Big win against Dampier Sharks pro­pels Kar­ratha Kats to third place

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

It was round 9 vic­tory for the Kar­ratha Kats when they thrashed Dampier Sharks by 74 points on Fri­day.

Kats showed they were not slow­ing down de­spite draw­ing with toptwo team Wickham last week and dom­i­nated for most of the game, putting in an es­pe­cially strong per­for­mance in the first quar­ter when they booted 7.2.

The usu­ally strong Sharks suf­fered from be­ing un­der­manned and were patchy in their abil­ity to get re­sults. While they had a good sec­ond quar­ter and put 4.2 on the board, their first and third terms were score­less.

The fi­nal re­sult was 17.12 (114) to 6.4 (40) to the Kats. The win pro­pels Kats to third place on the lad­der and a game ahead of their close com­pe­ti­tion the Sharks, who re­main neck-and-neck with the Port Hed­land Rovers. Bran­don Col­bung was the Kat’s top goal kicker with four ma­jors and Sharks’ Ash­ley Cooper and Lay­ton Cooper each scored two.

Kar­ratha also got the win in the re­serves game which they led through­out.

Sharks started well but went on to suf­fer from in­ac­cu­rate kick­ing and did not score a goal af­ter half­time.

They were de­feated, 12.10 (82) to 4.6 (30).

The Kats now sit at fourth place on the re­serves lad­der while Sharks are fifth, de­spite hav­ing a higher per­cent­age.
