Ded­i­cated Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion play­ers lifted to a new high last Wed­nes­day with a fast-paced and highly skilled game that left ev­ery­one sat­is­fied at the fi­nal siren.

The Pil­bara Gi­raffes came out hard and fast.

Fa­ther-son duo Nevin and Marty Shakespeare had great games and worked bril­liantly with new mem­ber Ryan Pil­lar out on the pitch for the first time in Kar­ratha.

The Gi­raffes were able to keep the ball mov­ing out wide, pass­ing right around the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls’ mid­field.

The Seag­ulls started some­what slower, but lifted in the sec­ond half.

Craig Boyce re­turned for his sec­ond week of Pil­bara hockey and re­ally helped lift the Seag­ulls game, putting pres­sure on the op­po­si­tion from the de­fen­sive half along with An­gela Bal­lan­tyne.

With Paul Mont­gomery off in the sec­ond half be­cause of in­jury, Seag­ulls at­tack­ers Alex Wal­ter and Tim Bal­lan­tyne upped their pass­ing game to score some goals and start clos­ing the gap.

The Gi­raffes de­feated Seag­ulls 11-8. the
