Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 12:53 PM - by Chris Pike

HORRIBLE weather conditions on Saturday set the scene for Subiaco's Kyal Horsley and Leigh Kitchin, Swan Districts' David Ellard and Adam Faulkner, Claremont's Jye Bolton and East Perth's Patrick McGinnity to shine, but it was a string of big men and a Peel premiership defender who also starred.

The worst weather of the season greeted all eight clubs in the four games on Saturday afternoon but it did produce some fascinating and important results.

Subiaco held off West Perth at HBF Arena to win 6.11 (47) to 4.12 (36). It was a 12th straight win for the Lions on the back of strong midfield efforts from Horsley and Kitchin.

Wet, cold and windy conditions might have limited the goal scoring and free-flowing play across the four matches on Saturday in Round 15 of the 2017 season, but it certainly didn’t minimise the drama, competitiveness or intrigue with three of the games going right down to the wire.

West Perth hosted its annual International Football Festival at HBF Arena with the terrible weather conditions meaning the crowd that has regularly turned out for the event was kept away, but the Falcons and Subiaco still put in another tough and bruising affair.
