Sec­ond half kills De­mons

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

IT was a fa­mil­iar story at Lath­lain Park on Satur­day, with Perth un­able to hold on to a 33-point lead, with Swan Districts kick­ing six goals to two af­ter half-time to win by seven points and re­main in fourth po­si­tion on the WAFL lad­der.

Perth had a dis­as­trous sec­ond half in each of the past two games, but the starts had not been the prob­lem and that was again the case.

In fact, the De­mons started on fire, with three goals in the open­ing 10 min­utes from McFarlane, Byrne and Scot­ney.

Perth again kicked the first two goals of the sec­ond term to lead by 33 points af­ter John­son and Colledge kicked truly. Swans did man­age to steady be­fore half-time with the last three goals thanks to Ben­nell, Ste­wart and No­ble to trail at the long break by 15 points.

The last thing Perth needed was to con­cede the first goal af­ter half-time but that’s what hap­pened when Cary kicked truly

By the time he added a sec­ond and Nuich an­other, Swans were in front.
