War­riors win but drop out of top four

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

War­riors are do­ing noth­ing wrong to dampen any as­pi­ra­tions of pre­mier­ship favouritism.

As out­right lad­der lead­ers this week, they had to con­tend with Wreck­ers, who two weeks ago were equal sec­ond on the lad­der.

War­riors white­washed the first round 5-0 and fol­lowed up with two 4-1 rounds to em­bar­rass Wreck­ers, who many would con­sider one of the sides favoured to make an im­pres­sion in the fi­nals.

How­ever, they have dropped out of the top four and will be look­ing for some form in the last few rounds to make the fi­nals.

Mon­grels now have some space in sec­ond place, two games ahead of Rec­a­holics, af­ter ground­ing out an 8-7 win. How­ever, that gap could be closed as Mon­grels play War­riors in this week’s matches.

Stick­men were too good for Pu­n­ish­ers, 9-6, and this has pushed them ahead of Wreck­ers into fourth po­si­tion, ahead of Wreck­ers by per­cent­age only.

In the fi­nal match, it was Slay­ers that just got over the line against An­i­mals, 8-7.
