Tight games fea­tured in Kar­ratha tour­na­ment

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport - Rob Skin­ner

The matches can’t get any closer than they were this week with all games be­ing de­cided 8-7.

The tight matches and up­sets re­sulted in a re­shap­ing of the lad­der. War­riors 8-7 win over Wreck­ers was enough to grab top spot af­ter Mon­grels went down to Rec­a­holics in an en­thralling match.

Mon­grels led 3-2 af­ter the first round but a 4-1 re­ver­sal by Rec­a­holics put them in the box seat at 6-4 up, re­quir­ing Mon­grels to win four of the last five games.

Mon­grels replied with the first three games to lead 7-6 and looked to es­cape an up­set loss but it was not to be as Rec­a­holics won the last two games for their 8-7 win, leapfrog­ging them into fourth po­si­tion ahead of Wreck­ers.

In other games, Tav­ern­ers also had an up­set loss to Pu­n­ish­ers to keep Pu­n­ish­ers in con­tention for a top four spot while Slay­ers put An­i­mals to the sword for the sec­ond time this year to al­most put An­i­mals on the bot­tom of the lad­der.
