Spoon looms for Sharks

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

EAST Fre­man­tle have slipped back into the wooden spoon po­si­tion af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing 13-point loss to Peel Thun­der.

The Sharks were in the box seat at three-quar­ter time, hav­ing kept their op­po­nents to just three goals to lead 53-22, but a dis­mal fourth quar­ter both in at­tack and de­fence saw the Sharks kick just two be­hinds to the Thun­der’s 7.4.

East Fre­man­tle even­tu­ally went down 68-55.

Thomas Ben­nett and Jamie McNa­mara kicked two goals each, while

RUGBY UNION SUP­PORTED BY LUX MO­TORS Cameron Eard­ley led the dis­pos­als with 29. Com­pound­ing the re­sult was Perth’s win over East Perth, which al­lowed them to leapfrog East Fre­man­tle into eighth and slide the Sharks back on to the bot­tom of the ladder with just one game to go. South Fre­man­tle had the bye. They play Peel Thun­der at Rush­ton Park and East Fre­man­tle play Swan Dis­tricts at Bassendean Oval on Au­gust 26 in the fi­nal round of the WAFL sea­son.

Bounce down for both games is at 2.15pm.
