Kats’ win over Wolves puts them in final
The Karratha Kats have lived up to their favourites tag to advance to the North Pilbara Football League reserves grand final with an eight-point win over the Wickham Wolves.
In a gritty and hard-fought match, scores were level at halftime before the Kats edged away in the second half to win 7.6 (48) to 6.4 (40).
Ross Bassett and Michael Smith led the way for the Kats, booting two goals apiece, while the Wolves shared the workload with six multiple goalscorers.
The Kats will now advance to the premiership decider and await the winner of next week’s preliminary final between the Wickham Wolves and South Hedland Swans. The Wolves will host the Swans after the Hedland side upset the Dampier Sharks in Dampier.
