Fly­ers on high af­ter win

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

Pegy Fly­ers got their first win of the sea­son in last Thurs­day’s round 11, af­ter a hard­fought, skil­ful game against the Fal­cons.

Swift play from both sides in the first half made progress far from easy­go­ing, and the match score­board stood at 13-all at half-time.

But the Fly­ers broke away early in the sec­ond and es­tab­lished a 10-point buf­fer.

They kept up the scor­ing pace from then on, as the Fal­cons were un­able to close the mar­gin, and were re­warded with a 33-24 win.

Hello Trouts de­feated Mud Flaps, 51-17 in the other women’s A-grade game.

In the men’s A fix­tures, the Pis­tons and Trouts School clashed in a match that was in­tense from the mo­ment the whis­tle blew.

Trouts led by a hand­ful of points for much of the sec­ond half, but held on for long enough to claim a five-point win.

In men’s B-grade, the Heat and Flak­ers faced off in a game that be­came a nail­biter in the dy­ing min­utes, when Flak­ers came back from be­hind and within two points of their op­po­nents.

Pel­i­cans and Red­backs played a fast and fu­ri­ous game that saw their score stand­ing even at half-time, be­fore the Pel­i­cans got in front early in the sec­ond half and from then on raced their way to a 12-point win.

Mean­while, Prodigy out­ran the School­ers to beat them, 42-34, and Vipers de­feated Car­di­nals, 37-28.

In women’s B matches, the Drib­blers worked hard and had a fair amount of play against Goat Trouts, but were let down badly by in­ac­cu­rate scor­ing, and Lady Fal­cons beat out Sin­ners in a tight game.
