Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - 9:39 AM by Creed Griffiths

SUBIACO 17.14.116 defeated EAST FREMANTLE 7.4.46

Subiaco owned the contest from start to finish, starving the Sharks of the ball as they dominated possession and scored heavily, winning 17.14.116 to 7.4.46 resulting in a massive 70-point margin.
The Lions were dominant all over the ground for the majority of the match, keeping the Sharks scoreless in the first quarter as they booted five goals of their own to open up a
33-point margin at quarter time. 

Subiaco’s dominance around the ground proved too much for the Sharks to overcome who were starved of scoring shots due to continually shallow inside 50 entries. The Lions, on the other hand, charged forward out of stoppages and were silky by foot to record a whopping 52 inside 50’s for the day. The continual dominance forward of centre proved too big a burden for the Sharks defenders, who conceded 31 scoring shots for the match. 

It was raining goals at Leederville Oval, with a staggering 14 out of the 22 Lions players registering a shot on goal. Ben Sokol (3 goals, 11 marks), Benjamin Newton (2 goals, 26 disposals), Ryan Borchet (2 goals) and Lachlan Delahunty (2 goals, 30 disposals, 19 hit outs) were the chief destroyers, combining for nine goals of their own and outscoring the Sharks in the process. The latter was utterly dominant, while he may have been soundly beaten in the hit-out category by ex-Docker Jonathon Griffin his work around the ground could not be matched by Griffen, who was run ragged by the Lions star ruckman. 

The Lions shared the ball generously, recording 350 disposals for the day as seven Lions finishing with more than 20 touches for the afternoon. Midfielders Greg Clark (26 disposals, 8 marks) and Kyal Horsley (24 disposals, 7 tackles) dominated on the inside and outside of the contest as all of the Lions stars performed their roles and got their hands dirty on the day.

SUBIACO 6.5.41 defeated PEEL THUNDER 5.2.32

Subiaco was given a scare early on from an unlikely opponent as they took on the cellar-dwelling Peel Thunder in wet and windy conditions at David Grays Arena. The Thunder led at the first break in conditions that made scoring difficult, with the Lions pulling back the deficit to draw ahead by seven points at the main break.

Peel Thunder came out firing in the third term however to once again lead the Lions at three-quarter time, with the lead extending out to five points in what had proven to be a topsy-turvy affair all evening. A scoreless last quarter saw Peel Thunder left stranded on 32 points, with the Lions kicking away in the last quarter to salvage a nine-point victory, securing the Premiership points 6.5.41 to 5.2.32.

Aimee Schmidt was dangerous up forward with two goals to her name, while Lara Filocamo, Claudia Langley, Maggie MacLachlan and Lindal Rohde all scoring valuable goals each. The game rounded out a tough victory for the Lions but proved they had the resilience and an ability to chase down opposition teams in tough conditions.
