War­riors bat­tle their way to fi­nal win

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

The Wick­ham War­riors have put some de­mons to rest af­ter an epic win over Dampier Out­laws in the Kar­ratha Dis­tricts Eightball As­so­ci­a­tion A-grade grand fi­nal last Wed­nes­day.

War­riors fin­ished the mi­nor rounds as lad­der lead­ers.

They have been in a sim­i­lar po­si­tion the last two years, fin­ish­ing run­ners-up in the grand fi­nal on both oc­ca­sions.

In a close fi­nal, the lead never ex­ceeded two games as War­riors led Out­laws 3-1 early on.

Both teams went game for game for most of the match, bring­ing it down to the last game.

On a night when no team de­served to be run­ner-up, it was War­riors’ Matt Caf­farella who fi­nally broke the drought.

The B-grade grand fi­nal was an all-Kar­ratha Rec Club af­fair as both teams, Rec­a­holics and Wreck­ers are based out of the venue. Rec­a­holics fin­ished out of the top four on per­cent­age and de­feated Pool Sharks to go straight into the fi­nal.

Wreck­ers were gallant in reach­ing the fi­nal, de­feat­ing both Slam­i­nars and Pool Sharks from sev­enth po­si­tion.

In a close start to the match, Wreck­ers won the first round 3-2, but then were never chal­lenged as they went on to take the match from the more fan­cied Rec­a­holics 6-2.
