Sharks put Dogs out of colts fi­nal

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT - Jor­dan McAr­dle

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.
