SOUTH Fremantle has broken a two-match losing streak in fine fashion, demolishing East Fremantle in a WA Day derby rout yesterday.

The Bulldogs cruised to victory 28.17 (185) to 6.4 (40) at East Fremantle Oval to keep some sort of pressure on table-toppers Subiaco and ensure the Sharks remain winless after 11 rounds.

The visitors booted 10 goals in the opening term and kept the Sharks scoreless in a blitz that laid the foundation for the massive win.

Bulldogs midfield Tim Kelly continued an impressive season finishing with seven goals and 35 disposals for the match.

Haiden Schloithe followed up a great state game with 38 disposals and four goals.

Cameron Eardley finished with 32 disposals and one goal for the hosts.

Ryan Lester-Smith was the only multiple goal-kicker for the Sharks, finishing with two.
