Slay­ers edge out Mon­grels

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

In a re­ally tight start to the Kar­ratha Dis­tricts Eight­ball As­so­ci­a­tion win­ter sea­son, last year’s pre­miers Mon­grels find them­selves on the bot­tom of the lad­der af­ter Slay­ers eas­ily ac­counted for them with a 9-6 win.

Slay­ers were far too good for Mon­grels, win­ning each round 3-2.

The other three matches all recorded 8-7 re­sults, with War­riors de­feat­ing new­com­ers Stick­men, and the Wreck­ers win­ning their home derby against Rec­a­holics at the Rec Club.

The Pu­n­ish­ers came out on top over An­i­mals in an­other home derby at the golf club.

The close­ness of the matches was not an un­ex­pected re­sult, as most teams have added some depth to their line-ups.

Gen­er­ally, a new team would be a near-cer­tainty to fin­ish bot­tom four, but Stick­men have un­earthed some rare hid­den tal­ent.

This week, they were still with­out a num­ber of their new re­cruits on the first night and man­aged to push the tal­ented War­riors team all the way.

This is a team to watch as they could very well make the fi­nals in their first win­ter se­ries.
