Late goal hits Thun­der’s run

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Perera

■ Men’s B-grade top team the Thun­der had their first dis­ap­point­ment back from the break in round 20, with a draw against tough com­peti­tors Roe­bourne War­riors.

Though their match had been close, the Thun­der looked like they had it in the bag at 33-30 min­utes be­fore the end.

But a late three-poin­ter from the War­riors handed the Thun­der their se­cond draw for the sea­son.

The Flak­ers and the Heat faced each other in a bot­tom-two matchup and, with both sens­ing it was a game they could win, it was a fierce fight.

The Heat fought harder and out­lasted a se­cond-half Flak­ers of­fen­sive to win 28-19.

The Vipers came back from be­hind against the Ti­tans and won 28-20, and the Car­di­nals had an ef- fort­less win over Cy­clones Men.

In men’s A-grade, lad­der lead­ers Mayuga Ma­jik had a scare from bot­tom team Par­doo Katz, who, af­ter beat­ing se­cond-placed #Yo­getit weeks ago, are prov­ing they should not be un­der­es­ti­mated.

The Katz edged ahead around half-time and held that lead early in the se­cond half, to the de­light of their sup­port­ers.

But Mayuga even­tu­ally sur­passed them by eight points to main­tain their win­ning streak.

Se­cond on the lad­der #Yo­getit’s re­cent shaky form con­tin­ued when they lost to third-placed Co­ral Trouts.

In women’s B-grade ac­tion, se­cond-placed Mud Flaps suf­fered a six-point loss to Pegy Fly­ers, Just Us dom­i­nated for an­other week with a de­ci­sive win over the Blaz­ers, the Fal­cons de­feated Cy­clones Women 31-13, and the Beavers beat Goat Trouts by one point.
