Bull­dogs maul Swans in pre­lim

SU­BI­ACO AWAIT FOR CHANCE AT GRAND FI­NAL BERTH

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

SOUTH Fre­man­tle are through to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal af­ter a big win over Swan Dis­tricts on Sun­day afternoon.

The Bull­dogs needed to bounce back af­ter a lack­lus­tre game against Peel Thun­der in the first week of the fi­nals and they did so in style, de­mol­ish­ing Swan SUP­PORTED BY LUX MO­TORS Dis­tricts 136-56.

It was all South Fre­man­tle in at­tack, the Bull­dogs kick­ing 17 of the last 20 goals in front of a ju­bi­lant home crowd.

Blaine John­son was deadly ac­cu­rate boot­ing 4.1, while team­mates Ti­mothy Kelly and Ben Saun­ders kicked three each.

Both Shane Hockey and Blaine John­son passed the 30-dis­posal mark, pick­ing up 34 and 32 touches re­spec­tively.

But it was not all smooth sailing for the Bull­dogs, with both John­son and Jar­rad Gar­lett re­ported.

The club is now one win away from a grand fi­nal match-up against Peel but must beat mi­nor pre­miers Su­bi­aco in Leed­erville this Sun­day to get there.

South Fre­man­tle’s re­serves and East Fre­man­tle’s colts are through to the grand fi­nal af­ter dis­pos­ing of Su­bi­aco and Clare­mont re­spec­tively in their fi­nals.
