Jandakot undefeated across three grades

Monday, May 21, 2018 - 3:15 PM

21 Wins.

That’s the number of wins Jandakot have reached already this season with their league, reserves and colt’s sides all remaining undefeated so far in 2018.

Their league side haven’t just been claiming the four points they have won all their matches by 44 points or more to give them a handy percentage as well.

Their biggest win of the season so far came in round four with a 172-point thrashing of bottom placed Armadale.

For a team who finished sixth on the ladder last season with just eight wins, the side would be impressed at the way they have started this season.

The club’s reserves side finished as minor premiers in 2017 however they went on to lose the Grand Final by just four points. They started the 2017 season with ten straight wins to their name with the side already adding some big wins early in 2018.

They have also managed to defeat last year’s premiers Osborne Park by a comfortable 50 points.

The Laurie Keene Colts had a successful 2017 season which saw them take out the premiership in the West Coast Eagles Colts division.

They made it through the entire 2017 home and away season without a loss and have continued that form into the new year. Their only loss last year was in the semi-final which means they currently have an impressive winning record having won 25 of their past 26 games.

Both the league and reserves sides will face Coolbellup this Saturday who are currently sitting in fourth (C4) and seventh (C4R) while the Laurie Keene Colts face sixth placed Dianella Morley at Dianella Open Space.
