Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

The Sharks have con­tin­ued to strengthen their hold over the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter a 9-3 win over the Score­gasms.

Af­ter a brief strug­gle be­tween both teams, Shark Jor­dan Ba­con broke through the bar­ri­ers to score the first try of the match.

It looked as though Ba­con was go­ing to be hard to stop af­ter he scored two more tries, un­til Joely Dep got the Score­gasms on the board with two tries of her own.

The match soon be­came in­tensely com­pet­i­tive as a try from Wade Clark drew the Score­gasms level with the Sharks, un­til Ba­con scored an­other try to close the first half at 4-3.

The half-time break seemed to work in the Sharks’ favour as they en­tered the sec­ond half more deter­mined than ever to get their ninth-straight win.

The half be­gan with an­other strug­gle for both teams to break through un­til Shark Lach­lan Bon­ner scored the first try.

The Sharks con­tin­ued to build mo­men­tum as they quickly gained ground in of­fence and stepped up the de­fen­sive pres­sure on the Score­gasms.

Bon­ner, Skye Jamieson and Ba­con con­tributed to ex­tend­ing the Sharks’ lead to six points.

As fa­tigue be­gan to set in, the pres­sure from the Sharks was too much for the Score­gasms, who were left score­less in the sec­ond half.
