WRAP: Round 18 (2017) at Peel

 
Subiaco emphasised their 2017 finals crudentials with a big 46-point win over Peel at Bendigo Bank Stadium yesterday.
 
The maroons put on one of their best performances of the year against a strong Peel side to re-instate their status as the league front runners. Subi torched the Thunder in the first period and never looked back, firing home for their 15th straight win of the year.

WAFL leading goal-kicker Liam Ryan was back to his very best, kicking four and leaping at the packs with ferocity. Ryan is also beginning to adapt to the third man up and defenders blocking his run with the clever goal-shark using his football smarts against the big, experienced defenders of the Thunder.
 
The other standout performance came from back-man Aaron Heal. His intercept marking game and ability to read the flight of the ball ailed the Thunder all day. His 14 marks, most contested, re-instated why he is one of the best defenders in the game.  
 
Captain Kyal Horsley was inspirational again with 29 touches, eight tackles and six inside 50’s. Leigh Kitchin also impressed with 21 touches and three goals. Justin Joyce was clever on the ball and collected 22 disposals.

Subiaco ended up rolling Lachlan Delahunty and Declan Jackson in the ruck to great effect. The big Thunder pair of Jon Griffin and Matt Taberner struggled with their agility and some fantastic stoppage work by the Maroons.
 
The Lions back six have developed some amazing chemistry with Jordan Lockyer, Wayde Twomey, Corey Adamson and Gus Litherland settling into their roles. The addition of Simon Parry also adds another cool head.
 
Subiaco looked ready from the first bounce and recorded the first five inside 50’s within the opening minutes of the game. Peel managed to keep them goal-less until the pressure opened the floodgates. Kitchin kicked the first of the day from a nice dish by Delahunty and the Maroons continued from that momentum. The tackling intensity was ferocious by the Lions with a concentrated effort on pressure taking its toll on the Thunder. The home side gave up quick goals in succession due to immense pressure, both to Maxy Walters. The first Walters goal was set up by fantastic hustle from Ryan and the second one was a crushing holding the ball tackle in the pocket by Walters himself. A big Liam Ryan mark and goal finished off one of the most dominant quarters produced by the team this season. Subi led 28 – 0 at the first break.

Peel found their way into the game in the second quarter as Subiaco’s ball-use lost a bit of its sleekness. Brady Grey kicked the Thunder’s first from a set shot, and Zac Dawson followed after for the second. The Thunder started generating better inside 50 opportunities and hit their lead up targets a couple of times. A big goal from young Aaron Naughton made it three straight to cut the deficit to 11. Subiaco finally got some good movement through the corridor and found Scott Hancock wide open in space. Rory O’Brien over stepped his mark and sent Hancock 10 metres out for the only Lions goal of the quarter. Subi led by 16 at half time.

The premiership quarter delivered the goods with the Maroons ferocious pressure returning. A shocking Matt Taberner kick going backwards landed in the hands of Liam Ryan who happily converted from 10 metres out. The game was heavily contested with the big hitting the highlight of the play. Pacey Docker Brady Grey added his second goal to make it 19 points at the last break.

When Peel got the first goal of the last quarter it looked to be another epic between the two sides again. Taberner was awarded a free kick in the pocket and converted the snap to make it a 14-point game. With the pressure on, it was the Lions high-flying star Liam Ryan who delivered. Ryan flew above and between two Peel players to pluck another big mark and went back to kick truly. The 20-point lead seemingly broke the Thunder who only recorded a single point for the rest of the quarter. Subiaco went on to put four more goals on through Brad Stevenson, Leigh Kitchin and Greg Clark. A resounding finish from a strong showing by the Maroons. Subi claim the four points with a 46 point victory.

GAME CHANGERS 
 
 
RYAN BACK AT HIS BEST
 
Ryan has had to work through some injury and form concerns but he was his electric best against Peel. The young, high-flying forward seemingly loves to play against Peel and tortured them with his contested marking ability. He did a little bit of everything on the day though with his defensive pressure stressing defenders into poor decisions. Ryan has kicked 50 goals from 16 games which is remarkable for a small forward in modern football.

FIRST QUARTER CRUSH
 
Peel didn’t enter their forward 50 until the 22nd mark of the first quarter. That’s how comprehensive the Lions pressure was and the Maroons defenders had a field day picking off errant Thunder kicks. The team effort in the first set the platform for a massive win over an in-form Peel side. Subi have now swept the Thunder, winning all three encounters in 2017. 

STAR DOCKERS NEGATED
 
A couple of the Thunder’s Fremantle stars had a day they would rather forget. Danyle Pearce was outworked in the midfield, Luke Ryan had a nightmare in defence and Harley Bennell was a non-factor. The individual efforts of the Lions on their direct opponents was outstanding.

THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
 
Greg Clark slotted home a set shot after winning his last quarter battle with Sam Collins. Collins was good on the day but Clark got under his skin to receive a free kick. Clark went back and converted it and definitely let him know about it.

D-LEAGUE RECAP:

The development team got back on the winners list with a great 9-point comeback win against Peel at Bendigo Bank Stadium.

The Lions were under the hammer in the second quarter and fell almost four goals behind before mounting a strong third quarter.
 
Ray “Razor” Daniels was on top in the forward line kicking three and worked well with Dylan Nelson (3 goals) and Shannon Nelson (2 goals).

Young star Brayden Ainsworth played his 5th reserves game and impressed with 22 touches. Matt Bogensperger had 33 touches and Daniel Leach 27. The depth of midfield players at the club is creating a fantastic competitive culture.
 
Dylan Clarke continues to produce silky performances and his 22 disposals and two goal effort was influential.

Young defenders James Eccles, Jack Beverley and Ben Reid were strong and ruck Tim Sutherland battled well against Luke Strnadica.

The big win puts Subi three games clear inside the top 5 at 4th.

COLTS RECAP: 
 
 
The Subiaco Colts went down by 36 points to the Peel Thunder at Bendigo Bank
Stadium on Saturday morning.
 
The result sees the Lions in a precarious position by only being one game clear of
East Perth for fifth position.
 
Liam Hickmott continued his fine season for the Lions, finishing with 27
possessions, four tackles, two marks and a goal.
 
Luke Foley (21 possessions and four tackles), Nic Baroni (20 possessions and
four tackles), and Kyron Hayden (17 possessions and two tackles) were
prominent in the midfield.
 
Up forward, Christian Martin and Zane Shellabear-Healey both kicked two goals,
while Jaxon Bilchuris, Che Wyatt, Tom Edwards-Baldwin and Hickmott all kicked
one goal each.
 
Peel dominated the early stages of the game, but it took until the ninth minute
for them to score a goal when Zac Moody snapped one through. Zane Shellabear-
Healey found Christian Martin inside 50, and the Carine junior scored the instant
reply for the Lions. Lee Chapman got out the back and dribbled through his first
goal. Late in the quarter, Zane Shellabear Healey took an uncontested mark
inside 50, near the boundary. The youngster went back and converted a
checkside to tie the scores up at 15 apiece.
 
The Thunder started the second quarter with a bang as Jarrad Fazioli and Alex
Cohen kicked goals for the home team. In the 11 th minute, Shellabear-Healey took
a strong mark inside 50 and he duly converted his set shot. Che Wyatt then put
on excellent defensive pressure and was rewarded when got a holding the ball
decision, and he converted his set shot. Liam Hickmott intercepted a Peel
rebounding defensive 50, and banged through a goal from 50m out to put the
Lions up by a goal.
 
Cohen got the Thunder off to a good start in the third quarter when he slotted his
second goal of the game, in the opening minutes of the quarter. From the
following centre bounce, Mach Deng got the ball inside 50 and Tom Edwards-
Baldwin took a strong contested mark. The Kingsley junior then nailed his set
shot from 35m out. However, it was the Thunder from then on, as Fazioli (twice),
Michael Randall (twice), Billy Chambers and Ty Anderson all kicked goals for the
home team. On the brink of three quarter time, Christian Martin kicked his
second to bring some life into Subiaco.
 
In the final quarter, Martin kicked his third goal of the game to get the Lions
within 19 points. However, Kyle Havekberg then banged through two goals, and
moments later, Tyson Powell added another.
 
Next week, Subiaco will travel to East Fremantle Oval where they will take on the
top-of- the-table East Fremantle.
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
SON OF A GUN CONTINUES FINE FORM
 
Liam Hickmott continued his excellent season for the Lions with 27
possessions and a goal. The Sorrento-Duncraig junior was a shining light in
the midfield, often burying himself into the contest to win the hard ball.
Hickmott, the son of former Geelong and Carlton player Adrian Hickmott,
looks to have a bright future for the Lions.
 
DEBUTANTS HIGHLIGHT THEIR FUTURES.
 
Both Zane Shellabear-Healey and Jaxon Bilchuris made their debuts for the
Lions against the Thunder and both showed glimpses of their potential.
Bilchuris used his big frame to outmuscle his opponents while Shellabear-
Healey displayed exceptional football nous.
 
THE IMPROVEMENT OF DENG
 
Mach Deng continued his improvement in 2017 against the Thunder. Lined up
on Billy Chambers, he recorded 22 hit-outs compared to Chambers’ 25. The
Ballajura junior displayed his awesome athleticism and with more
improvement could be in for a bright future with the Lions.
 
THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
 
Peel’s Kyle Havelberg kicked his first goal of the game, in the final quarter. It
pushed the margin out too far and stopped the Lions’ momentum in the final
quarter.
