Duo returns to help secure win
This week’s action saw the return of Bec Jewkes and Alex MacLeay.
The formidable pair returned to the Karratha Seagulls, and showed having half the season off had not slowed them down. Steve Cook played well in the middle, feeding the ball to Jewkes and MacLeay, with an occasional switch to Sophie Sparkes.
The Pilbara Giraffes played hard, with Tim Ballantyne and Alex Walters covering nearly the whole pitch, and Jacob Innamorati running fast down the right wing, while Paul Montgomery was a wall of defence.
The Seagulls were dominant in the first half, scoring six goals to the Giraffes’ three, but slowed down, leading to a 9-8 win for the Seagulls.
