Bulldogs win seventh straight by downing Demons

Monday, March 30, 2015 - 12:57 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle controlled most of the contest and then withstood a late Perth charge to win by 10 points at Lathlain Park on Saturday with the Bulldogs now having won seven straight matches and consecutive games to start a season for the first time since 2006.

The Bulldogs led by 42 points against the Demons during the third quarter and then again by 39 early in the last following goals to Haiden Schloithe and James Sellar, but the home team then piled on five goals in a 10-minute burst to get back into the contest.

However, a steadying goal from Ben Saunders from outside 50 was enough for South Fremantle to hold on and record the 12.13 (85) to 11.9 (75) victory.

Round 2 Preview v Perth

Friday, March 27, 2015 - 3:27 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle got its 2015 season off to a perfect start last Friday night and now the Bulldogs have the chance to make it two from two this Saturday against Perth at Lathlain Park with the game live on 7mate.

South Fremantle started its season tremendously last Friday night beating West Perth at Fremantle Oval and now hits the road to take on a Perth team coming off a 96-point Round 1 loss to Swan Districts with the Demons now on a 15-match losing streak.

The Bulldogs have not started a season with consecutive victories since 2006 when the then reigning premiers opened the new campaign with six straight wins before eventually going on to lose the grand final of that year to Subiaco.

Player Column – Captain Ryan Cook Rd 2

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 6:13 PM - by Ryan Cook

IT WAS a great way to start the year last Friday night beating West Perth. They won the flag only two years ago and the WAFL can change pretty quickly from season to season, but they still had 16 or 17 of their premiership players out there so it was a good team we beat.

Like our new coach TC said, you just try and scrap the first couple of rounds out and try to get the four points on the board, and that's what we were able to do. It's been a few years since we won a Round 1 game, but it was exciting to get that win on the board.

Exciting start to new WAFL season for Bulldogs

Saturday, March 21, 2015 - 4:16 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle has opened the 2015 WAFL season in style with a 35-point victory over West Perth at Fremantle Oval on Friday night.

The 14.6 (90) to 8.7 (55) victory is the first time that South Fremantle has recorded a Round 1 victory since 2010 and it was the perfect way to begin Todd Curley's time in charge as senior coach.

West Perth kicked the first goal of the game, and season, but from there South Fremantle took control of the contest with the last four goals of the first quarter, and then never seeing their lead fall below five points before securing the eventual 35-point triumph over the 2013 premiers.

Curley excited for Bulldogs debut to come against Falcons

Thursday, March 19, 2015 - 5:50 PM - by Chris Pike

TODD Curley has never previously been involved in any WAFL club bar West Perth so it's only fitting that his debut as South Fremantle coach this Friday night at Fremantle Oval comes against the Falcons.

Curley did play in the AFL with both Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs, but when it comes to the WAFL he played his entire career with West Perth and his first stint as a senior coach was also with the Falcons.

Now after some time away from football for the first time in more than two decades following a stint as assistant coach with the Fremantle Dockers, Curley is returning to senior coaching ranks in the WAFL and this time he has taken over at South Fremantle.

Monday, March 16, 2015 - 12:15 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle has finished its preparations ahead of Friday night's WAFL season-opener against West Perth by recording a hard fought pre-season hit out with East Perth.

The Bulldogs beat a Royals team featuring a host of West Coast Eagles-listed player at Fremantle Oval on Friday night by 10 points in what should be ideal preparation for this Friday's season-opener back at the port against West Perth.

South Fremantle beat East Perth 11.3 (69) to 8.11 (59) with a host of strong performances from the likes of Adam Guglielmana and Adam McIntosh in defence, Tim Kelly, Brendan Verrier and Haiden Schloithe through the middle, and Ashton and Kyle Hams around the ground.
