Dribblers hold off Sinners
After struggling for much of the season, women’s B-grade team the Dribblers stepped up against strong pressure to record a win against the Sinners in round 17 of the Karratha basketball competition last Thursday.
Drawn at 8-all at half-time, the Dribblers brought renewed focus and a strong team effort into the second half and soon managed to edge a few points ahead of their opponents.
The Sinners were hot on their heels though, and nudged evercloser throughout the term, and with three minutes remaining they were only a point behind.
But the Dribblers stood their ground when it counted, scoring the handful of extra points needed and holding on to remain in front and claim another win for the season. The final score stood at 24-19. Young B-grade side the Hawks won an exciting game against Goat Trouts in which both teams worked hard, while the Blazers defeated Lady Falcons in their match-up, 27-18.
