Ea­gles and Ram­blers ones to beat

Midwest Times - - SPORT - Justin Fris

Head­ing into the fi­nal stretch of the 2017 Gas­coyne Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion sea­son, it ap­pears the pre­mier­ship is seem­ingly Ex­mouth’s to lose.

Although fac­ing stiffer com­pe­ti­tion from Ram­blers this sea­son, the Ea­gles ap­pear to be in cruise con­trol at the top of the ta­ble.

Ex­mouth Ea­gles (First)

Con­tin­ued where they left off from last sea­son, with their only de­feat com­ing in round 7 against Ram­blers at Premier Oval. Stacked across ev­ery line, with Billy Timewell, Chase Faxon and Aar­son Sheen hav­ing wonderful sea­sons.

High­est score — 31.23 (209) v Gas­coyne (2.0 12), Round 2

Low­est score — 6.3 (39) v Ram­blers (18.13 121), Round 7

Ram­blers (Sec­ond)

The Tigers have im­proved re­mark­ably this sea­son, af­ter a for­get­table 2016. Have only lost twice so far in 2017, both to Ex­mouth. Brett By­ron has been handy up for­ward, while Yar­ren Raven, Gi­u­liano Condo and Adam Smart con­tinue to do good things.

High­est score — 32.18 (210) v War­riors (5.5 35), Round 8

Low­est score — 7.2 (44) v Ex­mouth (19.9 123), Round 1

War­riors (Third)

Reg­u­larly the enigma of the Gas­coyne Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion, War­riors have gone off the boil af­ter making a sat­is­fac­tory start to the 2017 sea­son.

Haven’t got close to com­pet­i­tively match­ing the Ea­gles or Tigers for lengthy pe­ri­ods in a game. High­est score — 23.13 (151) v Gas­coyne (9.8 62), Round 10 Low­est score — 1.4 (10) v Ex­mouth (23.10 148), Round 3

Gas­coyne (Fourth)

It’s been a lean year for the Hawks at league level, with only one win for the year. Things are rosier for the club at colts and nip­pers level. High­est score — 11.12 (78) v War­riors (9.9 (63), Round 7 Low­est score — 1.3 (9) v Ram­blers (24.33 177), Round 3
