Wins for colts, reserves; loss for league v Sharks

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 2:12 PM - by Chris Pike

WHILE Swan Districts' league side fell to East Fremantle on Saturday with the Sharks winning their first WAFL match in almost a year, the reserves and colts were impressive scoring strong wins for the Black Ducks.

Then up against an East Fremantle team who hadn’t won since Round 8 last year and who lost to West Perth by 26 points prior to the State Game break and 91 points to South Fremantle the week before, everything was pointing towards a good day for Swans on their home deck.
