Hard-fought match not enough to claim win

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

PERTH did ev­ery­thing right but bring up a win in a hard­fought match against Peel, which they lost by five points in the dy­ing sec­onds at Lath­lain Park on Satur­day.

Perth can prob­a­bly blame their in­ac­cu­racy in front of goal for cost­ing them victory, es­pe­cially in the first half. The fi­nal score was Peel (11.7) 73 to Perth (9.14) 68.

and Bate­man played their best games for the club for some time. Ai­dan Tropi­ano was again out­stand­ing, pick­ing up 35 touches and must be an early front-run­ner for the San­dover Medal.

Perth, lead­ing by seven points at three­quar­ter time, kicked 4.1 in the last term and when Brett Wolfenden and O’Sul­li­van kicked cru­cial ma­jors, it ap­peared the Demons were home.
