Trigg carves way to na­tion­als

Joondalup Times - - SPORT -

MARGARET River tri­umphed at the nudie Aus­tralian Board­rid­ers Bat­tle at Trigg on Satur­day, over­com­ing five of WA’s best board­rider clubs.

It was the club’s third win since the Bat­tle se­ries started in 2013, qual­i­fy­ing it for the na­tion­als in New­cas­tle next Fe­bru­ary.

Fel­low fi­nal­ists Trigg Point, Yallingup and Scar­bor­ough showed glimpses of bril­liance and chal­lenged Margaret River at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity, but ul­ti­mately they had to set­tle for sec­ond, third and fourth re­spec­tively.

Trigg Point posted their best re­sult at the nudie Aus­tralian Board­rid­ers Bat­tle and have also qual­i­fied for the na­tional fi­nal on the strength of a com­bined team to­tal of 52.20.

“That was a crazy close fi­nal and it could have gone ei­ther way for us out there,” club spokesman Nick Muntz said.

“This is a big day for our club. We’ve never qual­i­fied for the na­tional fi­nal be­fore and I’m sure that every­one will be putting up their hand to rep­re­sent Trigg Point Board­rid­ers.”
