One half won’t win it

Danyle Pearce spoke post-match following the loss against the Giants.

Fremantle midfielder Danyle Pearce said brief lapses of play in the first half cost Freo in their 18-point loss to GWS on Saturday night.
 
After a high scoring first quarter in which both teams scored 31 points, the Giants kicked away on the back on five unanswered goals in a 10 minutes burst during the second term.

Giants edge out Freo
 
While Pearce said he was pleased with their second half, he admitted that Freo couldn’t afford any momentary dips in performance.
 
“I thought we went away from the things we wanted to work on and the way we wanted to play in the first half,” Pearce said.
 
“We played a lot better in the second half but half a game of footy is never going to win a game.”
 
Despite the disappointing result, Pearce was adamant that Freo had the right mindset heading into the game and that no swooping changes were required after a tough loss to a quality opponent.
 
“The intent is there,” he said.
 
“We’re not throwing anything out.
 
“We’re not going to invent things to try and get a win, we’re behind our game plan and our coaches and are going to keep working.”

Talking points after GWS loss
 
Pearce’s ability to keep working was evident against the Giants on Saturday night, as he finished the game with 26 disposals and seven inside 50 entries.
 
In addition to his ball winning ability, Pearce also found the goals, following up a smother with a one-two handball and dribble goal from deep in the forward pocket.
