Round 14 got off to an ex­cit­ing start with Krack­ens women get­ting over the top of Pirates 8-7.

Laura Hill had her best game of the sea­son, with great sup­port from Nat Hayes.

Both play­ers scored three goals each and dis­played some piv­otal steals and de­fen­sive work to lead their team to a nar­row win.

Anouska An­gove had an­other strong game, scor­ing five goals for Pirates. How­ever, she was un­able to level the scores, with a shot on goal in the last 30 sec­onds just go­ing wide and Krack­ens were able to hold on for a nar­row win.

The sec­ond women’s game was a one-sided af­fair with lad­der lead­ers Bar­racu­das hav­ing a com­fort­able win over Sharks 12-3.

Sharks fielded an un­der­strength side with­out Alex Gal­lagher and Erin Shay­lor. How­ever, Sharks’ new play­ers worked tire­lessly for the four quar­ters with Ash­leigh Holmes and Talia Crowhurst get­ting their team on the score­board with some qual­ity goals.

Bar­racu­das shared the scor­ing with five in­di­vid­ual goal scor­ers, led by Julie-Anne Elkins and Amy Kroon­s­tu­iver with four goals apiece.

In the men’s games, Bar­racu­das had a tough night los­ing 9-2 and 8-2 to Pirates and Krack­ens re­spec­tively. Justin An­gove led the scor­ing for Pirates with five goals. How­ever, Bar­racu­das goal­keeper and masters player Gary Vin­cent had a night out in goals, sav­ing a num­ber of one-on-one goals, and was named best player in both games. In the sec­ond game against Krack­ens, By­ron New­bold and Dave Rigby con­tin­ued their strong form for the sea­son com­bin­ing for five goals.
