Sharks have lots of bite

Pilbara News - - Sport - Kar­ratha Wa­ter Polo As­so­ci­a­tion

It was a case of the quick and the dead in round 2 of the Kar­ratha wa­ter polo com­pe­ti­tion, with fast­paced and thrilling con­tests in the wa­ter.

The Sharks faced the Pi­rates in the first of the women’s fix­tures. It was a tough and even con­test in the first half. Some ex­cel­lent goal­keep­ing from Tay­lor Sparks helped the Pi­rates get a jump in the third but the cool and ex­pe­ri­enced hand of vet­eran Belinda Brooks brought the Sharkies home 8-7.

While the sec­ond women’s game be­tween the Bar­racu­das and Krak­ens was more de­ci­sive in its re­sult, it still de­liv­ered some fast play.

Bar­racuda jet Kate Kala­jzich set the tone of the game with some speedy break­aways but un­for­tu­nately Cu­das were un­able to con­vert scor­ing shots and Krak­ens were up 5-1 at half-time.

Some bril­liant goal­keep­ing re­sulted in plenty of coun­ter­at­tacks from both sides but in the end the Krak­ens were too strong and won 8-2.

It was a sim­i­lar story for the Krak­ens’ men, who also faced off against the Bar­racu­das.

The Cu­das pro­duced some good team­work but a cou­ple of sneaky flicks and a lob from David Rigby had the Krak­ens home, 9-6.

The Cu­das men were back in the wa­ter for a sec­ond fix­ture against a fresh and ea­ger Pi­rates side.

In the end the Pi­rates were too fresh and too strong for the Cu­das, bring­ing it home 9-3.
