The Colts slumped to their second straight loss as they were beaten by an undefeated Claremont on Saturday afternoon.

Despite kicking the opening goal and there being passages of play that were promising, the Tigers had complete control of the contest throughout as they came away winners 12.13 (85) to 8.10 (58)

The Colts were buoyed this week by the return of Isiah Winder, fresh from his League Debut last week and he didn’t disappoint, with 27 disposals, 11 contested, 5 tackles, 4 inside 50’s, 7 score involvements and a goal. Unfortunately, it was again left to too few, with only 8 players getting 12 or more disposals. 

15 Tigers managed to surpass 12 disposals and they also managed to have 8 unique goal kickers, spreading the load offensively while comprehensively winning the overall disposal count by 45 and the contested ball count by 25.

Once again David Yaccob put in a superb performance generating attacks from the back half with 18 disposals at 78% efficiency, with 5 rebound 50’s and 4 score involvements. Roy George (15 Disposals, 11 Contested, 6 Tackles) and Calvin Stone (11 Disposals, 6 Intercept Marks, 4 Tackles, 4 Rebound 50’s) were also strong performers in the back half.

Kobe Farmer and Luke Polson both kicked 2 for the afternoon, while Cole Agnew, Isiah Winder, Jaxon Egan and Jackson Broadbent in his first Colts outing all added singles.

The final two undefeated sides of the Rogers Cup competition met on Sunday afternoon at Revo Fitness Stadium.

In torrential conditions, the Thunder were given an almighty scare, trailing at every change but managed to overcome a 3 point deficit at three-quarter-time to escape with a 9-point victory.

Jordain Thompson, Sharlize Shelley and Kayleesha Ugle each managed to get on the scoresheet as the Thunder firmly cemented themselves as the team to beat once again in 2020.

In the afternoon game the WAFLW League side backed up last week’s win against the reigning premiers by knocking off and leapfrogging 2nd placed Claremont on their home deck.

The Thunder opened the scoring with a goal to Kira Phillips, 1 of her 2 goals for the afternoon that now sees her well ahead as the competitions leading goal kicker with 9 now for the season.

Phillips added another in the second term along with Bailey Molloy, but unfortunately for the spectacle that’s where the scoring stopped.

On a day with heavy rain forecasted, it was amazingly dry until the closing stages of the final term. It was still very wet and slippery under foot however and in the second half the game turned into a war of attrition as both sides were unable to put the ball through the large opening. 

Both sides had chances in the last but the Thunder were able to hang on to record their 3rd win of the year.

Ebony Bilcich was again important, Ella Roberts on her League debut was excellent and found plenty of the ball, Chloe Wrigley, Abby Barnden, Kira Phillips, Tanisha Anderson and Ebony Dowson all played well in their roles.

The girls front up this Saturday with another big test, against top of the table and undefeated Subiaco.
