Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion is three matches into its in­au­gu­ral pro hockey com­pe­ti­tion, which sees the re­turn of a se­ri­ous hockey com­pe­ti­tion to the Pil­bara with four set teams, match fix­tures, um­pires and a grand fi­nal sched­uled for the end of June.

The first week saw a pro­longed match with three halves to give all play­ers a turn on the pitch.

The sec­ond week in­volved two con­cur­rent games, with Pil­bara Gi­raffes v Pil­bara Pythons start­ing as a fast-paced four-a-side match.

It was a high-scor­ing first half for the Gi­raffes, with Mark Saun­ders and Me­gan Gil­lie dom­i­nat­ing, and though Ni­cole Robin­son saved plenty for the Pythons, they were 9-5 down at half-time.

Ex­tra play­ers af­ter the break turned the game around for the Pythons, and the full-time score was a nail­bit­ing 15-15 draw.

Kar­ratha Seag­ulls won against Kar­ratha Creep­ers.
