Sharks take a bite out of Fal­cons in dis­play of dom­i­nance

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

The Dampier Sharks sub­jected the Kar­ratha Fal­cons to a 74-point loss in their round 6 league game at Windy Ridge Oval on Fri­day.

Dampier con­tin­ued their promis­ing form of the past few weeks and made con­sis­tent im­pact on the scoreboard through­out the game.

But the Fal­cons’ run of bad luck so far this sea­son con­tin­ued.

The team man­aged only two goals for the game, which both came in the sec­ond quar­ter.

To add in­sult to in­jury, two of their play­ers were also pe­nalised with yel­low cards. The Kar­ratha side had a lot more scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, but suf­fered badly from in­ac­cu­rate kick­ing.

The fi­nal score was 13.15 (93) to 2.7 (19) to Dampier. Sharks’ Guy Lang­don and Lay­ton Cooper kicked three ma­jors each and shared the goal­kick­ing spoils with six of their fel­low play­ers. The re­sult means Sharks hang on to third place over Port Hed­land Rovers, while Fal­cons re­main on the bot­tom.

For­tu­nately, the greater suc­cess of the Fal­cons’ Re­serves side so far this sea­son show the club has depth to spare. Fal­cons were up for most of the game, and though the Sharks came storm­ing back in the last half and nar­rowed the mar­gin, they still tri­umphed by four points, 8.6 (54) to 7.8 (50).

Fal­cons’ James Van Hoof and Sharks’ Ty­tus Hunter Aragu were the top goal­kick­ers on the field, each scor­ing three.
