Bull­dogs and Sharks both win

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

SUP­PORTED BY LUX MO­TORS SOUTH Fre­man­tle tuned up for the WAFL fi­nals with a con­vinc­ing vic­tory and East Fre­man­tle dodged the wooden spoon with a big win at the week­end.

Ma­son Shaw booted four goals to guide the Bull­dogs to a 34-point win over Peel at Rush­ton Park on Satur­day.

The 18.12 (120) to 12.14 (86) re­sult had no im­pact on the lad­der though, with the top three po­si­tions locked in prior to round 23.

The second-placed Bull­dogs will host the Thun­der (third) this week at home in a qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal.

Cross-town ri­vals East Fre­man­tle en­sured they did not fin­ish in last po­si­tion after a 61-point win over fi­nals-bound Swan Dis­tricts at Bassendean Oval. It was their third win for the sea­son.

Matthew Wat­son and Ryan Am­brose kicked three goals each and Sean Han­son was busy with 32 dis­pos­als, as the Sharks fin­ished the year with a 20.10 (130) to 10.9 (69) re­sult.

The re­tir­ing Andrew Stephen gath­ered 17 dis­pos­als and kicked one goal.
