Giraffes keep Gulls grounded
Last week's match was a clash of the big boys of Karratha hockey.
A fast-paced, hard-fought match left a few patches of skin on the pitch and and there were a few tumbles over disputed ownership of the ball.
Mark Saunders returned for his first match since the Pro Comp and Oli McAllister played his first match this year.
Newcomer Jeff Grasby played his first game in the Pilbara. The Pilbara Giraffes were the dominant team for most of Wednesday's match. Steve Cook controlled most of the centre play and was supported by McAllister and Marty Shakespeare, and scored 10 times in the first half alone.
Tim Ballantyne, playing for the Karratha Seagulls, is one of the few players able to take on Cook and when he did, Grasby and Saunders were ready to work the quick breakaways and score some goals for the Seagulls who picked up in the second half but not quite enough to catch up.
The final score was 16-9.
