While the WAWFL League competition may have had the week off, the reserves were still going at it in the fourth round.
Despite keeping the game close, Peel Thunderbirds eventually went down to Claremont by nine points. Conditions made the game a tight contest but it was Claremont that managed to hold the lead come the final siren at Bendigo Bank Stadium.
An 38-1 first half for Swan Districts set the tone of the game as the Swans ran out very comfortable 73-point winners over East Fremantle. Despite the Sharks kicking their only two goals in the final quarter, Swan Districts went from strength to strength in an impressive four-quarter display that keeps them in touch with South Fremantle, Mt Lawley and Coastal Titans on the ladder early in the year.
The footy quickly became hard to control in a low-scoring contest between Mt Lawley and Joondalup with the visitors running out 11-point winners. With no goals scored in the second half for either team, the game was a matter of who could get in front early and stay there, and thanks to goals from Kristina Oxley and Julie Devereux and excellent showings from Stacylee Leach and Michelle Smith, the battle of the Falcons was won by Joondalup.
SNESA continued its football education the hard way as the Coastal Titans kepts their perfect winning record for the season in tact with a 153-point demolishing of the Angles. Although against developing opposition, Danielle Fagents’ 11 goals shouldn’t go without mention as her goal tally from three games this year increases to 16. Sara Lewis also upped her count to 12 goals for the year with two majors while Nicole Griffin bagged two of her own, her first goals of the season.
