan finished with four goals and rangy youngster Max Walters had three.
 
Ben Sokol and Clancy Wheeler both played their key target roles to a tee and provided well despite the poor conditions. Sokol and Wheeler finished with two each.
 
Subiaco dominated the first quarter but failed to make the most of their opportunities. The Lions kicked 1.6 to the Sharks 0.3 and Subi’s powerful start wasn’t represented in the score. A host of easy misses threatened to haunt the Lions but East Fremantle could only manage three points.

The Maroons put the pedal to the metal in the second period with goals from the midfield contingent through Kyal Horsley and Max Walters. Ryan’s second had the Lions roaring and Clancy Wheeler added a double kicking towards the city end. A late fight back with goals to Brock O’Brien, Watson and Symonds saved face for the Sharks, but Subi still led by 21 points at half time.

The Lions tried to put away the last placed Sharks early with Liam Ryan’s third major but the Moss St men refused to relinquish. The Sharks peppered points before Andy Howson kicked his first to make it a 20-point game again. A five goal run to the Sharks turned the tables on the game and East Fremantle shot to the front late in the quarter. Two crucial goals by Subi’s Ben Sokol strangled back a five-point lead before the last quarter.
 
Subi scored first with a point in the early moments of the quarter before Cameron Symonds was offered a dubious free kick right in front. The 2011 State 18’s player tied the scores with an easy shot five minutes in. With the scores tied in the last quarter the Lions dug deep to create some space. Liam Ryan nailed a set shot to put Subi up by 6; then a beautiful deep kick from Corey Adamson set Adam Cockie up for consecutive goals. Another goal to both Walters and Baker iced the game for the Maroon and Gold. Subiaco by 31 points.
 
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
HUNTING THE 50
 
Lachlan Delahunty was a star in his 50th game collecting 17 disposals, 39 hit-outs and seven inside 50’s. Delahunty is often the glue that holds Subiaco’s midfield together and he’s arguably putting his best ever season together in 2017.  
 
 
UNLUCKY 150
 
Chris Phelan overcame an injury in the week to make his 150th appearance for Subiaco but it didn’t exactly go to plan. The Lions #15 had seven possessions in the first quarter before being forced from the ground with a knee injury.    
 
 
SUBI HOLDS UP IN THE WET
 
Subiaco are a set shot team when it comes to entering the 50 and the rain took away any chance of slick entries for the Lions. The coaching staff would be pleased however, with how the Lions forward line were still able to generate 30 scoring shots and score over 100 points in greasy conditions. Liam Ryan and Liam Baker were deadly assets when the ball hit the deck as was tall midfielder Max Walters.  
  
THE GAME WAS WON WHEN: 

Baker slid home a running goal in the last quarter to crush any hopes of an East Fremantle comeback.

D-LEAGUE RECAP: 
 
Subiaco’s D-League continue their unlucky streak with a 19 point loss against East Fremantle in a wet and cold day at Leederville Oval.

Greg Clark put in a monster performance for the Lions collected 33 disposals, 11 tackles and five inside 50’s. Ryan Vermeersch had his biggest game of the season with 22 touches, nine tackles and a goal.
 
Young defender/midfielder Josh Underwood collected 22 disposals, James Garcia 20 and Rowen Powell 20.
 
Shannon and Dylan Nelson were energetic in the forward line. Shannon Nelson used the ball well and Dylan continues to provide a big bodied target for the mids. Both finished with two goals.
 
2016 Colts star Fraser Foley also managed two second half goals.

The Sharks jumped Subiaco in the first quarter kicking six goals to two. Fahey and Sorrell kicked three apiece as East Fremantle threatened to blow the game open. Gutsy efforts by Greg Clark and big men Dylan Nelson, Ryan Vermeersch and Rowen Powell brought the difference back to 27 at half time.
 
The two sides traded blows in the third quarter but the Lions had the momentum by the end of it. East Freo stood their ground to stretch the game but two goals by Shannon Nelson had the Maroons humming. Despite the Lions strong finish to the third, a comfortable five goal buffer remained for the travelling Sharks.
 
An untimely downpour of rain stifled the Lions momentum and they were unable to translate it into the fourth period. The first goal of the quarter came after 10 minutes when James Garcia kicked truly to make it a 21-point deficit. Young forward Fraser Foley filled the Maroons with hope moments later with a massive goal as it appeared the Sharks were running out of steam. Subi needed three goals in five minutes + overtime to steal it from East Fremantle ran out of time in the wet weather. East Freo by 19

COLTS RECAP: 
 
The Subiaco Colts were dealt with an 18-point loss to the top-of-the-table East Fremantle at Leederville Oval on Saturday morning.
 
The Lions put up a gallant effort but the Sharks were able to prevail in a fierce contest between the two sides.
 
In the absence of Brayden Ainsworth and Kyron Hayden in the midfield, Max Dennis stood up admirably. The Carine junior accumulated 23 possessions, laid 10 tackles, won four clearances and got the ball inside 50 on three occasions.
 
He was well supported by Wil Hickmott (27 possessions, six inside 50s, four tackles and three clearances), Koby Fullgrabe (24 possessions, four rebounding 50s, four marks and three inside 50s), Liam Hickmott (21 possessions, 12 tackles and five clearances) and Tristan Hobley (21 possessions, five marks, three tackles, three clearances and a goal).
 
Up forward Mitch Hughes and Che Wyatt kicked two goals each, while Christian Martin and Hobley kicked one apiece.
 
The Lions got off to a great start when Christian Martin was able to crash his way past a couple of East Fremantle defenders before finding Wil Hickmott. Hickmott was then able to find Tristan Hobley in the forward 50, and Hobley was then able to score Subiaco’s first goal. It took the Sharks eighteen minutes to get a goal and it came from Drew Blurton who was able to convert his set shot. Three minutes later, Mitch Hughes took a strong contested mark before nailing it from the goalsquare, and the Lions went into quarter-time with a 7-point advantage.
 
Hughes got the Lions roaring in the second quarter when he truly converted a set shot after he was pushed in the back in the opening minutes of the quarter. In the 12th minute, livewire forward Duane Smith was able to slip his way past several defenders before finding Che Wyatt inside 50. Wyatt then went back and nailed his set shot from about 35 metres out. Blurton then brought life back into the Sharks line-up when he kicked a soccer goal, and then on the brink of half-time Cameron Davidson kicked a snap goal to get East Fremantle within a goal of Subiaco.
 
The third quarter truly belonged to East Fremantle. In the 10th minute Sam Lewis roved a pack expertly before scoring the goal that got the Sharks in front. Then late in the quarter Dillon O’Reilly kicked two majors, so the Sharks went into three-quarter time with a 17-point lead.
 
East Fremantle’s Josh Ritchie kicked the opening goal of the final quarter to further the margin to 23 points. However the Lions would not back down and let East Fremantle run over them. In the 13th minute Che Wyatt was able to burn off his direct opponent before coolly slotting a clever checkside that reduced the margin back to 18 points, and a few minutes later Christian Martin got Subiaco within 11 points when he kicked a set shot. Devastatingly for the Lions, Josh Ritchie kicked his second goal in the 21st minute, to help East Fremantle to an 18-point victory.
 
Next week the Lions have the bye but the following week (June 3) the Colts travel down to Bendigo Bank Stadium to face Peel in what should be a thrilling match.
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
DENNIS STEPS UP
The Lions were without two of their best midfielders in Brayden Ainsworth and Kyron Hayden, but Max Dennis stood up to the task. Dennis accumulated 23 possessions, laid 10 tackles, won four clearances and got the ball inside 50 on three occasions. His leadership around the contest and his attack on the man and the ball was simply inspirational. The Carine junior looks to have a bright future with the Lions.
 
THE FEROCITY OF TACKLING
The Colts have proven to be an excellent tackling team this year. This was again the case against East Fremantle when they won the tackle count 87 – 58. Liam Hickmott (12 tackles) led the way for the game and he proved to be a strong factor in the Lions almost snatching victory from the Sharks.
 
KOBY CONTINUES TO DAZZLE
Koby Fullgrabe keeps producing outstanding performances off the half-back line. The Joondalup-Kinross junior continued his rich vein of form with 24 possessions, four rebounding 50s, four marks and three inside 50s. He also looks to have a bright future with the Lions, potentially becoming that x-factor off the half-back line. His run and carry as well as his superb skills hurt opposition sides a lot.
 
THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
East Fremantle’s Josh Ritchie kicked his second goal in the 21st minute of the final quarter. It halted all of the Lions’ momentum and the margin proved to be too great for Subiaco.
