SWAN Districts moved up into second spot on the ladder and South Fremantle also leapfrogged Perth thanks to wins in the only two WAFL games in Round 20 of the 2012 season.
In the only game on Saturday afternoon, Swan Districts proved too good for Peel winning 22.14 (146) to 7.5 (47) at Steel Blue Oval to move up into second spot on the ladder with East Fremantle having the bye.
Then on Sunday at Fremantle Oval, a youthful South Fremantle got its second win on the trot beating Perth 16.12 (108) to 12.12 (84) to take the Demons' seventh spot on the table.
Peel had beaten Swan Districts the last two times they had met at Steel Blue Oval and were hoping to put in another competitive performance on Saturday to climb off the bottom of the ladder, but it wasn’t to be.
Swans were playing to move up into second spot on the ladder with East Fremantle and East Perth both having the Round 20 bye, and desperate to earn a double chance come finals time the black-and-whites blew the Thunder away.
Swan Districts kicked four goals to nil in the first quarter and another seven to one in the second to lead by 65 points at half-time. They went on without in the second half as well with another 11 goals to six to run out massive 99-point winners.
Swans dominated all over the field finishing with not only the 99-point winning margin and 36 scoring shots to 12, but they had 191 more disposals, 97 extra marks,25 more hit outs and 67 inside-50 entries to Peel's 39.
Ash Hansen continued his outstanding goal kicking form with six more majors to give him 57 goals from 10 games in 2012. Swans had plenty of big ball winners also with Shaun Hildebrandt picking up 38 possessions, Tom Roach 37, Marlon Motlop 32, Kyle Hams 30 and Josh Roberts 27.
Kristin Thornton kicked three goals for Peel in a tough afternoon with Pat Travers picking up 22 possessions and Drew Robinson 19.
South Fremantle was without yet another experienced campaigner to take on Perth with Andrew McCarrey suffering a back injury that could have ended his 2012 campaign early, but the Bulldogs showed plenty of fight and ended up beating the Demons by four goals at Fremantle Oval.
The victory moves South Fremantle to five wins on the season and into seventh position on the ladder ahead of Perth by percentage.
The Bulldogs' second straight victory was helped along largely by six goals from league leading goalkicker Ben Saunders and 24 possessions and 26 hit outs from Sean Tighe.
Jayden Woods also kicked three goals with Alex Grima and John Sgherza adding two apiece with Ryan Cook also racking up 24 disposals.
Simon Tunbridge kicked four goals for Perth with Julian Jacobs picking up 26 possessions, Leon Davis 26, Matt Tedesco 25, Alistair Smith 24 and Ross Young 23 to go with the captain's two goals.
