Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport - Greg Emms

The third round of the home-an­d­away sea­son of the Kar­ratha District Ju­nior Soc­cer com­pe­ti­tion was played on Satur­day.

In the 14s age group, the first game saw the derby be­tween the pre­vi­ously un­de­feated Nickol 2 and Nickol 3.

The game started as a tight af­fair be­fore Nickol scored and from there were never headed, run­ning out the win­ners. Nickol 3 won the game four to nil. In the sec­ond game of the day, Salt played host to Wick­ham and proved too strong for the vis­i­tors scor­ing five to nil.

In the last game, Glory played Nickol 1 who, de­spite their best ef­forts, were not able to keep Glory out, with Glory run­ning out the win­ners five to nil.

In the 18s age group, the early game saw an­other derby be­tween Nickol 1 and Nickol 2.

This was a see-saw­ing match with Nickol 1 dom­i­nat­ing early but not able to put the ball into the net.

Nickol 2 took their chances and were lead­ing at the break.

In the sec­ond half, Nickol 2 con­tin­ued to have the run of the play be­fore Nickol 1 reap­plied the pres­sure and scored two late goals.

How­ever, they even­tu­ally ran out of time with Nickol 2 com­ing out the win­ners kick­ing five goals to Nickol 1’s two.

In the late game, Glory played Salt in what turned out to be a one-sided af­fair with Glory run­ning out com­fort­able win­ners scor­ing a whop­ping 15 goals to one.
