Mon­grels, Rec­a­holics take home premier­ship

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

The Kar­ratha Dis­tricts Eight­ball As­so­ci­a­tion A and B-grade grand fi­nals were held ear­lier in the month at the Tam­brey Tav­ern.

In the A-grade, it was Mon­grels and War­riors, with­out a doubt the two best-per­form­ing teams of the year with only one soli­tary game sep­a­rat­ing them at the end of the home and away rounds and in the B-grade it was Rec­a­holics and An­i­mals. An­i­mals had a great last round to come from nowhere and earn the dou­ble chance.

In the A-grade fi­nal, it was all one-way traf­fic as the Mon­grels led from the start win­ning the first round 4-1 to take a stran­gle­hold on the match.

Us­ing the score­board pres­sure, Mon­grels didn’t let up and the re­sult was de­cided by the end of the sec­ond round, 8-2 in one of the more onesided fi­nals in re­cent years.

Mon­grels player James Corea set the tone for the night in the first game where he played a fault­less game and com­pletely dom­i­nated.

From there the Mon­grels play­ers con­tin­ued to ap­ply pres­sure in every game and while they also had a bit of luck run their way, they were the more pol­ished team on the night and a well-de­served premier­ship team.

In the B-grade match, there was plenty of in­ter­est in what was a high-stan­dard game that went down to the wire. Rec­a­holics went into the last round 6-4 up against the An­i­mals but two games later it was 6-6, then 7-7 and it fi­nally came down to the very last game of the night.

For­tu­nately for Rec­a­holics, Craig Naz­zari, who had had a great season, was there to take them home.

Rec­a­holics got the last game and the B-grade premier­ship that went with it.
