Peel win nail-biter over South

Ella Longland - Curtin University  June 11, 2017 5:38 PM


Fremantle rookie Luke Strnadica's only goal for the day was the match-winner against South.

Peel Thunder have bounced back from their three-point loss last week against Subiaco with a nail-biting six point win over South Fremantle at Fremantle Oval.

With scores level late in the final term, Fremantle rookie Luke Strnadica kicked the game-winning goal to give the Thunder their sixth win of the season, 13.5 (83) to 11.11 (77).

Peel started the game strong with 10 goals in the opening half, the Bulldogs answering back with just two.

Defender Griffin Logue said Peel wanted to come out strong.

“We just wanted to get out and win the first quarter,” he said.

“We wanted to have heaps of pressure around the ball and make sure that we kind of gave it to South Fremantle early.

“They just threw everything they had at us and it was getting pretty close for a little bit.”

Peel only managed to hit the scoreboard once in the third term, thanks to Ethan Hughes, as South Fremantle fought back with four goals.

The home side increased their pressure in the final quarter kicking four goals in the last 15 minutes of the game to tie the score.

But Peel answered back with Strnadica kicking a final goal in the last three minutes to win the game.

Logue said it was important for everyone to play their role if they were to maintain a four-quarter effort.

“It’s just about making sure we are doing our roles on any given position on the ground,” he said.

“As long as we are doing our roles and putting in lots of effort and pressure then that’s all we can do.”

Fremantle listed player Joshua Deluca gathered 22 disposals and two goals.

Logue said Deluca stood out as a key player on the day.

“His tackles around the ball were just incredible, [he] always held it in and I knew he wasn’t going to miss a tackle at all.”

Matt Taberner was promosing up forward finishing with two goals for Peel.

The Thunder led the hit outs 61 to 40 largely thanks to Sean Darcy who had 42 of his own and nine disposals.

After a bye this week Peel will face East Fremantle at East Fremantle Oval on Saturday 24 June.
