Creep­ers, Seag­ulls hit their straps

Pilbara News - - Sports - An­gela Bal­lan­tyne

The cooler weather and favourable shift ros­ters re­sulted in an in­crease in play­ers num­bers at the Nickol Bay Pro Hockey com­pe­ti­tion last Wed­nes­day.

This week the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls de­feated the Pil­bara Gi­raffes 13-10.

Steve Cook was in­valu­able in de­fence for the Gi­raffes, along with An­gela Bal­lan­tyn.

Ta­nia Un­der­wood in fine form on the left post for Seag­ulls, slot­ting in per­fectly placed mid-field passes from Tim Bal­lan­tyne.

On the pitch next door, the Pil­bara Pythons got off to a slow start against the Kar­ratha Creep­ers.

Paul Mont­go­mary, Gavin Can­ning and Toyah Chur­ton, dom­i­nated early for Creep­ers and scored six unan­swered goals be­fore the Pythons made it onto the score sheet. Pythons slowly clawed their way back into the game with the un­pass­able Nathan Fitzger­ald in de­fence set­ting up sev­eral goals on the coun­ter­at­tack, but it was too lit­tle too late as Creep­ers won 9-5.
