War­riors win back fi­nals pride

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

Mon­grels and War­riors met this week for the first time since Mon­grels’ em­phatic 8-2 grand fi­nal vic­tory. How­ever, it was any­thing but easy. War­riors white­washed Mon­grels in the first round to hold a re­sound­ing 5-0 lead.

Mon­grels would need to pull off some­thing spe­cial to come back from this, al­though they won the next two rounds 3-2.

In the end, War­riors some­what redeemed their grand fi­nal show­ing with a 9-6 win.

Celts had their in­au­gu­ral match in the as­so­ci­a­tion against Wreck­ers, a qual­ity team that fin­ished third in the win­ter com­pe­ti­tion.

While Wreck­ers proved too strong with three 3-2 rounds to win 9-6, it was a promis­ing start for the Celts — a new team which will take a while to learn the rules.

In the other match, Slam­i­nars also found re­venge for their win­ter com­pe­ti­tion B-grade fi­nals loss to Rec­a­holics, win­ning com­fort­ably 10-5.
