Wednesday, June 5, 2024 - 10:22 AM by Harrison Page

The Subiaco Women’s 3-game winning streak ended on Saturday with a crushing 2-point loss to South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

A closely contested match for the majority of playtime, with the margin at breaks never exceeding two goals, South Fremantle took the lead for the first time during the final term.

“We had a really good balance for the duration of the game, and controlled our contest method,” Coach Baker Dennemen said. “But unfortunately, when good teams get a little bit of momentum, they hurt us.”

Aimee Schmidt dragged everyone to the edge of their seats when her goal tied the game with only 3 minutes remaining. Unfortunately, two behinds for the Bulldogs sealed a close victory for the home team.

Baker, however, was adamant that there was good news to come from the game.

“We showed off our continued ability to compete and be a force to reckon with around the ball. The girls gave their absolute all throughout the duration of the game on Saturday.”

Krstel Petrevski was a highlight of Subiaco’s performance, garnering 29 disposals; a career best.

Eva Popovsky also made waves defensively, contributing to the scrappy contest with 13 tackles.

“When we moved the ball with authority, we looked good and we'll look to continue this throughout the next few weeks,” Baker said, his mind already wandering to the upcoming clash with Claremont on Saturday at Sullivan Logistics Stadium

“Claremont are a class outfit, but we feel if we can bring the heat around the ball, we put ourselves in the best position to be successful at the end of the day.”

The Rogers saw more success at Fremantle, with an 11-point victory over the Bulldogs and a final quarter comeback worth bragging about.
