Round 3 Match Report

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 1:03 PM

Less scoring shots, less disposals, less hit-outs, less free kicks, less inside 50’s but the most important statistic, accuracy proved the difference as Subiaco posted their second win of the season, 10.9 (69) to West Perth 8.17 (65). 

Coach Beau Wardman uses the word “resilience” for the four-point win. 

“We played far from our best football but when we connected and played selflessly, we were able to show improved conversion with our forwards looking dangerous,” he said post-game. 

A four-point win at Sullivan Logistics Stadium over the Falcons, important with a cluster of clubs already clamouring for ladder position. Just three rounds in and no team remains unbeaten with six clubs with a 2-1 record. 

He may have changed jumper numbers, but former skipper Leigh Kitchin has not changed his attack on the footy and was key to the winning performance, pumping the ball inside forward 50 eight times (almost 25%) of the team's entries.  

Down back Gaelen Savigni and Henry Berenger held firm, Wil Hickmott was back to his best, Jack Mayo continues to prove a key focal point up forward, while ruckman Kody Eaton was undersized, he did not stop competing and is this week’s “unsung hero”. 

The Reserves smashed West Perth by a whopping 111 points, Jordan Faraone slotting six straight and Jordan Snadden and Rylie Morgan amassed plenty of the ball. 

The Colts with four last quarter goals proved too strong for the visitors to get home by 16 points to notch their second win of the season.  

And a gutsy effort from in the WAFLW, to just fall short against the unbeaten and powerful Claremont.
