The Colts have been humbled by a 49 point loss against a disciplined Tigers outfit at Claremont oval to end their four game winning streak.
The Lions struggled to find their rhythm against the undefeated Claremont side who kept the visitors to their lowest score of the season.
The usually deadly Lions forward line struggled with the Tigers pressure all day to record a miserly four goals for the day, with an accuracy rating of 28.6%.
Joshua Deluca was the shining light on a dark day with 25 and disposals and five tackles as he gathers momentum in 2013.
Although every coach hates to make excuses for a loss; Subiaco were missing a handful of their key contributors against Claremont. Without Max Walters, Hayden Kennedy, Declan Jackson, Michael Wood and Ryan Vermeersch the Lions fielded a relatively inexperienced side; however Armstrong would be pleased with the effort his young chargers displayed. Subiaco were equally as oppressive with their intensity through portions, but failed to match it on the scoreboard.
Joshua Deluca has been really impressive over the last few weeks. Today was probably his most promising performance, standing up in a losing side against quality opposition to give the Lions a fighting chance. Recorded 25 disposals, five tackles and a goal to lead by example.
SECOND QUARTER BLUES:
The second loomed as an extremely important quarter in the context of the game. The Lions wrangled the momentum off Claremont midway through the second to control the game, but couldn’t put it on the scoreboard kicking one goal and eight behinds. In the end this would cost the Lions as the Tigers shot away with four majors in the quarter to take a 25 point lead into half-time
