HALF TIME. Perth-&7.


Anderson to Gook preceded a long shot which raised -the lone flag, and, bursting to the other end, Subiaco saw Stefan snap a sixer. Smith's mark on the half-back line spelt the end to a city advance, and Oliphant to Car- rington settled a maroon sortie.

As Peers launched another move

Harbison was in the way. Davey : (gobd) to Oliphant -began a raid which Browne checked. However, Carrington soon sent to Gook, who flew for a lofty one and made no error wrth his kick.

From^t free on" a difficult angle Lewis goaled. Murphy to Mills found the batter in front ?>. an open goal, and he tapped his boot to the ball for his fifth ma3ôn ;

Whoo Browne whisked it forward Dewar marked and sent to Carrington, and thence it went to Oliphant, whose boot called on Lou Daily to relieve. S. Daily upended another rush before Davey goaled for the redlegs. Harbi- son went off with a cramp in the leg, and Harold (19th man) came on.

On the run Peers whipped through a major, and right on the bell a long shot by Warren went through the big open- ing.


PERTH-14.16 (lOOpts.)

SUBIACO-12.10 (82pts.)

Goalkickers.-Perth: Gook 6, Toohey 2. Lewis 2, Grigg, Hetherington, Oliphant and Davey one each. Subi- aco: Mills 6, Peers 2, S. Daily, Steiui, W. Yeates and Warren one each.


In Harbison, who marked with sureness and cleared promptly and frequently, the winners had a top- notch defender. Davey sparkled on the flank; Fitzgerald was in grand form on the back line: and Oliphant was repeatedly under notice with a fine showing as a follower.

Brown broke many attacks at half- back, while Hetherington was more than useful. Gook kicked six goals and would have got more but for in- accuracy-while others under notice in a side which had few weak links, included Grigg, Toohey, Keightley and - in the second half-Dewar.

Mills stood out as an easy first for Subiaco and did a fine Job in securing six majors. S. Daib. Peers, Smith and Browne gave pleasing exhibitions, and others to catch the eye were R. Yates, Murphy, Warren, Davies and Stenn.
