They were down by 10 points in the final term but overcame six lead changes to prevail 12.16 (88) to 12.5 (77).

The midfielder finished with a game-high 40 possessions, 10 tackles, eight inside 50s and seven marks to go with his match-winning strike on the run to give himself and close mate Jupp winning milestones.

Running machine Milan Murdock continued his career best season, while ex-AFL pair Cameron Eardley, Jarrad Jansen and half-back Ryan Lester-Smith were also prominent and had a big say in the second half for the Sharks. 

League Coach Bill Monaghan said he was happy the club got over the line for Matthew Jupp. “He was really keen to get the win and part of being a good leader and he’s very good at it, is putting the team first before yourself.”

The competition is extremely close in the WAFL competition this year and Monaghan said every game is important. “The competition is really tight with Claremont and South going down to East Perth and West Coast on Saturday and that helped us a little bit as well.”
