WRAP: Round 12 (2017) at Perth

 
The Subiaco Lions have won 10 in a row with a 75-point belting of Perth at Lathlain Oval.

Clancy Wheeler was dominant with five goals, Leigh Kitchin had 33 touches and captain Kyal Horsley collected 22 and kicked two goals.

Young midfield Max Walters continues to impress with 16 disposals and three goals against the Dees.

Subiaco had a young back line with Adam Creeper making his league debut in the absence of Aaron Heal. Daniel Perkins stepped up for his first league win alongside Creeper with the late exclusion of Corey Adamson.

Youngster Michael Braut got proceedings underway with his first league goal. The Demons proceeded to fight back through Callum Papertalk who kicked three in an inspired spell for the home-side. Liam Baker goaled and a Scott Hancock put Subi in the lead. The Lions were up by five at quarter time.

The Lions rectified a couple of issues from the first period and did it with significant force in the second term. An onslaught of eight goals to the Demons one took the wind out of the contest. Horsley, Delahunty and Sokol were prominent in the barrage. Subi led by 49 at half-time.

Subi didn’t relinquish their pressure in the third with Clancy Wheelers 3rd and Max Walters 2nd stretching the difference beyond 50. Wheeler added another to further demoralise the Demons shortly after. Subi were up by 74 at three quarter time.

The last quarter had little relevance to the game but Jarrad Schofield and the coaching staff would have been pleased with how the Lions ran it out. Perth had their best quarter kicking five but the Lions matched them to run out a 75-point win.

GAME CHANGERS

WHEELER PROVIDES BIG TARGET
 
Subiaco’s dual premiership forward Clancy Wheeler was electric in the forward line for the Lions and the midfielders helped the big man with some crisp inside 50 deliveries. The run and carry of Kitchin, Horsley, Cockie and Hancock opened the Demons up and they continually teed up Wheeler. The Esperance gun slotted 5.2 from 15 disposals.

SUBI CRUISE CONTROL
 
The first quarter was a challenge for the Lions but they produced some of the best ball movement of season 2017 in the second term. Subi moved the ball well in perfect conditions at Lathlain Oval and shredded Perth 8 goals to 1 in the second quarter. At times, it looked like Subiaco were running a training drill and they will look to build on the big Round 12 win with confidence.

SUBI STOKED ON CREEPER

20-year-old Adam Creeper came in for his debut league game and thoroughly rose to the occasion. Creeper played a role in the ruck and was utilised as a key defender at times. Creeper finished with 15 disposals and 41 hit-outs. His ruck work was a key element in the clearance game for Subiaco.  
 
WINNING STREAK RECORDS

Subiaco’s win against the Demons makes it 10 in a row for the Lions with the current streak sitting 5th on the all-time list.  The 2017 Maroons are only just behind the 11-game runs in 2015 and 2008, the 13-game tally in 2007 & the 19-game run provided by the 2006 side. If Subiaco keep the foot on the pedal they could make history.
 
THE GAME WAS WON WHEN: 

Leigh Kitchin nailed a lazer on the run at the end of the second quarter. The Lions crushed the Demons with one very dominant quarter of football.

COLTS RECAP:
 
The Subiaco Colts joined the winners’ list after a commanding 49-point victory over Perth at Lathlain Park on Saturday morning.
 
It was the Colts’ first victory since round 9 when they overcame South Fremantle by four points, and their sixth overall for 2017.
 
Tristan Hobley was superb for the Lions in the midfield. The 2016 WA U16s representative finished with 28 possessions (14 contested), six marks, six inside 50s, four clearances, three tackles and a goal, in a dominant outing.
 
He was well supported by Tom Edwards-Baldwin (24 possessions – 15 contested – five clearances, three inside 50s and a goal), and Luke Foley (22 possessions – 10 contested – seven inside 50s and four clearances) in the midfield.
 
Up forward Christian Martin always provided a presence and ended up with four goals from 15 possessions. He also took eight marks, recorded six inside 50s and laid three tackles.
 
Che Wyatt was the other multiple goalscorer with two goals, while Wil Hickmott, Mach Deng, Jordan Faraone, Jake Halligan, Hobley and Edwards-Baldwin all kicked one goal each.
 
It was Subiaco’s Christian Martin who kicked the first goal of the game. This came about after he was awarded a free kick for being held onto, and then receiving a 50 metre penalty. In the 17th minute he kicked his second after taking a strong contested mark despite front-on pressure. He went back and coolly slotted his set shot from the boundary. Two minutes later, Tristan Hobley snapped through Subiaco’s third goal. However, a few moments later, Perth’s Trent Simpson took a strong pack mark and then duly converted to score Perth’s first goal. But Subiaco responded instantly when Mach Deng was able to snap out of a pack to give the Lions a 23-point advantage going into quarter-time.
 
In the second quarter, Che Wyatt got the Lions off to the perfect start when he kicked his first goal of the game in the fifth minute. It took another 13 minutes for the Lions to kick their second goal of the quarter. It came about after Hobley handballed to Wil Hickmott who was able to navigate his way through traffic and convert. A few moments later, Jake Halligan nailed his set shot from 40 metres, but Alan Narkle was able to kick one for the Demons in the final moments of the quarter.
 
In the opening minutes of the third quarter, Josh Leunig laid a bone-crunching tackle inside Subiaco’s forward 50. The ball then spilled out to Jordan Faraone who snapped through his first goal of the game. Perth were dominating the quarter, but it took until the 15th minute for them to register a goal, when Narkle kicked his second. A few minutes later, the Lions made the Demons pay when they went coast-to-coast, which ultimately saw Che Wyatt nail his second, and soon after Martin kicked his third goal from a set shot, 45 metres out.
 
Perth’s Leslie Rossiter kicked the first goal of the final quarter, but Tom Edwards-Baldwin was able to score the instant response for the Lions. Narkle and Regan Flaherty kicked goals for the Demons, but in the final minutes Martin kicked his fourth, giving the Lions a 49-point victory. 
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
MARTIN’S RESPONSE
 
After a quiet couple of weeks, spearhead Christian Martin was at his absolute best. He finished 15 possessions, eight marks, six inside 50s and four goals, in a commanding performance. He now sits equal top of the WAFL Colts’ Leading Goalkicker Award with 18 for the year.
 
TACKLING LIONS
 
For the fourth consecutive week, Subiaco won the tackle count, this time 40-39. This was strongly led by Liam Hickmott (five tackles) and Kyle Stainsby (four tackles). With an emphasis on pressure, the Colts are heading in the right direction.
 
GRUNT PROVIDED BY EDWARDS-BALDWIN
 
The Lions also won the contested possession count (147-125) and the clearances (33-29) highlighting their desire to win the hard ball. Young gun Tom Edwards-Baldwin led the charge in both categories with 15 contested possessions and five clearances, in a performance that really highlighted his grunt work.
 
THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN
 
Christian Martin kicked his third goal of the game in the dying stages of the third quarter. It ended the Demons’ momentum and any thought of a miraculous comeback was over.
   
SUBIACO                         4.5        7.10      10.12     12.17       (89)
PERTH                              1.0        2.1        3.4         6.4          (40)
 
Goals; 4 C. Martin, 2 C. Wyatt, 1 W. Hickmott, T. Hobley, J. Faraone, T. Edwards-Baldwin, J. Halligan, M. Deng
 
Best; T. Edwards-Baldwin, L. Foley, T. Hobley, K. Stainsby, C. Martin
