Mayuga home in thriller

Pilbara News - - Sport - ■ Ali­cia Perera

Team #Yo­getit’s luck ran out at the wrong time in their semi­fi­nal against A-grade ri­vals Mayuga Ma­jik last Thurs­day.

#Yo­getit were ahead by sev­eral points for most of the game, but Mayuga drew level with five min­utes left.

Mayuga man­aged a cru­cial one-poin­ter in the last minute, and though #Yo­getit des­per­ately tried to score and had a prime op­por­tu­nity with two foul shots af­ter the siren, they could not con­vert.

Mayuga go straight to the fi­nal, while #Yo­getit must face Co­ral Trouts, who knocked out Par­doo Katz in their match.

Women’s team Hello Trouts gave Just Us a run for their money in a phys­i­cal game, fin­ish­ing with a five-point loss.

The Blaz­ers stunned the Mud Flaps in the se­cond half of their game, tak­ing the score­line from 11-all at half-time to win 22-15.

In men’s B-grade, Car­di­nals up­set the long-dom­i­nant Thun­der with an in­cred­i­ble scor­ing dis­play in the first half and main­tained that form in the se­cond, win­ning 31-28.

The Vipers played a great game with only five play­ers, but were over­taken by the light­ning-fast War­riors and lost by four points.

Pre­lim­i­nary fi­nals are on this Thurs­day, fol­lowed by an all-day grand fi­nal round on Satur­day.
