WRAP: Round 19 (2017) at East Fremantle

 
Subiaco are well in stride heading towards the business end of the season after a 61-point win over East Fremantle win at ATOM Park.

The Maroons were unstoppable against the Sharks and had an 80-point buffer before the home-side won the last quarter.

Liam Ryan reinforced why he’s the best forward in the WAFL as he torched the Sharks for five goals. Ryan has kicked 55 goals from 17 games and leads the league in goal-kicking by seven.

Fellow forward Brad Stevenson was superb in the key target role, creating contests and adding five majors himself.
 
Midfielders Justin Joyce (26 disposals), Adam Cockie (27 disposals) and Max Walters (27 disposals) were dominant. Leigh Kitchin’s decision making and ball use was also a highlight.

Wayde Twomey produced some of his best rebounding off the backline for 22 touches, Corey Adamson was solid on George Hampson & Jordan Lockyer was hard at the contest.

The only blight on the day was a knee injury to captain Kyal Horsley which will be assessed during the week.

It looked like a game was on the cards when Jesse Adamini slotted the first for the Sharks. It was all Maroon and Gold from there however with Liam Ryan igniting the Lions scoring. Ben Sokol nailed a beautiful set shot and Justin Joyce had a third straight goal when he snapped from a stoppage. Horsley produced some fantastic clearance work and boomed it deep into the forward line for Adam Cockie. Cockie stepped back and converted truly. Matthew Watson got a brief respite but a Wayde Twomey goal on the siren made it 22 points at quarter time.

Brad Stevenson continued the party with his first to get the second rolling. East Fremantle looked like they had a sniff when Jonathon Marsh intercepted a handball and kicked on the run to negate the Stevenson goal. But the Maroons turned on the burners to kick six consecutive goals. Ryan kicked two goals in the spree and majors to Cockie, Kitchin and Sokol stretched the lead beyond 50 points. A goal to Perham for the Sharks made it 43 at half time.

The sides went goal for goal to start the third with James Garcias first balanced out by Dion Anthony goal. Subiaco reinforced why they are the best third quarter team in the competition however with Liam Ryan kicking his fifth, Brad Stevenson wreaking havoc and a Delahunty team-goal stretching the distance to 80 points.
 
The last quarter lacked intensity and the Lions would be slightly disappointed that they let the Sharks win the final stanza. East Fremantle recorded four goals to Subiaco’s one in the last term but the Lions cruised to a massive win nonetheless. The 61-point victory is Subiaco’s 16th in a row and maintains a three game gap on top of the ladder.
 
Wayde Twomey fires the ball out of the backline. 

 

GAME CHANGERS 

RUCKING AROUND

Subiaco have become accustomed to forfeiting the hit-out count but young Adam Creeper’s contributions have given the Lions midfield another advantage. The combination of Creeper and Lachlan Delahunty won the hit-out count 54-51 and consistently gave Subi’s midfield strong passages to take the ball away.

IT’S THE CHANCES YOU TAKE

Subi were clinical kicking at goal against the Sharks and it demonstrated that they were a class above. A conversion rate skyward of 70% was a highlight for the Lions who took all their chances against the under-siege Sharks. Liam Ryan and Brad Stevenson converted an impressive 10 goals and 1 behind.
 
SITTING PRETTY

The Lions 16th win of the season has them strongly placed to take out the minor premiership. The Maroons are three wins clear of South Fremantle with three games remaining in the season but will have to overcome a plucky Swans outfit, West Perth and East Perth to secure their position. There’s no time to relax as September approaches.

THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
 
The Lions went coast to coast in about 30 seconds with the forward 50 entry landing in the hands of big Brad Stevenson. The forward wheeled out onto his right and slotted on the run to completely deflate the Sharks.
