Warriors too good for Wreckers, Animals grab first win
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.
