Round 6 Review

SWANS 10.3.63 def ROYALS 9.6.60

Swan Districts gave themselves a shot of avoiding the wooden spoon when they defeated East Perth by three points. The Swans scored four goals to one in the first quarter but the Royals bounced back to get within 10 points at half-time. Both teams could only manage one goal in the third term but East Perth got some quick goals on the board and managed to snatch the lead during the last quarter. The Swans were not to be denied however and regained the lead and hung on to win by three points.
Ben Moncrieff finished the match with five goals and Elyse Hudson scored four for the winners while Ricky Cox (four goals) and Eamon Guilfoile (three) were the major scorers for East Perth.

ROYALS 11.5.71 def LIONS 3.6.24
East Perth bounced back from their defeat against Swan Districts to overwhelm Subiaco by 47 points. After opening up a 16-point lead at quarter-time, the Royals went on a scoring blitz, piling on 6.5 to 1.4 for the rest of the match and keeping the Lions to just 1.1 after half-time.
The midfield pairing of Ricky Cox and Thomas McHugh consistently got the ball out of the centre and provided strong delivery to their forwards. In addition, they were quicker to the loose ball and prevented the Lions from sending the ball into their forward line.
Thomas McHugh (eight goals) was the leading goal scorer for East Perth, while Derek Mott (two) and Ryan Zilioli contributed majors for Subiaco.

SWANS 8.3.51 def LIONS 2.4.16
Swan Districts recorded their fifth win for the season – and ensured that all three clubs were equal on the ladder in the process – when they defeated Subiaco by 35 points. Playing their second successive match, the Lions were ambushed by the Swans in the first quarter, conceding four goals and trailing by 20 points after seven minutes. In a willing contest at times, Swan Districts played better football and were able to convert their play into scores more effectively than the Lions.
At three-quarter time, the Swans led 8.3.51 to Subiaco’s 2.4.16 when play was called off early due to the fact that play had gone over time and the waiting basketballers were keen to use the court.
Ben Moncrieff scored four goals and Elyse Hudson and Angus Johnston both finished with two while Mark Daniels and Derek Mott were the Subiaco goal scorers on a night to forget for the Lions.
SWAN DISTRICTS 4.2 6.2 8.3.51
SUBIACO 1.0 2.3 2.4.16
Swan Districts: Moncrieff 4, Hudson 2, Johnston 2.
Subiaco: Daniles 1, Mott 1.
UMPIRE: Brett Dunkin.
