A head knock forced Busselton product Jye Amiss to make an early exit from Fremantle’s shock western derby loss to West Coast on Saturday night.

After falling into the knee of Eagles defender Jeremy McGovern while attempting to take a mark in the goal square inside the game’s first five minutes, the 21-year-old key forward could only watch from the sidelines as his side’s derby winning streak of five games came to an end with a 38-point defeat.

He has entered the league’s 12-day concussion protocols, ruling him out of Saturday’s clash with Western Bulldogs.

West Coast’s upset victory saw their South West pair of Brady Hough (Harvey) and Reuben Ginbey (Dunsborough) win consecutive games for the first time at AFL level.

Hough dominated his individual battle with Docker Michael Walters, limiting the veteran to just seven disposals and a late goal while registering 17 disposals himself, as Ginbey gathered 18 disposals and laid four tackles.
