ROUND 22 of the 2017 WAFL sea­son could hardly have pro­duced any more fas­ci­nat­ing re­sults, set­ting up an ex­cit­ing last round with Swan Dis­tricts, East Perth, West Perth and Clare­mont all fight­ing over the last two fi­nals places. Swan Dis­tricts missed a chance to guar­an­tee its place in the WAFL fi­nals, with Clare­mont prov­ing too strong at Bassendean Oval, win­ning 13.17 (95) to 11.5 (71). West Perth re­main a fi­nals chance de­spite its week­end loss to Su­bi­aco, and a win against Clare­mont at Clare­mont Oval on Satur­day will likely be enough if both or ei­ther East Perth and Swan Dis­tricts lose at the same time. IT turned out the be the end of the sea­son for all grades at Kala­munda Cougars Foot­ball Club on Satur­day. The A-grade league team was un­able to se­cure a win and the E1s fell just short of Swan Dis­tricts in their elim­i­na­tion fi­nal. On a brighter note, the colts won their third game of the year 8.5 (53) to 6.10 (46) and in do­ing so handed Scar­bor­ough the wooden spoon. The A re­serves again came up against a fi­nals-bound team; they fought hard all day but were out­played, go­ing down 3.7 (25) to 9.6 (60). Know­ing they needed a win to keep their slim fi­nals chance alive, the A-grade league team didn't get the start they were af­ter, be­ing four goals down at quar­ter time. The sec­ond quar­ter was fairly even but in the third Scar­bor­ough kicked away to lead by eight goals. In the fi­nal quar­ter, the Cougars ral­lied but fell short, los­ing 6.8 (48) to 10.10 (70). The E1s trav­elled to Ro­ley­stone as they hosted the first week of fi­nals at Cross Park. The Cougars led the ma­jor­ity of the game un­til a last quar­ter surge from Swan Dis­tricts got them over the line, win­ning 9.10 (64) to 9.6 (60). The E1s play­ers had at least an­other game in them but that's fi­nals foot­ball; they will again push for fi­nals foot­ball next year.
