Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Perera

A top-two men’s B-grade show­down in round 12 saw the School­ers emerge with a nar­row, hard­fought 32-30 vic­tory over Heat on Thurs­day..

In the first half, se­cond-placed team School­ers were the stand­outs and shot 19 points, while Heat strug­gled to make an im­pact on the score­board and had only recorded five points by half-time. But Heat turned the mo­men­tum around with an im­pres­sive scor­ing ef­fort in the se­cond half, rack­ing up 25 points within 20 min­utes.

School­ers could not quite keep up with their pace, and be­fore long, the Heat were hot on their heels, get­ting within two points of their score but School­ers hung on, and in the end, their early set-up was enough to win them the game.

In the rest of the men’s B-grade fix­tures, Car­di­nals beat Red­backs, 37-17, while Vipers bested the Flak­ers by seven points.

In women’s B-grade, the Roe­bourne Ra­zor­backs beat Sin­ners in a close game.

Ra­zor­backs were 21-12 up at half­time but in the se­cond term, their scor­ing ta­pered off as Sin­ners dug deep to come back from be­hind, get­ting them within three points with a fi­nal score of 29-26.

Goat Trouts beat Lady Fal­cons, 29-17. Women’s A-side Pegy Fly­ers missed out on what could have been their se­cond win of the sea­son, los­ing by a mere point in a tight game against Mud Flaps.

Hello Trouts thrashed Fal­cons, 42-11.
