Victory keps Tigers in finals race

Claremont have kept their faint finals hopes alive with an eight-point win over Subiaco at Medibank Stadium.

The Tigers led at every change to record their ninth win of the season 11.11 (77) to 9.15 (69).

The loss for Subiaco leaves them in a precarious position as they look to seal a top-two finish.

Poor skill errors in the first half proved to be costly for Subiaco, with a number of turnovers leading to Claremont goals.

Subiaco were left to rue an inaccurate third quarter where they could only manage two goals and nine behinds.

Small forward Jack Bradshaw managed four goals for the Tigers, while Trinity Handley and Jackson Starcevich each kicked two goals. 

Rhys Waters was a standout in the forward line for the Lions, booting three goals. 

Mark Seaby was the dominant big man on the ground with 34 hit-outs and his influence around the ground was important for the visitors.

Subiaco play South Fremantle and East Fremantle in their final two games as they look to secure a double-chance in the finals.

Claremont face West Perth and East Perth in their last two games, and must win both games as well as relying on other results to go their way.
