Round 7 vs North Beach

Sam Birmingham

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.

Round 6 vs Whitfords

West Coast overcame a sluggish start, in less than ideal conditions at City Beach Oval, to beat Whitford in their Round 6 clash - West Coast 12.10 (82) defeated Whitford 9.4 (56).

The first quarter began in drizzling rain and a gusty breeze which appeared to affect the ball handling and skills of the home side but had no such impact on the away team, as Whitfords kicked five goals straight to take a significant lead into the first break.

The momentum began to swing back towards West Coast as they closed the gap to seventeen point by half-time thanks largely to Jake Carter, who is making his presence felt in his first season at the Coasters.

A different side emerged after the major break as the Tigers asserted their presence on the match to take the lead into the final change. The last quarter was more of the same as the superior fitness of the home side began to show. Key forward Brad Bennet continued his good form as he finished the match with five goals, while Brad Nisbett personified toughness in the midfield to thrust the ball forward on countless occasions.

Overall it was a great day down at West Coast as the colts and reserves turned in their best performances of the year with the colts going down in a tight loss while the reserves got on the winner's list by a five goal margin.

Haydn Burke continues to put pressure on the league squad as he took best on ground honours in the reserves, while Ben Musitsno did the same in the colts. West Coast will be looking to consolidate their position in the top five next week, taking on A-Grade powerhouse North Beach, who have begun to hit their straps after an indifferent start to the year.

Round 5 vs University

Sam Birmingham

In front of a vocal home crowd, filled with past players celebrating the 1994 A Grade Premiership, West Coast matched it with a previously-undefeated University side for four arduous quarters, eventually going down with the last kick of the game - West Coast 9.8 (62) defeated by University 9.13 (68).

The Tigers started slowly, giving up a three goal lead in the first quarter however clawed themselves back into the contest by half time. Half back Michael Rafferty played his role to perfection and was thrust into the midfield to increase his influence on the game.

The match was tied at the final break and West Coast managed to gain the lead with several minutes to go after some clutch set shots from Brad Bennet, however the visitors continued to drive the ball forward and took the lead for the final time courtesy of a free kick. The loss leaves the Tigers league side at 2 wins and 3 losses, having played the top five teams and will be looking to take advantage of their fixtures in the coming weeks.

The colts began their day fiercely, led by Ryan Hayward who was best on ground before he knocked himself out thrusting himself into the contest. The talented University managed to wear our young lads down over four quarters despite the willing efforts of the home side.

The reserves were able to name their best side of the year and it showed on the field as they performed strongly without getting results on the scoreboard eventually going down by a significant margin. West Coast will be looking for wins across the board next week with Whitford firmly in their sights.
