War­riors up­set Wreck­ers as Stick­men im­press

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

Af­ter round 4 the KDEBA Sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion is turn­ing from a likely four-team race into three.

The Wreck­ers, re­garded as a top-four team, were never go­ing to have a bet­ter op­por­tu­nity than this week to knock over a de­pleted War­riors team and get them­selves back into con­tention.

War­riors went into the match with only two of their recog­nised play­ers and had to scrape to­gether a team, but the sub­sti­tutes were more than ca­pa­ble and still over­whelmed the Wreck­ers in a com­fort­able 9-6 win that was set up from a 4-1 first round.

The Stick­men con­tin­ued to im­press as they were too good for Rec­a­holics, win­ning 10-5, and be­ing un­beaten af­ter four rounds should be favoured for, though not guar­an­teed, a top-two po­si­tion.

In the other round 4 match, Mon­grels did what was needed to re­deem them­selves af­ter their pre­vi­ous week’s loss to Stick­men, and the Ball Break­ers were smashed 14-1 by the more pol­ished Mon­grels out­fit.

Stick­men have a bye next week and a good win by War­riors could see them leap to top spot on per­cent­age as they are the only other un­de­feated team.
