Round 12 Preview v Claremont

Friday, August 2, 2019 - 1:30 PM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts is looking to make it three from three against Claremont this WAFL Women's season when the two teams lock horns on Saturday afternoon at Steel Blue Oval.

The clash on Saturday afternoon at Steel Blue Oval between Swan Districts and Claremont will be a fascinating one.

It will be played as the lead in to the WAFL contest later in the afternoon between Swan Districts and the West Coast Eagles as well. 

So with the Swans reserves and Youth Girls having the bye along with the colts and reserves also not playing this WAFL weekend, the WAFLW and WAFL games will be the only contests featured at Steel Blue Oval on Saturday in what should be a fascinating afternoon.

Swans fall agonisingly short of second win over Subiaco

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 9:13 AM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts dominated the second half in Saturday's WAFL Women's contest at Leederville Oval but fell agonisingly short of a second consecutive win against the league-leading Subiaco.

Swan Districts did defeat Subiaco three weeks ago in their last appearance in the 2019 Optus WAFLW Premiership Season with Swans having the bye in Round 10 and then with the general break for the State Game against Queensland.

Subiaco had bounced back from that loss to Swan Districts prior to the State Game with a big win over Peel Thunder, but Swans were still trying to back up the performance only this time doing so at Leederville Oval.

Colts, reserves provide positives on tough day

Monday, July 29, 2019 - 8:52 AM - by Chris Pike

SATURDAY proved a tough day for Swan Districts coming off the WAFL bye with an 85-point loss at the hands of South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval but the news was better in the colts and reserves.

It didn’t turn out the day Swan Districts were hoping on Saturday at the port against the Bulldogs with the black-and-whites only managing goals at the 12-minute mark of the first quarter and the 25th of the last with South Fremantle ending up winning 15.17 (107) to 2.10 (22).

Swan Districts' lone goals came from Seb Bright and Aidan Clarke.

Round 11 Preview v Subiaco

Friday, July 26, 2019 - 3:19 PM - by Chris Pike

THREE weeks since a stirring WAFL Women's win over Subiaco at Steel Blue Oval, Swan Districts again take on the Lions this Saturday this time at Leederville Oval.

Swan Districts last game this Optus WAFLW Premiership Season was three weeks ago when they hosted Subiaco and scored an impressive 14-point victory at Steel Blue Oval.

Swans haven’t played since with the club having the bye in Round 10 of the WAFLW competition and then the league having a general bye for last week's State Game which saw Queensland take away the victory also held at Steel Blue Oval.

Round 16 Preview v South Fremantle

Friday, July 26, 2019 - 2:57 PM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts will be hoping the bye will prove just the tonic to return to the winners list as they prepare to take on another team, South Fremantle, on a losing streak this Saturday at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

Swan Districts had lost its past six matches heading into last weekend's bye to be two games clear on the bottom of the WAFL ladder, but they have been significantly more competitive than that suggests.

With an increasingly youthful line-up, Swans have been able to keep themselves in games for the most part but not quite for the full four quarters which is a signal of the inexperience amongst the group.

Ellard primed for big finish to frustrating 2019

Thursday, July 25, 2019 - 3:08 PM - by Chris Pike

IT is fair to say it's been a frustrating 2019 WAFL season for Swan Districts as a team and co-captain David Ellard personally, but he is focused on a strong finish to the campaign and has thrown his full support behind coach Adam Pickering.

It has been a 2019 season that has never really got off the group for Ellard. His troublesome calf didn’t allow him to make his first appearance at league level until Round 2 and then after getting through two games, he went down hurt again in Round 4 against West Perth.

He then missed Round 5 against Subiaco before returning a week later against East Fremantle in what would prove his last appearance at league level until Round 14 when he made his way back for the loss to East Fremantle prior to last weekend's bye.

Swans impress in WAFLW ahead of break

Thursday, July 25, 2019 - 2:28 PM - by Chris Pike

THERE was lots to like about Swan Districts' last appearance in the WAFLW competition ahead of another clash with Subiaco this Saturday and it was all led by a best on ground display by Fremantle Dockers AFLW star Gemma Houghton.

Swan Districts came into Round 9 of the Optus WAFLW Premiership Season as underdogs against the league-leading Subiaco at Steel Blue Oval who had just lost the once so far in the 2019 campaign.

But Swans produced their most impressive performance of the season to end up winning by 14 points ahead of a two-week break before again taking on the Lions on Saturday July 27 at Leederville Oval from 2.30pm.

Swan Districts lose to East Fremantle at Shark Park

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 2:52 PM - by Chris Pike

DESPITE kicking just the one goal in the first half, Swan Districts was still in the contest against East Fremantle on Saturday at three quarter-time but ended up falling to a sixth straight loss with the 29-point defeat at the hands of the Sharks.

Swan Districts got themselves within tough of East Fremantle at New Choice Homes Park on Saturday afternoon, but couldn’t quite go on with the job.

East Fremantle kicked away from Swan Districts to win 8.11 (59) to 3.12 (30) with Swans finishing with 19 fewer possessions than the Sharks, 13 fewer inside-50 entries and four less scoring shots.

Round 14 Preview v East Fremantle

Friday, July 12, 2019 - 2:36 PM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts will look to put together a four-quarter performance on Saturday against East Fremantle to score a win on the road to snap the current losing run and in turn move off the bottom of the WAFL ladder.

East Fremantle hosts Swan Districts on Saturday afternoon with both teams desperate to return to the winner's list as they currently occupy the bottom two positions on the ladder.

East Fremantle produced a good month of football with wins against Swan Districts, Perth and East Perth in amongst the WA Day Foundation Derby loss to South Fremantle, but the Sharks haven’t been able to continue that momentum.
