Dour Day for Lions

Kane Bloxsidge was one of the few positives the Lions could take from the match. 

Kane Bloxsidge has won the Andrew Christie medal as the player that most exemplified the ANZAC spirit in Subiaco’s round seven clash against East Perth.

It was one of the few positives in a dirty day for the Lions, going down 9.12 (66) to 5.5 (35) in the rain-affected match.

The Royals always in control and in front on the scoreboard after kicking the first four majors of the game.  

The Lions able to drag two back before the quarter time siren but never getting within three-straight kicks of their co-tenant.

The task for the Lions made all the much harder as the heavens opened and the contest became a dour affair. 

East Perth adjusted better able with 11 more scoring shots, their inaccuracy and Subiaco’s ability to capitalise on their few chances the only thing preventing a blowout.

Royals’ big man Josh Smith proved hard to stop booting four on a night when goals would be hard to come by.

Captain Aidan Parker again in Subiaco’s best few, ably supported by Kane Bloxsidge and Clancy Wheeler while on his return Rob Forrest tried hard.

QUARTER BY QUARTER:

First quarter:

Subiaco’s day got off to the worst imaginable starts with East Perth kicking four straight goals to race out to an early lead in wet conditions. The Lions managed to kick to goals late in the quarter to bring themselves back into the contest but the majority of the damage was done with a five goal to two quarter.

Second quarter:

As the rain increased and scoring became more difficult the sides played out a scoreless opening ten minutes to the second half. Blake Broadhurst kicked his first goal of the afternoon but the Royals had the answers with two goals of their own to take a five-goal lead into the main break.

Third quarter:

If it was possible for the rain to get heavier in the third it did and when East Perth kicked the first goal all of the air went out of the contest. Two late goals for Subiaco gave them an unlikely chance, trailing by 29-points at the final change.

Fourth quarter:

With all of the fizz out of the game and a flooded Medibank Stadium it was a low-scoring fourth quarter with the sides only combining for nine-points between them. East Perth kicking the only goal while all the Lions could conjur up in the final quarter was three behinds.

 

Andrew Christie Cup:

Kane Bloxsidge went about the game in the unassuming nature that has become his custom. Recognised as the Subiaco player which most exemplified the ANZAC Spirit.

 

Bounce back:

The Lions will be out for revenge when they face last year’s Premiers Claremont in round eight. After two disappointing performances pride will be at stake for the Lions.
