Pilbara News - - Sport - Alicia Per­era

Mayuga Ma­jik have risen to the top of the men’s A-grade in round 14 by beat­ing long-term ri­vals #Yo­getit in a close game, af­ter be­ing only sep­a­rated by one point at half-time.

The at­mos­phere was tense in the fi­nal five min­utes of Thurs­day’s game as the mar­gin re­mained small enough for ei­ther team to win. Lead­ing team Ma­jik fought to get clear while #Yo­getit tried to catch up.

But the Ma­jik looked like the dom­i­nant side and they man­aged to main­tain their lead to win, 24-19.

Third-placed Trouts School also beat Par­doo Katz in their game, 4129, de­spite an im­pres­sive early sec­ond half come­back from their op­po­nents.

Co­ral Trouts had a good 12-point win over the Pis­tons de­spite hav­ing only five play­ers on the court.

Pis­tons strug­gled to score in the first half, go­ing to half-time with eight points to the Trouts’ 25, which hurt their chances de­spite a com­pet­i­tive ef­fort in the sec­ond half.

In the women’s A-grade games, the Fal­cons beat the Pegy Fly­ers by six points, while lad­der lead­ers Hello Trouts re­main far ahead of the pack with a big­ger win over Mud Flaps, 32-18. Women’s B-grade team Hawks had a vic­tory over the Ra­zor­backs and Lady Fal­cons beat the Drib­blers, 22-8.

In the men’s B-grade fixtures, the Car­di­nals had a sur­prise win over the Heat, thrash­ing them 5318.

Prodigy sus­tained their good form in a de­feat over the Red­backs and Flak­ers stamped their author­ity on their game against the Pel­i­cans, win­ning 42-25.
