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.
