Stick­men rise to top of lad­der ahead of grand fi­nal re­match

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

Stick­men have come out of the blocks on fire at the start of the sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion de­mol­ish­ing their op­po­si­tion and af­ter two rounds sit on top of the lad­der.

This week they showed Pu­n­ish­ers no mercy with a 12–3 drub­bing.

In a short sea­son where only the top two play off in the fi­nal it’s a great start and will give them every op­por­tu­nity to pos­si­bly re­deem their win­ter com­pe­ti­tion grand fi­nal loss.

War­riors played their first match hav­ing had the bye in the first round and as ex­pected eas­ily ac­counted for Rec­a­holics win­ning 10 -5.

But in the other match Wreck­ers, one of the teams ex­pected to vie for a top two berth, took an early hit go­ing down to Ball Break­ers 8–7.

They led 6–4 go­ing into the last round but could man­age only one game as Ball Break­ers came from be­hind and, at 7-all, Danny Davies took the Ball Break­ers to their first win as a newly formed team.

The re­sults have the Stick­men sit­ting on top with an 80 per cent win­loss record.

The War­riors and Mon­grels are equal sec­ond with a 67 per cent record.

The Mon­grels take on the Stick­men this week in what will be an in­ter­est­ing grand fi­nal re­match.

The Pu­n­ish­ers and Rec­a­holics are yet to win a round.
