Warriors upset Wreckers as Stickmen impress
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.
