WRAP: Round 20 (2017) vs Swans

 
Subiaco have secured the 2017 minor premiership with a 29-point win over the Swans at Leederville Oval on Saturday.

A strong second quarter allowed the Maroons to create distance on the 4th placed Swans and they kept them at bay over the remainder of the game.

The dominant spell in the second quarter was ignited by Liam Ryan who went on his way to scoring a bag of five against the Swans. Ryan has now kicked a remarkable tally of 60 goals from 18 games.
 
Adam Cockie was clinical in the middle and collected 31 touches and seven inside 50’s. With captain Kyal Horsley and 2016 Outridge medallist Chris Phelan sidelined, Cockie put his hand up to carry the workload.
 
He had a well-rounded host of contributors however with Lachlan Delahunty (24 disposals, 13 marks & 11 hit-outs), Leigh Kitchin (27 disposals) and Justin Joyce (20 disposals) providing plenty of firepower.
 
Defender Aaron Heal continued his fantastic season with 20 disposals and continues to fly at the ball with confidence. His ability to switch play and generate movement from the back line is also crucial for the Maroons.
 
Jarrad Schofield would have been ecstatic with how the three inclusions played with big men Rowen Powell and Adam Creeper providing presence in the contest and defender Hayden Kennedy providing electric speed off the back line. It was Kennedy's first game since Round One this year. 
 
The game was a well-balanced effort by the Lions with the only negatives coming from inaccurate kicking and injuries to Craig Hoskins and Max Walters. Hoskins was concussed in a tackle and Max Walters sat the rest of the game out after a minor leg injury.
 
 
GAME CHANGERS 

MINOR PREMIERS

The win means Subiaco will finish on top of the ladder for the 2017 season with South Fremantle three games behind with only two to play. It has been a remarkable season for the Lions but they will be determined to continue their momentum from here. The minor premiership means nothing unless you’re holding the cup at the end of September.

CROWLEY RETURNS

It was the first-time 2004 Subi premiership player Ryan Crowley took stride onto the Lions den since a solitary game in 2011 with the midfielder lining up for the Swans on Saturday. Crowley received a host of cheers from the home crowd, especially in the last 10 minutes when the Subi faithful cheered every time he touched the ball. The veteran turned and gave the thumbs up to the Subi faithful who thoroughly supported him following his move from the Calder Cannons to Subiaco over 10 years ago.
 
REST IS CRUCIAL

Subiaco will be welcoming the bye week with open arms after a physical encounter with the Swans. The Swan Districts had a lot of big bodies and made the Lions earn their win in Round 20. A big tackle on Hoskins and a minor injury to Walters will be managed as Subiaco strive to get their best team on the park for finals.
