WRAP: Round 17 (2017) vs Claremont

 
Subiaco has stretched their winning streak to 14, making a winning return to the country town of Esperance with a 40-point win over Claremont.
 
In an even all round performance Subiaco extended their lead at every beak mixing ruthless attack on the contest with stout defence across the match.
 
The midfield battle was dominated by Subiaco’s prime movers with skipper Kyal Horsley and Adam Cockie leading from the front each collecting 27 possessions and putting their physical presence into the contest. Leigh Kitchin was the main possession winner on the ground with 32.
 
Defensively it was another strong Subiaco effort, as Aaron Heal ably led the defensive group. Declan Jackson did a good job quelling the influence of Beau Maister while Joel Latham equally did a good job in limiting Christopher Oakley.
 
Up forward Ben Sokol was the standout with four goals while Liam Ryan and Max Walters’ respective days were let down by inaccurate goalkicking finishing with a combined 2.7.  
 
It was another significant day as the club blooded another two club debutants as Tim Sutherland and Simon Parry each played their first league game in Subiaco colours. Sutherland in particular battled manfully against one of the WAFL’s premier ruckmen in Mitch Andrews holding his own for long passages.
 
The win was Subiaco’s third from three games held in Esperance as the Lions maintained a perfect winning record in the southern part of their country region.
 
Next week sees a blockbuster clash as Subiaco face a red hot Peel Thunder team in Mandurah.
 
GAME CHANGERS
 
LATE CHANGES
Scott Hancock and Jordan Lockyer were both late withdrawals from the side with Daniel Perkins and Declan Jackson joining Tim Sutherland, Simon Parry and Rowen Powell coming into the side. All five inclusions were even contributors in a strong team display from the Lions.
 
WINDY ESPERANCE
Players from both teams were treated with the typical blustery conditions of Esperance throughout Saturday’s game. Subiaco kicked with the aid of the breeze in the first quarter to help build an early lead and grimly defended in the second limiting Claremont’s advantage with the breeze. Arguably that second quarter defence was the catalyst of the Subiaco win.
 
SOKS ON
Ben Sokol’s day started well when he was gifted a double goal in the first quarter. On a day where the windy conditions made it tough for forwards, Sokol was the one forward who always looked dangerous finishing with four goals.
 
GAME BALL COLLECTION
For the second week in succession Adam Cockie collected the game ball that was on offer to the best on ground. After a slow start to 2017 coming off injury, Cockie has started to stamp his dominance in the Subiaco midfield with consecutive best on ground performances.
 
IT WAS OVER WHEN
With Claremont kicking with the aid of the breeze in the last quarter, the first goal of the last was always going to be crucial. Just a few minutes in, Ben Sokol snapped a ball toward goal out of congestion and Lachlan Delahunty was there on the goal line to soccer through the goal that effectively ended the contest.
