Pilbara News - - Sport - ■ Jas­min Miller

Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Ju­nior Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion is al­most at the end of the sea­son and another crack­ing week­end of games on Satur­day af­ter­noon high­lighted the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the league.

Teams were greeted by a typ­i­cal sunny day at a busy Kar­ratha Leisure­plex for the third-last round of the reg­u­lar sea­son.

In the 13s age group, the first game saw Salt play Nickol 1 in what was a very close af­fair.

Nickol 1 ran out win­ners with a 1-0 mar­gin in a com­pet­i­tive match.

The next game saw Nickol 2 play Wick­ham in the first of sev­eral high­scor­ing matches.

Nickol 2 proved too strong for Wick- ham, record­ing a com­fort­able 7-1 vic­tory.

The Nickol 4 play­ers were on song in their game against Dampier, record­ing an em­phatic 12-0 win.

In the last match of the round, Nickol 3 had plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties in front of goals to de­feat Glory 4-0.

In the 18s age group, the early game saw Salt take on Nickol 1.

This was a game of missed op­por­tu­ni­ties for both teams, but Salt were able to take the win 3-0 af­ter a stronger first half.

In the late game, Glory proved too strong for Nickol 2 in a high-scor­ing af­fair. Glory piled on six goals to Nickol 2’s one.

With two rounds of the home and away sea­son left be­fore the fi­nals, play-off places are still up for grabs in both age groups.
