Pilbara News - - Sport - Alicia Per­era

Wick­ham Wolves and Kar­ratha Fal­cons had their work cut out in Fri­day’s round 10 match, with re­lent­less rain and back­ground mu­sic from the Beats in the Heat fes­ti­val shar­ing Bul­garra Oval mak­ing for dif­fi­cult con­di­tions.

In a hard-fought con­test the Wolves pre­vailed over the Fal­cons 12.11 (83) to 6.4 (40) to con­tinue their dom­i­nant run com­ing off last week’s vic­tory over the lad­der lead­ers, the South Hed­land Swans.

Fal­cons kept pace in the first quar­ter and hung in dur­ing the sec­ond, but the game got away from them af­ter that.

Wick­ham put in an es­pe­cially strong show­ing in the third quar­ter, when they kicked five goals.

Their fi­nal tally of 11 be­hinds for the match showed the score could have been higher.

The re­serves game re­sult was very sim­i­lar with Wolves win­ning 12.11 (83) to 5.7 (37).

Wick­ham booted a steady three ma­jors each quar­ter, with the eight of those com­ing from the com­bined ef­forts of Beau and Har­ley Alec.

The home side were fairly lows­cor­ing for most of the game and only kicked one goal a quar­ter un­til the fi­nal term.

The Fal­cons re­serves are now third on the lad­der, tied with the Kar­ratha Kats with a 5-5 win-loss ra­tio, while the Wolves stay out on top.
