Mon­grels net win over the bench­mark War­riors

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

Last year’s pre­mier­ship team, Mon­grels had a shock loss to Slay­ers in the first week of the sea­son and have had un­con­vinc­ing wins in the fol­low­ing weeks but a con­vinc­ing hard-fought win over lad­der lead­ers in the War­riors shows they are back.

Mon­grels won each of the three rounds 3–2 to fin­ish 9–6 win­ners against War­riors, who up un­til now have eas­ily been the bench­mark of the com­pe­ti­tion.

War­riors pre­vi­ous re­sults en­sure they stay at the top of the lad­der but only on per­cent­age, just ahead of Stick­men and Mon­grels.

Stick­men had a great fin­ish against Rec­a­holics. At 6–4 down go­ing into the last round, they had a clean sweep of games to run out 9–6 win­ners to re­tain sec­ond po­si­tion.

Wreck­ers had an easy 11–4 win against An­i­mals, who put up lit­tle re­sis­tance with the ex­cep­tion of Steve Ste­wart, who won three from three in the los­ing side.

In the other match, Slay­ers jumped off the bot­tom of the lad­der and rel­e­gated Pu­n­ish­ers to that po­si­tion by post­ing a 9–6 win against Pu­n­ish­ers.
