West Coast have not won consecutive matches this season and the trend continued as North Beach defended their home turf - North Beach 13.10 (88) defeated West Coast 10.8 (68).
The game was in the balance at the first break, with West Coast taking in a slight lead, however the home side bounced back in the second term kicking five goals to two.
Led by midfielders Jake Carter and Brad Nisbett, the Tigers moved the ball quickly and took risks through the corridor to win the third quarter. Despite being within striking distance, the momentum returned to the home side as West Coast showed the signs of individual football that put them in a losing position in the first half.
Brad Bennet continued to show why he is the leading goal kicker of the competition bagging four while Tim Archer and Blake Anderson gave their all in the backline. The colts and reserves struggled to keep up with the talented squads that North Beach were able to put on the park although the improvement is promising and the club will be looking for a trifecta of wins against Swan Athletic in the next fixture.
