GAME DAY: JK’s seven prompt Eagles win

West Coast’s forward Josh Kennedy has stepped up to kick seven goals while Fremantle fell away in the second half of the 44th Western Derby to go down to the Eagles by 46-points at Domain Stadium on Sunday afternoon. 

Fremantle entered the game with determination as Shane Yarran got first points on the board and they fought on for a six-point lead at the first break, but it was shortlived with the Eagles surging ahead late in the second quarter and they never looked back. 

 

Nic Naitanui and Aaron Sandilands returned from their injuries to take their spots in the middle of the ground with 26 and 23 hit outs respectively, they both eased into the game. 
While Hayden Ballantyne also returned from injury donning a helmet after his broken cheek forced him out of the last two games.
