Tight ac­tion in the pool

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph Sport - Tay­lar Amonini

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.
