SFC 2017: TOP 10, SO FAR

Chances are when you win 10 of your first 11 games in a season there are going to be some moments you want to remember. There has been more than a handful of standout events since the start of the season in March and the Round 14 bye week presented a perfect moment for reflection. 

Subiaco livewire Liam Ryan lit the internet up with a gigantic grab against Peel Thunder in Round Four. Ryan had already developed a reputation of being a high flying specialist but his monster grab against Peel did the rounds on Australia’s mainstream media. Ryan kicked two and the Lions defeated their 2016 Grand Final nemesis by 15 points.

The Lions continued their Good Friday Form with a 91-point destruction of their co-tenants East Perth at Leederville Oval. Subi led from start to finish with six Liam Ryan goals and 32 possessions from 2016 Outridge medallist Chris Phelan leading the way. Subiaco have won 5 out of 7 from Good Friday Football.

Subiaco’s vice-captain Leigh Kitchin cracked 50 games against Swan Districts with the Victorian charging to the milestone in just 51 possible games. Kitchin came to the club in 2015 and was rewarded for an outstanding debut season with a premiership in his first year. Kitch has become an important figure at the club and his efforts were celebrated against the Swans.
“It’s been a joy moving to Perth and I’m blessed to be in the position I am in,
“I have a lot of really supportive, energetic people around me and it’s pretty great being able to play footy in May while it’s still sunny and dry.” - Leigh Kitchin

South Fremantle teed off at Subi in the opening round and the Lions suffered an emphatic 39-point loss at South Fremantle oval. The Lions responded in typical Subi fashion with a top of the table clash against the Dogs in Round 9 for Horsley's 150. Subi jumped South Freo and outlasted them with their own 39-point win to go top of the table. The Liam’s, Ryan and Baker kicked four a piece whilst Corey Adamson hit his stride.

Subi combined QBE Day and Men’s Health Round against East Fremantle in Round 10 and continued their hot-streak in the cyan blue jumper. Despite the polar opposite positions on the ladder the two sides produced an enthralling game, with the Lions triumphing by 31 points in the end. The day raised funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Two of Subiaco’s favourite sons hit the 150 mark in the space of three weeks with Horsley reaching the honours in Round 9 and Phelan Round 10. The two district grown products have been fixtures in the midfield for years now and contributed to some of the best memories in club history.
“It’s such an honour to go from the beginnings of kicking a football around in Kalgoorlie to achieving 150 games at a club like Subiaco. When I was younger some of these things would have almost seemed un-achievable, but now I’m older I can look back in pride.” - Kyal Horsley
“I never imagined winning one Outridge Medal let alone two, it’s amazing how things work out. In the earlier days, around 2010, I was somewhat un-enthusiastic at continuing my football career and considered retiring at one point, but I’m glad that didn’t happen.” - Chris Phelan

The Subiaco 6, Kyal Horsley, Leigh Kitchin, Clancy Wheeler, Lachlan Delahunty, Corey Adamson and Jordan Lockyer played massive roles in a historic win for WA. The Black Ducks led by Horsley defeated Victoria on their own soil for the first time in history with a massive 63-point triumph at North Port Oval.

The Lions ever-reliable half-back Jordan Lockyer also had a milestone, reaching the 50 mark against Peel Thunder in Round 11. Lockyer returned to Perth in 2015 after spending multiple years on Sydney’s list but settled quickly into his new home. Lockyer heavily contributed to the Lions 2015 premiership and is a barometer in the back line for Subi.

One of the most exciting games the Lions have been a part of in recent years. The 2016 Grand Finalists went toe-to-toe at Bendigo Bank Stadium until the final siren. When Thunder captain Ugle slotted a goal to put the home side up in the last minute, on-lookers almost resided to the fact the game was over. The Subiaco spirit never relinquished however, with a whole field transition starting with 50-gamer Lockyer ending up in a stoppage in the Lions forward line. With seconds remaining, skipper Horsley read the contest perfectly and snapped truly. Subi claimed a famous four-point win and continued the heated rivalry between Peel.  Watch the "titanic" version of the game winner below. 

Ryan put on a show for the home crowd in Round 13 and it was against some prime talent. East Perth played 15 Eagles players amidst a five game winning streak but the Lions were determined to continue their own 10 game streak. The catalyst for this win was WAFL leading goal kicker Liam Ryan who flew on multiple occasions and kicked four goals. Ryan’s freakish ability in the air continues to draw widespread attention.
