The Subiaco Colts have qualified for the 2013 WAFL finals with a gutsy 14 point win over East Perth.

A nail-biting percentage battle with East Fremantle fluctuated during the match until the Sharks eventually conceded a loss to Claremont; solidifying fourth place for the Lions.

The return of Michael Wood elevated the Lions into an inspired performance; with three goals by the prolific forward proving the difference between the two sides.

Honourable showings by the likes of Kennedy (20 disposals), Scafidi (23 disposals), Jackson (19 disposals), Webster (18 disposals 2 goals) and Clark (21 disposals) also stood out as Subiaco earned their right to play finals football.

Captain Declan Jackson was happy with the gutsy effort by the Lions; recognising the hard working attitude of his side.  

“I thought we played pretty well all day and showed a lot of fight. Although we dropped off a little in the second quarter with the breeze. we fought hard for the win.”

A key feature of the victory was the defence’s resilience and ability to shut-down their opponents. This was evident in the first quarter where Jackson and Co held East Perth to a single point.

“The defence boys are really close. We’re all really good mates; almost like a team within a team; so we work pretty well together.”

The defensive team in mention are the likes of Chris Bryan, Corey Buscall, Liam Ellis and Brennan Pearce who worked as an unstoppable unit through portions of the game

With the finals position in the bag; Jackson and the Subiaco Colts look towards an elimination final against the Perth Demons.

“We showed up today like a team ready for the finals and the fact we get guys like Rhys McAlister and Andrew Vawser back for the challenge is even more encouraging.”

KEY POINTS

TIMING IS THE KEY:
The Subiaco Colts look poised to enter the 2013 finals series in some of their best form. With key players like Tim Edwards, Antoine Garlett and Michael Wood back in the mix; as well as the predicted return of Andrew Vawser and Rhys McAlister; the Lions could give September a good shake up.

TAKING OPPORTUNITIES:
Despite creating a whopping 22 scoring shots to East Perth’s 13; the Lions would be disappointed that they couldn’t take opportunity of portions of dominance. Especially in the white-washed first quarter where the Lions could have easily kicked another three or four. This will surely be a point of reference for head coach Steve Armstrong as they prepare for the Perth Demons.
