Katz win by whisker right on the buzzer

Pilbara News - - Pilibra Sport - Ali­cia Perera

Par­doo Katz chalked up their se­cond shock win against #Yo­getit since com­ing back from the break in round 21, with a de­cid­ing goal in the very last se­cond of play.

Se­cond A-grade side #Yo­getit were far from pleased to lose to the bot­tom-placed Katz back in round 18, and this game was even closer.

With one minute left they looked clear at four points up, but the Katz struck back with a three-poin­ter, fol­lowed by a des­per­ate two­pointer as the siren sounded. It got them over the line by one point against their dis­ap­pointed op­po­nents.

The Co­ral Trouts couldn’t man­age their own sur­prise win against Mayuga Ma­jik, who were in fine form and dom­i­nated through­out.

The Vipers handed a de­pleted Thun­der side only their se­cond, and by far big­gest, loss of the sea­son in men’s B-grade. The top team were low on play­ers and looked flat, and the se­cond-placed Vipers cap­i­talised. Thun­der were held to five points for most of the game and were beaten 29-15.

Mean­while, top-four ri­vals Car­di­nals and War­riors put on a fast­paced thriller.

The War­riors barely reg­is­tered on the score­board in the first half while the Car­di­nals fired in at­tack, but they came storm­ing back from be­hind in the se­cond and were drawn with five min­utes left.

Both teams dug deep but Car­di­nals got the cru­cial points needed to win, 28-23. The Heat de­feated Cy- clone’s men 39-32 and the Ti­tans beat the Flak­ers.

In women’s B-grade, Hello Trouts had a good win against the Blaz­ers, and Goat Trouts beat Sin­ners by only two points.

Just Us blitzed Time­out and Mud Flaps de­feated the Fal­cons.
