State Game Wrap: Tiger Trio Help Black Swans Create History

Monday, May 29, 2017 - 12:23 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Jack Bradshaw, Jye Bolton and Mitch Andrews all played pivotal roles in Western Australia’s drought-breaking 63-point thumping of Victoria at North Port Oval last Saturday.

With former Claremont coach Michael Broadbridge coaching the team, the Black Swans slammed on 17 goals to seven after quarter-time to prevail 20.14 (134) to 10.11 (71) and record their first win against Victoria in Melbourne.

The win followed victories against Tasmania, the SANFL, NEAFL and Victoria in the previous four years, as WA recorded 12 more tackles, three more inside 50s, 13 more scoring shots and nine goal kickers.

An appetite for the contest, relentless pressure, tackling and an ability to apply scoreboard pressure were all key components in WA’s famous win, as the WAFL confirmed their status as the best State league.

Bradshaw, representing WA for the first time, kicked three goals and applied constant pressure on the opposition, while Bolton (24 disposals, six inside 50s, one goal) and Andrews also had significant impacts in the win.

Meanwhile, former Claremont player Ben Saunders won the Simpson Medal as WA’s best player after hauling in eight marks and kicking 6.7.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA 3.2 9.5 15.10 20.14 (134)

VICTORIA 3.4 5.7 8.7 10.11 (71)


WESTERN AUSTRALIA: 6 B. Saunders, 3 H. Schloithe, J. Bradshaw, 2 L. Jetta, C. Wheeler, 1 A. Black, R. Cook, J. Bolton, T. Notte.

League Report - Falcons swoop on wasteful Tigers

Monday, May 22, 2017 - 9:57 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

An inaccurate Claremont slumped to their sixth consecutive defeat, with the Tigers suffering a 32-point loss against West Perth at HBF Arena last Saturday.

Despite recording five more inside 50s, the Tigers were unable to translate their efforts into goals, with the Falcons prevailing 13.14 (92) to 7.18 (60).

Keifer Yu (20 disposals, four tackles) was again one of Claremont’s best players despite suffering a heavy knock and being forced from the field in the final term, while Matt Guelfi (23 disposals, four tackles, one goal) was prominent.

Bailey Banfield (27 disposals, eight tackles, five inside 50s) continued his fine season, while Harrison McCracken gave the team plenty of drive.

Eddie Simpson (two goals) and Jacob Sideris (five tackles) made promising debuts, while Jared Hardisty laid eight tackles and Ian Richardson (22 disposals, eight inside 50s, one goal) took home the players’ player award.

Meanwhile, Anthony Morabito lined up in his 50th League game.

On a sour note, Jye Bolton was reported for striking West Perth’s Dean Munns.

West Perth were led by Andrew Strijk (six inside 50s, five goals) and Shane Nelson (34 disposals, seven inside 50s) as the team recorded their fifth consecutive win.

Despite both teams recording nine scoring shots in the opening term, the Tigers could only manage a return of 1.8, with the Falcons adding 6.3 to effectively seal the result.

The Tigers will now cool their heels before hosting East Fremantle at Claremont Oval in round 12.

CLAREMONT 1.8 3.11 4.13 7.18 (60)

WEST PERTH 6.3 8.5 12.10 13.14 (92)

Development Report - Tigers Feast on Falcons

Monday, May 22, 2017 - 9:56 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves defeated West Perth by 49 points at HBF Arena last Saturday to record their fifth consecutive win and maintain their outstanding and consistent form.

Despite scores being level at quarter-time, the Tigers kicked nine goals to two after the opening change to prevail 11.14 (80) to 4.7 (31) and kept the Falcons goalless in the second and scoreless in the final term.

Both teams recorded 41 inside 50s, however, the Tigers had more avenues to goal, with 14 more scoring shots and seven goal kickers to West Perth’s three.

Tom Ledger (31 disposals, four tackles) led from the front with his repeat efforts and attack on the ball to finish as Claremont’s best player and took home the players’ player award, while Jesse Laurie responded to his League omission with an outstanding performance in defence.

Tom Lawrence (three goals), who was moved forward for the second half, showed he can have an impact at both ends, while Lachlan Martinis and Chris (CJ) Oakley (seven tackles, two goals) were other strong performers.

Mitchell Peirce (33 disposals, seven tackles) and Conal Lynch (22 disposals, nine tackles, one goal) led the way for West Perth, however, Michael Ashfield (two goals) was the team’s only multiple goal kicker as the Falcons slumped to their third consecutive defeat.

In wet and cold conditions, Aaron Holt gave Claremont a great start with the first goal of the game after being found by Josh Bennett, before Joel Bennett replied for West Perth.

Oakley then snapped the Tigers’ second goal, before Ashfield made the team pay for an inability to clear the ball deep in defence and replied for the hosts.

A desperate smother by Martinis and inspirational chase and tackle by Holt gave Claremont a strong finish to an entertaining opening term.

A neat transition from defence and 50m penalty allowed Nick Winmar to kick Claremont’s third major and give the team a four-point lead at the four-minute mark of the second term, before Sam Bevan, playing his first game since round six, gave the Tigers consecutive goals.

With Bennett finding plenty of the ball and the Tigers beginning to get the contest on their terms, a second major to Oakley followed a smart tap by the returning Kaiden Gilbert (first game since round six) and an ability by the team to keep the ball moving forward at all costs.

The result was an 18-point lead to the Tigers at half-time.

A front-and-centre crumbing goal to Lawrence gave Claremont four consecutive majors and a great start to the second half, before Lynch kicked West Perth’s first goal since the 15-minute mark of the opening term.

Lawrence then replied with his second after some outstanding pressure by Claremont to lock the ball in their forward half, with Ledger becoming more prominent by the minute.

A 50m penalty allowed Ashfield to kick his second goal, before Bevan did likewise to give the Tigers a 26-point lead at the final change.

A goal to Matt Palfrey gave the Tigers the first goal of every term and a 34-point lead five minutes into the final term, before majors to Gilbert and Lawrence (third) capped off a fine display in ordinary conditions.

The Tigers will now cool their heels before hosting East Fremantle at Claremont Oval in round 12.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts recorded their third consecutive win with a 44-point thumping of West Perth, 10.9 (69) to 3.7 (25).

CLAREMONT 2.2 5.6 8.9 11.14 (80)

WEST PERTH 2.2 2.6 4.7 4.7 (31)


CLAREMONT: 3 T. Lawrence, 2 C. Oakley, S. Bevan, 1 M. Palfrey, K. Gilbert, N. Winmar, A. Holt.

WEST PERTH: 2 M. Ashfield, 1 J. Bennett, C. Lynch.


CLAREMONT: T. Ledger, J. Laurie, T. Lawrence, L. Martinis, C. Oakley.

WEST PERTH: M. Peirce, C. Lynch, Z. Guadagnin, A. Coe.
