Read how our Colts performances were rated in the 42 point Elimination final win against Perth.
Jordan Webster 7
Played an important role in Subiaco’s dominant first half. Took numerous contested marks and used the ball terrifically. Received some icing on the cake with a last quarter goal.
Antoine Garlett 6
Was at his speedy, dangerous best in the first half until tightness in his troublesome hamstring forced him to the sidelines for the second half. The injury is only expected to be a minor setback; meaning the excitement machine could return next week against Claremont
Mitchell Turner 6
Worked hard for 15 disposals across the midfield. Always hits the contests hard and makes an impact. Was prominent in the second half although some of his disposal let him down.
Joshua Deluca 9
If you weren’t aboard the Deluca train; now’s your time. The silky midfielder was brilliant against the Demons amounting 31 disposals, nine marks, six inside 50’s and a goal. But one of the best things about Deluca against the Demons was his work around contests.
Hayden Kennedy 6
The Kalgoorlie kid was battling illness in this elimination final but carried on in his signature fashion. Ran hard for a hard earned nine possessions but Subi staff will be hoping Kennedy is back to full fitness for Claremont.
Christopher Bryan 8
Bryan has become an enigmatic carrier of the ball for Subi in 2013 and this final was no exception. Created great run and always uses the ball effectively.
Michael Wood 6
The dominant utility player was carefully managed throughout the game with a leg injury; but only as a precaution after inflicting his influence on a 12 goal Subiaco first half. Should be fine to resume against Claremont.
Connor Wilkinson 8
Wilkinson should be commended for his incredible work ethic. Ran hard and tackled hard to have a huge impact on the final. Lit the game up a couple of times with his run and carry to put his hand up as an important Subiaco midfielder.
Declan Jackson 8
The captain was a rock for Subiaco with 20 possessions and numerous spoils. Holds everything together nicely for the Colts defence.
Timothy Edwards 6
Another key part of Subiaco’s hard-working midfield. Won a couple of crucial contested possessions and kicked a goal in the first half.
Gregory Clark 7
The West Australian U16’s Captain was physical and hard at the ball against a big Demons side. Collected 18 possessions on the left wing to have a influence on the game.
Adam Swain 6
The small midfielder played a defensive role for a majority of the game; and played it well. Super competitive around contests and battled hard against Perth’s playmaker Clem Smith.
Liam Ellis 6
The big back-man was a part of the defence that held the dangerous Perth forward line to a single goal in the first half. Great enforcer in marking contests.
Corey Buscall 9
The 42 point finals victory could probably be rated as Corey Buscall’s best game of the season. Held explosive Perth forward Alexander Moreno goal-less and was composed under pressure.
Jordan Bestry 8
Bestry’s athleticism continues to trouble opposition defenders. The utility provided a unique option for the Lions in the forward line with the ability take a big grab and also rove the ball. Finished with two goals.
Ryan Vermeersch 9
Vermeersch’s performances towards the end of the season continue to get better. Worked off half forward to record 25 disposals and boot three goals. The athletic utility is starting to show freaky potential.
Thomas Hooper 5
Has slotted nicely into the 2013 Colts side with a big frame and a solid work ethic. Had three inside 50’s during the Lions rampant first half.
Rhys McAlister 7
Showed exactly why he was the leading goal-scorer for the WAFL Colts in 2013. Was far too dangerous for Perth to handle in the first half, kicking four goals in a Subiaco landslide.
James Hughes 6
18 year old Hughes brings a ruggedness to the Lions defence. Led with physicality in the backline in an uncompromising defensive display by the Lions.
Brennan Pearce 7
Another player which has found a key role in the Colts side in 2013. The tall defender Pearce had a cracker against the Demons with a strew of contested marks and solid marking.
Adam Creeper 8
Creeper gathered 14 hit-outs in a dominant ruck performance which saw him land in the bests’ column. Maintained the first ruck job for the Lions brilliantly.
Joseph Scafidi 8
The big Kalgoorlie midfielder broke into space more often than Perth would have liked to gather 17 possessions and hit five inside 50’s.
Aaron Summers 7
The pacey winger had 18 disposals against the Demons including a massive first quarter. Serves as ace in the hole for the Subiaco Colts due to his scoring ability but would have liked to kick a bit straighter to only finish with one goal from numerous scoring shots.
