Pis­tons fail to fire in end

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

The Pis­tons were unlucky to miss out on what could have been a stun­ning come-from-be­hind re­sult to­wards the end of their round 10 men’s A-grade game again Par­doo Katz on Thurs­day.

Par­doo were in good form and dom­i­nated their op­po­nents through­out the first half, go­ing to half-time at 33-14.

But 10 min­utes into the sec­ond half, the Pis­tons came storm­ing back, launch­ing a blis­ter­ing of­fen­sive on­slaught in which two and three-pointer shots rained in.

Five min­utes later, Par­doo were only one point up with the score­board at 44-43.

But they fought back, and their ac­cu­rate scor­ing when given sev­eral free-throw op­por­tu­ni­ties al­lowed them to edge out their op­po­nents by mere points in the dy­ing min­utes.

They won 47-44 to get a much­needed win on the board.

#Yo­getit re­main on top of the men’s A-grade lad­der after de­feat­ing Trouts School 38-24, while Mayuga Ma­jik de­feated Coral Trouts 36-19.

In women’s B-grade, the Hawks v Goat Trouts game had sup­port­ers on the edge of their seats when it was a 20-all draw at full-time but there were two free throws pend­ing for the Hawks after the fi­nal siren.

Hawks’ Faith Hall shot one in, hand­ing her team the win by one point.

Blazers beat Lady Fal­cons de­spite their op­po­nents try­ing to strike back from be­hind late in the sec­ond half.

While it wasn’t quite enough in the end, the late ef­fort did suc­ceed in nar­row­ing the fi­nal mar­gin to a five-point dif­fer­ence.

Mean­while Sin­ners beat Drib­blers con­fi­dently with a 31-16 score.

Young men’s B-grade side the School­ers added an­other win to their tally with a vic­tory over Red­backs, while the Heat de­feated Vipers and Car­di­nals beat the Pel­i­cans.

In the di­vi­sion’s other match of the night, Prodigy’s fast and of­fen­sive play en­abled them to break away from an ex­tremely tight first half against the Flak­ers to get a lead in the sec­ond and even­tu­ally win 33-24. In the women’s A-grade, Mud Flaps and Hello Trouts had nar­row wins over the Fal­cons and Pegy Fly­ers re­spec­tively.
