WEST Perth couldn’t quite finish the job after hitting the front in the last quarter losing the WAFL elimination final to Swan Districts on Sunday at Steel Blue Oval with the Falcons season coming to an end in the process.
Swan Districts qualified for the AHG WAFL Finals Series in fourth position but had lost four straight games including a 61-point loss to the lowly East Fremantle last Saturday so it was always going to take something special to turn that around on Sunday.
West Perth might not have been in much better form losing seven of 10 games entering the finals too, but the Falcons were a team used to being there come finals time and who appeared better equipped coming into the contest. Read More ...

AN inaccurate first quarter was the precursor to a season-ending loss to Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval on Sunday. West Perth rallied on a number of occasions to hit the front but on the final siren West Perth was 15 points short of Swans. 

As a consequence the Falcons season is over but in the context of the year the fifth placing was a good result and will provide a launching pad for next year.

The first quarter was one in which West Perth received very little reward for effort. They kicked the first score of the match, a behind, before Swans kicked the first goal after receiving a 50m penalty. It went to dangerous forward, Ricky Cary. The Falcons followed with three behinds. Of the first four West Perth scoring shots, three were very kickable and this was to come back and haunt the visitors.

QUALIFYING for the finals is always the goal any season and it's a good achievement any time it's ticked off and now West Perth coach Bill Monaghan is looking forward to seeing how far the Falcons can go in 2017.

West Perth's form might not have been as strong as hoped to close the season, but the fact remains that the Falcons put in such a strong first half of the year to be in a good position and that by winning 10 games they were deserving of a finals spot ahead of East Perth and Claremont.

In the end as well it was only just over one per cent that West Perth missed out on hosting this Sunday's elimination final against Swan Districts.

WEST Perth is back in WAFL finals action in 2017 and after having fight hard to be there will be looking to make the most of it starting Sunday in the elimination final against Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval.

Neither team might be entering the AHG WAFL Finals Series in peak form but that will count for little when their seasons go on the line Sunday at the Bassendean venue.

With precious little separating the two teams over the course of the season with both winning 10 games and then Swan Districts only finishing in fourth position with a percentage 1.44 greater than that of West Perth, that says it all about the tightness of the contest that awaits.

WEST Perth produced a stunning finish on an afternoon where it was accurate and efficient to end up beating Claremont by four points at Claremont Oval to make the finals in 2017.
Claremont and West Perth have played in a string of remarkably tight and tense games in recent years with precious little separating the two teams and no love lost from them out on the field either.
So with the potential of a finals position being at stake on Saturday at Claremont Oval the stage was set for a tantalising and tense contest from start to finish. Read More ...

WEST Perth had its backs to the wall on a number of occasions at Claremont Oval on Saturday but showed real character to come away with a four-point victory. Both sides had a lot to play for as a finals spot was at stake and the contest reflected this all day. 

On a number of occasions the Tigers looked to have the game under control but the Falcons found a way to win in a match that culminated in a pulsating fourth quarter. The victory now has West Perth facing Swan Districts in an elimination final Sunday at Steel Blue Oval.

Claremont had the advantage of a pretty stiff breeze to start the match and the first major went to Ian Richardson who scored from outside 50. West Perth kicked a goal at the eight-minute mark when Dean Munns scored from the square after receiving a 50m penalty. The margin was one at this point in time but the Tigers took full advantage of the breeze for the next 20 minutes and opened up a 23-point advantage.
