South Fremantle faces Subiaco for a spot in the WAFL grand final.

SOUTH Fremantle is through to the WAFL preliminary final after a big win over Swan Districts yesterday afternoon.

The Bulldogs needed to bounce back after a lacklustre game against Peel Thunder in the first week of the finals and did so in style, demolishing Swan Districts 136-56.

It was all South Fremantle in attack, the Bulldogs kicking 17 of the last 20 goals in front of a jubilant home crowd.

Blaine Johnson was deadly booting 4.1, while teammates Timothy Kelly and Ben Saunders kicked three each.

Both Shane Hockey and Blaine Johnson passed the 30-disposal mark, picking up 34 and 32 touches respectively.

However it was not all smooth sailing for the Bulldogs, with both Johnson and Jarrad Garlett reported.

The club is now one win away from a grand final match up against Peel but must beat minor premiers Subiaco at Leederville Oval on Sunday to get there.

South Fremantle’s reserves and East Fremantle’s colts are through to the grand final after disposing of Subiaco and Claremont respectively in their finals.
