The Sharks were superb in the first half leading by 4 goals heading to the main break. Four goals to Jonathon Marsh in the first two terms was a stand out for East Fremantle.

The defensive effort was huge from East Fremantle and that continued in the third quarter with the Sharks keeping the Royals goalless until the 26th minute mark of the third.

The adopted home side headed to the last change 40 points ahead of East Perth.

Three goals inside ten minutes got the Royals within 22 points and put the Sharks on the back foot. The wrestle continued during the term with East Perth getting within 10 points of the Sharks but the early dominance by East Fremantle proved to be the difference.

East Fremantle Captain Matthew Jupp said that there are still plenty of areas to work on. “The good start set us up for the win in the end. We were a bit sluggish in the second and fourth quarter, our first and third set us up for a win”.

Jupp knew it was going to be a hard fought contest against the undefeated East Perth side. “It was a tough battle against East Perth today who we always knew were going to fight back despite our good start”.

A six goal haul by Marsh and 40 disposals by Cam Eardley in defence were instrumental in the victory in Northampton. “We had a number of good contributors. Jonathan Marsh Kicking six goals. Cam Eardley having 40 possessions of half back helped us set up for the win”, said Jupp.

The Sharks, who are yet to play a game at WACA, sit in a very good position after three rounds of football. “It takes our season to two and one and sets us up for a good year”.
