Wick­ham Wolves notched up an­other win in their Fri­day night league show­down against the Kar­ratha Fal­cons at Wick­ham Oval last week.

Sec­ond-placed Wolves tri­umphed by 34 points in a game they dom­i­nated on the score­board and while the Fal­cons were never too far be­hind, they could not make up the dif­fer­ence.

Kar­ratha suf­fered from be­ing slow off the mark and fell be­hind early af­ter the Wolves used their usual at­tack­ing ef­fi­ciency to score 5-0 in the first quar­ter to the Fal­cons’ 1-5.

From then on, Wick­ham held on to the lead while Kar­ratha chipped away to keep pace and make any in­roads into the mar­gin they could.

They gath­ered enough mo­men­tum to outscore the Wolves in the fi­nal term and add an im­pres­sive 5.5 to their score­line, nar­row­ing the dif­fer­ence to a lit­tle more than 30 points the game’s end.

The fi­nal score stood at 17.9 (111) to 11.11 (77).

Wolves’ Jar­rod Cross held on to his place at the top of the NPFL top goal kick­ers’ lad­der with six goals for his team. Wick­ham had an­other vic­tory in the re­serves, though it was more even and they did not kick away prop­erly un­til the last quar­ter, win­ning 11.11 (77) to 8.4 (52).

Wolves’ Beau Alec and Fal­cons’ James Van Hoof each scored four goals for their re­spec­tive teams.
