Falcons put end to losing run with dominant win
PERTH and West Perth both entered their clash at Lathlain Park on Saturday on losing runs and needing to win for vastly different reasons.
Once again, the Demons started strongly, but the Falcons kicked 15 goals to seven after quartertime to win 18.18 (126) to 11.7 (73), with Tyler Keitel booting seven goals, Nick Rodda six and Shane Nelson amassing 51 possessions, 11 clearances, nine inside 50s, eight marks and five tackles.
It ended a four-game losing run for West Perth and improves them to an 8-7 record to be two games clear in fifth spot.
It was a ninth-straight loss for Perth who slipped to bottom spot on percentage.
