Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

Dampier Sharks have moved up into sec­ond po­si­tion on the North Pil­bara Foot­ball League lad­der af­ter a per­cent­age-boost­ing maul­ing of Port Hed­land Rovers in their round 12 game.

Play­ing at Windy Ridge Oval on Satur­day, Sharks did not hold back on their way to kick­ing a mas­sive 25.15 (165) to Rovers’ 0.3 (3) in an im­por­tant win for the build­ing side.

Rovers strug­gled to score, only man­ag­ing a few points over the whole game while the Sharks cap­i­talised in their mis­sion to move up the lad­der with fi­nals fast ap­proach­ing.

Sharks player Guy Lang­don played a ma­jor role, kick­ing six goals, while David Wal­ley and Deon Alec kicked four each and Jono Bin­salleh scored three.

The win means the Sharks move above Kar­ratha Kats on the lad­der on per­cent­age, with both sides hav­ing an 8-4 win-loss ra­tio for the sea­son so far.

Mean­while, the Rovers, who have had a dif­fi­cult sea­son, re­main fifth on the lad­der.

Rovers fared far bet­ter in the re­serves match, how­ever, where they got a big win by de­feat­ing Sharks 17.8 (110) to 3.12 (30).

Rovers’ early set-up and bet­ter con­ver­sion rate put them in good stead to win the game.

Rovers are in third place on the re­serves lad­der and Sharks are trail­ing in last place.
