The Subi Colts have pulled off a clinical 30 point win against South Fremantle to re-invigorate their 2013 season.
Entering the game as underdogs against third placed South Fremantle, the Lions came out of the blocks firing kicking five goals to zero in the first term to shock the favourites.
Despite a spirited fight back from the red and white in the second the Colts managed to maintain a three goal buffer for the entire game.
Ryan Vermeesch was a revelation in the forward line kicking six of the Lions majors to contribute to the Lions sterling 69% accuracy rate.
Andrew Vawser arguably had his best game as a Lion with 23 disposals and 11 marks, as the midfielder channelled most of Subi’s play through the middle.
Has been playing a defensive midfielder role in the early portions of the season but was given more freedom by coach Steve Armstrong today. This played well into the Lions hands as Vawser was able to move un-detected into space on numerous occasions to rack up 11 marks and a lot of run through the middle.
Warwick-Greenwood lad Connor Wilkinson had his best game of 2013 with 18 disposals and five marks. Really stood up against a well-respected South Fremantle midfield.
Hasn’t been at his usual best so far in 2013 but looks to be gaining momentum. Grace’s competitiveness today was fantastic and his ability to take a leading mark and hold the ball is crucial to Subiaco’s game plan. Two cheeky goals didn’t hurt his performance either.
RUCK AND ROLL:
Armstrong brought in three ruckmen against the Bulldogs and it turned into a master stroke. Adam Creeper took the majority of the contests and really flourished to record 23 of Subi’s 39 hit-outs.
