Northam teenager Sydney Stack has helped the Richmond Tigers walk away with a 25-point win over the Fremantle Dockers during his first AFL game in Perth.

The Tigers started the game strong scoring four straight goals in the first quarter before Fremantle leveled the scores.

The teenager kicked a goal in the third quarter, maintaining the Tigers lead against the home side for the rest of the match.

Stack racked up 18 possessions and seven marks alongside his torpedo that brought Richmond fans to their feet.

The 25-point win marked Stack's first game at Optus Stadium in his home state as a Tiger.

The 19-year-old was recruited to the Tigers in February, as part of the AFL's new Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period.

Stack, who played for the Colts, Reserves and League side for the Perth Demons in the 2018 WAFL season was overlooked in the official draft.

Stack has played every game in the 2019 AFL season since he was named in the round two squad against the GWS Giants where he kicked his first goal. In his six games, Stack has averaged 16.5 disposals and nine handballs.

Fellow Northam rookie Ian 'Bobby' Hill, who was picked up by the GWS Giants in the trade period is yet to make his debut.
