EXCITING LAST QUARTER.

Subiaco Defeats West Perth.

Beaten in most phases of the game, West Perth began the last quarter of the match at Subiaco Oval against Subiaco on Saturday with a deficit of 10.3 and it

made a valiant but unsuccesstul attempt to win. The crowd thrilled as West Perth, with the advantage of a strong wind, clap ped on the pace and steadily converted a seemingly hopeless prospect into a chance of success. Goal followed goal and Subiaco was demoralised. With nearly five minutes to go the difference was 22 and then Subiaco made a dying effort and saved the match. West Perth was without the ser vices of Benton, Drew, Roberts, Morgan, N. McDiarmid and Kenna, but for three quarters it was badly beaten. Subiaco held

a strong advantage in the ruck and across the centre, and it did everything right, whereas West Perth, in spite of the good work of some of its backs, failed to make use of the wind in the second term and until the last quarter lacked the dash and vigour of its opponents. Against the breeze West Perth scored only two §oints and Subiaco added 12 against it. ollowing were the teams:— SUBIACO.— Backs: Brewer, Rodger. Strack, Hall-backs: N. Snashall, S. Daily, McCallum. Centres: Mackay, Richardson, Bowe. Halffor wards: Browne, L. Toll, E. Toll. Forwards: Merson, J. Jennings, D. Ryan. Ruck: Roe, M. Green, G. Smith (rover). Nineteenth man: F. Daily (did not play). WEST PERTH. — Backs: Ford, J. Grijrg, Me Guckin. Half-backs: O'Keefe, P. 'Walsh. Tet ley. Centres: L. Walsh, Anderson, O'Connor. Half -forwards: R. Green, Flemming, Lovelock. Forwards: Dalzicll, Tvson, Gregg. Ruck: Mar inko, McGarry, Rainoldi .(rover). Nineteenth man: Flegg (replaced R. Green in third quar ter). UMPIRE. — G. Gannon. Flemming's first kick in a league match this year gave -Tyson a chance to score for West Perth against the breeze, but only a behind resulted. Then Siibiaeo at tadked consistently in* blinding- rain, but failed to make use of opportunities until Merson goaled seven minutes after the start. For Subiaco L. Toll was doing well at half-forward and M. Green was.battling hard in the ruck. West Perth could not score chiefly because of its weakness; across the centre, ? but .'Flemming was -playing well. Merson's marking in a for ward pocket was doing damage and he kicked his . third coal. In spite of the work of P. Walsh and Tetley Subiaco scored heavily and ? at quarter time led with 7.4 to 0.1. With the assistance of the wind West

Perth pressed forward, but in attack it was- far from- efficient through^' lack of cohesion and poor kicking:- . B.ainpldi was passing ? nicely, but Subiaco's backs came through -\in fine style, MclSallum,' Green and Rodger in particular. West Perth fought for nine minutes before it scored a goal and exciting play . led to Merson kicking a goal for Subiaco immediately afterwards. Subiaco players were helping each other admirably. Tyson and Flem minK goaled and at half time Subiaco led with 8.5 to 3.7. After the interval Flemming played at ceutre-half back and Tetley, who had been playing well, in the centre in place of And erson. Excellent knocking out by its fol lowers, helped ' Subiaco to keep up thp pressure and two goals preceded a behind by West Perth. Then Rainoldi was pen alised in front of goal and West Perth lost a goldeu opportunity to score. Long

kicking by Subiaco enabled it to build up ii huge lead and McGuckin strove hard to hold the West Perth defence together. A.t the bell Subiaco led with 13.11 to 3.8. At the start of the last quarter the play waB crowded and West Perth still kicked inaccurately. At last Tyson goaled and Rainoldi's goal reduced the margin to 8.1 after eight minutes' play. Flegg, who had come oh in place of R. Green, whose right hand was injured, was doing well, and brilliant football by O'Connor on the wing was a big factor in West Perth's rally. West Perth was marking well and O'Connor kicked his second goal with seven minutes to go, making the deficit 3.2. Subiaco was plainly worried and a goal by Lovelock made the game exciting. Along Mackay's wing Subiaco forced the ball to its forwards, but two long kick* sent West Perth into attack again. Had West Perth concentrated on kicking the ball into the left pocket it might still have won, but when Toll made a perfect pick-up Subiaco had the game won. He marked in front after passing to Ryan and kicked a behind. An exciting match ended with the following scores: — SUBIACO .. ..?«.. 13.12 (90 pts.) WEST PERTH .. „ ... 10.15 (75 pts.) Goal-kickers. — Subiaco: Merson (5). M. Green (4), Ryan (2), Jennings and Smith. West Perth: Tvson (4). O'Connor

i2), Anderson, Flemming, Rainoldi and iOvelock. For Subiaco M. Green was probably the best player, as his vigour in attack, in the ruck and in defence was a matchwin ning factor. Mackay, Bowe and Richard son formed a strong centre line. Rodger, McCallum and S. Daily were reliable back men. -Merson's accurate kicking and good marking were features of the play, and L. Toll and Ryan also played well in at tack. Browne and Roe worked hard, and Smith showed improved form. Brewer's display was promising. West Perth fielded a patchy side. P. Walsh, Tetley, Flemming, Ford, McGuckin and Rainoldi were probably most service* able.. McGarry,. Gregg and Marinko were in fair form and Anderson played best in the last half. Flegg played well when h» came on and O'Connor was brilliant in the last quarter.
