Grand Final to forget for Bulldogs

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 12:40 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle had done a tremendous job to reach the 2019 WAFL Grand Final but it didn’t turn out how the Bulldogs hoped with Subiaco asserting its dominance with a 96-point victory.

It was a richly deserved Grand Final appearance for South Fremantle after four successive second place finishes at the end of the home and away season.

After losing the past three preliminary finals to Peel Thunder in 2016, Subiaco in 2017 and West Perth in 2018, South Fremantle broke through to beat Claremont in the 2019 preliminary final at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

First Grand Final a deserved reward for Bewick

Saturday, September 21, 2019 - 6:06 PM - by Chris Pike

THERE are precious few fairytales in football and getting what you deserve doesn’t really exist, but reward for your dedication and perseverance can eventuate and it's hard to imagine a more deserving player to reach a first Grand Final this Sunday than Shaun Bewick.

Bewick will play his 154th WAFL game on Sunday and it will be the first Grand Final of a career that started back at West Perth where he and twin brother Rohan began to continue the rich family history with the Falcons firstly in the colts before he graduated to league level by 2009.

The finals heartbreak began there for Bewick with a first semi-final loss to Swan Districts and then a preliminary final loss to Subiaco in 2011 before he felt he needed a change and if he didn’t find another WAFL home, he'd likely move on altogether.

Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 8:48 PM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Preliminary Final triumph against Claremont that saw the Bulldogs advance to this Sunday's WAFL Grand Final against Subiaco at Optus Stadium.

QUESTION: You've waited a long time to get a Grand Final now, what's the feeling like to now be there?
ANSWER:
It's funny, it's a feeling of excitement of opportunity more than anything. We'll recover over the next couple of days and then do what we always do. We'll review and then train to get better and now only two teams can win it, and we're one of them.

Bulldogs advance to first Grand Final in a decade

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 12:25 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle delivered a strong preliminary final on its fourth straight attempt on Sunday afternoon to beat Claremont by 30 points at Fremantle Community Bank Oval to advance to the 2019 Grand Final.

The memories of the previous three preliminary final defeats for South Fremantle was something that was difficult to ignore as they played on the same day again for a fourth successive year, but the Bulldogs were more than up to the occasion this time around.

The first three quarters of the game saw the team kicking to the Fremantle Hospital end of the ground dominating the game. South Fremantle kicked the only three goals of the first quarter and then Claremont kicked the only three of the second term to lead narrowly at half-time.

Dent dreams of Grand Final with Bulldogs

Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 9:57 AM - by Chris Pike

GIVEN his football journey has been quite the rollercoaster ride and he even spent two years taking a break, Zac Dent is grasping every opportunity provided by South Fremantle and playing in a WAFL Grand Final would be a dream come true.

The now 23-year-old began his WAFL career having made the move up to the Perth to play colts at East Perth in 2014 and he was impressive as an inside midfielder racking up plenty of the ball.

It appeared a natural he would move into a league career with the Royals before long and he immediately adjusted well to playing senior football producing a tremendous 2015 season in the reserves.

Preliminary Final Preview v Claremont

Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 11:26 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle is back in the WAFL preliminary final this Sunday against Claremont at Fremantle Community Bank Oval and is hoping it turns out to be fourth time lucky and a Grand Final berth is at the end of it.

For four straight seasons now, South Fremantle finished in second position on the ladder and ended up in a preliminary final.

The last three years haven’t gone to plan with a loss to Peel Thunder in 2016, to Subiaco in 2017 and then to West Perth in 2018. The loss last year to the Falcons was the most shocking and the biggest upset of the trio.
