Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

Co­ral Trouts had a stun­ning come­from-be­hind win over dan­ger team the Pis­tons in Kar­ratha bas­ket­ball’s round 19.

The Thurs­day night game saw the ex­pe­ri­enced men’s A-grade side blitz their op­po­nents when the chips were down, fir­ing sud­denly late in the sec­ond half and not stop­ping from then on.

They raced from be­ing 29-16 down at half-time to record a 40-37 vic­tory by the fi­nal siren. Trouts’ Wayne Sed­well and Si­mon Kot were es­pe­cially busy at the hoop but the shots were shared around, show­ing a solid team ef­fort.

Mayuga Ma­jik proved too good for long-time ri­vals #Yo­getit on the night and de­feated them by 10 points, 37-27.

In the men’s B-grade line-up, the Heat had an off day and went down fast against an un­der­manned School­ers side, 28-9.

Mean­while, un­der­dog team the Red­backs seemed to be hit­ting their stride, chalk­ing up a sec­ond win in as many weeks with a five­point de­feat of the com­pet­i­tive Car­di­nals.

The Vipers beat Flak­ers by one point, de­spite the other team gain­ing ground and outscor­ing them in the sec­ond half, and the Prodigy also played a close game against Pel­i­cans, win­ning 39-36.

Dom­i­nant women’s A team Hello Trouts recorded a big win over Pegy Fly­ers, 40-12, while Fal­cons beat the Mud Flaps.

In the women’s B games, the Hawks stayed a threat with a 31-13 de­feat of the Drib­blers, break­ing a re­cent run of wins for the side.

Lady Fal­cons de­feated Goat Trouts while Ra­zor­backs col­lected free points from a Sin­ners for­feit.
