Tigers Overrun by Bulldogs

by Dan Scamozzi

A barnstorming five-goal-to-one opening term wasn’t enough for Claremont to stop South Fremantle, who claimed a 25-point win over the Tigers in NAIDOC Round at Claremont Oval.

Despite Claremont leading by 24 points at quarter-time, the Bulldogs slammed on 13 goals to five in the next three terms to prevail 14.7 (91) to 10.6 (66) and win the Jimmy Melbourne Cup.

The result sees Claremont drop to seventh position on the ladder after consecutive losses, trailing sixth-placed East Perth on percentage but still just one win outside the top five.

Claremont’s Reserves returned to the winners’ list with a 34-point defeat of Peel Thunder in bitterly cold and wet conditions at Bendigo Bank Stadium.

Despite leading by just two points at quarter-time, with the football replicating a bar of soap and goals at a premium, the Tigers kicked two goals to nil in the second term, before adding five more after half-time in one of the team’s best wins of the season.

Women's Football Report - Tigers dominate East Perth

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 1:21 PM

CWFC vs EPWFC League Game Summary.

The Tigers had their largest win of the season with a dominant 189 point victory against a disappointing East Perth on Sunday. If not for some inaccurate kicking in the first half the margin would have been greater. Asha Price continued her strong form with an 11 goal haul whilst Angel Hayward again hit the scoreboard with 3 goals. Live wire forwards Ellen D’Cruz, Amanda Robertson and Kate Cowan all finished with 2 goals. The midfield group were relentless all game with outstanding performances by Parris Laurie and Bella Zadnik in the ruck alongside Jasmin Stewart, Tildi Sergeant, Rachel Asquith and Chloe Colgate.  

Claremont face their biggest challenge of the season next week against the Coastal Titans at Grenville Reserve. A challenge they are looking forward to.

VALE: WAL MASKIELL

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 11:09 AM

WALTER KENNETH MASKIELL
1926 - 2017
 
The Claremont Football Club is morning with the passing of one of the Club's longest serving and influential Presidents Walter Maskiell or Wal as he was affectionately known.

Wal passed away last Sunday with his family beside him and his funeral will be held at 12.30pm on Wednesday 28 June at Karrakatta Cemetery.Wal served on the Committee of the Club for a long period before taking over as President in 1976. He remained President until 1986 making him the equal third longest serving President in the Club's 127 year history. Wal was highly regarded amongst his peers at WAFL Club level and led the Club from a Premiership drought, the previous Premiership being 1964, through seven finals campaigns, competing in three Grand Finals and winning the Premiership in 1981.

Off the field he led a very progressive Board of Directors who introduced new marketing and sponsorship initiatives which were the envy of other WAFL Clubs.

He also oversaw the implementation of a highly successful junior development program in the Club's metropolitan and regional zones which had been developed by the late Monty Buttfield and others. The foundations of this program are still in place today and have resulted in scores of junior Claremont footballers go on to establish themselves at the highest levels of football in Australia.

The hallmark of Wal’s decade of Presidency was the stability that the Club achieved both on and off the field.
 
Wal was a Life Member of the Claremont Football Club, a Life Member of the WA Football Commission and served as Secretary/ Treasurer of the WAFC Life Member’s Association for many years.
 
Wal continued to support and follow the Club for many years after his Presidency until his recent ill health prevented him from coming down to the Club.
 
The Claremont Football Club extends its condolences to Wal’s son Graham and daughter Lynda and all the Maskiell family.
 
Wal was a true champion of this Club.

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont held off a fast-finishing and inaccurate West Perth to record their third consecutive win at Claremont Oval last Saturday.

West Perth’s Corey Chalmers had the chance to win the game for the Falcons after the siren, but saw his shot from a tight angle miss to the near side as the Tigers held on for a thrilling two-point win, 14.6 (90) to 12.16 (88).

The win leaves Claremont in sixth position on the ladder, however, the Tigers are now just one win from third-placed Peel Thunder, who they face in round 15.

Development Report: Tigers Punished by Falcons

Monday, June 26, 2017 - 11:25 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves saw their seven-game winning run come to an abrupt end after a sluggish and disappointing performance resulted in an 84-point defeat to West Perth at Claremont Oval last Saturday.

After starting slowly, getting dominated in midfield and offering little resistance, the Tigers had no answers in the 4.5 (29) to 17.11 (113) hiding, and were left licking their wounds after injuries to Jake Murphy (calf), Tom Shanahan (hamstring) and Aaron Holt (foot).

Charles Le Fanu (21 disposals, six tackles) battled manfully to finish as Claremont’s best player and won the players’ player award, while Luke Maddock was solid in defence and Declan Hardisty played his first game for the season.

Jack Richardson kicked two goals but was the Tigers’ only multiple goal kicker, while Shaquille Morton and Jacob Delaporte made their debuts.

West Perth were well served by Brayden and Mitchell Antonio, who combined for seven goals, while Conal Lynch (33 disposals, nine tackles, nine inside 50s, two goals) and veteran ruckman Chris Keunen (29 disposals, 30 hit-outs, six inside 50s, one goal) dominated as the Falcons recorded their fifth win of the season.

The Tigers will aim to rebound when they face Peel Thunder at Bendigo Bank Stadium in round 15.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts suffered a four-point defeat to West Perth, 8.8 (56) to 9.6 (60).
