Coming off a longer than expected break between rounds with the COVID-19 enforced lockdown last weekend, the Lions were ready to continue momentum from round three, however fell short, with all three grades suffering defeat against the Bulldogs.

Subiaco clashed with 2020 Optus WAFL Premiers South Fremantle in excellent conditions at Fremantle Community Bank Oval, however were unable to secure the four points with the Bulldogs too strong. 

It was a relativity tight affair in the first quarter and looked to set the tone for the game, with the Lions kicking two of the three goals of the quarter; up by seven points at the first break. During the quarter, Subiaco lost two players after a sickening clash between Rowan Powell and Max Walters, with both players unable to return to the field for the remaining match.  

After the first bounce of the second term it was all South Fremantle who were lethal in front of goal, with Mason Shaw the first goal scorer of the quarter giving the Bulldogs the lead five minutes into the second term. Sokol and Putt were Subiaco’s only goal scorers of the quarter where South Fremantle kicked seven goals to amas a 22 point lead at Half-Time.  
South’s came out at after Half Time where they left off, having nine scoring shots to Subiaco’s four, extending their lead with one quarter of football to go to 37 points. The fourth quarter however was all Subiaco. The Lions kept the Bulldogs goalless in the last term, kicking 3.3 and maintaining a lot of possession, however although the Lions had all the momentum in the fourth, it wasn’t enough to bridge the gap, as the Bulldogs ran out 18 point winners. 

Greg Clark was again a standout performer for the Lions, with 30 possessions, six tackles, and 5 inside 50’s. Also a special mention to league debutant Matt Johnson who racked up 11 possessions and five tackles across the wing/half-forward.

Subiaco had a variety of goal scorers this week, with Sokol and Martin the only multiple goal kickers with two each, with Delahunty, Harris, Putt, Faraone and Heal all adding to the goal sheet.
