Tight action in the pool
Week three of the Hedland season brought some nail-biters last week, with Piranhas and White Pointers victors on the night.
Game one was a tough match between the composite team and Dragons, with Brad Horseman scoring a goal in the final minutes for the composite team to take the win 9-8.
Despite a strong start by the composite team, Dragons’ Noel Morrison and Nathan Groch managed to claw the team into the lead until the last minute of the game.
The first women’s game of the night saw Piranhas take a landslide victory from Vipers.
A big start sealed the game for Piranhas, ending the first quarter 4-0.
While Vipers’ veteran goalie managed to get out of the box halfway through the game and put a score on the board for the team, it wasn’t enough to take the win.
Best players were Sophia Morton, Timara Simpson and Erin Brierly.
Blackstars went down in the third game against White Pointers 9-5, despite missing Josh Blair because of illness.
With only one goal apiece in the first quarter, Pointers blew the competition apart in the second quarter and it all went downhill from there for the Blackstars.
In an unsurprising result, Brad Horseman was named best player, followed by Daniel Lacey and Jared Ahlers.
The final game of the night was a low-scoring nail biter, with Aztecs only managing to get up by one point against Orcas.
Tess Melberg managed to break away in the second half of the game, scoring two goals for Aztecs, making her best player for the game.
Carmen Walsh and Jess Edmonds were also named best players, with their fine goalkeeping skills on show.
