Memory Lane - Round 6 Memories

Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 2:48 PM

Our weekly memory lane segment sees us take a trip back to some of the memorable Round 6 encounters that Subiaco has had.


It has proven to be a memorable round, with some memorable and historic wins over Subiaco's bitter rivals, and this weekend's compatants, West Perth.


Peter Featherby had a blinder one year, Brad Smith kicked a bag one year, Chris Phelan was everywhere another year, plus remember a great comeback Subiaco win. 


Get the round 6 Subiaco memories!



Subiaco 170 d 108 West Perth

Round 6 of the 1986 season saw the great Peter Featherby produce one of Subiaco’s best individual games and one of his own standout games. Featherby had 45 possessions and kicked three goals, his third most recorded in a game. Incredibly this 45 possession game, came just four weeks after he had 46 possessions. On the back of Featherby’s big day, Subiaco kicked 15 goals to seven, with a four point half time lead extended to a 62 point win over bitter rivals West Perth.



Subiaco 182 d 58 Peel Thunder

In Round 6, 2007 Subiaco showed off its class once again defeating Peel by 124 points. After kicking just four goals in the opening quarter, Subiaco exploded after the quarter time break kicking 24 goals to eight on their way to the rout of Peel. In an even team performance it was Brad Smith who led from the front up forward with eight goals, while Chad Fletcher and Shaun Hildebrant combined for 69 possessions. Greg Broughton had 27 possessions and kicked four goals to be another strong performer for the Lions.



Subiaco 69 d 68 East Perth

After a slow start to the 1997 season, Subiaco found themselves in sixth spot heading into a key clash with East Perth at Subiaco Oval. The season seemed to be slipping away for the Lions as they trailed by 12 points heading into the last quarter set to fall further from finals calculations into seventh. However in a stunning final quarter comeback on a wintry day at Subiaco Oval, the Lions kicked three goals to one and clawed to a one point victory. Todd Breman and Jarod Shawcross scored six of Subiaco’s nine goals leading them to the big win.



Subiaco 100 d 45 Claremont

In a quirk of the WAFL fixture and bye structure, Subiaco did not play in Round 6 for three years between 2014 and 2016. Last year on their return to Round 6 action, the Lions came from behind to overrun Claremont with a dominant final quarter burst. Trailing by three goals at quarter time and with scores still close heading into the final change, Subiaco powered away with an eight goal to nil final quarter onslaught. Chris Phelan was dominant with 34 possessions, 10 tackles and 11 forward 50 entries while Liam Ryan continued to find form with a five goal haul. On debut small forward Liam Baker kicked two goals.



Subiaco 153 d 82 West Perth

Bitter rivals West Perth had made their move to Joondalup in the 1994 season. Subiaco played at Joondalup once in 1994, suffering a big loss. In fact early in the Joondalup days, West Perth would be force at home. In their first 13 games they had won 10 and never lost by more than 33 points. Round 6 of 1995 saw Subiaco rewrite the history books inflicting a 71 point loss on their arch rivals on their home turf, the biggest ever win Subiaco has had at Joondalup and the sixth heaviest loss West Perth have had at their home. Jason Heatley led from the front with six goals while Andrew Macnish and Andrew Donnelly added four a piece. David Snow was everywhere finishing with three goals. Subiaco were ruthless in the final quarter kicking 11 goals.
