War­riors too good for Wreck­ers, An­i­mals grab first win

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

The Wreck­ers had the un­en­vi­able task of play­ing the War­riors in Wick­ham this week and their re­cent poor starts had been let­ting them down.

The vis­i­tors man­aged to turn that around in the first round, lead­ing 3-2, but that was the end of the good news for the Wreck­ers.

The War­riors had a clean sweep the next round and con­tin­ued with a 4-1 fi­nal round to ac­count eas­ily for the Wreck­ers, 11-4.

“Im­pres­sive” is one way to de­scribe the start of the Stick­men’s sea­son.

De­spite be­ing the new team in the as­so­ci­a­tion, they rat­tled off the first nine games against the Pu­n­ish­ers be­fore clos­ing the match out with a com­fort­able 12-3 win.

Af­ter two nar­row losses, the An­i­mals moved up the lad­der with their first win of the sea­son.

They de­feated the Sam­son Slay­ers, 11-4.

The Mon­grels led all night against the Rec­a­holics, but a good last round by the Rec­a­holics saw them man­age a come­back to level the scores at seven-all.

Mon­grels then won the last game to scrape home 8-7 and move into the top four.

The War­riors are sit­ting pretty at the top of the ta­ble af­ter round three with 32 wins on the board.

The new kids on the block, the Stick­men, are on their tails in sec­ond place, while the Mon­grels and An­i­mals round out the top four. Stick­men have notched up 28 wins and 17 losses so far in their first sea­son.

The An­i­mals, Rec­a­holics, Pu­n­ish­ers, Wreck­ers and Sam­son Slay­ers are all sit­ting on two points, mean­ing po­si­tions four to eight are sep­a­rated by win-loss ra­tio only.
