Bright start for Perth but devil in de­tail

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

PERTH again started strongly and fought hard but was over­whelmed in the end by Su­bi­aco, who took out a 23point win in the twi­light round 2 fix­ture at Leed­erville Oval on Satur­day.

Both the Lions and De­mons were com­ing off round 1 losses and it was Perth who started the bet­ter, much like last week.

A week ago against Swan Dis­tricts, the De­mons piled on eight firstquar­ter goals be­fore be­ing run over to lose by 12 points.

It was not quite as dra­matic this week, but Perth still man­aged to lead Su­bi­aco by four points at quar­ter-time and by eight at half-time.

How­ever, formidable Su­bi­aco has played in the past three WAFL grand fi­nals for two pre­mier­ships.

The Lions re­sponded with six goals to two in the third quar­ter to set up the even­tual 13.12 (90) to 10.7 (67) vic­tory.
