Warriors kick off season in good form
Karratha and Districts Eight Ball Association season is finally underway and the first week has yielded some very close results.
Warriors again will be the team to beat having finished on top of the ladder in both winter and summer competitions and going on to be premiers in both these competitions last year.
Taverners had the unenviable task of knocking the Warriors off their perch in the first week of the season and made a real contest of it.
They led after the first round 3-2 but at five-all at the end of the second round it was the team that played better in the last round.
It came down to the last game and Warriors prevailed to set the tone as they aim to back up last year’s results.
At the Karratha Rec Club it was a home derby as Wreckers also narrowly defeated Recaholics 8–7.
In another home derby at the Karratha Golf Club it was Punishers 9 who were too good for Animals 6 to put Punishers on top of the table in week one.
Mongrels had the bye but are likely to play a makeup match as another team, Samson Slayers, has belatedly registered to play another team out of the Samson Tavern.
