WRAP: ROUND 16 (2017) V Perth

 
Subiaco have created history with a 13th consecutive in-season victory with an 82-point win over Perth at Leederville Oval.
 
In the annual NAIDOC Round match, Subiaco were simply too strong around the contest and too good on the outside for their overwhelmed opponents cruising to an easy win that maintains their lead at the top of the WAFL ladder.
 
If Perth were any chance of causing an upset, many pundits expected it to be with a strong first quarter with Perth being one of the highest scoring first quarter teams in the 2017 WAFL Season.
 
It was not to be however as after Subiaco conceded the first goal of the game, the Lions had the next 10 scoring shots of the quarter to build up a 24-point quarter time lead.
 
A wasteful second quarter, where Subiaco scored nine behinds, kept Perth in the contest, but any fightback chance was snuffed out as Subiaco kicked three goals in quick succession to start the third quarter and from there ran away to a comfortable victory.
 
In what was an even team performance across the four quarters of the match, Subiaco were led by senior players Kyal Horsley with 26 possessions and Adam Cockie with 30 possessions and seven bruising tackles.
 
Subiaco’s big men were dominant across the day with Lachlan Delahunty finishing with 26 possessions, 16 hit-outs and two goals ably supported by Adam Creeper who continued his good start to league football with 15 possessions, 26 hit-outs and two goals.
 
Up forward Liam Ryan made the most of his chances finishing with four goals, Ben Sokol kicked three and on debut Ryan Vermeersch finished with two goals.
 
Another strong defensive effort was spearheaded by defensive stalwarts Jordan Lockyer and Aaron Heal.
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
RECORD BREAKING STREAK
Subiaco for the first time has a 13 game in-season win streak. This current run is now tied with a 13 game win streak stretched across the 2007 and 2008 seasons as the second longest in club history. The current Lions still have a way to go to surpass the 19-win club record streak stretched across the 2006 and 2007 seasons.
 
NAIDOC CELEBRATION
After a fitting NAIDOC celebration pre-match, both of Subiaco’s aboriginal representatives in Saturday’s game had crucial contributions to the win. Liam Ryan bobbed up to kick two goals early in the third quarter that effectively ended the contest while Adam Cockie was arguably Subiaco’s best player on the day with a workmanlike performance through the midfield.
 
DEBUT WORTH THE WAIT
Ryan Vermeersch has had to fight hard for a debut with the Subiaco League team. After 71 games and 107 goals at reserves and colts level, the regional district product from Gibson finally got his chance and made the most of it with great endeavour to the contest. Vermeersch completed a solid debut with two goals.

IT WAS OVER WHEN
It was a moment of magic from Lachlan Delahunty early in the third quarter that started the party for the Lions. Delahunty produced a very clever soccer from deep in the forward pocket that sent the crowd into raptures and stretched the lead to an unassailable 70-points.

D-LEAGUE RECAP
The development team made a massive statement to the competition with a crushing 116-point win over Perth.
 
The big win saw Subiaco climb to third on the ladder, overtaking their opponents in the process.
 
After an even start, Subiaco did the bulk of their damage in the third quarter as they slammed on nine goals to nil, before taking the lead past 100 points midway through the last quarter.
 
Matt Bogensperger continued his hot form with 42 possessions, driving the ball inside 50 on nine occasions, to be the sides best on the day.
 
Up forward Dylan Nelson and Rowen Powell each kicked five goals, while youngster Brayden Ainsworth was solid in his return to Subiaco colours with 17 possessions and three goals.

COLTS RECAP
The Subiaco Colts gritted out a 13-point victory against the Perth Demons at Leederville Oval on Saturday morning.
 
Trailing at three-quarter time, the Lions stormed home to snatch victory away from the Demons.
 
The result sees Subiaco jump to fourth position on the ladder, just two points clear of Swan Districts and two games clear of West Perth, who are sixth.
 
Ben Miller starred for the Lions with 18 possessions, 44 hit-outs, seven marks, three inside 50s, two tackles and a goal.
 
In the midfield Max Dennis (27 possessions, six marks, three tackles, three inside 50s), Liam Hickmott (23 possessions, five tackles, four inside 50s and three marks), Luke Foley (20 possessions, seven inside 50s, six tackles, and three marks), Kyron Hayden (20 possessions, three tackles, two marks, and a goal) and Tom Edwards-Baldwin (20 possessions, three tackles, three inside 50s and two marks) were all prominent.
 
Up forward Che Wyatt continued his excellent season, adding another two goals to his tally. Wyatt now has 20 goals for the season, placing him equal third in the competition.
 
Riley Wojtowicz, Jake Halligan, Duane Smith, Miller and Hayden all kicked one goal each for the home team.
 
In the opening quarter the Lions started with a bang, as Che Wyatt kicked the first goal when he roved a pack and snapped the ball through. Moments later Kyron Hayden was taken high and he converted his set shot. Riley Wojtowicz then found Wyatt inside 50, who went back and kicked his second for the game. It took Perth fifteen minutes to score their first goal and it came through Trent Simpson who nailed his set shot.
 
In the eighth minute of the second quarter Perth’s Lachlan Fraser kicked his first goal when he converted his set shot from 45 metres out. Moments later Regan Flaherty added another for the Demons, but fortunately for the Lions Jake Halligan scored the instant reply. But on the brink of half-time, the highly rated Sydney Stack converted a set shot to reduce the margin to just three points.
 
After the main break it took until the fourteenth minute for either side to kick a goal, notwithstanding several attempts to do so, and unfortunately for the Lions it was Fraser who goaled first. Simpson then snapped one through to push the margin out to seven points.
 
In the final quarter, Luke English drew first blood for the Demons when he roved a pack expertly before snapping it through. However the Lions kicked into gear. Duane Smith managed to soccer through a goal, soon after Ben Miller took a strong contested mark before slotting through the goal that brought the Lions back in front. Riley Wojtowicz had his attempt at goal smothered, but he remained composed to win the ball back and then snapped it through to give the Lions victory.
 
Next week the Lions host the third-placed Claremont on Sunday morning where they will look to continue their winning form.
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
NAIDOC ROUND INSPIRATION
It was only fitting that in NAIDOC round, Subiaco’s Indigenous youngsters inspired their team to victory. Kyron Hayden (20 possessions and a goal), Duane Smith (17 possessions, five tackles, four inside 50s and a goal), and Che Wyatt (14 possessions, 11 hit-outs, and two goals) all contributed to Subiaco’s win.
 
THE RETURN
After a month out with the State 18s, Subiaco big man Ben Miller came back into the line-up and produced another outstanding performance. Arguably the most influential player on the ground Miller recorded 18 possessions, 44 hit-outs and kicked a goal in a dominant display.
 
FEROCIOUS TACKLING
For the tenth time this year, the Colts won the tackle count, this time 44-42. This was led by Nicholas Baroni who nailed a game-high seven tackles, Luke Foley (six tackles) and Liam Hickmott (five).
 
THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
Riley Wojtowicz kicked his first goal after his initial attempt was smothered. It meant that the Demons would have to kick two unanswered goals in precious little time.
 
SUBIACO                            3.4        4.6        4.10       7.18         (60)
PERTH                                 1.1        4.3        6.4         7.5          (47)
 
Goals; 2 C. Wyatt, 1 B. Miller, K. Hayden, R. Wojtowicz, J. Halligan, D. Smith
 
Best; L. Connolly, L. Hickmott, B. Miller, M. Dennis, M. Plane
