Cream of the crop bat­tle for top spot

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

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.
