Pilbara News - - SPORT - Ali­cia Per­era

The un­de­feated Wick­ham Wolves league team mauled Kar­ratha Kats 16.13 (109) to 4.9 (33) in their round 7 meet­ing on Fri­day night.

Kats trailed from the start in the match on Wick­ham Oval, go­ing to the first quar­ter break down 0.4 (4) to the Wolves’ 3.2 (20), and never re­ally man­aged to take off from there. Their best per­for­mance was in the sec­ond quar­ter when they scored two goals.

Mean­while, Wolves swooped on the op­por­tu­nity for another big win in the wake of their round six thump­ing of the Dampier Sharks and kicked away to a 76-point win by the end of the game. Jeremy Re­gan and Braden Dhu were the win­ning side’s top scor­ers.

Af­ter round 7 the Wolves league side re­mains un­de­feated on top of the lad­der, while Kats are sit­ting in third po­si­tion, only trail­ing South Hed­land Swans on per­cent­age. How­ever, it was the Kats that reigned supreme in the night’s re­serves match, where the re­serves lad­der lead­ers took down the Wolves 13.10 (88) to 2.5 (17).

Both teams started slow, but while the Kats hit their straps af­ter the first quar­ter the Wolves stalled.

Kar­ratha kicked another three ma­jors in the sec­ond term to be up 4.5 (29) to 1.2 (8) by half-time and sus­tained the mo­men­tum for the rest of the game, cap­ping it off with a strong fi­nal quar­ter in which they slot­ted seven goals.

Dy­lan Hansen and Shaun Der­schow were the Kats’ best goal kick­ers, scor­ing four each.
