Flakers and Heat notch wins to end their season
Several underdogs had their day last Thursday in the last round of the Karratha Basketball Association’s regular fixtures.
Men’s B-grade side the Flakers went out with their third win of the 22-game season after beating thirdplaced Cardinals 24-22.
Bottom-placed Flakers led for most of the game thanks to strong scoring, and did well to withstand a late Cardinals offensive to notch up the win.
Meanwhile, seventh-placed Heat chalked up their fifth win of the season over top-four side the Roebourne Warriors.
The Heat were up throughout the game, and though the Warriors drew neck and neck towards the end, the Heat pulled further in front to win 34-23.
Top team Thunder suffered their second big loss in as many weeks, this time to the Titans. With only five players, they lost 21-56.
The Vipers narrowly beat Cyclones Men 30-27.
In women’s B-grade, Mud Flaps were too good for Cyclones Women, Hello Trouts dominated against Timeout, and Pegy Flyers had a narrow win over the Sinners. Goat Trouts forfeited to Just Us. Mayuga Majik and #Yogetit put on an exciting, fast-paced match in men’s A-grade.
In the final minutes of the first half, the Majik streaked ahead to a half-time lead and extended that to win 42-22, consolidating their top spot on the A-grade ladder.
The Coral Trouts beat Pardoo Katz 39-23. Preliminary finals begin next week.
