Dampier Sharks had an im­por­tant win over Port Hed­land Rovers in their Satur­day night round 8 league clash.

The 13.13 (91) to 10.10 (70) re­sult to the Sharks puts some dis­tance be­tween the two teams, which along with the Kar­ratha Kats have been oc­cu­py­ing the mid­dle of the ta­ble in close com­pany so far this sea­son.

Sharks were con­sis­tently up a few goals from the start and kept up that pace to grad­u­ally ex­tend their lead to 21 points by the fi­nal siren.

Rovers were never far be­hind but could not man­age to catch up and nar­row the mar­gin.

Sharks had sev­eral high goal scor­ers in Ash­ley Cooper, Har­ri­son Weed­ing and Shane McIn­tosh who scored three each.

Ben Ga­sior also slot­ted in three for the Rovers.

The re­sult sends the Sharks up to third place on the NPFL lad­der, jump­ing over the Kats af­ter they drew with the Wick­ham Wolves this round.

Rovers are now a game down on both teams and sit­ting in fifth place.

Ear­lier in the night, the Sharks re­serves side thrashed the Rovers, 12.11 (83) to 2.2 (14).
