The WAFL had two Good Friday games and they didn’t turn out too good for Peel and East Perth.
It was tight at Rushton Park but East Fremantle broke away in the third quarter and held on to beat Peel by 18 points.
Brock O’Brien and Rory O’Brien were dominant against their old team, Andrew Stephen again showed he’s one of the best defenders in the competition, tall forward Jack Perham was a constant threat and Cameron Eardley had one of his best games at senior level.
Tom Sheridan was in brilliant form for Peel, Brendan Jones and Anthony Morabito gave their forwards plenty of chances, Craig Moller kicked three goals and Alex Silvagni marked well in defence. Peel’s first win is yet to come.
East Fremantle 12.14 (86) Peel 10.8 (68)
It was a mathematicians’ delight at Leederville in the twilight game. Subiaco kicked six goals in the first quarter followed by two, two and six. East Perth’s quarter by quarter goal tally was none, six, six and none. So after surrendering a big lead Subiaco won by a neat four goals.
George Hampson was the hero for the Lions kicking five goals in addition to his usual hard and creative work, Jason Bristow also battled hard and Matthew Boland kicked four goals.
Scott Lycett led East Perth’s fightback and kicked five goals and Craig Wulff kicked two in another excellent display. The Royals are not dominating the competition.
Subiaco 16.10 (106) East Perth 12.10 (82)
