Sharks put Dogs out of colts final
EAST Fremantle snatched fourth spot on the WAFL colts ladder off arch-rivals South Fremantle with a 10point win over Swan Districts at New Choice Homes Park on Sunday.
There was a three-way battle for the last spot in the top four with the Sharks, Bulldogs and Perth in the hunt.
South Fremantle were in fourth place for a touch under 24 hours after they knocked off the Demons by 35 points on Saturday, but a final-quarter fightback from East Fremantle on Sunday was enough to get the position back.
The Sharks booted two goals to none in the final term to overcome a fourpoint three-quarter time deficit and prevail 7.8 (50) to 5.10 (40).
Captain and Fremantle Next Generation Academy talent Keanu Haddow was outstanding down back with 30 possessions and seven marks, Josh Browne (30 disposals and five inside 50s) impressed in the midfield, 15-year-old Jed Hagan continued his hot form and draft fancy Brandon Walker also had an impact.
Finn Gorringe stepped up in gun midfielder Jack Carroll’s injury absence, moving from his usual spot across half-back.
The result has earned East Fremantle a shot at West Perth in a do-or-die final at Joondalup this Sunday at 8.30am.
