WEST Perth and Claremont kept their undefeated starts to the WAFLW season going with wins on Saturday while East Fremantle won a heart stopper over Swan Districts and Subiaco got back to winning.

A month into the WAFLW season for 2024 and the action has been fascinating with the Round 4 results leaving West Perth and Claremont as the two undefeated sides while East Perth and Peel Thunder are yet to taste a victory.

In between, East Fremantle now has three wins with Subiaco and Swan Districts having two apiece, and South Fremantle has one victory on the board.

The Round 4 WAFLW action got underway on Saturday with East Fremantle beating Swan Districts in a thriller 5.2 (32) to 4.7 (31) at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

It was a dramatic finish with Tamzyn Beros earning a free-kick right on the 50m arc for a push in the back. The rest of the time then expired with an East Fremantle injury meaning Beros had to take her shot with Swans behind by a point from outside 50.

She did make good connection but it couldn’t quite score and the Sharks held on to win by that point.

Chloe Reilly and Serena Gibbs kicked two goals each for East Fremantle with Zippy Fish racking up 27 possessions, Chloe Wrigley 19 (10 tackles) and Ashleigh Gomes 19.

East Perth continued its more competitive showings by pushing Claremont at Sullivan Logistics Stadium but it was the Tigers prevailing in the finish 7.8 (50) to 3.3 (21).
