PEEL Thun­der coach Cameron Shep­hard said his team had an OK first quar­ter, play­ers fell asleep in the mid­dle and then en­joyed a very good last quar­ter.

The way the play­ers ral­lied en­sured their vic­tory against East Fre­man­tle.

“They led in the third quar­ter by five or six goals,” Shep­hard said.

“We went to work to gain the as­cen­dancy in the ruck.

“We were ag­gres­sive and had an at­tack­ing style.

“We got the re­wards and kicked seven goals in the last quar­ter. “We got over the line.” Shep­hard said it would be an in­ter­est­ing game on Satur­day when Peel take on South Fre­man­tle.

“We play South Freo in the last game and the fol­low­ing week play them again in the first qual­i­fy­ing round,” he said.

“We will pre­pare and hope we don’t get any in­juries.”

Shep­hard con­ceded that Peel have a bit of work to do if they were to make the grand fi­nal and win the premiership.

“We’ve got a chance,” he said.
