D-League win Reserves Qualifying Final by 2 points

 

Subiaco's Development League team recorded a hard fought two point win over Claremont in the 2017 Reserves Qualifying Final held at Fremantle Oval yesterday. 

 

After trailing by as much as 15 points in the first half, Subiaco made a decisive break in the third quarter before again pulling away in the fourth quarter and finally withstanding a concerted Claremont push for a late victory, holding on to a two point win.

 

In their respective returns from injury, Bailey Matera with 24 possessions and Justin Joyce with 22 possessions led the way for Subiaco while rising star Brayden Ainsworth added 23 possessions and kicked two goals. 

 

Dylan Nelson and Dylan Clarke each kicked three goals while Ryan Vermeersch also added two for the Lions.

 

Subiaco was first to hit the goals with Nelson converting a major just two minutes in. Claremont however would dominate much of the rest of the quarter with late goals from Ray Daniels and Clarke keeping the Subiaco side in touch. 

 

Claremont again had the ascendancy early in the second quarter as they built their lead, but two more goals to Clarke and another from Ainsworth just before half time reduced the margin to a point at the long break.

 

Subiaco was finally able to get some clean play and stamp their authority on the contest in the third quarter with Ainsworth and Matera instrumental as Subiaco took control. 

 

Despite a Claremont fightback, Subiaco kicked the pivotal goals of the last quarter including one by Josh Underwood after a strong contested mark with 10 minutes to go and withstood a tense final five minutes going on to record a nailbiting two point win.

 

GAME CHANGERS

 

YOUNG GUNS FIRE AT CRUCIAL TIMES

Despite each being just 18 years of age, Brayden Ainsworth and Kyron Hayden showed poise beyond their years during the tight match. It was Ainsworth who willed the Subiaco midfield during the second half while Hayden's touch of class entering inside 50 was telling during the fourth quarter. Both players showed why they are touted as potential AFL draftees later this year.

 

THE TACKLE TEST

As is the case with finals football, this game featured a battle of midfields and high tackle counts. Subiaco edged this statistical count by one, 83 to 82. Justin Joyce and James Garcia each laid game high eight tackles. Post-match coach Andrew Lockyer highlighted tackling as one of the areas the side will need to continue to work on should they want to progress through to a Grand final appearance. 

 

11 POINT SWING

Claremont had the chance to hit the front with a set-shot 20 metres out midway through the last quarter. After they missed this easy chance, Subiaco produced one of its best end to end passages of the game with Ryan Vermeersch on the end of the play to kick the goal that produced a crucial 11 point swing in a tight game.

 

IT WAS OVER WHEN

With just eight points separating the teams and five minutes remaining in the game, it was Subiaco's toughness around the contest and ability to be able to force repeat stoppages that was crucial to the win. Though Claremont scored a goal with under a minute to go, it was stoic defence that sealed the win.
