Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

After a short break for school hol­i­days, floorball has re­turned to the Broome Re­cre­ation and Aquatic Cen­tre, with six teams bat­tling it out for supremacy.

The Freestylers, The Strangers and Pi­rates all got them­selves off to great starts in round 1 of com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 9, notch­ing big wins.

The Freestylers, look­ing to re­deem them­selves from their third-place play-off per­for­mance in Septem­ber, made a big splash in the new sea­son, record­ing a 18-4 win over Flo­rence and the Ma­chines.

The Strangers had a sim­i­lar start to their sea­son, de­feat­ing Catalina Pel­i­cans 14-4, while Pi­rates held off The Stingers to ob­tain a 12-8 vic­tory.

A new fea­ture of the new sea­son is the in­tro­duc­tion of a ju­nior floorball com­pe­ti­tion, com­pris­ing Thun­der, Bul­lets and The Flamin Rub­ber Ducks.

While The Flamin Rub­ber Ducks had a bye to be­gin their sea­son, Thun­der smashed Bul­lets 14-2 in the in­au­gu­ral ju­nior match.
