Fes­tive sea­son brings league to its knees

Pilbara News - - Sport - Kar­ratha Water Polo Association

The fes­tive sea­son took its toll in the year’s penul­ti­mate round of water polo.

Two games were for­feited on Thurs­day as play­ers were forced to choose be­tween their chil­dren’s end of year pre­sen­ta­tions and their sport — clearly a dif­fi­cult choice for some.

The Pi­rates women’s team was a player down for its fix­ture and it showed, with the Krak­ens smash­ing the un­der­manned side 14-3.

Caitlin Read, Jaye Au­das and Por­tia An­gove all had solid per­for­mances for their teams.

Only two play­ers rocked up for the Pi­rates men, which meant the Krak­ens scooped some much-needed points by de­fault.

The Krak­ens women, who were still on fire from their pre­vi­ous game, gave the Krak­ens men a run for their money in an in­ter­club friendly. Both the Sharks and the Bar­racu­das es­caped the curse of the end-ofyear con­cert and fielded full teams for the sec­ond women’s fix­ture.

The Bar­racu­das came away with the win 10-6, with Belinda Brooks, Ash­leigh Holmes and Donna Adams all pro­duc­ing stand-out games.

The Krak­ens men notched up an­other win by de­fault as the Bar­racu­das were un­able to field a team in the fi­nal men’s fix­ture.
