Pirates dominate the pool
The third round of the Karratha water polo competition was dominated by the Pirates, who had a win in both the male and female games on Thursday evening.
In the first ladies match, the experience of the Barracudas outmatched the new Krakens team, coming out with four quick goals to start the first quarter.
From there the Cudas powered home to win 11-5, with four impressive goals from Alex Dobbin.
Fairest and best votes went to the Barracudas’ Kylie Vial, Dobbin and Nikki Lampard.
In the second ladies game, the Pirates defeated a tired Krakens team 8-5 after a stand-out performance from Anouska Angove.
Angove’s four goals earned her three best and fairest nominations, followed by Natalie Hayes and Hayley Edwards from the Krakens.
In the men’s competition, the Krakens had better luck narrowly defeating the Barracudas 8-7.
Fairest and best votes were awarded to Krakens’ Byron Newbold and David Rigby, as well as Nigel Kroonstuiver after his threegoal effort for the Cudas.
In the second game the Krakens were outclassed by the Pirates, losing the game 5-12.
Ben Biddiscome and Dan Glover received fairest and best votes for the Pirates, while the Krakens’ David Rigby received his second nomination for the evening.
Over the weekend, there was a fantastic turnout at the junior flippa ball, with more than 20 kids hitting the pool for the first session.
