Sharks take a bite out of Falcons in display of dominance
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.
