Cream of the crop battle for top spot
Last week the Karratha and Districts Eight Ball Association Calcutta was held at the Karratha Rec Club, with the cream of Karratha eight ball association in attendance and four competitors from Port Hedland.
The Hedland participants had an influence, but in the end the day belonged to Sean Socorro, who was too good for last year’s winner. Allen Rivers. In the weekly matches, Punishers have continued to improve and last week needed to beat Wreckers to give themselves a realistic chance of holding onto fourth position.
Wreckers were always considered the most likely side to complete the top four, with Warriors, Mongrels and Stickmen almost certainties.
But the recent results of Punishers, who had pushed themselves into fourth, had a few wondering about their credentials.
Punishers opened the match on fire, winning the first round 4-1.
In a fight-back, Wreckers then won the next 3-2 but still needed a 4-1 result in the last to take the match.
It was a 3-2 result to Punishers, who now have a twomatch lead over Wreckers in their fight for a top-four position and continue to impress.
In other matches, Warriors were far too polished for Recaholics 11-4. Stickmen easily accounted for Slayers 10-5 and Mongrels received a forfeit from Animals.
