Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Perera

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.
