Scar­bor­ough in shock exit

Canning Gazette - - SPORT -

LAST year’s Perth Foot­ball League pre­miers Scar­bor­ough have made a shock exit from the A grade fi­nals after a four-goal loss to Fre­man­tle CBC.

This fol­lows their loss to Uni­ver­sity in the sec­ond semi-fi­nal, mean­ing they are out in straight sets after dom­i­nat­ing the com­pe­ti­tion all year.

Fre­man­tle got off to a bet­ter start in the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal, scor­ing two first-quar­ter goals and hold­ing Scar­bor­ough to just three points.

It was the sec­ond term that changed the game, with the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons man­ag­ing only one goal to half-time, while Fre­man­tle kicked five sec­ond-quar­ter goals to take a 37-point lead into the long break.

Even outscor­ing Fre­man­tle in the fi­nal term they could only nar­row the mar­gin to 24 points, 10.12 (72) to 7.6 (48).

Fre­man­tle CBC now meet Uni­ver­sity at Steel Blue Oval, Bassendean, on Satur­day, which will be on Footy Ra­dio and Com­mu­nity News Face­book pages.

In B grade, Curtin Uni Wes­ley dom­i­nated in their match with Col­le­gians, win­ning by 38 points.

Curtin Uni Wes­ley’s re­serves side also won their grand fi­nal.

In the other grades, premier­ship win­ners were Bassendean (C1), Quinns District (C2), Jan­dakot (C3) and Co­bras in C4. D1 grade was a flag to Uni­ver­sity, Fre­man­tle CBC scraped home by a point in E1, and For­rest­field and Carlisle took out the re­main­ing E Grade pre­mier­ships.
