Round one win­ners

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

IT was the per­fect start to the sea­son for Fre­man­tle’s two WAFL teams, with both notch­ing up wins in their open­ing games.

Tak­ing on last year’s grand fi­nal­ists, South Fre­man­tle recorded a com­fort­able 35-point home win over West Perth.

The Bull­dogs led at ev­ery change, Ash­ton Hams and Brendan Ver­rier un­stop­pable col­lec­ti­ing 34 and 29 dis­pos­als apiece while Ben Saun­ders, Ma­son Shaw, Haiden Schloithe and Zachary Strom scored nine goals be­tween them.

On the other side of town, East Fre­man­tle shook off a dis­ap­point­ing 2015 to smash Swan Dis­tricts by 49 points.

The whole-team af­fair saw 12 dif­fer­ent play­ers share the 16 goals, Brett Peake, Jesse Crich­ton, Tim Bris­tow and James Bris­tow the only play­ers to kick mul­ti­ple goals. Liam An­thony, Cameron Eard­ley and Sean Hen­son dom­i­nated, all col­lect­ing more than 30 pos­ses­sions.

Both teams next play on Satur­day af­ter­noon, East Fre­man­tle tak­ing on Peel in Man­durah while South Fre­man­tle plays Swan Dis­tricts in Bassendean.
