Broome Advertiser - - SPORT - Carly Laden

An in­tense re­match be­tween Broome floorball’s top sides re­sulted in The Freestylers pulling off the vic­tory and win­ning the premier­ship.

The Freestylers took on the for­mi­da­ble Krista once again in the grand fi­nal of the se­nior floorball com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 11.

A fast-paced start saw The Freestylers quick to build up a lead while Krista would be quick to re­spond late in the quar­ter,

In the sec­ond quar­ter, The Free-stylers ex­tended their lead even fur­ther although Krista would give them a scare with signs of an early come­back.

As Krista be­gan to step up the pres­sure, they man­aged to work their way up to just two points be­hind The Freestylers at half­time.

Af­ter the main break, the matchup be­gan to look like a stale­mate as both teams worked hard to keep each there score­less.

How­ever, The Freestylers would give them­selves more of an ad­van­tage head­ing into the fi­nal quar­ter with a late goal.

In the fi­nal quar­ter, the in­tense match-up con­tin­ued with both teams em­ploy­ing quick passes, strong de­fen­sive pres­sure and im­pres­sive saves at goal.

Krista were quick to con­tinue mak­ing their come­back with two more goals, although the bat­tle would soon be­come a strug­gle once again.

Spec­ta­tors were left on the edge of their seats when a goal for The Freestylers in the last two min­utes seemed to be­gin clos­ing the door on Krista.

Once the fi­nal siren sounded, it would be The Freestylers that would hold on to win 10-8, bring­ing the thrilling sea­son to a close.

Else­where, Thun­der were named the in­au­gu­ral ju­nior pre­miers af­ter de­feat­ing Thun­der 12-3 in a one-sided af­fair.
