SFC 2016: Finals Reserves Wrap v East Fremantle
- Sunday, 04 September 2016
The Lions trailed by 21 late in the last but put together a run to get within two. Subi had their chances to win the game late but ultimately fell short.
Subi’s team had a host of star performers and some returning faces. Defender Hayden Kennedy and forward Ben Sokol played their first games after being sidelined for an extended period and they both performed well.
It was a hard day for the forwards but Braden Fimmano and Ben Sokol both kicked two. Bill Fetherstonhaugh, Bradley Stevenson, Justin Joyce, James Garcia and Shaq Mckenzie all had singles.
East Fremantle had the early running with the first four scoring shots. Two behinds and goals to Green and Coulthard gave the Sharks an early lead. A Lewis Krakour goal put the Sharks ahead by 19 at the 16 minute mark. A fourth East Freo goal to Jacob Green put the Lions under the pump. Subiaco were held goal-less and trailed by 26 points at the first break.
Subi desperately needed the first goal but to their dismay, East Fremantle’s Jacob Green found some space to nail his second. The Lions got their first through midfielder Braden Fimmano and moments later Ben Sokol kicked truly to give Subi a boost. Justin Joyce got the Lions third consecutive goal at the 16 minute mark to reduce the margin to 16. Green kicked a third for the Sharks but a second for Braden Fimmano and a big goal from Bill Fetherstonhaugh reduced the lead to 16 points at half time.
SUBIACO 0.1 5.2 6.4 9.6 (60)
