Uni gives les­son to Scar­bor­ough

Canning Gazette - - SPORT -

UNIVER­SITY showed last year’s premier’s Scar­bor­ough hold no fear to them when they de­feated them for the sec­ond time in three weeks to progress to the Perth Foot­ball League A Grade grand fi­nal.

Most of the match was an arm wres­tle but Univer­sity was able to blow the game open in the fi­nal term to record a con­vinc­ing 30-point vic­tory, 11.8 (74) to 6.8 (44).

Only one point sep­a­rated the two teams at quar­ter-time. The tight bat­tle con­tin­ued with just three goals in to­tal scored in a tight sec­ond quar­ter, Univer­sity lead­ing by five at the long change.

Univer­sity took the as­cen­dency in the last term, boot­ing five goals to one and se­cur­ing a week off to re­fresh for the big game.

Sean Trom­betta was again im­pres­sive for Univer­sity with four goals, while Marc Re bat­tled hard to score three for Scar­bor­ough.

Meet­ing Scar­bor­ough in the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal will be Fre­man­tle CBC, who came out fir­ing with a dev­as­tat­ing first quar­ter to de­feat North Fre­man­tle by 53 points.

A six-goal open­ing term by CBC set the tone for the day and North Freo had no an­swer, fin­ish­ing with just three goals for the day, two of them in the fi­nal quar­ter.

The 11.11 (77) to 3.6 (24) vic­tory was a solid hit-out for CBC be­fore this week’s pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal at Milling­ton Re­serve.

In B Grade, Ni­chols Ga­jew­ski kicked seven goals to see Col­le­gians home by 35 points over West Coast to meet the pow­er­ful Curtin Uni Wes­ley side in this week’s grand fi­nal at Bassendean Oval. The Perth Footy Live team will cover this game on Satur­day on Footy Ra­dio and Com­mu­nity News Face­book pages.

In a spe­cial game with a large crowd at Pat Goodridge Re­serve in Wem­b­ley, Cool­binia won its fifth con­sec­u­tive pre­mier­ship in the In­te­grated com­pe­ti­tion with a solid win over Willetton, 8.11 (59) to 3.3 (21).
