Strong third quar­ter pow­ers Wolves to win over Sharks

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Wick­ham Wolves have con­tin­ued their win­ning ways with a 44-point win over the Dampier Sharks at Windy Ridge.

The first quar­ter was a tight af­fair as both sides looked to make their mark early in the game.

For Wick­ham a win would keep them in touch with the Kats while the Sharks needed the points to keep them in the top three.

They went into the first break sep­a­rated by two points, and by half-time the Wolves led by just five. The third quar­ter proved a bruis­ing af­fair for the Sharks, how­ever, as the vis­i­tors stepped up to the plate to take the game away from Dampier.

Stephen Grigg was a men­ace up front as the Wolves worked to­wards a six-goal quar­ter to be ahead 4.4 (28) to 10.12 (72) at the fi­nal change. It was a closer fi­nal term but the dam­age had been done, with the Wolves win­ning 7.5 (47) to 13.13 (91). Grigg booted five goals for the game to move him­self into sec­ond on the top goal-scor­ers list behind sta­ble­mate Claude Taylor. The home side did claim a morale-boost­ing win in the re­serves to help keep them in touch with the top four. The Sharks booted 7.8 (50) to 6.7 (43) to move level on points with the Wolves and South Hed­land Swans.
