Pool com­pe­ti­tion heats up dur­ing fi­nals ap­proach

Pilbara News - - Sport -

With just three fix­tures left in the sea­son, teams are giv­ing their all on the run home to the fi­nals.

The first of the women’s games was a close match be­tween the Bar­racu­das and Sharks. De­spite be­ing a few play­ers down the Bar­racu­das ral­lied against a well-oiled Sharks side. Bar­racu­das gained num­bers late in the game and with a few quick goals de­feated Sharks 7-5.

A full-strength Krak­ens team put on a clinic against the Pi­rates in the sec­ond women’s fix­ture. Laura Hill and Caitlin Read dom­i­nated the scor­ing for Krak­ens and de­spite gusty ef­forts from Pi­rates’ Por­tia An­gove and Nikki Roach, won 11-2.

The Pi­rates men showed no mercy against a bat­tle-torn Krak­ens. Justin An­gove, Ben Bid­dis­combe and Hayden Linn had a field day with 13 of the Pi­rates’ 16 goals. Krak­ens lost 16-1. It was a tighter game be­tween the Pi­rates and Bar­racu­das men. Rhys Knight loos­ened the shoul­der up with a few in the back of the net but it wasn’t enough to with­hold the Pi­rates, who were too strong through the scor­ing of Justin An­gove and Hayden Linn.
