Pistons gear up to be the team to beat
New men’s A-grade team Pistons are fast cementing their status as a force to be reckoned with after handing 2015-16 premiers #Yogetit their first defeat of the season last Thursday.
In an exciting first half, Pistons had the early lead before #Yogetit came back from behind and managed to overtake them by a few points by half-time. The teams remained close in the second term, but halfway through the Pistons dug in. They had levelled the score at 10 minutes in and after that, the goals kept coming thick and fast.
Though #Yogetit were hot on their heels, Pistons did enough to hold them at bay by a few crucial points, handing them the game 3428.
Mayuga Majik and Coral Trouts played another fast, skilled game, but it was one in which the Majik were consistently ahead thanks to some stand-out shooting.

Trout School subjected Pardoo Katz to a 40-point thrashing.
Women’s A-grade team Hello Trouts were ahead throughout their physical and high-pressure match against the Falcons and brought it home with a confident 10-point win.
Meanwhile the women’s B-grade match between the Hawks and Lady Falcons was neck-and-neck and went down to the wire, with the teams matching each other goal for goal in the final minutes. It ended in a 32-all draw. Roebourne Razorbacks had the edge in their close and competitive match against the Dribblers and won by six points.
In men’s B-grade, the Cardinals and Schoolers faced off in a close game in which tensions ran high until the last, with the young Schoolers’ side winning by a mere three points. Flakers dominated against new team Karratha Pelicans and defeated them 33-16.
