East Perth and Snbiaco Draw.

When Subiaco realised in the last quar ter that it had a chance of winning and East Perth made desperate attempts to retrieve the nosition. the match at Subiaco

Oval became 'infused with, refreshing vig outvand dash, 'and in an exciting-- finish neither side was able to score a mere be hind which,- would have converted a draw into... victory.. With. East Perth treating^ the game with- almost ''leisurely unconcern1 and Subiaco not . having anything to gain or lose, the match was -not worth watch ing, in the first half , at the end of which East Perth held a lead of 1.5. The play brightened perceptibly in the third term and East Perth still, clung to a slender lead. For the first, 10 minutes of the last quarter East Perth : dominated the play, but finnicky short passing in the forward area enabled its ' oppbnent to retain a grip on the game: Suddenly Subiaco stir red itself and' before long East Perth found itself only one goal in front and then faced with the task of having to score t6'wjn. The ; play grew fast and willing and backs: on each side were hard pressed. U-The .-bell ended a. match, the excitement at ',the finish of which wa» bs welcome as it was unexpected. Fol lowing were the teams: — EAST PERTH.— Backs; M. Ryan, Bennett. Wood. ' Half-backs: ilatson. Little, R. Lawn. Centres: S Stiller, McCuUough, Guhl. HaU forwards: J; King, Dolan, Dempster.

East Perth' attacked strongly. but ite 'Jacking, was wretched. Guhl and Screa-igh'-were' nippy',~bil't' -duly'' behiirds were .scored. Subiaco's defenders.

Screaigh scored a goal and East Perth- looked the superior side. Never ?theless, it' wasted scoring chances and when Subiaco rallied Roe goaled after tak-» ing a fine mark. Subiaco was only six' points -in arrears. The play was willing and' two players came to blows. Theu Dempster scored a valuable goal for East =Pertfe?i=FdreTn|?-his : way:^through~*fr-)nr ?the. bounce, Bant placed Green in possession of the ball and the latter ran through

determinedly to score a goal. Again Subiaco attacked and from a pocket' Kelly had a shot with his left foot and the ball rolled through for a goal.
