Clinical Sharks show plenty of bite to spoil Falcons stalwart’s day
Three rounds into the new NPFL season, the Dampier Sharks are consolidating their reputation as a side not to be underestimated while the Karratha Falcons remain winless after their Friday night game at Bulgarra Oval.
Away side the Sharks dominated throughout the match, winning with a final score of 10.12 (72) to 4.3 (27).
They began well with 3.3 in the first quarter to the Falcons’ 1.1 and consistently built from there.
Most shots on goal throughout the game were the Sharks’ and the final tally showed with better accuracy their score could have been at least doubled.
While the Falcons hung on and stayed in the game, they were unable to break through and get anywhere near the same chances on goal.
Guy Langdon was the Sharks’ best goalkicker with four goals, while his teammate Deon Alec and Falcons’ Michael Formanczyk scored two each.
However, the game was well worth celebrating for the Falcons for the 200th game milestone it marked for player Brett McCormack, who ran onto the field through a banner with his children and his teammates.
The Falcons had better luck in their reserves match, taking it to the Sharks with an impressive 12.12 (84) to 4.3 (27) final result.
They did the damage early, kicking to a 5.1 to 0.0 lead in the first quarter and, despite some inaccuracies in front of goal, kept extending the margin.
Brett McCormack celebrated his 200th game with the club at the weekend.
