War­riors kick off sea­son in good form

Pilbara News - - Sport - ■ Rob Skin­ner

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.
